Description: Sirenas Diving Costa Rica is a small and personalized diving, snorkeling...
Sirenas Diving Costa Rica is a small and personalized diving, snorkeling and fishing company that is family owned and operated. We do not have a physical office, our office is on the internet and on the boat. Bobbie Jo, began in Costa Rica with Diving Safaris Costa Rica more than 17 years ago. As time passed by...Managing a big operation she realized that she wanted something smaller and more personalized...Less stress... More fun... Diving with her customers and friends. So she closed Diving Safaris and began new with Sirenas Diving Costa Rica! "One of the things I LOVE about diving is the weightlessness of being under the water and how we all feel like we are flying, so we jokingly said we were in mermaid school (esquela de las Sirenas). We are affiliated with PADI for more than 17 years. Our boat is located in Playa del Coco, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. We offer a variety of PADI courses, from Discover Scuba through Rescue. There are more than 25 different local and advanced dive sites, including Catalina Islands and Islas Murcielagos (Bat Islands).We go diving every day (except for Christmas Day and New Year's Day). With the seasons and water conditions changing so much, we have a variety of marine life, including: mantas, whale sharks, turtles, bull sharks, white tip reef sharks, seahorses, thousands of schooling rays and much, MUCH, more. Sirenas Diving Costa Rica is a new name that comes with 17 years of experience from Diving Safaris. We will continue to be one the best diving companies offering personalized dive vacations to our customers and friends from around the world.

Small, very personalized diving experience. My teenage son & I did our open-water checkout dives here, to get PADI certified. Owner personally trained us & her crew is terrific. Definitely recommend Sirenas!

Visited Coco in late July and went diving with Bobbie Joe 4 days. Our family had a so much fun diving with her. She runs a first class operation. My wife and I plus our 2 kids (14, 12) really enjoyed diving in Costa Rica and will be back next year to dive with Bobbie Joe.

I was supposed to be diving with my daughter, but food poisoning the day before put pay to that. The short notice change of plan was not a problem for Bobbie Jo and her partner. There were only three of us on in the three dives, so it was relaxing. Bobbie Jo has sharp eyes so she was able to... More

Two of us snorkeled and two of us dived. One of divers was my daughter and she had never dived before. Bobby Jo tended to her with great concern and attention. For my daughter, it couldn't have been a better introduction to diving. I was the other diver. I tagged along underwater, which was exactly how I wanted it. I... More

My partner and I are "seniors" and had not gone diving for 7 years. Wanted an experienced, thorough Divemaster to get us back in the water.

Amazing!!! Bobbie and her team are the best! Bobbie has a keen underwater eye that will help you see more underwater animals than you thought possible. I was hoping to see a few things while diving, and ended up seeing everything on my list! I can not recommend her and her team enough!

There are bigger dive operations serving the Papagayo area, with more and bigger boats, but what sets Sirenas apart is the level of service. Bobbie Jo deals with the customer directly and promptly by phone or email. When you dive with Sirenas, there is a good chance that your guide/divemaster will be Bobbie Jo, who has many years of experience... More
