We spent 4 days diving with Aquacenter and couldn't have been happier with the experience! Risky and Armando were excellent dive masters and brought us to a variety of dive spots near Catalina Islands. They were extremely attentive during the dives and pointed out many fish that we would not have seen. I didn't know what to expect with diving... More

My husband and I signed up for scuba diving from our resort at Flamingo Beach. We met Risky (yes, his name is ironic) when we signed up and he also led our dives the next day. He is a great host and leader. I was a little nervous when entering the water since it had been a few years since... More

I'm certified and my wife is not. I had never been in the open water so we took the resort course. Armando was great. Patient and very nice. Owner picked us up from Tamarindo and after the pool portion went out and saw two beautiful reefs at 30 and 40 feet. Perfect for everyone.

I've been on other dives but Risky helped to make sure that we were FULLY prepared for the experience. Even more importantly, he was very focused on making sure we were shown so many things during the dive that we otherwise would have missed. The educational aspect of the experience plus the great professionalism and incredible dive environment make this... More

My family stayed at Flamingo Beach Resort and my 15 year old daughter had her first diving lesson. Initially she was only planning to take the introductory course but after 1 day with the excellent dive master, Risky, she decided to become fully certified as an open water diver. It took her 3 1/2 days and she had 4 ocean... More

After diving with Aquacenter, scheduled a class for introduction to Scuba for our Grand Children. They were introduced to the basics (in a pool) and had a great time. Their instructor, Risky, was very good with them. They want to do it again, in the ocean. Thanks Risky!

This was one of if not the best dive I have ever been on. I have over 500 dives in my book and this is the top of the list. Risky, the dive master, is wonderful. Great fish and lots of stuff to see, sharks, octopus, and tons of little fish. Thanks for a great time. I will see you... More

2 days of 2 tank AM dives with Aquacenter Diving on June 11&12, 2014. Everyone was great and excellent dive master, "Risky". He was very enthusiastic about diving and went out of his way to take care of us. Lots of great sightings including white tip reef sharks, turtle, moray eels, manta ray (out of season, so special sighting), nurse... More

I just got certified last summer, and went on my first dive last week with dive master, Risky! I felt very comfortable with him. He was professional, knowledgable, and made me feel at ease. Thanks for a great first dive!!

I enjoyed very personal attention with this shop. I had anticipated my 3mm full suit would be sufficient, but with the 77 degree water temp it would have been too cold. They loaned me an extra shorty. The owner picked me up in the lobby of my resort and was always right on time. The guides are very good and... More
