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

I went with three kids between the ages of 11-13. My oldest and I were already certified, while two of the boys were competing their open water dives. The staff, and particularly their dive master Risky, could not have been better. Professional, helpful and fun, Risky turned something the boys were nervous about into an amazing experience that they wanted... More

We dove with Aquacenter in April, and were lucky enough to have the entire boat just for the 2 of us, as no one else signed up for a dive that day. Luxury treatment: a captain and his helper, and a dive master just for 2 people! Risky, the dive master, knew the area quite well and helped us see... More

We went diving with Aquacenter in April 2014. Risky and Julian were both top notch Dive Masters. We are PADI certified but this was only our tenth dive, so we really appreciated their detailed instructions, patience, knowledge, upbeat spirit and kindness! They had all the equipment set up and ready to go for us upon boarding the boat. The captain... More

Everything was great, good boat, dive master, and diving, but after the diving was done, I counted my cash, and was surprised to be somewhat lighter. I knew this, because I had just been to the bank in Tamarindo. Should have left my cash with someone while diving, but didn't think it a problem. When I went back to speak... More

My wife and I have taken many scuba trips throughout the Pacific and Carribean (Guam, Thailand, Indonesia, St Lucia). Of all the shops we have gone diving with, Aquacenter was the most friendly and thorough we have ever dealt with!! They were friendly and courteous through the entirety of 2 trips we made with them, gave us a ride both... More

My wife and I had incredible dive with Aurelien and "Risky" (don't let the name scare you). Top notch standards, service, and knowledge. We saw an incredible amount of marine life, which between that and the service made this one of the best dives we've ever experienced. We thought everyone felt the same way on our dive, which is why... More
