Catalina Islands is a great place to dive and the pacific costa rica dive center has a great boat and professional crew. We saw a water snake, a manta, white tip sharks, morraines, turtles and tons of different fishes... all great...some things to improve: 1) they should not leave after the dives without proper checking that everyone is onboard, happenend...

I became a certified diver with Hana. She made me feel at ease and that I was being trained by a very competent person who loves to laugh and have a good time throughout the training. The rest of the staff is just as incredible!! They are all very professional and make sure the clients have everything that is needed.... More

We booked a snorkel trip with Pacific Coast Dive Center and had a couple of first time snorkelers with us. We all had our own snorkel equipment and they provided flotation devices for our weaker swimmers. They went over the basics of hand signs, techniques and safety as we went out to the snorkel spot. As soon as I went... More

When everything is fine it's easy to provide good service. I believe the real test is "Can that professionalism be maintained under pressure..." Pacific Coast Dive Center in Playa Flamingo came up ace's! My first of two tanks my reg started blowing air just as I started descending Manuel was at my side almost as quickly as I discovered my...

I only have six dives under my belt and no longer have my dive buddy; therefore, I was a little nervous about going it alone. First, I must say the staff and crew were so friendly, informative and professional. The boat was in great condition and very clean. Giovanni took the time to reacquaint everyone with the signals, and basic... More

The team at Pacific Coast Dive Centre are really great! I was staying at the Westin with a big group for a wedding. I was the only diver with the group, and after doing some research, I found that PCDC had the best reviews so I booked with them for May 5, 2014. Miguel picked me up from the Westin... More

We were hoping to snorkel off the beach, but it was too rough so we booked Pacific Coast to take us to Catalina Island. The boat ride to the island was great - we saw dolphins and manta rays flying up in the air. The divers and snorkelers were dropped off in separate but close locations at Catalina Island. They...
