We really enjoyed snorkeling with them. They took out on the ocean to 2 different spots for a 30-min snorkeling each. The first spot was particularly good - clear water, many colorful fish, and even a friendly little shark. It made my day when I turned my head at one point and found myself schooling in a group of fish... More

I had the chance to dive twice with Pacific Coast Dive Center and had a great experience both days. The crew and dive masters were so friendly and helpful. I had not been diving for a few years and was a bit nervous the first day. I had no reason to worry! I felt safe at all times. We saw... More

Had a great day diving with these guys. It was low season so I was the only diver (along with 6 snorkeller) so I got very personalised service. To be honest its not the most scenic diving as it was rainy season and visibility was low. But still saw some rays and a shark and plenty of fish. I'm told... More

My husband and I just spent two days diving with Pacific Coast Dive Center. These gentlemen are the best in every single way. They have everything very well organized, on-time and are very professional. They do absolutely everything for you before, during and after the dive. Everyone is assigned a task and they all work together well to make the... More

i did 2 dives with pacific coast and enjoyed it very much. Everything was excellent including all equipment and the boat. Dive master was very informative. Only suggestion would be to take equipment from divers while still in the water as it makes it easier for us older divers to get back in the boat. All in all, a first... More

My brother and I both went on our first dive and we were thrilled with the experience! We were lucky enough to have Julian as our instructor. He was very patient and calm with us and especially me as I was quite nervous. His guidance in the water put me greatly at ease. The crew on the boat were very... More

We went on two separate dives with Pacific Coast Dive Center in July and both were fantastic! The day before our dive Mauricio came by our house (he happened to live close to our rental) to introduce himself and confirm the pick up time. What exceptional service. He arrived on time, drove us to the dive center and led one... More

I want to be as fair as possible to Pacific Coast Divers but also very CLEAR for those who read my reviews, so that they can make better decisions in snorkeling. I only wish I'd have read reviews and asked more questions but I let our travel agency make all of our reservations. With this said, my review is strictly... More
