This tour will come pick you up at your hotel in the morning and take you to Playa Flamingo to their office for equipment, then out to the marina. We made the mistake of going to Iguana Surf at 6:45 AM where we booked the tour instead of waiting at the hotel.. Needless to say we missed our free shuttle.... More

We had a great time and saw lots of sharks, eels, an octopus, a sting ray, and many fish. They took excellent care of us! Would recommend this crew for your dive!

On our penultimate day in tamarindo we decided to go for a snorkel. We were told that we would see plenty of fish but due to the volcanic stone there would be no coral. I had quite low expectations but once we were out on the boat the landscape was already worth the trip, the volcanic rock creates a very... More

I recently dove with Pacific Coast on 2 separate days. Each outing was a 2 tank excursion. The boat is large enough to accommodate divers and snorkels. I am an experienced diver and found the crew efficient and very professional. Often times there are compromises with divers and snorkeling aboard the same vessel, this was not the case. The dive...

Our dive masters and the boat crew were wonderful! Everyone was super nice and helpful and wanted to make sure that everyone had a great experience. I went diving with my family and got to see lots of sharks, seahorses, eels and other animals that I did not see in the other oceans that I have dived in. I highly... More

From the transportation from our hotel to the boat everything was perfect and pleasant. I was the diver and my wife was the snorkeler. They took care of my wife very well while she was snorkeling. We had two dive masters whose main concern was my safety. Equipment was changed and checked thoroughly before hand. Our two dives today at... More

I just completed six dives with Pacific Coast Divers. The marine life on and around the Catalina Islands is healthy and only about a 40 min boat ride from the marina. We came face to face with tons of fish, a dozen rays, ½ dozen sharks and 2 sea horses. One sea horse was approx. 10 inches tall. It was... More

Went diving with them on 2 trips and had a great experience. Was picked up at our house and dropped back off by Pacific Coast. Did 4 great dives with them on 2 separate days and both were just awesome. The dive masters and crew were very professional, did their jobs with enthusiasm and provided great dives.

We are so happy that you enjoyed your time with us at Pacific Coast Dive Center. We are lucky that our dive guides, despite some of them diving here nearly everyday for 9+yrs, remain enthusiastic about all the marine life we have here. Keep blowing bubbles! More
