Just wanted to take a minute and let everyone know about our recent trip to Costa Rica. We had the opportunity to dive with Bobbi Jo and Brayan. Bobbi Jo was very accommodating and spent the extra time to ensure that we were comfortable. Due to some previous reservation issues she was able to adjust her schedule to allow us... More

We just completed the Discover diving with Bobbie Jo and Kelly. My husband and I had both dived before but have not gotten certified yet. I had emailed Bobbie Jo before we headed to Costa Rica to book. Good thing I did as they book up fast and after spending the day with them I can see why. Kelly was... More

I took my niece to Costa Rica for her birthday present, and wanted to introduce her to diving. After reading the good reviews here, I contacted the owner, Bobbie Jo, to arrange our trip. She was very responsive and flexible with arrangements. The dive master and other divers were friendly and laid back, making the trip even more enjoyable. After... More

Started early in the morning at our hotel with the training session... Very comfortable learning the equipment and the rules for diving. Then off for 2 great dives. The instructor and staff were amazing. Couldn't ask for more!

Had a very good experience with Diving Safaris; very efficient operation. The dive master was excellent at finding interesting creatures for us -- frog fish, nudibranches, he even orchestrated a hunting scene with a small fish and a big fish! Lots of fun, and very comfortable.

I was able to do my advanced certification dives with Diving Safaris over Christmas along with my daughter and son in law doing their introduction to scuba as well. The dives were great especially the 2 dives at the Catalina's. We missed seeing the mantas that had been there earlier but the abundance of sharks and aquatic life made up... More

I came to Costa Rica with zero diving experience, and I completed my OWD program early in December 2013. The competent, friendly and helpful staff of Diving Safaris made my entry into the world of diving a very rewarding experience. Tyler, our diving instructor, did an excellent job of teaching, demonstrating and reviewing all the skills required for the OWD... More

I can write a lot of tekst but that isn't necessary: good staff, good/ new stuff, friendly people, biggest boot of this area, food, drinks etc. Diving is good here. The visibility is sometimes not so good (max 10mtr) but we knew that in advance. Sharks, rays, nudi's, seahorses and many schools of fishes. So, yes, we would recommend them... More

The group at Diving Safaris was great! The divemasters were very nice and did not hesitate to assist when needed. Unfortunately, the diving was not great due to poor visibility on the second day of diving. However, that is simply what you get in Costa Rica. We saw a lot of white tip reef sharks! I would definitely use this... More
