We were two experienced divers coming to Playa Hermosa for a week, bringing along our recently certified teenage daughter to experience her first ocean/boat/night diving. Bobbie Jo organized three diving outing for us. The boat, captain, mates, and the local dive masters she had contracted were very accommodating, highly competent and made these first "real" dive trips a wonderful experience... More

Thanks Bobbie Jo for a private tour of the waters off the coast of Playa Hermosa and Playa Del Coco! I was fortunate to have the opportunity to dive with Bobbie Jo while on a much needed girls getaway. The rest of my group did not dive but Bobbie Jo was kind enough to have me picked up and dive...

Bobby Jo's crew was so nice and very helpful with everything during my first few dives! They helped point out white tipped sharks, eagle rays, and eels. The visibility on my first ever dive was fantastic and the water temperature was perfect. My instructor was super patient and so kind, I felt really comfortable in the water at all times.... More

Bobbie Jo was a really amazing guide. She knew the ins and outs of the water. I would recommend staying at the guilded iguana, really the whole package she puts together was great!!! The only thing I could ask for would be some surfing waves. I would only recommend staying here one night if you are a surfer.

What an adventure. Bobbie Joe did everything she said she would and more. Se booked my hotel for us, VERY nice place, picked us up from the beach and took us out on the dive boat for 3 dives. Saw loads of wildlife including 8 or 9 white tip reef sharks just as she predicted would be in the spot... More

While in Costa Rica we decided to give my daughter the "Bubble Maker" experience which is a PADI dive discovery program for 8-10yr olds. We found Bobbie-Jo here on Trip Advisor and we are soooo glad we did! She was wonderful. I really cannot say enough. She was patient, understanding, and you could tell she really had a blast working... More

We just got back from spending 8 days in Playa Hermosa. All the arrangements were set-up by Bobbie Jo and she did a fantastic job. All the airport transfers, getting picked up at the hotel every morning and returned at the end of the day. It was three of us, inlcuding a 20 year old and a 12 year old.... More

Sirenas Diving Costa Rica formally Dive Safaris was great diving, friendly and helpful divemaster. As a PADI dive instructor, I was fortunate to have certified my 15year old son here with Sirenas. He loved the experience. Bobbie Jo was wonderful in setting our dives up. We will be back for more great diving with you.

The Diving Safaris trip was great. They worked hard to get me on a trip (last minute single) and an extra hour+ refresher course in the pool (which was no extra charge). Good guides, good company - I would recommend to anyone visiting Coco. The guides are easy on the eyes too, which is a bonus.
