Just experienced a trip to Isla del Cano Island with Costa Rica Dive & Surf out of Dominical, Costa Rica, this past June 3, 2014. Although the day excursion to Isla del Cano was worth the $160 for a two tank dive, it could have been better logistically and from a stand point of service. First of all, I booked... More

I did the dive to Cano Island for my first post open water certification dive. Got to 55 feet. It was great. The dive masters, Miguel and Roberto and were knowledgeable and guided us to to great spots where we saw lots of fish and sharks. It was the green season and visibility was short. But there was still to... More

We dove the Cano Islands last week during our vacation in Manuel Antonio. Roberto was our dive master. He is an excellent guide! All of the guides were superb. There were four adults and 4 children in our party. The children (ages 11, 11, and 12) are junior open water certified and were able to dive with us as well.... More

My wife and I came to Costa Rica with family as a getaway trip. My wife was interested in the discover course as she is not a certified diver as of yet but I am so we wanted to go on a dive that we could do together despite her lack of certification. So when we arrived we began talking... More

We did the all day tour to Caño Island scuba dive tour, and had an awesome experience! I was a first time scuba diver, and did a pool session with Marta the day before. Marta, Roberto, and Miguel were first class instructors. They always made me feel safe, were consummate professionals, and were personable and fun. One the hour long... More

What an amazing team of people: professional, excellent English, caring, kind and safe in and out of the water. I have taken snorkel trips to Cano Island with this tour company but this was a special event: my twelve year old daughter was finishing her PADI certification this summer with Costa Rica Dive and Surf. We are a diving family... More

This was our first official dive after certification and Roberto and Marta (sp?...Martha with a silent "h") did everything possible to make us feel comfortable. The boat ride to Cano was LONG AND BUMPY! It was close to 2 hrs there, the ride home wad closer to 1 hr 15 min...and much smoother. The lunch was vegetarian (YAY!) and very... More

We were 3 divers and 3 snorkelers in our immediate group, and two last minute divers joined us. Even though none of us were super experienced, Miguel and Roberto had amazing energy and were very safety conscious. The boat trip to Cano island was made even more exiting as we spotted dolphins who swam with our boat and surfed our... More

Miguel and Roberto were the perfect hosts and dive instructors. From setting up the excursion to the friendly service, we couldn't have asked for better guides. The diving was great - we were able to see white-tipped sharks, octopus, rock fish, rays, eels, sea turtles, as well as a large variety of other marine life. While Caño Island is very... More

We were with a large group so half of our boat was divers and the other half snorkelers. The dive masters were great and the service was good, but the boat ride was approx. 1.5 hours each way to Cano Island. We very much enjoyed ourselves, except for the sand fleas on the island, but the viability was not great... More
