My husband did a surf lesson out of Dominical and had a blast, then we did the dive out of Uvita to Cano Island. It was just us and another couple. We saw dolphins on the way and the guides were entertaining and awesome. Very patient with me, a novice diver. We saw a few white tip reef sharks, which... More

If it weren't for the boat crew we had, I may have rated this company just average for not being so organized. We planned our whole trip based on diving in Cano Island. We made sure to call and reserve over the phone and reconfirmed two more times. We contacted the office in Dominical a week before our trip and... More

We dove at Cano Island with Costa Rica Dive and Surf and it was in my top 5 dives ever. (I would give them 5 stars for the diving but only 3 or 4 for surfboards, hence the 4 star review.) The visibility and water temperature were fantastic and Cano Island has a ton of reef fish and coral to... More

There's a reason fat, fifty year olds take up golf rather than surfing. However thanks to Gaby and her incredible patience I managed to catch waves and ride them in - admittedly on my knees. Great morning. Many thanks.

They have fun, knowledgeable divemasters, a comfortable boat, an experienced captain, and great equipment. They'll take you to the best dive sites at Cano Island, and you may even sees turtles, dolphins or whales along the way. They also offer... More

We were on our honeymoon and I fought having to do the dive for the first part of our vacation - I was very nervous about it! But after meeting all of the staff at Costa Rica Dive and Surf, I felt a little better about it. Miguel was the best instructor I have ever had and if I ever... More

My husband and I dove on our honeymoon 32.5 years ago but I haven't been since then. We were in CR to celebrate my husband's birthday with our grown children and their significant others who had never dove. Miguel and Jan couldn't have been more patient, helpful, encouraging and supportive. They made sure we had a safe , enjoyable experience... More

Our family of four divers and one snorkeling participated in the Cano Island dive trip. Everyone in the crew was welcoming and friendly. They were polite and knowledgable. We first dove the "garden" which had large schools of fish, including jacks and rays. We also saw a white tipped reef shark. Our second dive was at the "pinnacle". I cannot... More
