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

I did my very first open water dive in Cano Island with these guys and they were absolutely awesome! Martha and Roberto clearly love their job and they will do their best (and trust me - they know how to do it) that you would love it too. As it was my very first time and I have some issues... More

Me and some buddies were in Dominical from 4/22 to 4/29. During our stay, we happened upon the Costa Rica Dive and Surf shop. We met Bob and decided to sign up for a scuba class, an open water dive and then some surf lessons. I did the class with Marta, did the open water dive with Marta and Roberto... More

I dove with Roberta and Marta earlier this month and had a great trip to Cano island. They were helpful and professional and looked after both the divers and the environment. They were helpful to the kids and old timers alike. Very well done.

I got my Open Water Diver Certification with CRDS in Dominical and am super happy that I did!!! Marta was patient, clear, funny and encouraging. Everyone working with CRDS was knowledgeable about the marine life and history of the national marine sanctuary where we dove. And the lunch they provided was spot on!!! http://www.costaricadiveandsurf.com/

My boyfriend and I were looking for surf lessons and happened to randomly choose these guys. We totally lucked out! The instructor was very knowledgeable and cool, and we had an awesome lesson. Bob made our arrangements, and he was very helpful and friendly. He got us scheduled in less than an hour, and was very accommodating. The best part... More

Super awesome:) Exteemaly professional and well organized team. I loved diving... More
