We took a dive trip to the Cano Islands. The trip was well run and the staff was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. The dive at Cano islands was awesome with sea turtles, sharks, moray eels and coral reefs with all of the regular fish! We highly recommend the dive operator and the Cano Island dive tour.

This place has a great atmosphere. The staff if friendly and helpful. The prices are pretty reasonable too. The surf lessons we took were great! The surf instructors are excellent, positive, and actually help you learn how to surf. (Thanks, Oscar!) The snorkel trip to Caño Island was amazing! All of the staff on this trip were great!

Overall the staff is very professional, the dive gear is top notch (but as a snorkeler I minimally expected a dry snorkel, which I did not get), the boat was nice, island was beautiful. We saw turtles and whales on the way to and from the island which was the highlight of the trip. Cons: it's a rough 1.5hr boat... More

Went diving to Caño Island and the whole trip was amazing. The dive was epic, great visibility, and lots of sea life: sharks, turtles, rays, and all sorts of fish. We even saw some whales on the way to the island. The whole crew at CR Dive and Surf are very professional, friendly and very passionate about what they do.... More

A great experience from start to finish with Costa Rica dive and surf. Really easy to deal with booking via email and Michael the owner was great to deal with in the shop in Dominical, even suggesting a few local attractions to check out that aren't in guide books. We were picked up on the morning of our dive in... More

We had booked a dive tour with this company and everything was going all right until our way back. There was an abandoned boat drifting and the guide, Roberto, decided to claim it and tug it. This caused our boat to slow down considerably which made the way back a lot longer. We complained to Roberto who was very belligerent... More

This was the best snorkeling experience we have ever had. We had a group of 22 so the Company provided two boats. We departed at the same time and had the time of our lives. Yes, the boat trip to Cano Island is a little long, about an hour or so and a bit bumpy but WELL worth it! The... More

We had an amazing time getting our open water certification! My son is only 10 so we did our pool dives and book work in the states. I was a little nervous when we got there but Marta was so sweet she put me at ease immediately. Marta dove with us on all 4 dives walking us through the process... More

On Thursday March 5th - The trip started out with a bang from Costa Rica Dive and Surf as they said "Welcome to our office!" It was a group of 5 adults plus 2 small children along with the crew of Costa Rica Dive and Surf in a boat heading out on the warm blue Pacific towards Canos Island. The... More

7 of us went on a day trip with these guys to Isla de Canos. We left from Uvita at about 8am returning at around 2:30pm. Some of us dived the reef others just snorkelled. First of all its a great boat with a big engine (250hp) so you cover the ground really quickly. The dive was very well led,... More
