“A great dive center and staff on Bocas del toro island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Recently I took the PADI advanced open water, everything was great. Nice and different spot on each dive, also night dive was amazing. Very kind crew, they had some fresh and juicy pinneaple for the people on board. The boat is very comfortable and the equipment for diving very new.

Sebastian is a great instructor, very pattient and always put safety on first. I got an email confirmation from PADI the day after I leave Bocas with my new certification.

I will back to dive with them next time in Bocas.

“Great for Kids and families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Ben taught the free diving course to my teenaged sons. He was fun, patient, sensitive and responsible. Later the entire family went snorkeling with some of the crew. All of the crew at BDC seemed to care for the people who want to dive and snorkel, and showed great respect for the water and marine life. I loved that the staff members were genuinely nice to my kids, environmentally responsible and sensitive to leaving no impact.
