“Pacific Coast of Costa Rica with Rich Coast Diving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Fantastic diving with a very professional group. I have been diving all over the world for over 40 years and diving the Northwest Coast of Costa Rica with Rich Coast Divers, especially Bats Island and the Big Scare, the marine life we observed was some of the best. My sons and I will have great memories and hope to make a return trip

“Best dive ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

My fiancee and I went diving during July. The service was really goo, very friendly people. We saw sharks, rays, octopuses, a turtle, several schools of fish, and a beautiful coral. We saw a sunken ship. The entire dive was amazing. The guide was really good and cautious, very respectful of the sea. At the end of the first dive my boyfriend proposed to me, and we are now engaged. The boat people and guide knew about it and helped him out. Best dive ever!

“Amazing diving with terrific people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Rich Coast Diving provided our group with an incredible week of diving and fun while in Playas del Coco, Costa Rica. Brenda and Martin run a great shop and can't do enough for their guests. Their staff is very knowledgeable, professional and quick with a smile, help or siting of that sea horse, eagle ray or shark that make your dive and trip amazing. We had a great group leading and assisting us--Yo, Laura, Jose, Maarten and Martin to name a few. They were especially patient and helpful with new divers. Brenda pulls together a great day on the party boat with diving and fun and dancing on our return. Martin lead us on a day of tubing, zip lining and a mud bath in the national forest that had us laughing the entire time. My husband and I travel a lot and have dived in many places and we count this at the top thanks to the Rich Coast Diving crew.

“Great team and great dives!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

I was in Playa del Coco for 5 days with a friend in July and we did 8 dives with Rich Coast Diving. The staff is great, by the second day we felt like we were part of the team! They mingle with the divers, they get as excited as us by what we see (we did see bull sharks...), and they are very professional and helpful. The equipment and boat is also great. I highly recommend diving with them.
