Scuba Coiba is my favorite shop there, the owner Herbie and the entire team is just wonderful! The Orca is a really cool boat with a rood in case it rains and the underwater world is just spectacular!

Scuba Coiba is a very professional set up from my first emails to Herbie, to the dive briefings from Cedric, to the fabulous food cooked by Miriam on Coiba and the boat captains who foresaw any bad weather coming in. Best dive boat in Coiba! My husband and I booked the multi day trip and were very glad we did.... More

My wife and I have dove with these folks before and had a really good experience. This time the same. Everything was great and had some of the clearest water I have seen anywhere in Panama. Professional, friendly and highly competent guides and crew. They split the group into 2 boats based on experience which is key and not always... More

We were diving with Scuba Coiba in January and we had an awsome time with them. First we went on 3 day trips and then on a 3day/2night trip sleeping on Coiba island. This was amazing as the island is very beautiful, the food was delicious and you can also see some wildlife like 2 kind of monkeys, agutis and... More

Took a four day/3 night multi dive trip with Scuba Coiba The whole organisation was super efficient and herbie also helped with hotels, transport and any other typical questions. I have been to Coiba before and it's a special place to dive. The boat trip, diving and island stay were all brilliantly planned as much depends on the prevailing conditions... More

An overdue review for this awesome experience. We visited Santa Catalina to become scuba certified. Cedric was our instructor and he was terrific. I was very nervous about actually diving. My husband and boys had no fear. Cedric made sure that we ALL had the best experience. My fears were completely unfounded because we were in such capable hands. I... More

We had the pleasure of doing a three-tank dive in Coiba with Scuba Coiba. This was the most professional experience I have had so far diving in Latin America. Everything worked perfectly, the staff was friendly and highly professional, especially our dive-master Nick (Nicholas) with good briefing before the dives and professional yet relaxed lead during the dives. Thanks to... More

Scuba Coiba has a very professional and friendly owner & staff and the dive sites are awasome. We even saw a whale shark and a big school of white tip sharks at the Bufet site. Loved every part of the 6 dives with Scuba Coiba. Thank you Herbie and everybody on your team for all these beautiful memories! Hope to... More

I can however say I'm extremely pleased I chose Scuba Coiba, both the service and diving were excellent, If you not sure who to go with and visiting Santa Catalina, these guys are the original centre and...
