We spent two wonderful diving days with Rey! The underwater world was amazing (beautiful colorful corals with schools of atlantic spade fish, surgeon fish, squirrel fish, french angel fish, giant crabs, lots of lobsters and much more), I hunted a lionfish myself which we took home and ate for dinner - great experience too! And in addition to the beautiful dives, we spent the surface interval on paradise beaches like Playa Blanca. Rey is a very experienced instructor. We can only recommend diving in Portobello, especially with Rey!

It’s hard to describe how wonderful time we had at Rey’s. He constantly makes sure you have everything you need and that you are enjoying yourself. Equipment is top notch (we even got pro scuba computer!). We went to four different spots in two days, seen some nice corals, colorful fish and eventually went spear hunting lion fish which was definitely the top call of my whole vacation in Panama. I can’t recommend Rey high enough, simply go there and see for yourself. If I’ll ever come back to Panama, this spot is on the top of my list.

Golden Frog Scuba was great, from start to finish! It was easy to book our dives and Rey worked with us to accommodate our schedule. He's an excellent instructor - very knowledgable, relaxed, and professional. We had a group of 5 divers with experience ranging from just getting certified to marine biologist and all of us felt comfortable and safe in the water. I highly recommend diving with Golden Frog Scuba!!

Rey communicated well previous to our trip. Rey took 3 divers and 3 snorkelers out for a3 dive trip. The snorkelers were dropped at the beach by Drake's island, given gear and us divers went off to Drake's island to dive. The reef was in good shape with a decent amount of fish. We did our surface intervals at the beach with great pineapples. Rey patiently walked my sister through her first attempt at putting scuba gear on in the shallows. Second and third dives of the day were great as well. The restaurant on site was not very good and would not recommend. I returned for another day a trip out to tres hermanos and saliminda. Well worth it, great coral, some current, good vis and tons and tons of fish. Will definitely visit Rey again when we visit Panama again.
