We had the pleasure of spending the last month at Divers Paradise. I had the joy of once again working with Leandro Mora, instructor extraordinaire! Leandro has been my mentor through 4 certifications and 5 specialties. (55 dives) If you want professional plus feeling like family, this is your one stop shop! All the Dive Masters and Instructors are the ultimate in knowledge and care for their divers! I have had dives with Kelly, Flor, Flor-man (lol) Marine and Dive Masters in training, NEVER disappointed! Deep dives to night dives you will be pleased with the service and care of this dive center.

I did my open water padi certification at the Bocas dive center and it couldn't have been more fun, the staff was super nice and I learned a lot in only two days of diving!

Two wonderful days so far scuba diving with Bocas Dive Center on Monday and Tuesday November 22 & 23. My dive leader was Flo Azul Odasi, who was kind, professional, and fun. The equipment and resort are all top notch, with wonderful warm showers and clean towels to enjoy as soon as your dive day is completed. They also ask you to enjoy a hot or cold beverage, as you discuss what kind of fishy’s encounters you had. I highly recommend using Bocas Dive Ceter for your next scuba diving adventure.

I had a wonderful experience with Bocas Dive centre. I did my advanced open water course and also did more dives with them beyond my course. They are wonderful. Beautiful, organized and great facility by the water. You can comfortably change, chill and hang out before and after your dive. Everybody is great, friendly and professional. I did my course with Leandro. He was an amazing instructor and dive master. Couldn’t be happier about my experience there.
