We dove with Alex and crew 2 days and everything about it was amazing! They do the work for you and you enjoy the diving :) Alex is great about showing you the active sea life, it sure was plentiful! Very accommodating crew, makes you feel like family. Highly recommend!

We did a Discover Scuba Dive with the Diving Pirates and to this day are still amazed by the calmness and great teaching skills of Alex. We felt very well taken care of and had a lot of fun with the entire crew. Not least because Alex is such a cool and relaxed guy we have now made a month later our Open Water Diver certification. If you are ever on Bocas del Toro and are thinking about diving, you should definitely go to the Diving Pirates! From us an absolute recommendation you will not regret it! To Alex, Beatrix and the whole Pirate team thanks for everything!!! Go diving and become pirates!!! Jenni & Kevin

I really enjoyed diving with Francesco and our captain Cristobal. The guys were super fun and professional. Francesco shared all his knowledge with me and always took great care of me. After the dive Cristobal made Sure we get some vitamins and served us fruits on the boat :D it was not only diving but definitively an amazing time with the two and I really hope Ill See them very soon 😁 the dive Shop feels like home, you can relax there after the dive and get a shower + the guys are great company. Thank you for that 🥰

I went to Diving Pirates to get my PADI open water. I got very scared on some of the skills I needed to practice underwater. The WHOLE team encouraged me, gave me tips and made me feel at ease to dare try again. When I was finally ready to go back in the water for my second dive a week later, Francesco (my instructor) did everything to make me feel safe and also have some fun. From that point on, I just wanted to keep going back! And yes, I now have my certification! I have no doubt that it’s the only place I could have made it thanks to their professionalism, patience, skills and constant laughter. I also did a night snorkel that was really fun. :)
