We had the most wonderful time diving with Roberto and Michelle and his wife. They did everything they possibly could to make everything work out well for us and we are a family of 6 with the children aged 3, 5, 9 and 11 at the time. Our eldest son was having his first ever dive as his 11th birthday treat and he had a great time. They made sure everybody was included and Roberto took us out in his boat sightseeing when heavy rain delayed the dive by a day. Wonderful people who gave us wonderful memories. Can’t recommend this company enough.

We’ve snorkeled and I’ve dove in many places in the world and our experience here was one of the best. Michel and Ginette were wonderful. Their staff are highly experienced eco divers and marine biologists. They not only know their stuff but their first concern is about us learning the eco system here and the second is having a great experience. We spent at least an hour learning about all the fish, coral and sponges. Then went out on two dives that were amazing! Lost of fish, starfish, stingray, sea cucumbers, amazing coral and sponges and many many fish. Roberto is the best boat driver and loves to share is lifelong knowledge of the area. We’d highly recommend them to anyone wanting a great snorkel or dive in the islands of Bocas del Toros. They’ve also lived on the island for quite a few years and we’re great with giving us advice on places to tour, beaches to visit and restaurants to eat at on the island.

Looking to dive, went into Scuba 6 Eco diving, Decided to give it a shot, despite our personal negative experiences with the owners. Today we walked in and The owner literally turned and walked away when we said “Hello Michelle” to the owner. The interaction from Michelle felt completely hostile. Not what you would expect from a professional business, especially to other dive professionals. Definitely not who I would trust my safety under water with. All worked out for the best, had a phenomenal day with Bastimentos Scuba Diving. Great rate, fantastic knowledge from a local dive shop owner with huge experience. We will be spending the rest of our week diving with Bastimentos Scuba Diving and letting Scuba 6 eco diving revel in their hatred and unprofessionalism.

Amazing experience!! I took my PADI Open Water with scuba 6 and didn’t regret it from the first second. Michelle was an amazing instructor, making sure you understand the theory, combined with practical tips on how to be safe and experience the best whilst in the water. I made 6 dives during the course and enjoyed every one of them. I can’t recommend these guys enough!!

We highly recommend this place! Michelle took care of giving my boyfriend the Open Water Course while Roberto took me diving to other places. Jinette stayed in the center, but before every dive she gave us a talk about all the marine life that we would see in the places that we would visited. If you are looking for the word of the experience and interesting people to dive with go to SCUBA DIVE 6 👆🏽😉
