We booked the 4 nights accommodation with 3 days of diving package. We had some bad luck with diving conditions; there was a lot of wind in the area and it resulted in very poor visibility. As a result, we ended up diving at the same dive sites 2 days in a row, and decided against the last day of... More

I hadn't dived in awhile and these guys were great!! They took the time to get me up and running and were super professional about it. They have good equipment, nice clean professional boats, great communication, and the dive shop in Coco was very well run!

I don't even know where to start. The most amazing crew. I did a refresh and advanced open water with several other dives these past two weeks. Esteban was my instructor .... what a human being. Salt water Buddha. Kind ... patient .. strict.. funny. Was right there when I freaked out on my deep dive and calmed me down.... More

We signed up to complete the PADI Open Water Scuba Diving certification. Our instructor Stephen (?spelling?) was amazing- very patient and thorough with his instructions. As a new diver who has a bit of claustrophobia, I was made to feel very secure and the detailed instructions really helped. We felt very safe at all times. In fact, all of the... More

I completed my PADI Open Water Scuba Diving certification at Deep Blue Diving. My friends (already certified divers) and I took a package which included accommodation at Hotel La Puerta Del Sol. Before our arrival, Oscar was very helpful with sharing information and answering any questions that we had. Arriving at the dive centre, I was a little apprehensive of... More

I did six dives in total, four with Jackson and two with Esteban. Jackson is... More

Made three trips to the Bat's with bullshark encounters each time. Twice we saw two giant pacific manta rays as well. On a trip to the Catalinas we also... More

I was so disappointed Very minimal gear is provided (no gloves or boots) The gear that is provided is of poor quality. The regulator had a fault so when I breathed in I would also get a mouthful of water Staff are u professional with very little regard for the wildlife Lots of other companies in the area! Go elsewhere

As a lifetime diver who's lucky enough to have travelled the world diving, and then some, recreational diving can sometimes prove boring, chaotic and experiencing the cocky kid who thinks he knows more than you. Thankfully, deep blue has none of these faults. We travelled for five consecutive days to bat islands to experience the bull sharks. Everyday our equipment... More
