Sirenas Diving Costa Rica is a small and personalized diving, snorkeling and fishing company that is family owned and operated. We do not have a physical office, our office is on the internet and on the boat.

Bobbie Jo, began in Costa Rica with Diving Safaris Costa Rica more than 17 years ago. As time passed by...Managing a big operation she realized that she wanted something smaller and more personalized...Less stress... More fun... Diving with her customers and friends. So she closed Diving Safaris and began new with Sirenas Diving Costa Rica! "One of the things I LOVE about diving is the weightlessness of being under the water and how we all feel like we are flying, so we jokingly said we were in mermaid school (esquela de las Sirenas).

We are affiliated with PADI for more than 18 years. Our boat is located in Playa del Coco, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. We offer a variety of PADI courses, from Discover Scuba through Rescue. There are more than 25 different local and advanced dive sites, including Catalina Islands and Islas Murcielagos (Bat Islands).We go diving every day (except for Christmas Day and New Year's Day). With the seasons and water conditions changing so much, we have a variety of marine life, including: mantas, whale sharks, turtles, bull sharks, white tip reef sharks, seahorses, thousands of schooling rays and much, MUCH, more.

Sirenas Diving Costa Rica is a new name that comes with 18 years of experience from Diving Safaris. We will continue to be one the best diving companies offering personalized dive vacations to our customers and friends from around the world.

Had a great time and my wife and I dove for 5 days. The crew were delightful to be with. Helpful but kept things very easy going.

We did 2 local dives with Sirenas Diving & were amazed at how much there is to see even without the coral that we are used to. We saw a variety of rays, puffer fish, star fish, sea urchins, flounder, stargazer, eels, lobster, harlequin shrimp, sea snake, & an octopus besides large schools of fish. We wish we had more...
