We dove with Sirenas in August 2021. Scott was our dive master and he was awesome to dive with. He prioritized safety first which was important to us. We took our small kids along with us and his crew
graciously helped swim/ snorkel with them while we took turns diving. He also packed lots of snacks for us to eat in between dives. You can tell he is a very experienced diver who really cares about the ecology of the area. He was also thoughtful about which dive locations would work the best for us.

While Sirenas is not the cheapest, we were very happy with the quality of the experience. We even had a bonus of seeing some cheeky monkeys on our shore interval. We would gladly dive with them again when in Costa Rica.

We had a great experience with Scott and the Sirenas team over the Christmas holidays!

Our group had a variety of experience levels from Open Water (~10 dives) to Dive Master. Scott and his team did a phenomenal job making sure that everyone felt safe, comfortable, and got the most out of their dive experience. Not to mention, they took us to some amazing secluded beaches during the surface intervals.

If you are going to Costa Rica and want to ensure you are diving with a professional who prioritizes safety, Scott is your guy. He is also incredibly quick to respond to emails, which makes planning easy.

First off, the staff is amazing, Scott is extremely personable and knowledgable, he ensures that we were all feeling safe and informed. Roy is more on the quiet side yet he came out of his shell by the end of the trip, and was lovely to dive with, he gave a very clear briefing before the dive and I appreciated that a lot. Cap'n Santos was very skilled, clean entry in and out of the boat from dives/snorkels and even found us a pod of dolphins. I was a bit of a nervous diver at first (hadn't dove in 6 odd years) but Scott and Roy assured me enough that by the end of it I felt quite confident under the water. My mother was an anxious snorkeler, almost ended up getting out of the water right away, but Scott literally swam with her, with his arm around her the entire time.
Honestly, the only down fall was the visibility. There was a red tide during our stay, and even though they said it was quite a clear day, I was a little unimpressed with the visibility in the Costa Rica waters. We hoped to see manta rays on this trip and we weren't so lucky. However we did see a sea turtle and a white tip reef shark, as well as a pod of dolphins while we were boating. We saw lots of eels, stingrays, starfish and various fish.
10/10 for Scott and the team, they are truly amazing, putting in so much effort to ensure that our experience was enjoyable. They even took us on a boat tour along the shore to finish off our dive.
7/10 for the diving/snorkelling experience, just based on the bad vis and few things we saw. BUT safety, experience, and everything else was perfect.

If you are looking for a private charter or small group dive, Sirenas is the absolute best. We spent incredible 2 days with Scott, Roy and Santos.

Our group had one open water certified diver, and one diver who was completing their open water certification. Scott was the best instructor I could have asked for - incredibly patient and understanding. I was anxious to start and he let me take everything at my own pace. His enthusiasm was contagious, he made the experience fun from start to finish. While I finished my certification, my partner was able to explore and enjoy “real” dives with Roy, who was able to point out tons of marine life and multiple shark sightings.

Captain Santos was always nearby when we would surface, he really is the best. In between dives there were plenty of snacks - pineapple, cookies, chips, and water in personalized reusable mugs. Captain Santos took us to 2 amazing beaches during our surface intervals, where we could hike, explore and snorkel! Felt like a bonus excursion in the middle of our dive day.

I cannot recommend Sirenas & Scott enough!

We only went snorkeling, but we got to experience so much. We all got to catch a fish, which was very exciting.Santos the captain was very efficient and helpful. Scott was amazing, bubbling with excitement and energy and knowledge. He embraces the Costa Rican lifestyle and cherishes the protection of the animals sealife and beach. He picks up garbage on land and ocean 💓 he offered to pick us up from our hotel because our hotel was close to his house and he drove us to the boat no charge. He was professional, no drinking alcohol before diving or snorkeling 🙏. We saw some amazing fish and sea urchins and dolphins, and devil rays jumping, Omgosh a poisonous yellow belly sea snake 🐍 Eeks a green turtle.
All equipment was clean and sized to fit. I highly recommend this tour. 👍

I dove with Bobbie Jo at the end of January. We got incredibly lucky with the weather and were able to do a day at the Bat Islands (which for that time of year is not typical). This honestly was one of the most incredible days diving I have ever experienced and will be tough to top - only one boat out there, 3 divers, diving with huge mantas, sharks, enormous schools of fish, rays jumping. Just wow.

We were able to get in 3 days of 3 tank dives - one day local, one at the Bats and one at Catalinas which was great for variety. I enjoyed the local dives as well.

Bobbie Jo keeps the groups small which is always a plus. One day when there were more of us, Roy came as well. Both are very knowledgeable, experienced, friendly, safe diver masters and we had a blast.

Dani and Jose are great captain and crew - professional, friendly, safe. Sirenas has a well run operation.

As always, you get what you pay for. Diving in Coco in general was more expensive than other places, but there are many factors going into that. And I am always willing to pay more for a smaller group and a more special experience.

Thank you for a wonderful trip! Cannot wait to return!

Absolutely an amazing experience! My two buddies finish there open water certifications with Sirenas Diving. They brought us to the perfect sites for beginners and learning. The execution of each dive felt very safe and efficient. Although I missed out on diving due to congestion, our boat crew owner Scott took me snorkeling nearby the site. Saw tons of awesome creatures in the nursery rocks. I wouldn’t recommend going with any other diving crew. I can’t wait for the next trip!

My husband and I went on a 3-dive trip in April 2021 from Coco Beach. We dove with Scott, who was just phenomenal. He's a very experienced diver and superb communicator. It had been a while since our last dives and Scott really helped get us prepped and informed. I can't say enough about his patience and genuine kindness. After the first 2 dives, I has having trouble with my ear clearing so I remained on the boat while my husband, who is much more experienced than I am, dove with Scott. Those boys had a fantastic time! Just goes to illustrate that Scott can adapt to beginner level or experienced with ease. We had an interval on a nice beach where we ate sandwiches and were entertained by a coati. The areas we dove included Monkeyhead and a boat wreck. This is a smaller operation but clearly the divers are skilled and helpful. We were very pleased with the equipment and sweet boat crew also. Thanks, Sirenas!

This was the best sunset cruise I’ve been on. First we headed out, drinks in hand, to a quiet snorkel spot. Then we finned up, jumped into the water, and followed our guide’s lead around several beaches. She pointed out all kinds of marine life I might’ve missed. After we got our fill, it was back into the boat for snacks as we watched the orb slowly dip through the horizon. The trip back was both energizing and sublime. Can’t recommend Bobbie Joe and her crew highly enough!

Had a wonderful time diving with Scott during our stay in Costa Rica. It's wonderful having the boat to ourselves, and Scott is a great guide with a lot of experience diving Papagayo. We really wanted to dive the Catalina Islands and almost didn't get to because of weather but Scott kept an eye on it and got us out there early enough to enjoy our dives. Did 3 tanks and saw a TON of wildlife, and loved the fresh pineapple, sandwiches, and cookies they brought along for us to snack on in between dives. Absolutely looking forward to diving with Sirenas again on our next trip to Costa Rica
