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 17 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 17 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.

I spent two days diving with Dive Master Rocky and Bobbie Jo. The first was by myself and the second with a friend, who is also an experienced diver, and my husband. Both days were really fun and we saw a small shark, rays, eels, harlequin clown shrimp, frog fish, huge schools of fish, and much more. Bobbie Jo taught... More

Bobbie is the wo-MAN! She rocks! She took a group of us to some awesome spots off of playa del coco and bat island. Her boating partners are super nice and Bobbie always came prepared with water, pineapple, and cookies! I'd definitely recommend Siernas to my friends and family

Great attention and advice on dives. It is great for smaller groups who are seeking an upgraded diving experience. The dive guides are top notch and know the area completely. The best way to see the deeper parts of the area.
