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.

My wife and I dove with Bobbie Jo one day on our vacation and we couldn't have asked for a better time. She and her crew were laid back but very knowledgeable, experienced, and keen on safety. Being fairly inexperienced they made us feel comfortable and safe while diving in some great spots with lots to see. Provided water, snacks,... More

Having dived on and off since 1985, I was impressed with the care and attention Bobbie Jo and her crew devoted to our three two tank dives around the Papagayo Peninsula. They managed all the details of setting up our gear, cleaning our masks, etc. leaving us with every moment to enjoying our aquatic wildlife which changed with each dive.... More
