My boyfriend and I dove with BA divers in January 2024 while visiting Playa Hermosa. We had been PADI certified in March of 2023 and this was our first open water dive since becoming certified.
I was a little nervous to dive and my boyfriend wanted to be able to dive without having to worry about me, so we stopped by the dive shop to meet the staff and were greeted by very welcoming staff and met their dive master Fabian. He instantly put our minds at ease and promised that we would have a great experience at our comfort level.
The day of our dive, Fabian and the boat captain picked us up on the beach adjacent to our resort. We then picked up another couple at a resort across the bay.
Fabian did an amazing job of filling us in on the dive plan and what to expect including creatures we might encounter and how to manage our encounters with the creatures. During the dive Fabian was engaged with the divers and always within close proximity so that we felt safe and didn’t miss anything.
During our dive interval Fabian and our boat captain showed us some sights around the bay and provided fresh pineapple and some good conversation.
Our experience was top notch! I can’t thank them enough.

The most amazing dive of our lives! We saw turtles, rays, and sharks, not to mention the beautiful schools of fish. Even the dive master said it was one of the best dives he's ever been on. Miguel was our dive master, along with Captain Jimmy, and they both treated us so well. This is our second time going through B.A. Divers and both times it's been just our group, so it was basically a private outing. I highly recommend! These are our go-to guys in CR.

Brian was a great dive master. He was very professional and did a great job with the dive plans. The visibility was not the best but he did the best he could to give us a great experience. We ended up seeing 4 white tip reef sharks!
The boat captain was awesome and very responsive when we surfaced. Would definitely dive with them again.

Our family hd a great experience diving. Brian was our dive master. He was incredibly knowledgeable, patient and helpful. We did an intro dive followed by 2 more dives and on our 2nd day did 2 more at Catalina Island. We were a family of 5 and we all were very happy with our experience!

Completed a discovery dive with B.A Divers and would highly recommend them. They provided great training with safety in mind and took me to really cool spots with plenty of marine life. Thank you B.A Divers!

The whole team was kind and helpful with our large teen group. Mau was wonderful and our main snorkel guide and was an amazing guide in the water. His excitement about the ocean is contagious!

When we were in Costa Rica, our hotel booked us for our diving with BA Divers, and it could not have been a better experience! Since our hotel was on the beach, the boat actually picked us up right on the beach both mornings that we dove. It was so convenient!! The first day that we went out, it was just the two of us on the boat so we had the divemaster's full attention. Our divemaster that day was Mow (rhymes with "now"), and he was the best! He was clearly so passionate about his work, and so friendly and helpful. On my first dive I was having trouble descending and had to pop back up twice, and Mow was so patient with me and helped me calm my breathing down so that the third time was a charm. Once we got down to the bottom, Mow stayed with us the entire time and pointed several things out we would have missed without him, including my first-ever octopus!! We dove with BA again a few days later and had another divemaster, Elias, who was also very helpful and attentive. He even brought his GoPro out for the second dive, and send us underwater videos via WhatsApp several days later, which we are so grateful for. He also found and pointed out to us several things we would have missed. All four dive spots we hit over the two days were fantastic. We saw 6(!) octopuses total, countless eels and rays, and sooooo many fish. And we felt very safe and well cared for throughout. Highly recommend BA Divers!

My first dive in Costa Rica was booked through my travel agency. Brian and Fabian met me on the beach and immediately made me feel comfortable. They took me to two great sites and the experience was incredible. Snacks and drinks were provided. Brian was knowledgeable of the dive site found creatures I would have never discovered on my own. He saw a bunch of lobsters, eels, puffer fish and tons of schools of fish. Highly highly recommend BA Diving.
