Bull shark dive

Bull shark diving at Bat Island is a very exciting and Adrenalin loaded experience. It's a deep dive to see the sharks and therefore only for advanced certified divers that are trained to dive to 30meters/100 feet. The second dive is on the way back to Playa del Coco and shallower but nevertheless as exciting, as there are chances to see mantas. Experience these amazing creatures yourself and let us take care of everything else.

Although the visibility wasn't great, we had a great time snorkeling. Franko and Gwen were super friendly, funny, and nice! They picked us up at our Airbnb in Tamarindo (free of charge) and dropped us off at the end of the tour. The equipment was in great conditions and they made sure we were safe at all times.

We had an excellent day with Franco and Gwen and had our own private tour! They did an excellent job balancing safety and fun and helped us to experience diving in Costa Rica like no one else could! We saw a myriad of fish and sharks but the highlight was a 15 foot wide manta ray that we will never forget! Thank you Franco, thank you Gwenda!

My daughter and I finished our open water PADI certification with Franco at TamaDive. Truly first class; kind, supportive, great teacher, fantastic new equipment, and overall amazing experience. Great dive at Catalina Island. Saw tons of fish, several sharks and a huge manta ray. Such a memorable experience. Highly highly recommended

An early start reaped rewards diving off the Catalina islands. Franco and his DM Gwen make you feel safe , confident and all with a great sense of humour. I paid for a two tank dove at Catalina islands, the boat and dive equipment were all top notch. I was very lucky seeing 3 giant manta and a host of sharks , moray eel and octopus. The manta’s were spectacular a real dream come true. Franco’s GoPro captured the moments as you will see!! As above so below the professional eye to detail ensured we were all clear in the dive plan and felt safe at.
