My wife and I went scuba diving for our first time while vacationing in Costa Rica. We were both nervous about diving but our instructor James Horton knew exactly what to do to put our minds at ease. We highly recommend using James as your instructor if possible. He made us confident in our dive and it was very clear... More

My family and I were on our first vacation to Costa Rica. My son and I are divers and wanted to do 2 days of diving. I set up our dives via email with Capt. Bob and Oceans Unlimited. I knew that the odds were not in our favor for good dive conditions because of the time of year and... More

This is our first trip to Costa Rica. I decided to get my whole family of four certified through the Padi 3 Day Open Water Course. Due to the busy schedule prior to the trip, I had not had a lot of time to do a lot of research into excursions. Our hotel is the JW Marriot, Guanacaste. From the... More

My husband and I got our PADI certification through Oceans Unlimited and our first times doing open water dives with JT and Captain Bob were great! The shop responded to all of our questions before we arrived, were super prompt and once we got there our dives were organized and seamless, and made sure to get us sorted before we... More

I recently got certified here. The visibility was not great on the first day we dove (it had just rained) but Tyler, who was the one who certified me was a total sweetheart. Very responsible and knowledgeable. I'd say Oceans Unlimited seemed like a little bit of a boys club - which I wasn't thrilled about - but it seems... More

My wife and I have both recently passed our open water courses and decided to try this dive centre as it was the only one close enough to our hotel on our visit to Costa Rica. Finding the shop can be tricky and we had to ask a security guard at the marina. In the shop the staff seemed more... More

Some of the best rental gear I've experienced. We had a group of 4 advanced divers and two additional divers getting certified. They sent a separate instructor for the newbies so as not to hold us back. Captain Bob went above and beyond to fix my friend's dive computer. Boat with on board shower, never seen that before. Great experience... More

My wife and I stayed in Costa Rica for 2 months from March and April. I dove with Oceans Unlimited so often (almost every weekend) I felt like a member of the family there. The staff was excellent - Melissa was my first guide, who was very professional and friendly. I decided to get my Advanced Open Water certification and... More

My husband and I went to Manuel Antonio in November of 2015 for an Open Water Referral Program with Oceans Unlimited to complete our certification. This is a very professional and well run operation. I spoke with TJ on the phone several times during the planning phase before we came to Costa Rica, and he was always helpful. When we... More
