Scuba Dive With The Best In Costa Rica!!!

Rocket Frog Divers utilizes 3 purpose built dive boats. The Pacific Express is unlike any other in the area. It features two 250HP V6 Yamaha 4 Stroke engines that allow us to visit our dive sites in a fraction of the time that it takes other dive companies. This proves especially worthwhile when you consider that some of the more popular dive sites in the region, the Bat Islands (Isle Murcileago) and the Catalinas Islands are several hour trips with other operators. The Pacific Express can make the voyage to the Catalinas in less than half an hour.

The “Tiburon” or the shark is another purpose built dive shop build for small groups. This dive vessel is perfect for exploring local dive sites in the Gulf de Papagayo with a very small group.

The Devil Ray is a catamaran style dive vessel which we acquired in 2015. It is a catamaran style vessel which offers a lot of room and comfort for our divers and also offers an upper level sun deck for surface intervals and for the voyage to and from the dive sites.

Another point that separates us from most dive shops in Costa Rica is that you will have a member of our senior staff diving on the boat with you every day. This ensures that you are getting the best possible service possible. Our owners care about the experience their customers have and will work their hardest to ensure you have the best possible service on your dive trip.

My husband and I decided to go SCUBA diving on our recent trip to Costa Rica even though we haven't been in years. Rocket Frog Divers was recommended to us by our concierge and we weren't disappointed. Their office is located in Playa Ocotal. Even though it's like riding a bike, our dive master was very thorough in reviewing procedures... More

We completed four dives with Rocket Frogs Divers I have been diving for 40 years and have never seen so many eels and octopus is such a short time. Diving conditions were as expected for Pacific Ocean. Dive boat was functional. The staff at Rocket Frog Divers were exceptional. They picked us up both days on time. They were helpful,... More

Just returned from a family vacation to Guanacaste and can't speak highly enough about this operation. Our son is 11 and was just certified last year, which limited the depth he could go, but the owner Mike accommodated us with our own private two tank trip, with him as the guide. Amazing wildlife (sharks, turtles, rays, eels, etc.) and visibility... More

This is the best run SCUBA diving outfit I have encountered in my 33 years of diving. Mike and Nere the owners were incredibly gracious and have a very well trained staff that are happy, helpful and incredibly professional. I planned this trip roughly 6 months out. There were roughly 4 other operations in the area I could have picked... More

I've dived a few places and this was one of my favourites, probably because it was my first time seeing a turtle whilst diving. Saw black and white giant manta rays 3-4 meters in wing span, Dolphins jumping along the boat to get to the Bat islands. Amazing and the weather was perfect. A little current underwater so bring good... More

My wife and two teenage sons took a dive trip with the Rocket Frog crew this morning. The entire staff was friendly and professional and a great time was had by all. We would definitely book another trip in the future
