Great day of diving with Shelly, Colum and Karen. I dove and my wife snorkelled. We saw reef sharks, huge schools of fish and a massive southern sting ray that was about 6ft across. A small group with great attention to detail by the Rich Coast staff.

I did the Advanced Open Water course and went to Catalinas with them and have no regrets. They have a great operation going on and the instructors are great. I would do more courses and go diving with them again with no hesitation.

We have been going in an out of the shop for several months while the kids were going to a marine oceanography class. Our son took the discover diving class and loved it enough to get his basic open water certification. He just signed up to start his advanced certification. The folks at the shop are always friendly and helpful. Most important they strive to make sure you are up to the standards they expect. Thanks to Brenda, Shelly and Sam for a great experience.

After I finished my Open Water certification here last year, I dove in several other locations. But when it became serious and I had to choose where to go to obtain my Rescue Diver Certificate, I knew from the start this is where I wanted to go. The team gave me all the explanations, the theoretical courses, the Emergency Rescue courses, and the Rescue Diver courses are given by passionate people. While they expect the best from all students, they're ready to support you while learning and take the time to correct and answer all questions. I already know that, when I do my Divemaster course, where I'll go. Thanks a lot, all at Rich Coast Diving!

They provide excellent customer service and attention for safety. Everything is done for you including cleaning your equipment after the dive. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Picked me up at my hotel in Playa Hermosa for a nominal fee. I would use this dive company again.
