February 18 and 20, 2014 my husband and I had the pleasure of diving with Aquacenter Diving at Playa Flamingo, Costa Rica. We got certified over 30 years ago in Wisconsin and have taken many dives all over the world. We booked our dives on line and called Ana Isabel Vieira V. All of our questions were answered very promptly. We visited the shop and filled out the paperwork Sunday before diving. We were given rides to and from our condo both days. The staff was very friendly and informative. The attention to detail was the best we have ever experienced. The Divemasters made certain we had all our gear, transported the gear to and from the boat and set up the gear on the boat. The deck hand, Steven, had his eyes everywhere as he anticipated everyone's needs. The boat is a large and very comfortable dive boat. The dive sites are at the Catalina Islands 20 minutes away. I have a 5 mil full wetsuit. I was given a 3 mil shortie to wear over my wetsuit. The Divemasters took time to make certain every diver had the proper gear necessary for comfort. I wore a hood type hat, gloves and dive socks. This was a different dive experience due to the colder water and poorer visibility. Aurelien was our Divemaster and I wish we could dive with him on all of our future dives. He is an excellent Divemaster. Risky and a Divemaster in training, Dan, were on board and excellent as well. We saw a lot of sea life and Aurelien discovered many creatures to show us. We appreciated the drinks and snacks between dives. Another example of providing for our comfort. When we return to Costa Rica, we will look forward to diving with them again.
