Owner description: 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.

“Exceptional Scuba Diving and an awesome crew -- Rocket Frog Divers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

I had the pleasure of diving with Nere and the team at Rocket Frog Divers for some excellent diving around Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica.

This group is professional, experienced and FUN! The boat picks you up right on the beach in front our great hotel -- Bosque del Mar Hotel. They carry, clean and store your gear so it makes diving each day a breeze.

The boat is amazing and fast! Our dives were excellent with lots of wildlife and rock formations. Whales, Dolphins and Turtles on our surface intervals, how can you go wrong?

The trip to Batt Island with the bull sharks and manta rays makes me want to go back again and again!

I also sent down a group from Denver for a family reunion and rented out the boat for a family snorkel trip! Rave reviews came in from all ages!

This diver operator is a class act and I will definitely be back down for another adventure!

“OMG...Outstanding service, Magnificent diving , and Great Friendships”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

We have been to Ocatal and Playa Coco several times. On previous trips we went with other
outfits. But this year we decided to give Rocket Frog a try, and OMG it was the best decision
we could have possibly made. Nerre and Michael are outstanding. We completed 10 dives
with them, Aug 19 -24. Bat Islands, Catalinas, and local dives. We return to the area almost
every year and they have earned our loyalty for the great operation they run. More
importantly we look forward to a long friendship of diving together. They are a great couple and a lot of fun to be with. Thank You ...Thank You

As good as the other operations maybe, Rocket Frog is a step above, and the boats they use
are a great way to get to dive sights. Fast, comfortable and fun.

They are definitely our first choice of dive company's.

“Fantastic operation with top notch service. We were well taken care of from the beginning.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

Probably the best dive operation that I have used. They look after all your gear and even rinse, dry, pack and deliver it to your hotel afterwards. The boat is great, very fast and stable. Great snacks and bottled water.

Dive masters are great - they strike a balance between looking after everyone and letting you dive your own dive. During the surface intervall we motored over to where there was a whale siting and spent 90 min watching humpbacks.

If you dive in Playa Cocos/Ocotal/Hermosa - use Rocketfrog.

If you want to dive in Papagayo gulf, Murcielago Island or Catalina Island, in Costa Rica, this should be absolutely your choice.

“awesome diving, guides, and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

We dove 2 days including the bat islands. The marine life was awesome. We saw everything from sharks to eagle rays, lots of big eels and octopus. The guides were all very polite and extremely informative. The boats are top of the line. Full fresh pineapple and watermelons in between dives. the ride to the bat islands islands cut in half compared to other shops. Small family shop that is doing everything right. Small groups and no cattle herding How often can you pick the mind of a marine biologist major... no need to look anywhere else. These guys are the best.
