Join us daily for 2 tank local diving and explore the Pacific. The Gulf of Papagayo offers some of the Pacific Ocean most interesting marine diversity. The plankton-rich waters support numerous species from big to small. On any given day you may see big schools of fish, small nudibranchs, spotted eagle rays, sting rays, white tip or nurse sharks or you might have a lucky encounter with the giant manta rays, Big Turtles, or a passing whale shark. Dolphins are also a common site during the boat ride. This makes local diving very interesting
Every day our boats leave for a 1, 2 or 3 tank dive to our local dive sites. We offer over 20 different sites, so if you do multiple days of diving we will develop personal itinaries to meet your requests. Our favorite dive site is Tortuga, where we have 2 little wrecks and usually many sharks, but one can also find seahorses, clown shirmp, nudibranchs, Moray eels and big schools of fish.
Our dives are suited for beginners as well as advanced divers. All our trips are lead by PADI Instructors and max 4 divers per guide. On the boat we serve snacks, fruit and drinks. Boats leave at 8 am and return around mid day.If you are doing the 3 tank dives lunch will be provided and return time is estimated around 2 pm.
The Pacific is unpredictable with visibility and temperature. Depending on the time of the year we can have warm waters to 28C/82F but it can cool down a lot if the wind picks up. Visibility ranges for 30 m/100ft to 5m/15ft but when the visibility is low the water is very nutritious with plankton and we will encounter many different types of rays and hopefully Whales or a whale shark. The reefs are volcanic rock so don’t expect beautiful corals but we are sure the abundance of colorful fish will make up for it and you will have an awesome dive.
