A tour for certified divers looking to explore one of the best diving regions in Guanacaste! Embark on our Catalina Island Costa Rica Scuba Diving trip to see some truly incredible marine life in one of best places in the country for diving and snorkeling. Our half day diving tour fits you with scuba equipment and transports you via boat to the Catalina Island for two separate dives! This is a not to be missed opportunity for any dive enthusiast.
Your day begins in Tamarindo where you will meet your guide at their diving center to be equipped with the right wetsuit and diving equipment. Once you are all fitted out, it will be time to head to the boat where you can enjoy a leisurely 45 minute boat ride to your first diving stop at the famous and protected refuge of “Islas Catalinas” or Catalina Islands. Once all prepped, your guides will give you a briefing before plunging into the water. This incredible archipelago is attracts an array of marine life from far and wide, offering some of the best diving in this part of the country. On any given day, you may be able to see turtles, eagle rays, eels, white tip reef sharks, and an abundance of fish species. If you’re lucky you, may be able to see giant whale sharks glide through the water or perhaps if the season is right, the majestic oceanic manta rays! Swim with your expert guides as they show you some of the best spots to observe marine life in their natural habitat.
With the first dive complete, your group will come back aboard where some complimentary fruit, snacks and soft drinks will be waiting for you. Discuss with some of the other divers the amazing things you saw in the archipelago as the boat captain transports you to the second dive spot. Join your group as you plunge into the waters to come face to face with even more incredible ocean dwelling animals and spectacular ocean topography. When sea conditions are right, you can enjoy a clear view of all the wonders and secrets both below and above the water. As you rejoin your boat for the ride back, you may be fortunate enough to see dolphins, turtles, and occasionally even migratory whales!
With your dives complete, you will return to shore around midday where you activity will conclude.
