Come dive with us the Catalinas Islands!

- Diving changes lives. No one comes from a scuba dive the same. For many people, the change is dramatic, adding a new dimension and sometimes new direction to their lives. For others, the change is subtle, but diving still becomes part of their lives, and they look at the world differently. -

Islas Catalinas Flamingo Tamarindo

Las Catalinas

Scuba diving in the Pacific is a unique experience!


With about 6% of the whole world's biodiversity, Costa Rica offers to its visitors incomparable wildlife and breathtaking sceneries. And most part of this varied biodiversity can be found underwater!

The Catalinas Islands are one of the best diving spots in Costa Rica. The archipielago formed by 7 islands offers over 13 diving spots, ideal for seasoned divers and beginners alike. They house an immense variety of marine life, from white tipped reef sharks, huge pacific manta rays, a wide diversity of rays, seaturtles to nudibranchs and harlequin shrimps. Not only that, you can also spot immense schools of grunts, the Pacific blue fin tuna, jacks as big as a you, snappers, scorpion fish (be careful with those!), eels, octopie and much more. The variety is mind blowing!

Don`t forget to keep your eyes open during the trip to the islands, you could spot playful dolphins, jumping devil rays, seaturtles or even the extraordinary humpback whales.

The marina

We start at Flamingo marina for a 40 minutes boat ride to the islands. The dive spot is chosen based on the conditions for the day, we dive in small groups and with experienced PADI certified instructors. Thereby we can assure you will have the best experience while adventuring the Catalinas Islands, taking your safety and enjoyment as our priority.
