Honestly an amazing company. From the moment I stepped on the office, I was fully taken care of! They get you all set up, offer coffee and another refresher, banana bread, water, etc. The staff makes you feel like family and is very knowledgeable! They will point out dolphins and whales on your way out to Caño, so it’s an added experience for the trip! They offer fruit after the first snorkel and a delicious burrito after the second snorkel trip. Beautiful water, able to free dive, and very safe. Very happy I opted for this excursion!Allison ElamMay 17, 2022

Just finished diving - had such a great day! Very professional team, nice equipment. The dive sites were nice too at El Cano and we saw all kinds of animals - turtles, reef sharks, eels, rays… list goes in and on! Would definitely recommend this company 👌Brittany ThompsonMay 3, 2022
J'ai fait deux expériences avec eux. Le surf et l'expérience snorkling à Cano Island. Pour le surf, petit groupe. nous sommes allés dans l'océan et notre guide nous aidait à avoir le bon timming pour prendre la vague. Jeffrey a beaucoup d'expérience et il était excellent. Nous avons pris plusieurs vagues. L'excursion à Cano Island était très sécuritaire. Beaucoup de poissons, des tortues. Bon repas et j'ai aussi beaucoup aimé la petite attention café, thé glacé, pain aux bananes avant l'excursion. Je vous le recommande fortementAudrey “Drey” LoApril 27, 2022
Our family enjoyed the snorkeling tour very much! The staff was very accommodating and friendly. They go above and beyond with little details like having personalized coffee cups before the tour and personalized gear bags on the boat. We had a 6 and 9 yr old with us, first timer snorkelers. The area of where guides take you is contained with small ocean currents. My average ability swimmer kids did just fine. Very well organized operation!Jessica DeStefanoApril 24, 2022

Incredible staff, and company - we are so glad we picked Costa Rica dive and surf and is the only dive shop we will go to on our next vacation. Fi, Audrey, Mauricio, Dana and the whole crew made this the absolute best diving experience from start to finish. Thank you!!!!Kristen HealdApril 14, 2022
I had a great and professional diving experience and even was lucky that the UW photographer Firmiano was with us to make nice pictures. Also the catering and service on the boat we’re really delicious - many thanks to the whole crew of CR D&S 👍🏻😃Thomas LisyApril 9, 2022
Fantastic diving with a wonderful diveshop. I did 2 dives at Caño Island. The day was great from start to finish. When you arrive in the morning, they have delicious banana bread, bananas, and ginger lemonade to share. You get fitted and quickly depart for the boats to the island. Along the way to the island, we did some whale watching! We saw a calf and its mother, both of which did full breaches out of the water. It was an incredible start to the day. The dives themselves were great. We saw white tip reef sharks, many schools of fish, sea turtles, seahorses, stringrays, harlequin shrimp, among others. In between the dives you're provided fruit, and after both dives you're given a burrito for lunch. They were all tasty. Shoutout to the crew, divemasters, and photographer! High quality service, and would definitely come back again.Jason QinApril 7, 2022
