My wife and I went for a 2 dive trip to Cano Island with Costa Rica Dive and Surf. What a professional tour company. The staff is incredibly friendly and they really know how to take care of you. Our dive guide Ian was so knowledgeable on the species of the area and we had 2 great dives with lots of sealife. I would definitely recommend them to dive or snorkle with.Jim KuchesMarch 24, 2023
The dive shop was very easy to communicate with. They provided great service when we got to the shop in the morning. They had drinks and banana bread. Everyone was very friendly. The diving was cloudier than I was expecting since we were 30 miles away from shore, but that isn't the shops fault. The ride to Cano Island is very bumpy! Take dramamine. I left a bunch of stuff at the shop by mistake and they got it back to me the next day even though my resort was 1.5 hours away by car. Great service!Peter MartensenMarch 11, 2023
Great dive shop. They take snorkelers and divers on the same boat so our family could spend the day together. The staff is amazing and they provided a really good lunch while out at Cano Island. Highly recommend!Tina GarberFebruary 26, 2023
Had an amazing half day on the north side of a biological reserve. Staff were the greatest, which made the experience even better. They were nolageble and shared their knowledge and passion for the ecosystem we were lucky enough to experience and explore. Erika specifically was a great.Michael LuetheFebruary 22, 2023
(Translated by Google) Super dive center on Uvita, an ultra welcoming staff, very professional support (safety, information on underwater fauna), This one was incredible (green turtles, olives, white tip shark, rays...) we even had the chance to observe whales and dolphins on our way to Isla Caño (dive site). We recommend both for snorkeling and for scuba diving!

Nous recommandons tant pour le snorkeling que pour la plongée bouteilles!Benjamin ROUSSEYFebruary 19, 2023
Costa Rica Dive Anne Surf put on an amazing Dive! I’m a DiveMaster and Deckhand myself and I gotta say these people know what they are doing. The gear is top level and how they get you ready is effortless and efficient. I loved it so much I went back for round two. I had Lucy the first day and Juan the second, both were fantastic divers and hilarious on land. Now let’s get to the diving. Cano diving is next level!!!!! The amount of wildlife you see will blow your mind!!! From sharks to fish to turtles there’s nothing here you won’t love.Dominic GalentiFebruary 13, 2023
CRDS run such a great operation! Super friendly team that are very organized and serve a delicious breakfast and lunch. Our guide, Ian, and his team were super cool and knowledgeable about all the marine life around isle de Caño. We were treated to seahorses, hawksbill turtles, white tip reef sharks, and a majestic manta ray! Special shout out to our photographer, Firmiano, who went above and beyond to get some pretty sweet shots of us underwater. If you’re in the Uvita area, don’t miss out on CRDS!!Sara VanderkadenFebruary 11, 2023
The best diving experience of my life!! The operation was incredible super organized and efficient the food was great, the dive masters where excellent following along. But the BEST part was the photographer we got to hire in the dive shop Firmiano, truly the best diving pictures ever, we had the opportunity to see the oceanic gigant mantas and the pictures he got of me are insane, totally recommend and worth every penny. A master at his craft.Anumi Sassaroli OrianaFebruary 10, 2023
This was by far the best surf lesson I had in Costa Rica. Jeffrey was a very attentive teacher and helped me correct all the mistakes he could observe. He pushed me to my limits and I always felt he was caring truly that I could have the best surf lesson ever. Thank you again Jeffrey. Pura VidaMarco MancinettiJanuary 27, 2023
