Couldn’t have asked for a better day out diving! Very thorough briefing and instructions which made us feel safe and comfortable in the water. Perfect amount of time spent diving, we really got to explore the reef and take in our surroundings! Thank you Lucas, Mariano and Gabi!!!

Had a great time. Everyone of these guys went out of their way to give you a great dive experience. Lucas was our dive master on all four of my dives. Got to check of one of my bucket list items (White Tip Sharks). Appreciate you guys and truly enjoyed it all. Kudos to Be Water Diving. Hope to see you again. Pura Vida

I cannot say enough good things about this dive company. I dove three days with them - the guides (Fernando and Lucas) were awesome, and did a great job showing us stuff underwater. They run small boats so it doesn’t feel like too many people to a guide. Despite visibility not being the best (related to the time of year), it felt very safe since the guides were always nearby and had their attention of us. Only (minor) negative that I would note is that it the boat is on the smaller side with not much space to move around. But it is well-equipped for diving, and that’s what’s important!Additionally, I had a group of four that did a discover dive with them. Everyone that participated said it was a great experience - Lucas and Fernando were patient, they felt very safe and would do it again! Highly recommend giving them a shot if you’re looking for a dive company in the area.

I am happy to have chosen to dive with Be Water Diving. When searching for a local operator, with a small outfit and great reviews this dive shop showed up. We always plan out vacations around diving and we prefer the local small shops vs the PADI shops that have all this amazing expensive equipment and fast boats but we prefer the friendly interaction, the local vibe and dive culture. This shop fell nothing short of that.Willy and Nico were super friendly. Fernando and Lucas were wonderful guides. From start to finish these guys made us feel right at home and made sure we got the best experience we could have.We went 2 separate days. One was after a week of wind and visibility was maybe 5ft but we saw dolphins on the way out. The other set of dives were made after a few days without wind and visibility was substantially better and we saw a bunch of things!Highly recommended!

An amazing spot for our first ocean dives! We did our 4 open water dives to finish our scuba certification and it was the perfect combination of learning and exploring!! The instructors we dove with—Fernando, Lucas and Nico—were knowledgeable and made it such an enjoyable experience! We saw sharks, a barracuda, eels, colorful fish, starfish and many other sea creatures. The boat staff were incredibly helpful and the entire experience was one to remember!!

This is a great dive shop. We went out with Fernando and Adriana. While Diving we got to hear whales in the water. We didn’t see them because they were far but it was totally cool to hear them in the water. The crew was really nice and safe. There was tons of marine life. The visibility is not great in these parts, so know that. The dive Shop is small but highly recommended!!

Amazing experience!!!! Communication was incredible. Friendly staff who went out of their way for me and my daughter on short notice. Mariano was patient and very skilled! We had a blast and saw so many beautiful creatures to include giant eels, octopus, and white tip shark along with their baby. Incredible day and in between dives we were welcomed with fresh pineapple and a sweet along with water and tea. Highly recommend this place for all your water adventure needs!!!
