ScubaCaribe in Guanacaste in Costa Rica is a PADI 5 Star Dive Center and Water Sports Center which is located on the beautiful an wild looking beach of Riu Hotel, between Hotel Riu Palace and the Hotel Riu Guanacaste. Our dive center provides all of its services for guest staying in both of the hotels.

We offer daily scuba diving trips to the most interesting dive sites in the Papagayo Gulf including unbelievable beautiful Catalina Island and all the spots around the Pelona Islands. All of the dive sites are reachable within a quick 10 minutes boat ride leaving directly from the hotel beach.

All the dive spots in this area are incredibly rich in marine life, making Costa Rica dive paradise, especially in the Pacific region where we are located. The blue waters of Guanacaste coast are supplied with a lot of plankton what is the reason of visibility which may be not as good as in the Caribbean waters. On the other hand plankton makes this region a perfect feeding station for animals whose nutrition is based on plankton’s filtration like giant manta rays and whale sharks.

Everyone can enjoy different sport activities using our new and well maintained equipment. Apart from diving, ScubaCaribe has in the offer unforgettable SNUBA® experience (surface-supplied diving with a long hose supplying air to the person underwater), snorkeling excursions, sunset tours, Jet Ski rentals or Jet Ski tours, Taxi boat to Playas del Coco, and lots of water sport equipment like stand up paddle, kayaks, paddle boat and others.

We are located 15 minutes away by Taxi boat from Playas del Coco, a local village full of craft shops, restaurants and local markets.

Please note that divers who haven’t dived for a long time may be asked to do a Refresh Course.

Prices shown in US Dollars (USD).

PADI Bubblemaker

Bubblemaker offers an easy and enjoyable introduction to the magic of underwater breathing.

It makes a perfect transition step for children from age of 8 years.

This course gets them below the surface and blowing bubbles! Students learn how to swim with fins, use a mask, and take their first breaths underwater.

Once the class starts “blowing bubbles” with ease, the instructor will carefully lead them through cool tricks to keep their excitement and interest up.

INCLUDED: 1 dive at max. depth of 2m, full equipment

USD99.00

PADI Discover Scuba Diver

Have you always wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to try scuba diving, but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is for you!

A PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience is a great way to find out what scuba diving is really like before you take the full scuba certification course. With one of our PADI Instructors you will enter the shallow end of the pool with all the equipment that divers use to dive in the sea and you will learn the basic safety guidelines and skills needed to dive. After a pool session you will be diving in the open waters under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.

While not a scuba certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

Whole experience lasts around 2 hours

INCLUDED: 1 pool session, 1 boat dive in open waters, dive theory, full equipment, PADI materials

NOT INCLUDED: certification

USD429.00

PADI Open Water Certification

PADI's Open Water Certification unlocks an entire new world of exotic ocean adventures. Students from the Discover SCUBA Diving class will already have some of the skills for this course. Anyone in good health over the 10 years of age is eligible.

Advanced PADI certified instructors lead students through guides and videos explaining terms and concepts about the technical aspects of ocean diving. Following class room instruction, the students put the theory into practice with relevant pool dives. Skills build on each other. Eventually students learn about going as far as 130 feet under the surface, pre-dive safety practices, equipment check outs, and how to handle most diving challenges.

Students move through at least five pool dives and four local dives on their way to passing the certification test. The instructors role is to get students safely through the lessons until they are confident enough for exciting open ocean diving. Though fun and focused on making students comfortable underwater, this is a serious course that conveys and verifies defined skills on those that pass. Not everyone attains the level of competence required for safe open water diving. For this reason, gaining the PADI Open Water Certification is a cause for pride.

A big part of SCUBA revolves around equipment. Students learn about selecting masks, snorkels, fins, dive computers, dive gauges, wet suits, buoyancy vests, tanks, regulators and weight belts. The dive shop can rent all of the necessary gear. Instructors can also assist students with buying gear that improves their diving enjoyment and safety.

Class length varies by season and size. It can take as little as 2 intense days, or as long as 8 weeks depending on how many hours per day students can devote, along with access to suitable dive sites.

Gaining experience as an Open Water Certified diver often leads to a desire for more skills. Becoming an Advanced Open Water diver gives more knowledge and skills for enjoying SCUBA in a wider variety of more challenging conditions.

INCLUDED: 5 pool sessions, 4 boat dives in open waters, dive theory, full equipment, PADI materials, certification

USD325.00

PADI - Advanced Open Water Certification

If PADI Open Water certification is like a standard driving license, then the Advanced Open Water (AOW) certification is sort of an off-road license. At a minimum, students gain underwater navigation skills, learn about deep water conditions, get introduced to more advanced dive computers and functions, plus learn several specialty skills of their choosing.

Anyone who completes the Open Water certification (or equivalent from another organization) and is at least 15 years old, can sign up. Expect 5 dives with underwater navigation, deeper activities from 18-30 meters / 60-100 feet, plus 3 specialty introduction dives.

Despite the name, divers just out of the Open Water course enter the Advanced program routinely because it gives them more skills while earning hours for their log book.

There are both home study and in class books explaining theory, safety issues, and new skill exercises.

Students with the Advanced Open Water certification gain confidence in their ability to navigate underwater, safely dive a wider variety of conditions, and go places they would have been hesitant to with only Open Water skills.

A great course for taking the diving excitement even farther..sign up today!
