The Diving  

One thing we can count on in our mercurial Pacific is excitement. We dive it every day and are always looking forward to the adventures and surprises it may bring. Even from one dive to the next the conditions can vary greatly, so we always brief our divers on the potential of challenging conditions, which invariably make for a fun and memorable experience. Sharks, morays, lobsters, sting rays, crabs, and schools of colorful fish are all creatures we see on a daily basis, and in addition we have two distinct seasons for very special visitors: the oceanic manta ray (January-April) and the humpback whales (August-September).

We like keeping our dive groups small, so we go out on boats with no more than five or six people plus two PADI dive professionals. That way we get to take our time with each of our divers, make sure that everyone has the attention they need, plus have more interaction and flexibility underwater, showing each other whatever catches our eyes or spending more time in one spot if we feel like it.

Our dive sites are GPS-market spots that only Iguana Divers dive, and every day we appreciate how special it is that we are the ones who have found and explored these particular specks in the immensity of the ocean. The marine ecosystem in Costa Rica’s Pacific is volcanic, with sandy or rubbly bottom and occasional rock formations which attract a great variety of species ranging from minuscule to gigantic. We are fascinated by every one of them and constantly add to a photograph inventory of the biodiversity in our area, which is located between Cabuya, Santa Teresa and the surroundings of Cabo Blanco nature reserve. 

Our daily dive outings for certified divers are approximately 4 hours long and include two dives, any gear you might need and a simple snack on the boat for $120 per person.

Our divers are nature-loving adventurers and friends of the wondrous ocean we love to explore!
