We even h We are the #1 ranked SCUBA, SNUBA and snorkel company in the Tamarindo/Flamingo area! We offer a variety of tours from PADI scuba courses to snorkeling. Please note, our sales office is no longer in Tamarindo. Currently, we only use the dive center in Flamingo during tour start and end times. What is SNUBA you might ask? SNUBA is a combination of scuba diving and snorkeling. We put an air tank in a free-floating inflatable raft. The SNUBA participants are then connected to the air tank with a 20 foot/6 meter hose. And that's it, essentially you are scuba diving on a leash. No heavy equipment, no previous experience and no time consuming scuba courses. Show up to the shop, listen to a 15 minute instructional briefing and you are ready to go! Minimum age is 4 years old.

Such an awesome experience. And Michael is great!! I had only snorkeled before and my boyfriend is actually Scuba certified. But both of us got the most out of Snuba and would say it was at the top of our list of best experiences ever!...More

First time snubaing with Mike and the crew was the highlight of my trip! I'd snorkeled before but this was better for staying down for longer to see all the fish and coral. At first I was nervous about breathing through a regulator, but Max...More

It was the first time snuba-ing for the majority of our group and the guys did a great job checking-in with us to make sure we were at ease and that all of our questions were answered. Couldn't be happier with our experience!
