We took the 3-day trip to Coiba Island with 2 nights boarding and 3 dives per day and saw dolphins, tens of white-tipped reef sharks, stingrays, turtles, magnificent shoals of jack fish, lots of moray eels outside of their crevices ....... (can't name the rest, but there was a lot, lot more!). The nature was just magnificent and what made it more special was that there were so few divers - no more than 6 in our group, including our wonderful divemaster Elly. No other boats with divers to be seen! Under the water, there was life in every nook and cranny. Between dives we rested on lovely little uninhabited islands.

Elly had so many dive sites for us that we didn't visit any of the twice, and I'm sure she has many, many up her sleeve - if the current was too strong or the visibility too poor, no problem she just took us somewhere else.

The stay on Coiba Island was comfortable and the food great - cooked by none other that Herbie's wife.

All-in-all a magnificent, relaxing and peaceful diving experience, so much the better because this protected marine reserve can flourish in its diversity.

Thanks Herbie and the team at Scuba Coiba!

Thank John P

I choice Scuba Coiba because of Tabea (who works there). She was sitting outside and was very pleasant to talk to and very enthusiastic. She directly made me feel good about diving with them.

For there it only got even better. We had a great day with Elwynn as our dive instructor. She too was so enthusiastic, experienced and she gave me a very safe feeling. Diving with them was the best. I did 3 dives and on the first dive we saw dolphins haunting!
Elwynn filmed it so we have a great memory! Both Tabea as Elwynn took many pictures.

It was a great day. They provide a very nice lunch and show you some of the best dive spots.

Diving at Coiba is amazing!!! The environment both above and under water is great!

We have been diving with Scuba Coiba for 2 days. Very Nice company. Both Ben and Elli were professional and good fun!
As i am a unexperienced diver (OW) they made sure I was comfortable under water.

Booked the trip way in advance. Communication is good and clear
Accomodation at Coiba is simple and nice. Food was great!
