We went for diving with a group of friends, two licenced divers and three for Discover Scuba Diving. There were also some other people for scuba diving. The boat that we travelled to the Catalina Island was overloaded, there were no place to sit for everyone so some of us had to find a place on the floor. The diving equipement was already fixed so we didn’t have a chance to check the mixture of gases. The diving conditions were difficult - waves, poor visibility. The divemaster changed the depth for a few times, from lower to deeper, than again up and down, which is not professional. The three guys that dived for the first time had only one instructor to help them and control them, which was very dangerous, especially in harsh conditions. The way back by boat was a nightmar. The boat was shaking on waves, flooded by water. And we had no life jackets to protect us. We were all in stress.
For such high price it was no worth going on diving with this company, that doesn’t fulfil the safety procedures.

I am so thankful for Tamarindo Diving for teaching me how to dive so I can acquire certification. Davide, Andy, and Isa were all so kind and helped to soothe any nerves I had. Andy and Isa my in water teachers helped me to become confident in my skills. They all were so welcoming and knowledgeable. I am forever grateful for them showing me a whole new world. I HIGHLY recommend visiting Tamarindo Diving! They are great for helping ANY level of diver!

Thank you Tamarindo Diving!
