I had a great experience with BA Divers. They were friendly and helpful and gave me great advice. I would recommend them to anyone - I am from Coco but glad I drove through Hermosa and found them. The owner really emulated what and who the diving community should emulate.

We did two trips with these guys back in December 2016. The first one was at Monkey Head island and another spot nearby. The guides did a great job, the boat and equipment were all good. Ultimately the conditions weren't very good so the dives were good, not great, but you can't account for that. Second day we went for... More

We dove with BA Divers on 4 different days during our holiday. Every dive experience was unique and great. We brought our own equipment. But one day our dive master thought the water might be colder so he brought a extra wet suit. We didn't need it as the water was ok. But the thought was appreciated. 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍 The visibility... More

Omar was great in preparing them in the pool before our dive, teaching them the basics, and getting them ready for anything that might happen under the water. After a brief session with him,...

At the recommendation of Mardigi Tours, we booked at private boat for the day. We scuba dove, deep-see fished, tubed, visited a secluded beach to paddle board and had lunch. Very nice day on a comfortable boat with 2 crew

Despite the wind and waves my husband and son enjoyed the 1/2 day fishing tour and my other son and his wife enjoyed the dive trip. Pick up at our beach resort was a real plus. Guides were great and the equipment was in very good shape.

Went on a two dive day trip with BA Divers and was awesome. Unfortunately, the visibility wasn't the best when we dove at Catalinas, but the staff made it well worth the trip.
