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.

Had a great day, I did scuba while my friend did snuba. They took great care of us start to finish. Saw tons of fish, octopus, eels, I think a sea snake and heard the whales talk.

Mike and Max went way above expectations. Took care of the kids doing snuba while the wife and I scuba. They take safety very seriously. You will not be disappointed with this pair.

Hola, Best way to book is by email (snubacostarica@gmail) and I would suggest doing so quickly. Christmas is insanely busy and tours fill up fast.
