Bocas Dive Center has the warmest staff on the island. They really treat you like family. Other dive centers are always trying to sell you something, but BDC has such a passion and love for the ocean. It's clear that from when you come in, you are not being taken advantage of or being pursued as a tourist. They are genuine and care about you. Their structure is very laid back, but that's not BDC. That's just Bocas! If you want to not just have a great dive experience, but leave with a bunch of great friends and memories, Bocas Dive Center Is where you need to go. Women are very very respected there and that was one of the major draws for me. I never felt uncomfortable about the staff being mostly male. Certification and dives can be in both English and Spanish. Don't hesitate. It's the best place to be in town, even when you're not diving. Arrived as a stranger, leaving as family.

I went on easter time to "Bocas" to learn how to scuba dive. Some friends of mine went here 4 months before and they highly recomended me this diving school. And they were right. I met only nice and honest people that were highly commited with their job. Very patient and willing to help the student always. Besides that the facilities and their equipment were very good!

I cannot recommend Bocas Dive Center enough! They were organized, professional, affordable and made me feel like a part of their family. Definitely one of my favorite experiences while staying in Bocas Del Toro. JC is the man and a big big thanks to Julian for keeping me safe, sane and calm under the water and Alexis and the whole crew for everything! I can't wait to come back and hope it is sooner rather than later.
