“Advanced open water with Victor ftw. ”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

Eddy was great and very responsive in scheduling my class. Victor was an amazing instructor with an infectious love of diving. I had an incredible time. Casa verde is a happening place to hang on hammocks between dives. Glad I chose bocas dive center.

“Great place to learn or just dive.”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

I arrived in Bocas del Toro with no previous experience in diving. After speaking with some of the instructors I decided to go from open water all the way to dive master. The instruction has been very thorough and clear. In just over one week I have completed my Open Water and Advanced course. My primary instructor is Victor, he has been very helpful throughout my courses. All of the other dive masters and instructors have been extremely helpful and friendly. Most of the instructors speak both English and Spanish. Overall my experience has been great. The dive sites are amazing and full of aquatic life. I highly recommend diving with Bocas Dive Center.

“Ask for Evan!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

I recently completed my Open Water course with the Bocas Dive Center, my overall experience was very positive. My instructor Evan was absolutely fabulous and I would recommend him to both English and Spanish-speaking divers (he's fluent in both). Evan took the time to ensure that I truly understood all of theory involved in the course and that I had mastered all the requisite diving skills. In the water he is a calming, encouraging and enthusiastic presence which helped me overcome my initial nervousness and allowed me to truly enjoy the diving experience. Bocas Dive Center was generally a very professional outfit (although slightly disorganized at times) that I would recommend to anyone looking to dive in Bocas.
