I am a repeat customer of SCUBA Coiba. I return to this shop because Herbie, the owner, is the pioneer of diving in this area and knows the area like none other. His instructors, Cedric and Jose, are the nest. I have to give a...More
I chose Scuba Coiba for my Open Water Padi certification... and what a great choice it was. Thank you so much Aline for your awesome teaching skills and enthousiasm. 🤗🤗 Not only did I feel extremely safe by your side, but you showed us the...More
I only had 16 dives before coming here - diving in South Asia is totally different where the water is quiet. So in the very beginning I was shocked under the water as we had to “fight” against surge and current and visibility was not...More
I took my 2 teenage children on a day diving trip with Scuba Coiba and we were all very happy with our dives. We saw more fish than any other dive we've done in the past including many reef sharks, octopus, eels and giant rays....More

Thank you Patrick, we hope to have you back as a diver one day
