Nicaragua’s 1st dive shop established over 15 years ago, and now has developed into a 5* PADI dive center not only taking people diving on the untouched reefs surrounding Little Corn island, but also teaching kids and adults to dive for fun, guide as dive masters and teach as instructors both diving and non diving activities. Our center is fully equipped with all new equipment including tanks, weights, belts, BCD’s, Regulators, masks, fins & snorkels as well as other training and safety equipment. We have 2 specially designed dive pangas taking maximum 10 – 12 people (max 6 fun divers per DM & 4 students per instructor) including staff keeping our training and certified divers separate as much as possible and the groups small and personal.

Great diving experience!

We dove with a group of 3 with Manu a couple of times. Decent equipment, good boat and great dive spots. We were 2 advanced and 1 OW divers. Would recommend this diving centre.

I was referred to Dive Little Corn by a friend that had completed his DMT with DLC several years ago. I had wanted to learn how to dive for some time but was reluctant to learn in a swimming pool. Little Corn Island was a great place for me to learn because almost all of the dive sites are relatively... More

...because I'd hate for it to become too popular & attract the hordes. Everyone at the shop was great to dive with and, after diving, they were fun to socialize with afterwards whether having dinner (or breakfast, in the case of Manu), drinks, or just shooting the breeze. Although there's no wall to speak of and the weather didn't allow... More

The most enjoyable couple of days I've had in Nicaragua were spent learning how to dive at Dive Little Corn! The staff at Dive Little Corn are all the loveliest people you could ask for, and at the same time professional and experienced. Manu, my diving instructor, made all tasks fun and helped everyone in our group feel comfortable and... More

I had a great experience with Dive Little Corn dive shop. Did 12 dives including 2 night dives (1 solo with master; other diver cancelled and he still took me for like $35!!!). Captain, crew, staff and dive masters were all awesome. The value was great. This was late January, so it was still somewhat stormy so I was not... More

Just returned from my third trip to the island. Definitely not the quality of the past. Reservations were difficult as communication was limited. Booked at Casa Iguana (the affiliated hotel) and received confirmation but when I reconfirmed I was told that it was full. Didn't care that I had a confirmation. The dive shop reservation was set and did happen.... More

My boyfriend travelled to little corn specifically to do our PADI course. Originally we booked with dolphin dive but switched because we heard great things about dive little corn-we were very glad to have heeded the advice. We were trained by Adrian who is professional, extremely knowledgable about the area and an exceptional teacher. The course was well priced, the... More
