Scuba Dive With The Best In Costa Rica!!!

Rocket Frog Divers utilizes 3 purpose built dive boats. The Pacific Express is unlike any other in the area. It features two 250HP V6 Yamaha 4 Stroke engines that allow us to visit our dive sites in a fraction of the time that it takes other dive companies. This proves especially worthwhile when you consider that some of the more popular dive sites in the region, the Bat Islands (Isle Murcileago) and the Catalinas Islands are several hour trips with other operators. The Pacific Express can make the voyage to the Catalinas in less than half an hour.

The “Tiburon” or the shark is another purpose built dive shop build for small groups. This dive vessel is perfect for exploring local dive sites in the Gulf de Papagayo with a very small group.

The Devil Ray is a catamaran style dive vessel which we acquired in 2015. It is a catamaran style vessel which offers a lot of room and comfort for our divers and also offers an upper level sun deck for surface intervals and for the voyage to and from the dive sites.

Another point that separates us from most dive shops in Costa Rica is that you will have a member of our senior staff diving on the boat with you every day. This ensures that you are getting the best possible service possible. Our owners care about the experience their customers have and will work their hardest to ensure you have the best possible service on your dive trip.

Just returned from a 2 week stay in Playas del Coco, Guanacaste Region, Costa Rica. Had heard that some pretty great diving could be experienced in the area, and had some encouraging initial contacts with Mike as he described what we could anticipate, costs, transport, etc. In turn, we decided to do all our diving with this outfit and we...

This dive shop accommodated me as a solo diver, buddying me up with people for 5 days of great diving. They have several boats, the two I experienced were very fast & nice, which gets you to & from the dive sites quicker. I liked their ladder to get out of the water. They always had fresh fruit, cold bottled... More

Costa Rica is known for a laid back culture. Pura Vida is real and Rocket Frog exemplifies it. Military precision and logistics meet the relaxed, family style of a beautiful country. Simply the best dive shop I've ever worked with and highly recommended!

Oh what a great dive shop!! Michael was a great guy and we had wonderful dive masters!! Loved the boats and the staff and the dives! We saw some whales before plunging into our last dives but didn't see or hear them under the surface, although I was hopeful. We will go back to dive with Rocket Frogs!! Can't wait!

Our group of 22 divers spent a week with Mike of Rocket Frog Divers in the Playa Hermosa area. We used a catamaran for the dive boat. The divemasters were excellent, knowledgeable, and very helpful. During our trip, the visibility in the water was generally poor, due to a huge amount of nutirients. We did see turtles, southern rays, white... More

We wanted to dive a little in Costa Rica and found this company on PADI. They had a room for us as well, and as they only had 3 rooms total, we were pretty much in our private complex with private pool, 1 minute away from the beach (and father rooster's) on foot, which was really great. The diving staff... More

We had an awesome 2 days of diving with this shop. They picked us up beachfront at the RUI Palace. My husband and I were recently certified in Feb and these were our 8-12 dives post certification. They were very accommodating and even though these were a bit more advanced diving conditions we felt very safe. The marine life you... More
