Shop owner Herbie was very helpful when we were planning the trip. We got info about accommodation, instructions on how to get to Santa Catalina and so on. The Coiba diving was excellent and their chefs at the island were amazing. We ate one of the best meals of our whole vacation from Scuba Coiba chefs. Instructor Ellie during the... More

Great staff, real diving lovers could not have been a better trip thanks to the two dive instructors Eli and Ben and the owner Herbie. Stayed for 4 days including a night on Coiba but I could have stayed longer. Strongly recommend to anyone looking for some great diving and to experience it with great dive instructors who offer more... More

We recently dived with Scuba Coiba as certified open water divers. Our instructor Ben was friendly, helpful and extremely reassuring. All the staff at Scuba Coiba had great knowledge of the area and answered all our questions. We had a great time, would highly recommend.

Herbie S, Director General at Scuba Coiba, responded to this review

Thanks for your review. I do not know when you where diving with us, as you state in October 2016, but Cedric does not work with us since June 2016. But it does not matter really. First I would like to congratulate you for your correct reaction to a potential dangerous situation (running out of air). This shows a great... More

I got my Open Waters certificate at Scuba Coiba in Santa Catalina. Really pleased! I was initially drawn in more by the fancy shop belonging to the competition down the road but I was soon rest assured when I saw Scuba Coiba a much better boat and of course my instructor Nik was very experienced and fantastic. Thank you so... More

We made our very first dive with Scuba Coiba and it was amazing! Nick, the dive instructor, is really good! The staff is fluent in German, English and Spanish. I can highly recommend Scuba Coiba.

My friend and I booked a trip through Scuba Coiba based on the recommendation of someone else. We were going to be in Santa Catalina for a few nights and knew we wanted to do a discovery dive on Coiba. Scuba Coiba offered competitive rates and easy customer service to book in advance. We were asked to pay a $20... More

Scuba Coiba is my favorite shop there, the owner Herbie and the entire team is just wonderful! The Orca is a really cool boat with a rood in case it rains and the underwater world is just spectacular!
