Scuba Diving Tour

The Gulf of Papagayo offers some of the Pacific Ocean’s most interesting marine diversity. The plankton-rich waters support numerous species from big to small. On any given day you may see frogfish, harlequin clown shrimp, seahorses, and octopus, or you might have a lucky encounter with schooling eagle rays, white tip reef sharks, giant Pacific manta rays, or a passing whale shark. It is a great place to study animal behavior, and the perfect location to be in the middle of the action.

 

Our local dive sites are all found within a 15 minute boat ride of our Playa Ocotal location. They include sites such as Tortuga, Argentina Point, Supressa, Monkey Head, Turning Point, Shark Shallows, Punta Gorda, the Aquarium, and Palmares to name but a few. There are approximately 30 local dive sites at which our divemasters and captains are expert guides. Water temperatures and visibility range incredibly in our waters. It is not uncommon for temperatures to change by as much as 5 degrees celsius on any given day. There are often extreme thermoclines which also are very hard to predict. The water generally is warm enough that a 3mm wetsuit will suffice. The visibility is also quite hard to predict. In the dry season the visibility can range from 10-70 feet, and again can change almost daily. The massive changes that occur here are what makes the marine life so abundant and diverse.

 

The Catalinas are situated about a half hour boat ride from our location at Playa Ocotal and offer your best chance to swim with the Pacific Giant Mantas in Costa Rica. The Catalinas’ are an isolated group of islands, south of our dive shop.. They are perfect places for large schools of fish, rays, and other marine life to congregate. The huge prize is to swim with the Pacific Giant Manta whose wing span can be wider than a vehicle is long. These can be found in the Catalinas for most of the year. There has also been occasional whale shark and orca whale sightings in the area. Sightings of the humpback whale and dolphins are also quite common.

Visibility in the Catalinas ranges throughout the year, however, the best visibility can often be found from the months of May through November.

 

The Bat Islands are a world class dive location that has been protected by the Costa Rican government. The Islands are located in the far north of Costa Rica and are at the edge of Santa Rosa National Park. These islands are one of the only places in Costa Rica that you can dive with the bull sharks. The dive sites are approximately a 50 minute trip with our boat from our Playa Ocotal location. Because of the protected status and the remote location, this area is absolutely full of marine life. The schools of fish are bigger in numbers and size at the Bat Islands. You can encounter schools of devil rays which can be into the thousands. You can also find the Manta Rays at some of the dive locations as well as several different species of rays, sharks, turtles, eels, and too many fish to mention. When you book with Rocket Frog Divers you are booking with the best dive shop in Costa Rica. We will work with you to give you the custom trip of your dreams! Let us take you scuba diving in Costa Rica!

 

Diving tours are from 8am to 12pm.
