Scuba Dive Costa Rica is a friendly and convenient PADI 5 Star Dive Resort located in Playa Potrero and with a sales shop Tamarindo. SDCR is a boutique operation catering for 8 divers max per day for your enjoyment and safety. We dive Las Catalinas Islands everyday (except Monday) and welcome all certified divers. We also offer Discover Scuba and Snorkeling experiences for those without a certification. We conduct PADI Open Water and Discover Scuba courses daily in addition to PADI advanced courses for those that want to further their scuba training. If you have started a PADI Course and want to get finished up we can assist you with completing your course and getting you certified. Our boat departs from the Costa Rica Sailing Center which is a great place to hang out for the day, with bar, restaurant and pool facilities onsite. We offer transfers from most locations in the general area.
