    Great customer service and friendly staff. I did eight dives with these guys and wish I could have done more. They handle all tank changes and rise your equipment for you - then have it on the boat ready for you the next morning. We saw 15 sharks on one dive! Would dive with these guys again.

    My wife and I had a incredible time diving 5 days with Summer Salt. Great Family run business, professional, safe and great fun. I would recommend them to anyone considering Costa Rica as a future dive destination.

    10/10 This is such an amazing team to dive with. The intimate experience, skill, knowledge they offer is extraordinary. Prior to diving we met with Scott to review our wishes & needs. At this time he offered to take our equipment to ensure it was checked prior to our first dive and subsequently before & after each day of diving. It was wonderful to have someone care for all the gear, including wetsuits. We literally just had to show up, everything else was looked after by Scott & Crew.
    We visited Costa Rica Nov25-Dec 6th and dove for five days. The crew took us to many memorable dive sites near Playa Coco, and Catalina Islands including Monkey Rock, Elephant, Punta Gorda, Buenas Tardes, Tortuga etc.
    The fish were plentiful, and we saw Rays,Sharks,Eels, Turtles, Dolphin, Starfish, Puffer, Angel, Parrot, Golby, Blenny, Wrasse,Tuna, Jack, Butterfly, Rock, Nudibranch, Conch, +++++.
    For me this was a real special trip. I had a bad experience in Maui, I was one dive away from completing my open water certification and almost gave up diving. My husband even admitted he was concerned I would not continue to dive. I took lessons back in Winnipeg and with the skill, and patience of Scott & Roy I was able to get certified as an open water diver. With the help of these amazing individuals, the support of my husband, encouragement of our friends that accompanied us on this trip I learned to love the sport!
    Speaking from experience I can’t emphasize enough how important the crew you hire is to make you feel secure, safe, teach & review the skills to ensure you have mastered & understood what is required to have a fun & safe dive.
    Scott & Roy shared leading the dives, being fairly new to the sport I naturally stayed close to Roy. He had the biggest knife :)
    While diving captain Santos watched for bubbles and the boat was easily accessible as soon as we surfaced. During our dive intervals Santos navigated the waters like a pro and took us to many amazing beaches. We will be back! Thank you for making this a great experience for us all. Pura Vida!

    Rocky amd his crew were super skillful in showing us the great things to see while scuba diving in Costa Rica. Some of my family were a little nervous about diving and he set them at peace and helped every step of the way. Thanks again

    Amazing dive center and team, i totally recommend it and im going to come back.

    I had an amazing week of diving with Life & Dive, we went to Bat Island, Catalinas, Papagayo and others, they really know each spot perfectly, which helped to get sightings of all the animals i was looking for (bull sharks, mantas, eagle rays, octopus, mobulas).

    In my opinion you have at least two reasons to make your choice, the first one is that the team, Luka, Gio and Martin are really nice and always looking for you to have a good time, and the second is that they have top notch, brand new equipment (Scubapro), nothing better than diving with new BCDs, regulators, etc. Last but not least they have the best boat of Cocos, which is key when you go diving to Bat or Catalinas which are a bit far.

    Summarizing i totally recommend Life & Dive, you cannot make a mistake if you come with them.
