This is our 2nd visit to Bocas Del Toro and both times we have went Scuba Diving with Starfleet. The staff is the best, Roosevelt is very patient and a great instructor. Great diving for beginners and experienced divers.

Starfleet is not the biggest dive shop, nor the fanciest, but is one of the original and the best place to dive in Bocas. Manuel & Chombo pay a great attention to detail and deliver personalized attention that the big dive shops can't. I come...More

Catastrophic, unprofessional, unfriendly, enervating, dangerous! If you want the whole story, here it is: I did my Open Water Certificate with their instructor Roosvelt Diaz, an unfriendly man without humor. The course itself was chaotic, because Roosvelt is unable to concentrate on his job. During...More

My husband and I were PADI certified here several years ago. I love diving here every year when we return Bocas. Always smiling faces from Nilvea on the reception desk to the instructor/ master divers Chombo and Manuel. Always personalized, great dives with Starfleet!
