I took my IDC here in 2015 and now returned for my MSDT. Best PADI CDC center. The RCD team is so professional, helpful and friendly. Boats are comfortable. Dive sites are well chosen. You will feel safe at all times cause they follow every detail and PADI standards. Can't wait to return. Thanks you Martin and Brenda!

This dive shop is amazing. Everyone I've encountered has been super friendly and professional. The dive guides know the spots and found us manta and eagle rays, reef and bull sharks, and huge schools of fish during our trip. They also arranged our transportation and accommodations as well as an excellent tour for our deco day before flying home. I... More

Martha was my instructor and she was great! I cannot wait to learn more about this beautiful... More

Enjoyed a fantastic morning with a great crew, excellent dive master (Richie), and nice dives. Sharks, rays turtles and eels welcomed us into their domain. Crew handled my gear, cleaned and even fixed a minor problem. Kudos!!

Our experience with Rich at Rich Coast Diving was more than words can describe. From the moment they picked us up at our hotel to the moment they dropped us off it was first class! Our guide Rich was so great! He took time to make sure we were very comfortable and he took time to point out every animal... More

The instructor Rich was what made this experience special. His attention to detail when it comes to safety made me feel very comfortable. The dive experience itself was also amazing due to the fact Rich could spot the creatures not visible to the untrained eye. I could not have been more impressed with the company and staff. Pure excellence!!!

Very very good service with diving (everything was taken care of). Very professional, all in good spirit and high quality dive guides. We had a very good time and I was also happy that the crew had a good eye for being safe and taking no risks. I would definitely dive again with Rich Coast if I'd go back. We... More
