    What to Expect
    Prepare for your very first ocean dive by learning basic scuba skills in a pool alongside a certified instructor. You can complete this portion of your tour the afternoon before your ocean dive or at approximately 6:30 a.m. on the day of your dive.

    At 7:30 a.m., board a diving boat and head out to Las Catalinas Islands, known for their populations of tropical fish, eels, sea horses, giant manta rays, and more. Dive down to a maximum depth of 36 feet (12 meters), with an instructor on board the whole time.

    At the end of your dive, return to shore, enjoying the clear view of the Guanacaste coastline along the way.
