Know More about this tour

Make your way to the designated meeting point at Flamingo Beach in Tamarindo.

Start with a 40-minute class in the pool that teaches fundamental techniques for diving. Once you have some practice and feel comfortable with the equipment, head out by boat to the Catalina Islands, located within a few miles offshore.

Your tour includes two 40-minute dives at two different sites with a maximum depth of 40 feet (12 meters).

The Catalina Islands consist of volcanic rock formations that rise out of the Pacific Ocean in front of Flamingo Bay. The aquatic fauna is rich and varied, with colorful schools of fish, white tip reef sharks, eagle rays, devil rays, giant mantas, octopus, angelfish, damsel fish, seahorses, moray eels, and turtles often spotted.

After five hours, your tour ends with return to the starting point.

    This tour states that we would be scuba diving at Catalina Island. That was the only reason why my son and I went on this tour. However, we were informed that we would not be going to Catalina Island while we were already on the boat with our wet suits on! We went to a different spot where I saw a few fish but nothing like Catalina Island that I paid to visit. They said that we could not go to Catalina Island because of the weather conditions. However the weather was great! They should of informed us before we got on the boat.
