guided dives for certified divers
If you are a certified diver, then you will definitely want to join us and dive the Catalinas. Come and experience the amazing marine life that these volcanic rock formations have to offer. Swim through massive schools of fish, be amazed by the Manta rays gliding overhead, or the timid Whitetip reef sharks below. Say hello to a turtle, or see an octopus changing colour and shape as it makes its way from one hidey-hole to another. Go in search for the tiny and beautiful Harlequin shrimp, or the elusive Pacific seahorse. With dolphins jumping and playing in the bow waves, different species of puffers, eels, rays, and tonnes of fish always around, this really is an aquatic wonderland.
If you have been out of the water for a while perhaps you should think about refreshing your diving skills before going on a dive to the Catalinas. Our short and simple refresh program is carried out in a pool where you will practice some basic skills and buoyancy control, leaving you confident and comfortable before heading back to the blue.

100% passionate. 100% professional
One Love Ocean Divers are different to other dive operations in the area with just how flexible we can be when it comes to your training. Vacation time can quickly get filled up with all of the fantastic sights and tours Costa Rica has to offer, and you do not know how you are going to fit everything in. Or, if you are lucky enough to live out here, you find that your day gets filled up before you even know it. At One Love we fit your training schedule in around you, and not the other way around. We are happy to schedule classroom and pool sessions for morning, afternoon or even in the evening. If you have a pool where you are staying and want to complete the pool training there, not a problem, we can make it happen*. What works for you is what works for One Love.
