Scuba Diving In Costa Rica Pacific Ocean And Mainland Tours - Bill Beard Costa Rica


Note From Yellowstone Divers: Yellowstone Divers has already kicked off the year with our TENTH group trip to Costa Rica! We took a group of 23 (15 divers) to Playa Hermosa on the Pacific side of Costa Rica on January 28-February 4, 2017 with Bill Beard’s. It was an absolutely wonderful trip – THANK YOU to all of our travelers for another exceptional vacation.

Tris Advisor Reviews Of Bill Beard’s: SEA MORE

Mainland diving in Costa Rica is outstanding, Cocos Island is mind blowing.  Diving the Bat Islands offers high adrenaline excitement and Cano Island is right ip there with the best. Cocos Island is only available by live a board.  Bat & Cano Islands are available by live a board and also as a day dive from a mainland resort. One thing that all three have in common is that Bill Beard’s provides pre and post dive trip adventure tours throughout the country from Puntarenas where the boats embark and disembark and daily dive trips and adventure tours from the beach resorts as well.

Bat Islands

The Murcielegos, commonly called “The Bats,” are dive sites famous for high-voltage adventure diving. They are a chain of small islands that extend far out into the Pacific waters. The result is larger schools of fish, more pelagic species and many times better visibility. A popular dive site is “Big Scare” where divers often find themselves surrounded by six to a dozen large 8-12 ft Bull Sharks! At Black Rock, an isolated pinnacle, it is common to see squadrons of eagle rays, stratas of schooling fish, such as Horse-eyed Jacks, Snapper, Spade Fish, Grunts and Gaff-top Sail Pompano, and an occasional Manta Ray or schools of cow-nosed rays. During the months of June and July there is a likelihood of seeing migrating Orcas or Humpback Whales and there are often numerous mating turtles on the boat ride to the Bats.

Isla del Caño

Isla del Caño in the Pacific Ocean is one of Costa Rica’s top dive spots, with great visibility and abundant marine life that is attracted by the deep, cold waters. Species include sea turtles, dolphins, manta rays, tuna, grouper, snapper, barracuda and sharks, as well as humpback and pilot whales. The island is a marine biological reserve, so diver numbers are strictly regulated.


Sublimely beautiful Costa Rica has something for everyone. The treats range from exciting adventure to leisurely relaxation, and everything in between that we can add to your diving package. Furthermore, tourists can sample the laid-back national lifestyle that ticos (the name the Costa Ricans call themselves) refer to as ‘Pura Vida’ – ‘pure life’: no stress, no hassle. All this, combined with unsurpassed natural beauty and a developed and accommodating tourist industry, makes Costa Rica a wonderful place to visit and vacation.

Our agents can set up the all inclusive or al a carte vacation package and itinerary you want throughout the country. There is no charge for our service and we’ll save you money and lots of time and you’ll get the vacation you want.
