Scuba Divers diving from Tamarindo will enjoy diving the coastal sites just offshore from Playa Flamingo. We provide 2 tank dive trips with most of our dive sites at the Catalina Islands. (Please note that some dive sites are not located directly at Catalina islands and may be volcanic pinnacles just offshore – Exact dive sites are determined each morning based on conditions).
This archipelago of around 20 small islands is home to some of the best coastal diving in Guanacaste and Costa Rica providing great diving with frequent encounters with giant Pacific Manta rays, southern stingrays, eagle rays, devil rays, cow-nosed rays, sea turtles and white-tip sharks. This dive area has seasonal migrations of schooling Pacific Mantas from November thru April and humpback whales in both late January thru February and late July thru August. Dive sites include “The Wall” located down a steep cliff, formed on the largest island in the chain. Generally, this is a great place to see huge schools of fish, white tip reef sharks, and the graceful Pacific Giant Manta. “The Point” and “The Cleaning Station” are 2 other great dive sites which are also frequented by these gentle giants as well. Sites such as cupcake, four rocks and sombrero east and west are all great sites and keep the diving options numerous at Catalinas.
The temperature in the North Pacific coast of Costa Rica ranges between 16-30ºC/60-86ºF depending on the time of year. Visibility can change on a daily basis.
