Chico's Dive Shop, Since 1968. Much has changed over the years in the scuba business; the level of knowledge, equipment development, the teaching procedures, the dive boats, the global weather, ecological awareness and many other topics... we have experienced many changes in the past 44 years. We have learned a lot and we keep learning as the dive business continues to improve, as a dive operator we know scuba diving is about teaching, learning, enjoying, Sharing, relaxing, exploring, discovering, safety and making new friends.If you last 44 years in the dive business is because you know!!Rodolfo De Lamprecht

I did my first dives in over 7 years today. We did two tanks at Los Arcos and it was phenomenal!!! Saw eels, lobster, mantas, snakes, and tons of colorful fish. The staff was excellent and took great care of everybody on board. Highly recommended!!!
