Scuba Dive With The Best In Costa Rica!!!

Rocket Frog Divers utilizes 3 purpose built dive boats. The Pacific Express is unlike any other in the area. It features two 250HP V6 Yamaha 4 Stroke engines that allow us to visit our dive sites in a fraction of the time that it takes other dive companies. This proves especially worthwhile when you consider that some of the more popular dive sites in the region, the Bat Islands (Isle Murcileago) and the Catalinas Islands are several hour trips with other operators. The Pacific Express can make the voyage to the Catalinas in less than half an hour.

The “Tiburon” or the shark is another purpose built dive shop build for small groups. This dive vessel is perfect for exploring local dive sites in the Gulf de Papagayo with a very small group.

The Devil Ray is a catamaran style dive vessel which we acquired in 2015. It is a catamaran style vessel which offers a lot of room and comfort for our divers and also offers an upper level sun deck for surface intervals and for the voyage to and from the dive sites.

Another point that separates us from most dive shops in Costa Rica is that you will have a member of our senior staff diving on the boat with you every day. This ensures that you are getting the best possible service possible. Our owners care about the experience their customers have and will work their hardest to ensure you have the best possible service on your dive trip.

My wife and I only have a limited number of dives, though we're both very comfortable in the ocean, and after doing an internet search of dive operations in the area, we settled on Rocket Frog, and they did not disappoint. Mike was quick to respond to my e-mail inquiring about the various dives offered. We choose the local dive... More

We got my 11 year old son certified with Rocket Frog last year. His instructor Ben was fantastic as was Stefan. They did a great job taking care of him and making sure everything went smoothly and he was truly ready for certification. This is a very well run (and safe) dive operator which I really appreciated because we have... More

Great dive operation, we have been diving with them 3 times for entire weeks in the last few years. Very service oriented, knowledgeable and fun to dive with. They go out of their way to accomodate special needs to make the experience fun for everyone. Great attention to detail and excellent pre-dive briefings. We will definitely be diving with them...

Thank you to the Rocket Frogs staff for making our trip wonderful! We visited with 15 divers and were very well taken care of. We, unfortunately, hit a week with colder than normal water and worse than normal visibility but the atmosphere on the boat and the attentiveness of the staff made the trip amazing. Guard, Nikki, Marina, 'Shaggy' and... More

I dive frequently around the world, and wanted to compliment RF Divers on a friendly and professional organization. Weather conditions were challenging during my stay in January, demanding more than the usual from the dive masters and boat crew. I was impressed with their work. Also, Michael is to be credited with the communication and organization of his shop.

Great fun and good learning experience. I did the PADI Open Water Diver Certification and 1 day of diving with my adult kiddos (trip & SCUBA was a Christmas gift for them). I was a bit hesitant but after a day in the pool with Scott & Gard felt like I could survive going under water :) Both were fun,... More

These folks know what they are doing, and love it. Nere and all the staff are excellent professionals with an attentive eye toward service. We dove with them the one of the busiest weeks of the year, yet they effectively grouped us with like divers, maintained very reasonably sized groups, took great care of our gear (everything was set up...

I hate writing bad reviews (I don't think I ever have, come to think of it), but in researching for another trip, I find the insight of others invaluable. We visited Costa Rica in September and really had a poor diving experience. Rocket Frog gets incredible reviews from other travelers on Trip Advisor, so I have to believe that we... More

I am am sorry that you did not enjoy your time with rocket frog divers. Unfortunately there are days when the diving is tough, as Mother Nature can sometimes be less generous on some days.However, I do not understand why you ar holding us responsible for the weather and the diving conditions.I am sorry that you lost your sunglasses however,...
