I had the opportunity to spend three weeks with the instructors at Oceans Unlimited over the month of March whilst I was completing my PADI Divemaster and EFR Instructor certifications. All I can say is that the crew there is top notch! I’ve been diving at a quite a few places all over the world, and the instructors/staff here were second-to-none. JT (Jeiti), Brad, Tyler, Melissa, and Georgia are all great to work with and are very knowledgeable in their craft. The next time I’m in Costa Rica, I will be sure to use Oceans Unlimited again!
Bob runs a very clean shop in the heart of Marina Pez Vela. It’s no wonder the shop is booked days, if not weeks, in advance. I strongly recommend planning ahead for your trip. If you’re looking to get certified, ask for Brad, Mel, or Tyler. All are EXCELLENT instructors and adapt their teaching style to the students in class (I was able to see this firsthand multiple times as I shadowed different classes – and even got to see how Tyler managed two extremely different personalities and skillsets when watching my girlfriend and another new diver go through their certification course). If you’re looking to become a Professional in the dive industry, definitely work through Go Pro Costa Rica. Georgia and Brad will help make it happen. While you’re bound to learn a lot, you’re guaranteed to have a blast doing so.
