Here at Go Pro Costa Rica we are dedicated to conserving our oceans. We train all of our divers to be ambassadors to the ocean and planet as well.  As part of this our dedicated ECO divemaster program, the only one of its kind, we are partnered with  the non-profit Marine Conservation Costa Rica. Through them we incorporate the unique Marine conservation and research certification into our program. A unique certification only available at this facility.

Whilst becoming a Divemaster you are also learning about conservation of our oceans. With MCCR we also offer our students the opportunity to work on our local coral rehabilitation project during their time.*

In addition we are a REEF conservation partner center and also 100% AWARE. For this reason we are proud to offer our unique Eco Divemaster program, the only dive center to do so.

Throughout your program you will be completing surveys and studies as well as taking part in any education programs with the non-profit MCCR.  This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to complete their Divemaster with a larger focus on Marine Conservation.

*please note that to work on the coral restoration project we ask for a donation to the non-profit.
