Here at Go Pro Costa Rica we are dedicated to conserving our environment and training the future generation of scuba diving professionals the same. We are a REEF conservation partner center and also 100% AWARE. For this reason we are proud to have developed our unique Eco Divemaster program, the only dive center in Costa Rica to do so.

Our dedicated Eco-internship program is centered around the PADI Divemaster program with an additional focus on conservation and the environment. With this program we now offer a marine conservation research certification enabling you to complete studies and research in the marine environment. We also offer Reefcheck training which is centered around general reef health and the coral watch program.  This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to work in the marine conservation world.

New for the summer of 2019 we also have a new Coral nursery program. This is run in conjunction with Marine conservation Costa Rica a non profit foundation who run a number of marine conservation projects. Eco Divemasters have an opportunity to take part in these programs and complete the Coral Restoration certification. Please note there is an additional donation to the non-profit for that program.
