Dove with Rich Coast Diving. I had a great time. I will dive with them next time I go to Guanacaste, CR. Boat was large and spacious. Fresh fruit was available between dives.

Dove Tortuga on 6/22/2015. There is a small channel there with the wreck of a small fishing boat. This is a wonderful place to find white tip sharks. We dove the location twice and saw sharks both times. Deepest point is about 77’. Vis was about 30’ and the temp was 79f with a thermocline.

Average vis, plenty of marine life especially near the small wreck (including white tip sharks)

I would say this one was below average.. Vis was 8-10 feet not a lot to see
