About this trip

Our Multi-Day Trips are the best way to experience diving in Coiba National Park! Imagine diving multiple times each day in the park’s mesmerizing waters, being located within fifteen to 50 minutes of some of the most incredible diving! Please note that these multi-day trips are only for experienced divers.

In Multi-Day trips we also visit dive sites, what cannot be visited on day trips due to remote locations and/or challenging conditions and required experience level. These trips offer the best diving the central American Pacific coast has to offer.

General Itinerary

We leave Monday, 8th of May, at 8:00 am from our dive center on Santa Catalina's beach and after 3 dives at Coiba National Park we head to a small hostel located on the coastline a stone-throw from the borders to Coiba National Park, dive from there the second day and return after 3 dives, Wednesday, 10th of May, around 3:00 to 4:00 pm. All food and beverages included.

The hostel offers basic but clean accommodation with basic electricity and cold water shower. We try to get a private room for couples, but cannot always guarantee it. If you like a much better accommodation AND be close to the dive sites, please check out our option at the Liquid Jugle Lab on private Simca Island.

Coiba National Park, 9 dives in 3 days for experienced divers

We ask our divers to test their equipment at our dive center before leaving Santa Catalina beach between 8:00 and 8:30, so you should be here the afternoon before ill 6:30 or in the morning between 7:30 and 7:45. After a general briefing, we take a boat ride of 1 to 1:30 hours to our first dive site, where you will receive the briefing of the site and any special procedures for it. After a maximal dive time of an hour, we will have a break on one of Coiba’s beaches to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings, some beaches offer also excellent snorkeling, or possibilities to see monkeys, birds, butterflies or crocodiles. After the break, we go for another dive and will make another break on a beach where we will serve the packed lunch. After sufficient time to digest we will go for another third dive before we reach the hostel in the late afternoon. After a welcome drink and a snack, you will check into your room and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere or have a walk on the beach or the little fishing village. Dinner will be served around 7:00 pm. The next day we will invite you to a hearty breakfast around 7:00 am and go for another exciting day of 3 dives. On the last day, we will be back after the third dive around 3:00 to 4:00 pm at Santa Catalina again.

Scuba Coiba, the ORIGINAL Dive Center in Santa Catalina & Coiba since 2003. If big fish and plenty of fish is what you want, we are here to help you encounter them


It was absolutely great decision to join Scuba Coiba. All the people there are very kind, helpful and the diving is really amazing. I dived there just for two days and the both days were different but really cool. I wish I can be there a few days more.

I had a great time. Cynthia is great dive instructor, she made me feel safe all the time and showed us great spots. Also the food for lunch and the snacks were great (I’m vegetarian and they made me a great meal!) The gear of Scuba Coiba is in excellent state and the people are awesome (also in communication). I highly recommend diving with Scuba Coiba.

It was a fantastic trip with a perfect organised crew. We forgot to book a trip early so we had to write the diving center the day before. Luckily they had space for two beginners. First Cynthia explain us how to dive and the most important things. Then we started training right at the sea. After some training and easy exercises we started with real diving down to 12 meters. We saw a lot of fish, turtles and sharks. Cynthia made pictures and videos and send them to us after the trip It was a fantastic experience and I would definitely recommend booking a trip with this crew!
