You are already a certified diver and just want to dive, you came to the right spot. We are a busy dive shop offering backpacker style diving, at backpacker prices. We pride ourselves on our high standards, and between us we have over 40 years experience diving the local reefs!
CANCELLATION POLICY – Please note that when signing up for dives that we will keep that space for you and will therefore need to charge you for those dives, unless cancelled 24 hours in advance. This includes no shows for any reason, including sickness etc.
For guests of Yemaya Reefs we will unfortunately have to ask for payment in advance at the time of booking, as we have experienced very high no show and late cancellation rates, maybe due it being slightly further away.
Special Rates and Information
We’re currently diving 2 morning dives per day, meeting at 8.30am and finishing between 12-1pm.
please be at the dive shop 45 minutes before your first dive with your dive certification cards, having dived within the last year. If its been a year or more since you last dived please talk to us first about doing a refresher (see our courses page)
night dive supplement is $10 added to these prices, per person (minimum 4 people and 24 hours notice required). Package prices per person and cannot be shared
We do not charge for equipment usage so are happy to provide equipment if you do not have or do not want to bring your own. We use budget style rental BCDs, regulators etc. and adhere to the “small bubbles, no troubles” motto. Also we use full foot warm water fins (a small selection of open heel & booties), and short wetsuits in either 2 or 3 mm, so if you feel the cold you may prefer to bring your own.

Payment can be made in cash (US$ or Cordobas), or by card. Card payments are subject to a 6% processing fee charged by the banks. Please bear in mind when making reservations that weather conditions will affect dive conditions and may limit visibility and choice of dive sites. Refunds will not be given for low visibility or repeated dive sites, or for sickness (whether self induced or otherwise). We recommend you carry adequate insurance to cover you for such eventualities.
Dives booked between 20th December and 5th January will require a 20% deposit to be paid 30 days in advance, with balance to be paid for in full upon arrival in order to keep the reservation (and subject to our 24 hour cancellation policy). Refunds will only be given for weather cancellations.
Unless dives have been pre-paid then no-shows will result in the cancellation of the remainder of any dives booked. We are easily contactable in person, by phone or email every morning from 7.30am. Dives cancelled less than 24 hours before the dive will still need to be paid for, whatever the reason, including sickness etc.
We offer a 10% discount for dive professionals (Divemasters and Instructors) upon showing your pro-level card. These prices are for DMs and Instructors with proof of renewed active status. Expired status will be at regular dive prices.
Please contact us for terms and conditions for group bookings (4 or more divers). Group bookings will require a 20% non-refundable deposit 30 days prior to the reservation with the balance payable on arrival and subject to our 24 hour cancellation policy. Discounts will vary according to season.
