Guide Bio

Brenda, along with her husband Martin, are the owner/operators of Rich Coast Diving, and PADI Course Directors themselves.

They took over the company in 2005, and are now the only PADI 5* CDC facility with a Green Star Award in Costa Rica.

Brenda is in charge of the shop and staff and Martin is head of training. They offer various internships and of course the Instructor Development Courses which run 5 times a year.

Local dives go out everyday either in the morning or afternoon and they are more than happy to take you to the Catalinas from November till May to see the giant manta rays or to the Bats from May till November to encounter the magnificent Bull sharks.

Join Brenda and Martin for diving adventures along the Playas del Coco, Guancaste – you won’t regret signing up with this top notch diving duo!
