EQUIPEMENT and SECURITY
Because both go hand in hand and are interdependent!
Underwater their is no room for approximation; that's why we use only new and periodically checked material. For sure we provide the best equipement in town:
-AQUALUNG,SHERWOOD and SEAC BCD from XXS to XL and
-SCUBAPRO and SHERWOOD regulators with PSI or BAR manometers
-A large range of mask; CRESSI; AQUATEK; SNIPER we will find a mask which fits you.
-We use to dive with long 3mm wetsuit.
-We always bring an automatic defibrilador on board.
-All our tanks are filled uo to 200 bars/ 3000 PSI as recommended by PADI, no bad surprise on the boat.
For those who bring their own equipement our aluminium tanks have international valve; we have some DIN adapter.
When arriving in SANTA CATALINA and walk to find your dive center don't forget to ask if you can have a look; we are proud of our equipement. For sure you will come back to us; probably because you feel more safe and because you know diving accidents occure mainly by human mistake or bad condition material.
Onboard we always bring ; yearly serviced oxygen tank; GPS; marin radio; first aid kit; spare regulator; fins; mask... and much more drinkable water than what we need.
At DIVING COIBA we are proud of our equipement; that's why we prepare your kit with you the day before the dive; NO BAD SURPRISES when you reach COIBA and discover the regulator kit you are supposed to use looks more like Jacques COUSTEAU old one than it should!

SUSTAINABILITY and ECOLOGY
Because there is no waste recycling system in Catalina, we therefore have to pay more attention than usual to our use of plastic. For this we give free access to our spring water "fountain" for our customers. They can when they wish, fill their water bottle.
For the same reason we'll ask you to come here with real solid soap, not with a shower gel plastic bottle (or even better to buy it in panama, you'll save waste; weight and money).
All the staff have already been vaccinated or are waiting for their second dose (July 2021).
We have hydroalcoholic gel and facial mask in the shop and on board.
We clean our equipement with covid adapted antiseptic.
We have some mouth piece to sell if you need more security and bring it with you when your diving trip is ended.
We always provide water but we ask that you come with your own gourd or bottle.
