About our FOUNDER AND director: Phil O'Shea
Scuba Dive Costa Rica was established in April of 2016 in Playa Flamingo by Irish PADI Course Director, Phil O’Shea. The addition of the sales shop in Tamarindo was later opened in May 2017.
PADI Course Director Phil O’Shea has been involved in the Scuba Diving Industry for close to 20 years working in 5 and 7 Star Resorts in the Middle East and Asia. Working in such environments and experiencing exposure to VIP's and Celebrities, Phil has gained a wealth of experience to provide excellent service, quality and above all a safe experiences. Phil enjoys all aspects of scuba diving but if asked what he likes most, he would reply developing new diving professionals through the PADI Divemaster and Instructor courses. Also, recreational levels such as Deep, Wreck and Nitrox and then introducing divers to TEC Diving through the PADI TECREC range of courses. Always in the employment of others, SDCR was established so Phil could finally break away and become his own boss and start to build his own diving business with the extensive knowledge and experience achieved over 2 decades. Costa Rica is a rich biodiverse country above and below the water and with such a healthy flow of tourists from all over the world, Costa Rica came out on top for the location for this new Scuba Diving operation.
