kind words from our travelers

“A breath of fresh air to my planning process!”

I am quite the experienced diver and traveler, so I was skeptical working with an agency that “specializes in dive trips” since I already had my own groove for planning. What a breath of fresh air DTA brought to my planning process! They are true locals to the area with years of experience working in tourism and you can tell. They are fairly new to the dive world but know the best providers and really listen to what is important for you. You can tell they are really passionate about what they do and that is what drew me to give them a chance. I cannot wait to book my next trip with them!


They were flexible when our plans changed and helped us book new activities

We had a great trip to Costa Rica! DTA worked with us and created a great itinerary of both adventurous and relaxing activities. They were flexible when our plans changed and helped us book new activities. 10/10 recommend!

They made the reservation process clear and easy for me

I had such an amazing experience diving with Dive The Americas. From start to finish they did a fantastic job with my trip. I am so glad I booked my Cocos Liveaboard trip with them. They made the reservation process clear and easy for me and made sure that I had everything I needed each step of the way. If you are thinking of using DTA to book your next dive vacation DO IT. They took the stress out of booking my dive trip and gave me all the information I needed to feel confident in my dive vacation.

We booked our Cozumel diving trip through Dive the Americas since we didnt know anything about the area, and there were so many diving agencies that it became overwhelming. We reach out to them and they made everything super smooth for us. Took the information we had, and transformed our diving experience into a flawless trip. All questions were asked, and a lot of information shared so we could be completely ready. I cant believe I havent used them before, but they will be my agency for all my future diving trips.

It is well worth listening to somebody who knows the area as well as she does.

Kathleen scheduled a scuba certification class for my daughter and I in Uvita Costa Rica. Not only was the class fantastic, but the town was beautiful and the beaches were amazing. I can’t wait to go back and will be sure to have her book our next trip. It is well worth listening to somebody who knows the area as well as she does.

We are a travel agency with a diving addiction.

We are NOT a dive center, dive shop, or tour operator. 

 'But I’ve never booked with a travel agency because I’m not sure how it works and don’t want to pay more!' Sound familiar? We hear it all the time and honestly, we felt the same before becoming travel pros. 

With us, not only do you pay the same (or often less) than booking on your own, but you save time, get more bang for your buck, and support (from a real human) day or night, when you need it. 

Proudly a women-owned
 small business!
