This year we start a new tradition and encourage all divers to have fun together. The last day of October is of course Halloween and we have prepared something special for this day. We invite you to the Pumpkin Carving Competition underwater! Each person will have a chance to create their “scary” pumpkin underwater. This is not the end though! Each created pumpkin will take part in the competition and the authors of the three best works will receive attractive prizes. Do not wait any longer and book your place today, as the number of places is limited.


If you do not have a diver’s license, you still have a chance to get one!

Sign up for a diving course today.

Tour Details

We will start the day at 7 am in our diving center, where you will be greeted with a delicious breakfast and unlimited coffee. During this time, you will have the opportunity to see your pumpkins and plan how to prepare it so that it takes first place in the competition.

Then we will take our boat to the Isla del Cano, where we will make two dives. The first will be a recreational dive where you will have the chance to see sharks, turtles and other marine animals.

The second dive will be a competition dive. Each person will get a pumpkin and the necessary tools to do their competition work. The time to complete it is a maximum of 45 minutes, but it also depends on your air consumption. You must finish working on the pumpkin when you reach the pressure of 70 bar (1000psi).

Each work will be photographed and the photos will be published on our social media. From the moment of publication, anyone can vote for the best work in their opinion. Voting will take one week. After the voting is finished and the votes are counted, we will select three people whose works received the most votes and we will hand out attractive prizes:

In the Uvita area you will find many hotels of various classes and prices. It all depends on your budget and requirements. If you want affordable accommodation, we invite you to our hostel, which is located in our diving base. Details of this offer can be found at: https://safetystophostel.com


How can I reserve a seat?

To maintain a high standard, we have decided to limit the number of places to 10. If you want to book your participation, we will ask for an advance payment of $ 100. We accept many payment methods, and among the most popular you will find PayPal, Bitcoin, transfer to a local account in Costa Rica or transfer to a local account in Europe. Make a reservation today and our team will contact you for details.


Can I cancel my booking?

Due to the fact that this is a special event and not a regular tour, the cancellation policy is more restrictive. You can cancel a paid reservation free of charge up to 30 days from the planned date of the event. After that date, the entire advance payment will be retained by us in order to pay for the booking costs. Contact us if you have any questions.
