Dolphin Dive - Diving - Nicaragua

With over 20 unique dive sites including outstanding coral reef, caves, tunnels, overhangs and swim-throughs, scuba-diving near Little Corn Island offers something for everyone from first-timers to the experienced divers.

There is an abundance of tropical marine life with regular sightings of eagle rays, southern stingrays, nurse sharks and turtles. Some of the more obscure species include the well camouflaged toadfish, harlequin pipefish and the frilly juveniles drum fish. Dive Tarpon Chanel and you could see a hammerhead!

Dolphin Dive is a small, personal dive shop with a mixture of local and European staff. In this shop, guests really do come first and can even choose the dive sites. Dives go out three times a day (about a 10 minute journey)and each last from 50 minutes to an hour. Some sites are shallow enough to snorkel on as well for those not wishing to go under. Offering Padi courses, Dolphin Dive usually has the flexibility for courses to start whenever the customer wants, from DSD to Divemaster.

There is a classroom on the premise or lessons take place under an umbrella on the beach. Student numbers per instructor are kept low. Little Corn is a great place to learn to dive due to clear water and calm seas most of the year round. Dolphin Dive also has a small shop selling insect repellent, suncream and a free book exchange.
