dive and tour
When Bill Beard came to Costa Rica in 1970 there were no scuba tanks to be found. Smelling opportunity, Bill returned with tanks and began teaching scuba and promoting dive tourism. The biggest obstacle was convincing locals to show tropical fish to tourists rather than sell them. This action was the beginning of sustainable tourism in Costa Rica. Costa Rica or “Rich Coast,” is now one of the most biodiverse nations in the world with 25% of the country’s land and oceans protected, and well on its way to becoming the first carbon neutral nation. Bill Beard’s is committed to the continual education of locals and tourists to ensure that Costa Rica remains “Pura Vida.” Come experience the “Pure Life” for yourself.

She is 115 feet of flexible capacity and convenience, a dedicated dive cruiser with a global reach, specifically designed and built for long-range expeditions to destinations like Cocos and Malpalo islands. This spacious boat is everything that a serious diver or photographer could wish for - individual gear storage, private camera/strobe storage shelves with 110 & 220-volt AC power, zero-speed stabilizers and even a private washer & dryer for client’s towels and bathing suits. Her roominess and user-friendliness has introduced adventure divers, as well as professional photographers and cinematographers, to an entirely new level of live-aboard facility.
