Welcome to Dolphin Dive shop on the beautiful island of Little Corn, Nicaragua. We offer some of the best diving in the Caribbean from the Corn Island's only locally-owned dive shop.
We invite you to come and spend some time with us on an island that has remained largely untouched by the big business and tourism that has affected other Caribbean islands. Little Corn is truly a reminder of the way Caribbean life used to be.
Dolphin Dive is a small family-owned PADI DIVE RESORT, staffed by experienced PADI Instructors and offering full PADI certifications through to Divemaster, as well as fun dives for certified divers. We pride ourselves on offering tuition in small groups and ensuring that your dive experiences are both safe and enjoyable.

PLEASE READ BEFORE MAKING RESERVATIONS - DIVING RISKS & DIVING ON LITTLE CORN ISLAND
We expect all divers, whether first time students or experienced divers, to be responsible for their own health and to present themselves at the dive shop in a fit state for diving, and acknowledging that there are risks associated with any physical activities. Diving with us will require divers to be comfortable in open seas and capable of unaided entry and exit from a small boat with ladder. Diver should be aware that waves and currents are possible, and be ready to make personal decisions as to their own comfort and confidence in such conditions, and whether dives are suitable for them or not. Our staff will gladly discuss in confidence any issues that divers may have and make recommendations as to what is suitable for that diver.
All students undertaking a PADI program, and anyone doing a refresher, will be asked to read and sign the PADI Medical Statement (see the ‘courses and prices’ page on our website). It is however the divers responsibility to disclose any other conditions that may be relevant to safe diving (e.g. sickness, de-hydration, nerves etc.). We strongly recommend that anyone wishing to undertake a dive course who is over the age of 50 years old consider a dive medical before coming, irrespective of whether they answer yes or no to the questions on the medical statement.
Little Corn Island is a remote location in a poorly developed country and as such medical facilities are extremely limited. Customers are responsible for any costs associated with medical emergencies and evacuation to medical facilities and as such we recommend dive insurance, especially for those in higher risk categories e.g. due to age, weight or other physical condition.
