Dive Team Training Exercises

The La Mansion Inn is proud to have supported and continues to support the formation of Costa Rica’s First Public Safety Dive Team consisting of eight (8) Costa Rican Coast Guard Officials through a financial donation to the local Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Tourism. This team can be called on at a moment’s notice for any water emergencies. This Special Dive Team can be especially useful for rescue and recovery operations in high seas. Mr. Harry Bodaan, the owner of the La Mansion Inn also serves as two-term President of the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Tourism of the Canton de Aguirre and as such, along with Cap. Scott Ferguson was the brainchild of this First Public Safety, Rescue & Recovery Dive Team and they have been taking the lead on further development and training of this highly specialized team. “Without a doubt this is a very worthwhile and historic project and deserves the attention of our community” said Bodaan and continued “As Quepenos we should be proud of being the “Home of the Costa Rican Coast Guard Academy” and will continue to seek support for this first Public Safety Dive Team which will ultimately benefit the entire Country of Costa Rica. We are looking to secure some more of the critical equipment needed such as Self Rescue Redundant Space Air System and Primary Dive Lights. Anyone interested in helping us with this project is more than welcome!”
