if you are a scuba interested person and interested with pictures, may be this is not the best place. Safety and helping is good, but the experience is not so great with the cloudy water.

We were treated in the best way we could think about and the only we can say is thank you guys for the wonderful days. Thank you Andres, thank you Mehran, thank... More

I did my Divemaster certification in this Dive Center and it was a great, amazing time that I will never forget! All the Instructors are remarkable people with a big and wide knowledge, so I was perfectly prepared for every situation I could possibly get into in my new diving career. The Equipment and the boats are new, comfortable and... More

What an amazing company with the best staff. They were totally Professional but relatable, loved a joke (which put me at ease) and just generally great teachers.

I don't write many tripadvisor reviews, but this was worth it. My friend and I did both online and in person research (talking to people, chatting with other dive centers) before we landed on this shop. It is priced at a premium to competitors (e.g. 790 Mil COP vs. 650-700 Mil COP for PADI Open Water course over three days),... More
