Some great dives with Sirius, I did four dives and we saw sharks in 3/4. Lots of fish and beautiful corals. I felt a little rushed getting the equipment on and when I took time to do my checks before getting to the water the staff seemed a little inpatient. Glad I insisted though cause on one occasion the tank... More

Good service and kind people. They take you on a boat to two diving sites, the main atrraction is to swim with sharks, which sounds scary but it's actually great.

By Yellow Home Hotel recommendation we contacted Daniel, he and Andres went to the Hotel to picked us up. We took a diving minicourse lead by Charlie, he firstly gave us instruction about equipment and the principles of scuba diving. After some practice in shallow waters we went by boat to a coral reef for our first ever dive! We... More

Got recommended this dive school from a friend and was disappointed. The setup is a bit too casual and we didn't find out where we were going or who our guide was until we were on the boat. Also the price we had to pay differed from the website and was more expensive than any others on the island. Guides... More

If you want to dive in Providencia, you must go to Cirius Dive Center. The staff is warm, friendly and caring. Thank you so much for this baptism in the seabed, beautiful experience on the authentic island of Providencia .

If you are an experienced diver, go with them! They will adapt the dive at your level! So no one will get bored. They have their own boat, so they are able to reach the best place by their own! Great staff, kind, responsible and friendly! Tottally recommend it!

I did 10 immersions with sirius in June 16. They have a very professional and helpful staff, equipment (tanks, bcd and regulators) in good conditions, all dive preceded by briefing, safely conducted respecting customers levels. Price is good, compared with other famous dive sites. The boat could be better, but it's not a real problem because the sea is usually... More

Took 2 dives with them. One off La Pared and the other off Manzanillo Beach. Guides were professional and at least one of them spoke excellent English. There were no lioinfish kills to attract sharks. Equipment was in excellent shape. 200K COP for 2 dives with all equipment.
