I agree with a lot of the comments here -- good and bad. Yes, they have some good dive masters, yes, it's all a bit chaotic and poorly organized (if you know you have to return to shore to get the tanks for the second dive, maybe things could be ready to go so the transition is quick. Same with... More

Best diving, best instructors ever! We went to inquire about diving details and had such a warm welcome. Some of the competitors on the island are a bit cheaper but definitely not as friendly. We felt so comfortable with the instructors and they were so educated and made the whole experience great fun. They also personalize the experience and like... More

Ok so I read a good deal of the comment regarding their experience and while I agree that they could appear uncaring I can vouch for them and say they did. My buddy Andrew, a divemaster, and I went to Providencia having heard of him before and decided to go diving for two days. We met Felipe and discussed everything... More

We did 7 dives with Felipe and can't recommend this dive shop, mainly due to safety concerns, quality of equipment, friendliness/management and professionalism/conservation. 1) Safety: - Sharks are attracted by hunting lion fish and feeding them. Sharks come really close and get nervous due to the prey. Dive Master don't tell you beforehand that there will be a number of... More

Our children (8) ages 6-21 years. ; all had extraordinary educational, enjoyable and enrichment activities according to their age from snorkeling and observing baby sharks and protecting the nurseries to advance deep and night dives. Very reasonably price. We... More

Just back from a few days on the island and diving with Felipe. He is a wonderful guide and teacher. Recommended for any level diver, and Felipe knows the local dive spots like the back of his hand. Also his boat hand Allen is super helpful.

Been diving with them for many years now, and every time is an amazing adventure. There are a lot of awesome diving spots to go to. Ask for Pichi or Felipe. They are really good divers and awesome people.
