Diving in Providencia is an amazing experience as it is probably one of the most beautiful location on earth to admire marine life. I did my advance certification with Felipe diving centre, everything was fine except that once I finished the session in almost emergency situation with only 100 left in my tank. Moreover, the staff is always talking and... More

We did two days of two tank dives with this dive centre and enjoyed the experience. It helps to be experienced because the dive briefings are minimal and they are a bit lax on safety compared to everywhere else we've dived. Laid back is the best way to describe it. However, the dives were very good with plentiful and varied... More

We did our open water certification here and loved it! Pichi was our instructor - super awesome guy. We went at the worst time of year for visibility (Dec/Jan) but we still loved our diving experience - especially the sharks we saw on every dive! Thank you Pichi for getting me down there - I will think of you every... More

Having been let down by a nearby diving center I went to Felive Diving. Pichi (Ignacio) is a very knowledgeable local guide that makes sure the newbies are well-taken care of and seasoned divers have some fun as well. Of course they could try to pay more attention to safety rules, but all and all Felipe providencia is a very... More

Felipe's is the place to dive on the island. They are professional, have top notch equipment, and are located in the perfect spot on the island. I went on two dives with them and both were shark dives. It had been 4 years since my last dive and I could not have felt more comfortable with their team of instructors.... More

Me and my girlfriend visited Providencia in July 2014 and decided to dive with Felipe's, having heard great things about him and his centre from locals and other travellers. Top things about our experience: - Great people. Felipe and his team were very professional, friendly and easy going. - Good dives, with very healthy corals and marine life (plenty of... More

Dived 2 dives here. When we arrived to the dive center in the morning no one hardly said hi to us neither were they interested of our certificates. No one talked to us on the boat to the sites and introduction of the first dive was minimal. On the dive, dive master killed several lion fishes to feed the sharks.... More
