The center has a lovely staff, including very professional instructors with excellent English, and everything was done as promised and according to the required safety codes. Furthermore, during the low season the center has wonderful projects with children who have been victims of the war, and other groups in need.

Firstly the staff were wonderful, even with our little spanish they were friendly and helpful. We wanted to do x2 dives and stay a night on the rosario islands. Diving planet organised it all for us. The dive was organised well, and the equipment and lunch on the island all included. I can't recommend them enough! :)

I really felt safe and confident with this team of people. They are so professional in their job. I enjoyed my snorkeling led by Andres and learning about coral and fish...Best instructor ever heheh... The place is amazing, blue water and beautiful sights. If you are beginner this is the best choice you can make.

Thanks for your comments. Next time, you must try Scuba Diving. If you enjoy de beauty of the corals from the surface, can you imagine how beautiful and exiting is going to be if you can stay longer under the water? Next time you can prove a Discover Scuba Diving Program, or a full Open Water Diver Course and get... More

Let me start out by saying that my wife and I had a wonderful time in each aspect of this trip. Everyone on the staff was friendly and helpful. We called the day before our trip and sent them a picture of my diving certification (c-card) via phone so we could hold off going to the office downtown until the... More

Great experience for uncertified/beginner divers (I had never been before). Diving Planet -- located within the Walled City -- will drive you to the boat that brings you to the island, which is about an hour and 15 minutes away from Cartagena. Our group was small (4-6 people), so each duo had an instructor designated to them to the entire... More

I can highly recommend Diving Planet in Cartagena if you are a beginner. Went on a day tour with them ( transport, two dives, equipment and lunch included) and I really enjoyed my day with them. I felt really safe all the time and during the dive especially since I am a beginner so it was important for me and... More

Diving Planet and the owner, Andres, were very easy to work with and delivered on a great day of diving. It was exactly as described and there were no surprises. Everyone was professional and friendly. 45-60 min boat ride each way to Islas de Rosario was included in price, as well as a good lunch and transfer to/from the dive... More

I really enjoyed my day trip with diving planet. Excellent dive guides - very professional and pleasant! Transportation to and from the dive shop to the harbor was included. Took a speed boat to the Rosario islands where we did 2 dives.

We took a day trip with three divers and two snorkelers. We made arrangements at their city office inside the old city. The next morning Diving Planet arranged transportation from Cartagena city center to their location at a hotel on Isla Grande (Islas Rosarios). This is nice because you go on a fast boat directly to the hotel, not the... More
