Can't recommend these guys enough. Great bunch, everyone from the people at the office to my instructor and divemaster were friendly, knowledgable and most importantly put me at ease. I completed my PADI certification with Diving Planet, I did the Open Referral at home and completed my 4 open water dives with Juan (instructor). My husband was already certified and... More

The Diving Planet team is highly professional in teaching how to dive (in theory and in practice). The whole course was top organized and everything was very well explained. The most important for me: I felt safe all the time. Alltogether: an unforgettable experience and a MUST!!!

Super helpful manager Andres help us to organise everything, diving there is beautiful, with lots of coral and beautiful fishes, with clear water a stark contrast to the dark water in cartagena. Juan my PADi instructor is helpful and experienced, overall great day out!

What a great experience! We made a short term decision to go diving when we were in cartagena. We completed the 4 day padi course on the isla del rosario. Andrés organised everything for us and we could concentrate on diving. The theory hours were explained in perfect English and we were well prepared for the test. The diving instructor... More

We went out for 2 dives and one of our friends wasn't comfortable with the snorkeling. Our main guide, Christian, spent time with him outside the boat and in the hotel pool where we... More

Our day trip was amazing, thank you to Planet Diving. We weren't certified to dive so we took the snorkeling trip to 2 different locations. Both were equally amazing with the amount and beauty of the sea life. Definitely one of the best highlights to our vacation in Cartagena. The resort where diving center is based was beautiful and the... More

My boyfriend and I did 2 dives with Diving Planet on May 24 and the whole experience was great. We met at the dive office in town and were driven to the marina and provided exact details on what to expect prior to our 1 hour boat ride to the Islas del Rosario. The dive boat launches from Hotel Majagua... More

Diving planet crew and staff were amazing. We had a great boat trip out to the islands. The weather was overcast so the water was a little stirred up on the first immersion. The second immersion was much clearer with much more coral. Overall an awesome trip and we'll worth everything we paid. We enjoyed it. Will do it again.... More
