I had never been diving before I came to diving planet with my dad and sister. The instructors were very friendly and great teachers and I had a blast seeing all the wildlife underwater. I highly recommend this company!

Even though I was only snorkeling, the team at Diving Planet made certain my experience was just as good as the diver's. There were only two of us, so we got great attention -- I even saw a manta ray! Lunch was provided on the island, 2 dives were included in the price. Not to be missed!

--Office staff for booking was great--no problems. --Speedboat ride to the islands is as described in other reviews----you share the boat with many other non-diving tourists and need to follow their scheduling, which affects your dive times. --the staff at the island spoke no English except for one dive leader. There was no info provided while we were waiting on... More

Hello Thanks por your comments. We are going to see wat is going on with the briefing because this can't happened. Regarding the other comments would like to make some comments: - Transportation to the islands is community because otherwise it would be very expensive and also use a boat for a small group of people is more polluting.

I did 12 dives in the beautiful Rosario Islands. This outfit is first class! The one hour boat ride from Cartegena is fast and exciting. The dive base resort is beautiful and clean. The dive masters are friendly and knowledgeable. They even provided me with large tanks at no extra charge. The dive sites are awesome and I didn't need... More

While the diving itself wasn't incredible (compared to the Galapagos or the Great Barrier Reef, etc.) it was a fun way to spend the day while staying in Cartagena. We got two dives in, and got to spend some time on Islas del Rosario. The staff was all super nice and helpful, and the owner was great as well. On... More

This was my first time diving, and while I was a bit worried, the Diving Planet team could not have been more helpful and experienced. I can not wait to dive again, and when I am back in Cartagena (amazing city) I will be sure to return to DP. The morning of the trip, Andres, one of the guides and... More
