Wife and I did the snorkel trip to the Rosario Islands. It was a fun day trip and included 2 snorkel sessions and a typical lunch (I love that term). I read all the reviews about Diving planet and knew what to expect. I have 3 recommendations for travelers looking at this activity: 1) Do not expect German organization and... More

My adult son and daughter and I recently planned a trip to Cartagena, Colombia, and decided we would like to go scuba diving. None of us were certified, and although I had spent some time scuba diving 43 years ago, this would be the first time for my children. Through an internet search we decided to use Diving Planet, and... More

My husband and I are certified divers, and picked this place because of the ratings here and because it is affiliated with PADI. We had two great dives with a professional divemaster who showed us some lovely corals and sea creatures in the beautiful Islas de Rosario. She took care to ensure our safety, including switching out my tank when... More

My husband and I received our open water certifications by diving in lakes in the U.S. This was our first time diving in the ocean and to a depth of 60 feet, and we were definitely nervous, but all of our fears dissipated as soon as we got on the boat with Andres. Andres is funny and kind and above... More

This was my first experience of scuba diving and was initially very nervous... but it was wonderful - warm water, coral reefs, loads of fish (and a massive moray eel). The team were excellent - really knowledgeable, professional and made me feel safe throughout. Now I'm just wondering when I can go back to do my open water certification...

Very professional team, large variety of options available. I found the dive itself lacked of fauna, but this has little to do with Diving Planet. What I found admirable of this diving center is the activities they organise for disabled people and locals with scarce resources, whom they take for dives, which is something I had never seen done before....
