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

This afternoon, after waiting over 20 years, my husband finally got his PADI SCUBA certification from Diving Planet in Cartagena, Colombia. Like a mother hen, I was a little apprehensive about letting "just anyone" handle the business of getting the love of my life SCUBA certified, but the Diving Planet met and exceeded my expectations! I had a feeling this... More

You only get your first SCUBA certification once in a lifetime. I am so glad I got mine from Andres and the team at Dive Planet! My wife is certified and I have been waiting years to follow. We chose Dive Planet for my certification and my wife took a refresher course. I was fortunate to get Andres as my... More

This is a AAA+ top notch 5***** dive operation ! Very professional doesn't come close to describing this place. Do not go through any tour agency for your diving - come directly here and deal with them - they are just top notch. The guide I went with was the most professional I've ever seen. They take customer service to... More

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.
