We visited their office to book a diving trip. From the moment we walked in the door we felt like we were at home with friends. Isi and Alberto, her husband were just so friendly and welcoming. Although they were not going out on a trip on the day we wanted, their warm and endearing nature completely erased the disappointment.... More

I decided to take some time in my Colombian trip to do my OpenWater diving certification, and after reading the bundle of positive reviews about Cartagena Divers, I decided to go with them... and definitely did not regret one second! Cartagena Divers are extremely professional, the team is SO friendly and the equipment was A+. About the OpenWater certification, my... More

I couldn't be happier with my experience diving with these guys. I was rather disappointed of diving in Cartagena after a very poor experience with another company last month so I didn't get my hopes up for this time. I told the staff my experience and was not only surprised but also pleased by the time we arrived to the... More

Isabel and Alejandro operate a wam and professional dive shop conveniently located within the walled city of Cartagena. From the first few emails we exchanged, I felt confident that my boyfriend and I would be kept safe while having fun under the sea. We enrolled in a two day Advanced Open Water course in order to further our diving options.... More

I am a certified Padi OWD, and on March 10, 2015 did a dive with a very friendly team of Cartagena Divers. The first immersion was very good, unfortunately the second was plenty of pitfalls. Due to some anxiety, I ran out of air faster that the rest of the group, so I advise the DM when I had 1000... More

First of all we would like to thank you for your feedback. Please accept our apologies, we are sorry about that situation. The dives and the depths in the area are very safe and calm. In your case our mistake was not to have told the instructor assistant to surface with you when you indicated the 500 psi. We usually... More

Hi, it was my first dive I made with Cartagena Divers and I enjoyed it entirely. The organisation as well as instruction staff were very nice and competent, the gear was in good shape and the diving spot incredible. I did the "minicurso": meeting at Cartagena Divers office at 7 a.m., back in the city at about 12.30 p.m., booked... More

Having worked as a dive master I know what to expect from a dive shop and unfortunately Cartagena Divers fell short on a couple of essential points. Firstly, they forgot our wetsuits, one instructor kindly loaned my friend his for the dives but I had a couple of pretty chilly dives. Secondly, on the first dive the captain anchored directly...

Went there for a couple of dives after reading the reviews. The guides r nice and friendly. And the office is clean and tidy. But what amazed me the most was top of the line equipment, big and comfortable boat that is designed for scuba diving with a ladder and benches for the air tanks. Very professional and user friendly.... More

This is hands down the best dive shop in Cartagena. The owners are totally professional and have the safety of their clients as there number one priority. This is the second season diving with Issa and Alberto. I have seen there business grow and flourish due to the relationships the make with the community and there in depth knowledge of... More
