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

I went snorkeling with this group but others in our boat all went diving. Felt safe with this group. All staff were friendly and personable. Sturdy boat and good drivers. Went to Baru instead of Rosario Islands but given the negative environmental impact diving can have, preserving the habitat of the Rosario Islands is a positive thing. Saw lots of... More

We had a good experience with Cartagena Divers, but it was a bit too informal for us. The staff was friendly and fairly communicative over e-mail in advance of the dive. We met them at the pier in the morning, showed our PADI certification, and boarded the (very crowded) boat. However, when we boarded, there was no instruction or overview... More

We decided we wanted to go on a last minute dive trip while we were in Cartagena. Based on the reviews on TA, we decided to go with Cartagena divers. The reviews did not lie. The CD staff was incredibly friendly and professional. You could tell as soon as you stopped into the shop they knew exactly what they were... More

After a series of emails planning our diving day for four people, we dutifully sat waiting for our scheduled 7:10am condo pickup. Once 7:30 passed I suspected we were in trouble. Ironically I had suggested we take a cab in but they were wanting to pick us up. Suffice it to say that once I found a phone I learned... More

It was my first time scuba diving. I was impressed by the other reviews on TA. My expectations were met and exceeded when I met Isa and Albert at the shop in la Ciudad Amurallada. The following day they picked me up at 7:15 am sharp at my hotel (Cartagena Plaza). I was placed in a group of four, one... More

We did two dives with CD off Isla Baru. The gear was all top notch Cressi and ScubaPro, the dive masters were great and even though we don't speak Spanish we were lucky to have two American masters on board to help us out. We dived on a great bomby and saw a large mora crab, heaps of large trevaly,... More

I was lucky to have found Doug Batista, formerly from Pennsylvania who was our tour guide the entire day we spent in Cartagena. He is a gentleman and now lives in Cartagena. Please write him in advance and he'll meet you at the ship. We spent the entire day with him for $100.00. Tell him where you want to go... More

I went there as it was one of 2 PADI listed shops. Isa answered the phone and it was an immediate sense of great customer service and a reputable shop. I was going to dive once (2 tanks) but end up doing it 2 days in a row. Their boat equipment and crew are great. There are great sites, and... More
