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

We did our advanced open water certification at Cartagena Divers. We asked around and found that there was a big price difference between what they charged for the certification, and another top rated dive center we heard of from TripAdvisor as well. We were happy to pay a bit less, and were very comfortable with the staff from the get-go.... More

Cartagena Divers offered one of the best dive experiences I've had. Alberto and Isabela were very professional and I was very comfortable diving with them even though my Spanish is limited. The half-day trip with two dives was fantastic - beautiful coral, ship wrecks, etc. - and all for about US$100. Highly recommend diving with Cartagena Divers.

From the beginning on, I was very happy that I chose Cartagena Divers to go diving there. The organization was great, equipment was new and in perfect condition, briefings were good and detailed and above all the dive guides were enthusiastic about what they are doing. Two great dive sites with nice reefs, many fish, some I definitely wouldn't have... More

Had limited time in Cartagena but wanted to get in a dive. Cartagena divers was excellent - the equipment was in great shape and the whole team was knowledgeable and helpful. I took two friends along who had never dived before and they were quite patient in showing them the ropes! I also liked the fact that we did two... More
