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

I wasn't expecting much of the diving, having read some slightly negative reviews, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The sea garden plants in the first location were stunning, and we were lucky enough to do the wreck dive second; plus there was plenty of life on both dives and visibility was great. There was a divemaster for each pair... More

Cartagena divers has its own boat, carry a real group of divers, took time for us to enjoy the dive and the trip, was not the most expensive diving in Cartagena, offered us good sandwiches and water, and the diving was nice going down and inside the sunken ship (only Advanced divers: very safe). Stop on the way to swim... More

The staff at Cartagena Divers is very friendly and professional. A typical package for a certified diver includes two dives at Baru Island, a small lunch and transportation to and from the shop. We were the only boat at the dive location, which made for a relaxing uncluttered diving experience. The second dive was especially interesting ad it included two... More

I went to Cartagena with my girlfriend to get my basic diving certification (called Open Water). The people are cheerful and professional. In contrast to other dive shops, the dives are programmed for the early morning (7am sharp at the shop). Waking up that early during my vacation was little bit of a pain, but at the end I realized...
