We very much enjoyed our dive with Poseidon dive Center. The Equipment was very good and the owner and dive Instrucor were very Open and friendly. We arrived at the dive Center very spontanously and were able to get Instruktions/ course (very Helpful) straight away and were able to dive at the same day. We went on a very nice... More

Excellent dive center. Very professional staff, well maintained equipment and high security standards. I enjoyed my two dives a lot and would always come back to the dive center. Can highly recommend it!!!! Best of all: They take pictures for free which you can download afterwards for free from facebook :)

I did the Open Water Diver with Max and team. It was a great experience, everybody was very professional and safety paramount, but at the same time the mood was relaxed and a lot of joking around. I'd done more dives if I had more time.

POSEIDON is top class. great facilities & well-maintained equipment. Staff are very professional and friendly, easy-going. No shortcuts on safety here! They also have the most comfortable and safe boat, which is important when you want to get to those sites that other dive centres can't get to. Captains are very good at finding the day's most suitable diving spots... More

Well-managed and excellent dive center. I think it's always best to ask divemasters and instructors about the school, because they usually change centers often. The four I spoke with were all very enthusiastic about working here. - They have great equipment, all sizes available. - There are only two dive centers allowed in tayrona national park (after the island). This... More
