myself and 3 friends decided after a week of reef diving in santa catalina it would be a great experience to do a wreck dive. We contacted scuba panama and inquired whether they did the wreck dive and whether it was ok to do it on an open water certificate. They advised us that this was fine. We decided to... More

I found Scuba Panama on Trip Advisor and reached out by email prior to a recent trip. The staff got right back to me and was responsive regularly as I planned our outting. Seems basic but other outfitters in Panama weren't as professional. They made sure we knew where we were going and what we needed. Prices were clear and... More

Very good experience. Victor from Panama Star vacations made all of the arrangements for us so i cant say what the communication was like. My son was finishing off his 4 open water dives for his padi certification and had Christian as an instructor, very professional, extremely friendly and very good English. The only reason we gave it a 4... More

We sent numerous emails, and called them numerous times to get price information, and make reservations. It took days for them to reply to our emails, and when we FINALLY got ahold of somebody on the... More

This is an all day tour. The Scuba Panama team picked me up around 7:30am at my hotel. We picked up a few other divers then headed over to the Pacific dive site. It was great to see all of the boats waiting to enter the canals while we traveled by boat to the Pacific dive site. Unfortunately, visibility is... More

This all day scuba excursion was one of the first things I booked when I arrived in Panama City. Edwin, the driver was 15 minutes early picking me up in the morning from the front door of my building in a comfortable van with air conditioning. He was professional and friendly and also ended up being my dive partner later... More

The driver arrived at our hotel in Panama City promptly and was very nice. The drive was comfortable and the driver drove much better than the taxi driver's we've experienced thus far. We arrived in Portobelo where the staff was excellent. The rental equipment was in really good shape and the dive master was very helpful and patient. I did... More

I enjoyed the Pacific side more then the Atlantic mainly because the wildlife was not something I usually see. My dive buddy was opposite. The service was excellent and they were really concerned about our comfort. 40 minute dive on the Pacific side and 60 for 60 on the Atlantic. Can't complain, cause a day of diving, especially in bath... More
