This is the place for diving around bocas del toro. Superb gear and incredibly good staff. Maybe not the best dive sites if you explored already some of the world but the passionated staff makes it worth your money!

We had one of our best diving experiences, 3 dives, including a night one. The guides have a lot of experience, "buena onda" and are willing to teach. We were impressed by Michel's buoyancy thecnique and Ginnete's knowledge and passion for ecology. Joaquín was also a great captain and guide. We valued that the dives lasted at least for an... More

We booked with Ginette and Michel from Canada and found the dive shop right alongside the main dock at Old Bank (Bastimentos town). Robertus (Holland) was our dive guide (previous owner) and he took four of us out for a two-tank dive trip. Brand new gear, excellent condition. Both dives were relatively shallow but we were underwater for over an... More

My sister and I just finished our Open Water Certificate with Arron and Iza. It was so great! At first I wasn't sure about taking the course. After some bad snorkling experience I was a bit insecure. But the way Arron handled things was very nice. He takes all the time you need, never goes on until you feel comfortable... More

I dove at Scuba 6 with Arron and It was really amazing, one of my most wonderful dives. Arron was really professional, very attentive to the group members - the kind of diver that really inspires you! he took us to some beautiful sites, we saw lots of colorful corals and some great animals. I had an amazing experience.
