People in Spondylus are really great and friendly. I did the open water with Spondylus and the instructor I had (Juan) was very patient = ) and I could see that all the instructors had the same good vibe. It was really important for me because I was a bit nervous... I fully recommend this center!

Everything was great except for Loki's pool. Máncora can't have many, if any other, swimming pools deep enough to properly practice in but the pool there has to be a health hazard. That isn't the fault of Spondylus though so I won't mark them down for it. The facilities otherwise are great, the instructors are great, the gear is top... More

The first time I went Scuba Diving with Spondylus was in July. It was my first time ever and I was quite scared, but Maurice, the instructor, was very patient and super chill! I had a lot of fun and they definitely convinced me to go Scuba Diving more often. I got my Open Water and decided to go back... More
