“Feel at one of the film of Jacques Cousteau!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Well, if you're on vacation in San Andres, you can not miss this experience!.
West Point is close to San Luis, from you will get less than 10 minutes, crossing the other side of the island, which is completely different. The attention is quite good, people are friendly and respect the established schedules. Before the diving you get a little video course of what happens under water, as well as warnings about what we can feel because pressure changes in our ears. They also instruct you on how to communicate by signs under water and what to do if they experience any hassles.
Once under water it seems you are in another planet! your movements are slow and paused. The blue color is stunning and you can see the fish come from far away thanks to the clarity of water.
At all times we were accompanied by a diver wearing oxygen tank and auxiliary nozzles for each pair of customers (we dive 6 in total!) who also is responsible for taking the pictures and videos (it is forbidden to dive with cameras to customers) .
The additional cost of the photos and the video is worth, is unforgettable!
Dive!

“AquaNautas under water walking activity in San Andres Islands”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2008

I am not sure if anyone is aware of this great unique kind of activity. It is an under water walking activity called AquaNautas in San Andres Islands Colombia.
I experienced one of the best 30 minutes of my life, walking on the sea floor of San Andres beautiful ocean with a helmet that has continuouse air supply. Saw all kinds of fish including Sting rays and Baracudas just a few feet from my sight! It was a very nice and emotional experience. You can even feed the fish.

The price is very reasonable. $45 US and you can also buy a cd with about 20 pictures and a couple of videos for another $40.

I will definitely go to San Anres Islands again on my next trip in 2009 and will definitely book another Aqua Nautas activity.
