“Great Diving Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

There are loads of dive centres in the Taganga area but this one really stands out.
I walked in the day before I wanted to dive, had no problems getting on the boat the next morning. Really really great facilities, exellent equipment and good instructors.

You cant go wrong with these guys!

“Professional diveshop, highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I did my Tec 40 & Tec 45 PADI courses with Poseidon in Feb 2013. They are the only ones doing the more advanced courses such as Tech Diving and IDC in Taganga / colombian caribbean coast. Professional instructors (I had Max - a course director who was both pedagogic, calm and patient) and very friendly staff.
Them have a training pool for certain dive training and for beginners.They also have big boats where you can jump in from several spots and easily get out from. There is also space to move around and you don't have to sit on one spot the entire time your on the boat (as I saw was the case on many other diveboats around who were full to the rims). They regularly up videos on youtube, see PDCtaganga.
Equipment was well maintained (I used mainly technical, they have both Nitrox tanks, twin cylinders and regular tanks). Prices are resonable and you get what you pay for - high value!
Highly recommended!

“Got my PADI, what a fun experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

At Poseidon I´ve met great people and had only fun during the 3 day course.
Great facility, great instructors and good equipment.

Worth every cent of what you pay more... So don´t save a couple of bucks.
It is as good as expected and maybe even better!!!
