Did my Open Water Course with Poseidon whilst staying in Taganga for a few days. The whole crew is very professional, friendly and entertaining. Also, they were very accommodating in re-scheduling the course based on my own change in plans. Would highly recommend!

I did two fun dives, and then did the PADI Buoyancy specialty course a couple of days later. Not the cheapest dive shop in town but they have top equipment and boats, fabulous instructors and divemasters, are thorough in their preparation, and are very safety-conscious.More
