Max and his team are absolutely top notch. I came to do my padi open water diver. As an absolute beginner I had a lot of fun learning the basics of scuba diving while feeling (and being!) a hundred percent safe the whole time. I stayed to get my advanced open water diver certification right away.
Thank you Max, thank you Felipe (best instructor in this galaxy!) for showing me the world under the sea!

We absolutely loved our diving experience at Poseidon! We did a refresher course with Tom, who was an excellent teacher. The entire time, he always made us feel safe and at ease. The diving centre has their own pool, so we started off practising our skills there before going for two dives.

The dive sites were great- we were far from other groups and saw different types of coral and plenty of tropical fish. We crossed another boat of divers who were packed in like sardines and were glad that we had paid more to get the experience of a small group (just us 2 and Tom, and another instructor with his student on our boat) in great diving locations.

There was no time wasted, everything was ready to go for us and well organized. Communication to book our dives with Max was easy and quick too.

We wish we had more time in Taganga to go on a few more dives. Absolutely recommend Poseidon!

Hello and thanks for this gutsy review. It makes ous very proud that the diving with us was your personal highlight on this trip. And yes it makes everything much more easier if there is an on site pool avaliable. Specially afterwards the dives like everybody including the Instructor is more relaxed as everybody knows what to do, which is the most important so all are chilling under water and observing the beauty of the underwater world . Diving should also be a social activity but still you should have some room to move, but if boats are packed very difficult. We have an different focus of service for our divers. And may be you think to come back to do some more dives, will be here FROM DIVERS FOR DIVERS POSEIDON DIVE CENTER

Excellent dive center!

My wife and me have been to Poseidon for learning how do dive and doing our certificates (Open water, advances, enriched air).
Tom was our trainer for the 5 days and i cannot think of one thing he could do better.
Everyone else was very nice, helpful and kind.

After the first day doing basic training in the pool in the dive center we went for 9 dives in the next 4 days (including one in the night, which was very interesting and a great experience). We started at 8 in the morning, did a short briefing (including coffee) and got our stuff together and went to the boat. The stuff itself was brought there by jeep so that we did not have to carry it. The very comforting and experienced boat crew brought us out to our diving spots were after another briefing by Tom we went down for diving. Tom explained everything in a very calm, easy and patient way, so that no questions remained. He was a safe guide under water and never showed any sign of not being in control of everything around him whatever happened, so that we felt as safe as one can feel.
After each dive we were transferred to another spot by the boat while getting some small food and tea if wanted and were after the last dive of the day brought back to Tanganga harbor from where it is a 3 minute walk to the dive center. Here after cleaning and preparing the stuff for the next day there was a short debriefing of the day and we finished at about 2 PM.

Tom as well as the other guides talk very good english and (as far as i can tell) very good spanish. Max comes from Germany and is by that even three-languaged.

The equipment in the dive center is (as far as i can tell) of good quality and everything which was required was present.

We can absolutely recommend the Poseidon Dive Center as a perfect place to go for diving or learn how to dive.

Hello thanks for extendet and detailled comment here. We try to teach our courses with the highest professional level but also in a relaxed and funny way and seems we have found a great way so that all are fully satisfied. Now lets see when you go diving the next time where you can spend more time under water due to your Nitrox certification. Again we hope you learned a lot and you can apply all your new skills in the future, and may be you come back to dive with us. Who knows ? FROM DIVERS FOR DIVERS POSEIDON DIVE CENTER

It’s sometimes hard to tell what you are going to get when you set up diving via email in a foreign (to me) country. With Max & Poseidon it was super easy and exactly what I was hoping for. Did a couple of really great drift dives at Isla Aguja with Nitrox. Crew was great. I wish I had more than a day in Santa Marta as I would absolutely keep diving with Poseidon.

Hello thks for your comment here and sounds like you had a gutsy day diving with us. The same happens to us when we dive in vacations, its hard to tell what to expect from a dive operation setting up via Internet. A lot of times we have been dissapointed. So it looks like that our customer approach is not too bad. And now yo have a new destinations for net time vacations. FROM DIVERS FOR DIVERS POSEIDON DIVE CENTER

I went diving with Poseidon on October 9, 2022. LOVED this experience. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and my divemaster (Duber) gave clear site debriefings and did an awesome job leading the dive. The snack provided was delicious as well. As someone who frequently travels and dives, I can honestly say Posiedon are among my favorite shops to dive with. When I'm ready to begin tec diving, this is the shop I want to learn from!

In 2001 visited Poseidon for the first time for my OW, in 2006 went back for AOW, and didn't hesitate nor looked around when decided for further dive training in Sept/2022, yes a few years later.

My wife and I decided to make AOW (for her) and Rescue (for me), and as expected were greeted by professional trainers at the same location.

Lots of new equipment, roomy boat and personalized training, allowed us to enjoy each dive.

Special thanks to Max, Tom and Pipe, and for the rest of the staff for making this a great and memorable experience.
