My experience with Buceando Chile was my second scuba diving experience ever. My first in Mexico, I struggled with descending below a few meters, had trouble equalizing my ears, and had poor instruction. With Rodrigo as my instructor, he assured me that I would have the best instruction available and that he would help me along the way. I couldn't have been happier with their team located in Pichidangui, and after having completed the Open Water Diver course I hope to possible do my AOW and Rescue Diver courses with BuceandoChile soon! 10/10 Professional 10/10 Instruction 10/10 Lifetime Experience WOULD VERY MUCH RECOMMEND FOR ANYONE INTERESTED IN OBTAINING SCUBA SKILLS!!!

A friend and I had 2 awesome dives in Pichidangui with Rodrigo and his team. We came in during the off-season and had the entire place to ourselves. Water conditions were excellent and we had a great time. All of their rental gear is in GREAT condition, BC's, fins, and Wetsuits were all the best I've seen at any dive shop. We arranged for pickup in Santiago and return to our hotel after the dive. Every part of our full-day-trip was great, and the price was fair. I highly recommend diving with Rod and his team!

I had a great weekend with Buceando Chile - the team is extremely friendly, helpful and the operation is great. I strongly recommend Buceando Chile if you want to explore some dive spot next to Santiago de Chile. Thanks to Rodrigo, Luka, Carla and the rest of the team. Cheers
