BUZOS DE BARU dive center Baru is a PADI RESORT over 15 years continuous operation in the city, positioned as one of the best diving schools Cartagena.

We have qualified PADI instructors and trained staff for teaching and Guidance diving, we like to make long dives and go to the most beautiful places possible for each day depending on the climate in the area.

We will see a great variety of fauna and flora, the temperature of the water is very nice and comfortable you don’t even need a wetsuit, the visibility is excellent almost all year long and we have more than 30 dive spots and types of dives that you can choose from.

The dives are characterized for the beauty of the coral, the great visibility and the great variety of life you will see. The coral is in great shape and there are hundreds of small but beautiful reef fish just waiting to be admired by you, so what are you waiting for, come down and visit us and let the adventure begin.

Our dive leaders always carry under water digital cameras and the pictures are included in the dive plan.

The whole team of Buzos de Baru is great! They are very professional, service oriented and friendly. The equipments they have are in perfect conditions which made the dive feel safe from the very beginning. The diving site itself wasn't all that nice (for an experienced diver), but it was a good day altogether! The dive shop is definitely highly... More

I did my OW course in late June with Buzos de Baru and had a great experience. The team is amazing both as trainers and diving partners. I went back to Cartagena in mid July and went diving again with them. I had a lot of fun! It just became a "must do" every time I visit Cartagena.

Did a 3 tank dive w/ Buzos de Baru in early April, and I enjoyed the experience. I also appreciated Juan's honesty when he didn't recommend the rest of my family to snorkel with us while I was diving that day as the conditions were sub-optimal (indeed, it was the right call). The 3 dives were very interesting, including the... More

Went diving with Buzos de Baru last week and had an amazing experience. They were extremely organized and had 1 dive master per 4 divers. You feel very safe and they were extremely attentive to people who run low on air early. Sending a dive master up with those folks and taking the rest of the group on a longer... More

Really good morning of diving, beautiful scenery, interesting mix of underwater wildlife and a friendly and helpful dive staff. Well organised. Quick and efficient gearing up, good quality dive equipment (the wet-suits seemed brand new), quickly on the boat and then a short fast boat ride to the dive area. First dive site had some good reefs (sting rays, lion... More

We went as a couple we were only three with one instructor (the group can be for maximum for one instructor). One of us never did it before so we trained during one hour in the swimming pool of the hotel with the gear to get comfortable with it. Meeting at 6:45am at the hotel and after we went around...

I completed my Open Water Certification and it was great! The staff was very kind and helpful. I learned a lot and I experienced wonderful immersions in Baru. Highly recommended and I hope to dive many more times with Juan, Favio and Santiago.
