My partner and I were extremely pleased with every aspect of our experience with Cartagena Divers. The ship and equipment were in excellent shape, and the staff was incredibly friendly. We compared their mini-course with a competitor within the walled city and went with Cartagena Divers for three reasons: First, you get one additional dive as part of the mini-course.... More

I had a wonderful time. They were very accommodating and professional. Prices were very reasonable for what you get. They took us out about 20 minutes outside of Cartagena to two wonderful spots, one was a shipwreck! I saw tons of bright fish, even a jellyfish. I had a great time as it was a highlight of my trip.

As many below me have said, Cartagena Divers was very professional. They made you always feel safe, and were good guides underwater. As an American, the dives are cheap (two dives for about $80!) The dive trip out to the island of Barú was beautiful, with awesome wreck diving. I will say the coral is damaged around these islands from... More

I dived for 3 months with Cartagena Divers to obtain my Divemaster and it was just perfect! The courses were very serious with high quality equipments (tanks, jackets, regulators, boat...) and a beautiful school/shop. All of this shows the passion for scubadiving of Isabela and Alberto, the owners of the center. The dive sites are gorgeous, with a lot of... More

We made three dives with Cartagena Divers out of the Punta Faro hotel. Javier was a great dive instructor and leader. It had been a while since we dove, so we took a refresher before heading out. Of all the dives my husband and I have been on over the years, Javier (new to Punta Faro), was the best instructor... More

I just got my PADI Open Water Diver license at Cartagena Divers. I have never done Scuba diving befre, so this was my first experience of this kind. So what can I say about this diving school? It is owned and run by a colombian family, they are really nice people to spend time with and also absolutely professional. The... More

We booked a dive with Cartagena Divers with the urging of a relative who had already booked a dive with them while on a cruise. First off, English is (obviously) not their first language, so communication was difficult through E-mail. This isn't a knock against them, just know this going in. I had told them I wanted to go along... More

After being let down at the last moment by Cartagena divers who didn't have the numbers to make it worth their while (!) they arranged for us to dive with diving planet - we're glad they did! We were reticent that being number 1 gave it all the makings of an over priced on a conveyor belt diving resort -... More
