Mega nettes Team (insbesondere Tony, der sich viel Zeit genommen hat), professionelle Anleitung (Open water, advanced). Alles top gelaufen, zu einem mehr als fairen Preis. Klare Empfehlung! Nice Team (especially Tony who was always concerned that everything met everyone’s expectations). Very professional and more than a fair price. Can recommend this Diving School! 5/5*

I made a total of 20 dives with Panama Dive School, and couldn’t recommend enough this shop. I made my Advanced + fun dives there, while my girlfriend had her Open Water. First of all, the location and aspect of the shop itself : Tony created a little slice of paradise. The shop is very nice, on a beach front with crystal clear water, and very nice vibes. This is a side aspect but the shop is sharing its space with a very good restaurant, which allows you to have delicious fish burgers on site after your dive. The boat isn’t big, which makes the dive groups at human size and never too busy for a more relaxed and focused diving. But most of all, the owners are both professional and very, very nice people. Tony is just great, very helpful, reactive on WhatsApp (the most reactive dive owner I met so far !) and makes his prices cheaper than any other shops in the whole country, which is not a small deal. I wanted to improve my photography skills and the crew made everything to make that possible, taking their time above and under water for the gear preparation, etc. My girlfriend had her Open Water and I was here to see her class : she is an amazing dive instructor, very patient, precise and human. The way she teaches the Open was impressively good. Also she is both able to teach in English and Spanish. Since most dive sites are rather shallow and without any current, it is a great place to learn diving. Regarding the dive sites, there are very good wrecks. The visibility wasn’t very good but I went during the rainy season, so can’t tell for the rest of the time. Oh, and the boat’s captain, Fernando, is also such a funny and cool guy :D

I am a new diver and spent one month in Bocas with my husband. Tony, Lana and the team at Panama Dive School were great! We dove several times and each dive was great, well managed, safe! Thanks to Capt Fernando for keeping everyone safe. This should be your choice when diving in Bocas. Variety - day, night, caves

My son and I had a perfect day in the water with Panama Dive School. Excellent gear, knowledgable crew and a great couple of dives. I recommend Panama Dive School to anyone wanting to get certified or do some fun dives if traveling through Bocas. A+.

The best dive school around, for sure! Lana and Tony are great people! We did our open water with them for 3 days and were so glad to do it here. Lana is a very good and patient teacher who gives you a safe feeling while learning to dive. Couldn't had wished for a better experience!
