Christian, our dive guide, was very knowledgeable and took us on two great dives. The water was very clear and flat for the early morning dive. There was plenty of fish - lobster, puffer fish, shrimp, parrot fish, clown fish, sea worms. Unfortunately, the weather did not allow us to dive the plane wreck. :-(

Scuba Panama ranks as my single worst dive experience in hundreds of dives all over the world. If you dive with them, make sure your DAN insurance is current and don't count on the divemaster our boat captain for anything.

Great service but underwhelming diving experience. Dive operation and dive master did their best but weather conditions led to marginal diving. Recent rains caused visibility issues and unfavorable currents at dive sites.

I had not heard of Panama diving and now I think I know why. Signing up was easy and flexible but the admin people are not terribly helpful or knowledgable. The dive masters were adequate but uninterested in guiding. Mostly it seemed they were there to hunt for lion fish. Which - don't get me wrong - is super important... More

Me and my boyfriend wanted to dive, hadn't really heard of diving in Panama, but found this outfit. They picked us up at hotel in Panama City, and we enjoyed great country side views. Rafael was our dive master and driver and was friendly, and knowledge, and flexible to our schedule. Went to two separate dive sites, and the reef... More

Did 2 dives with Scuba Panama, to two quite good dive sites. My biggest concern was to total lack of English speaking staff. If you speak Spanish or have Spanish speakers with you who can translate you will be fine, but just something to be aware of. I felt the dive instructions and guidance could be improved, but the rental... More

My wife and I went to Panama in order to dive two oceans in one day. We looked at a few dive shops - it was very expensive but seemed to be about the same everywhere - and settled on Scuba Panama because they seemed the most professional. We weren't disappointed. We brought our own masks, regulators, and computers but... More

We booked the "Two Oceans in One Day" tour, but went back to the hotel after the first dive. I went with my adult son and daughter. I am a Stress & Rescue certified diver with over 300 dives all over the world so I know that each and every diver is responsible for his/her own equipment and his/her own... More

I booked by going to their website and filling out the contact form while in the USA. They were awesome about giving me options, being very specific about costs, telling me about other groups booking so I could get a group discount, how long the drive was and pickups. I chose the Caribbean dives and it was about 1 to... More
