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

Professional dive center with friendly staff and excellent dive equipment. The tour from Panama City was very well organised and we were able to see a little bit of the country. We were very well taken care of, so it was no problem to stop at a supermarket on the return way and get some fresh fruits. The owner was... More

This was my first time diving outside the US and overall it was a great experience. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The dive sites were incredible and the visibility was exceptional (this was end of April). The communication prior to my arrival was a little sketchy. It was a little tough to get detailed information about the dive sites... More

Great diving with excellent instructor 1.5 hours from panama city. Everything was very well organized and the instructor was great - took a lot of time to explain everything. Diving was good, but i am sure there are better dive sites (but not as close to panama city) Felt very safe and secure. i can highly recommend it.

I was in Panama mostly for work, but took the opportunity to scuba dive a couple of days just before. Discussions on TA forums brought me to Scuba Panama. While I considered staying there, I finally decided to stay at Casa Congo (see review there) and believe it was a great idea as the diving club is far from everything.... More
