We went diving with Sharky twice. The equipment was fine with no major problems. The instructors were friendly and helpful. They took us to 2 different dive places both of which were great with loads of coral and fish. Recommend.

We have been SCAMMED badly by this company. We had two good dives (not seen anything special or spectacular though) with nice people from the dive shop, but they charged us double and did not (want to) pay us back after 6 months! They keep making up excuses while they could just send the money back by bank transfer. Very... More

Sharky's is owned by the brother of the guy running Sunset Hotel, so they had a shop right there. It was very convenient for me, and the diving was mostly very good. I do recommend making enough time to go to Providence though; the diving is better there

We decided to do a diving trip. Our hostel booked a trip at Sharky Dive Shop. It was the best decision, the personal was very friendly and explained every step very well. After a short lesson in the pool we went to the sea and had a fantastic dive at this great reef. Unfortunately we hadn't enough time for the... More

Learned the basics with Eduardo and Jainer and they we're the best instructors I could ask for my first ocean diving; everyone is very attentive and the cost benefit is very nice.

Johan, the instructor, was very detailed and knowledgable about this amazing sport. He enjoyed it and motivated us to also enjoy it and make it an awesome experience 30 ft under the ocean. The place was cool, transportation and snacks were included and very affordable. It was definitely worth every Peso. Also Johan takes amazing pic and makes you pose... More

Best dive shop in San Andres! My husband and I did three dives with Roger and Enrique, and our experience could not have been better. The location is perfect—literally right across the street from Nirvana reef, which is a gorgeous site. Whether you are an experienced diver or someone who just wants to try out the sport, this is the... More

They are well located on the southwest side of island and have a shop untie Centro. Roger the owner is very nice and they offered easy free pickups. I would only recommend this shop if you're experienced and only for one day. They are disorganized. We didn't Sign any waiver and the dive debrief was fairly general. I didn't really... More

This was the cheapest diving on San Andres Island ... maybe because they are not based right in San Andres beach front (they have a school in town and a base south of town). However, as they pick you up from your hotel and return you, this is not really an issue. As the low cost outfit, they did not... More
