The dive masters were fun, friendly and, more importantly, calm and reassuring, guiding us through all the necessary exercises in order to receive our padi open water certificate.
Great staff and chill little dive shop with lots of friendly dogs and a cute little baby with a big smile.

I recently had 4 dives with Aquarius, Simone the instructor did a great job explaing the exercises before the dive, all the Staff was awesome and very friendly.
We had a wonderful day with Aquarius; my son hasn´t scuba diving for 3 years so he was apprehensive about diving.

They made sure I was aware of all the activities during the day for my tours and that I brought proper clothing and any items I may need for my tours.
Jesus gave me great advice on several tours in Santa Marta and surrounding.

In short, Lisi is the best scuba instructor you could hope for; knowledgeable, patient, fun, professional, and with endless enthusiasm for sharing her love of diving with others.
Also the dive sites are better than expected, thanks to Johnny we saw seahorses, turtles, barracudas, squid, huge lobsters, shrimp, a crab, an octopus and tons of other stuff in just four dives on two days.

We took a medium but fun kayak ride around the visible peak of the bay only to be hit with a beautiful beach broken in two by small reefs & natural pools.
The kayak ride there is 30 minutes, and the way back is 60 minutes because the wind is pushing you back.
