We took the three day open water certification course at Poseidon Dive Center. Max was very helpful from the get-go by responding to questions we had before arriving on Skype, which they keep open at the center as a quick way to communicate from afar. The staff is very friendly and warm, and the center is equipped with top notch equipment to make sure your dive experience is safe and comfortable. We had Juan as our instructor and really enjoyed his knowledge and expertise, having been a diver for over twenty years. His sense of humor and teaching style were also wonderful. He explained everything so well and was very patient with us. Many Tanganga residents recommended their center and we felt it was a great choice for our first diving experience.

Was a wonderful time with Poseidon Dive Center. The boat is definitely the best in Taganga, I did my Open Water PADI Course and was excellent. So responsible the instructor and a very good methodology, highly recommended. Wait for me for the advanced in July.

There are loads of dive centres in the Taganga area but this one really stands out.
I walked in the day before I wanted to dive, had no problems getting on the boat the next morning. Really really great facilities, exellent equipment and good instructors.

You cant go wrong with these guys!

I did my Tec 40 & Tec 45 PADI courses with Poseidon in Feb 2013. They are the only ones doing the more advanced courses such as Tech Diving and IDC in Taganga / colombian caribbean coast. Professional instructors (I had Max - a course director who was both pedagogic, calm and patient) and very friendly staff.
Them have a training pool for certain dive training and for beginners.They also have big boats where you can jump in from several spots and easily get out from. There is also space to move around and you don't have to sit on one spot the entire time your on the boat (as I saw was the case on many other diveboats around who were full to the rims). They regularly up videos on youtube, see PDCtaganga.
Equipment was well maintained (I used mainly technical, they have both Nitrox tanks, twin cylinders and regular tanks). Prices are resonable and you get what you pay for - high value!
Highly recommended!
