Asking questions about setting up our dives was super easy and Hernando was quick to respond. Thomas and the rest of the crew were very professional, friendly and experienced divers. Equipment was top-notch. I expect we will be back to dive more with the Oceano crew.

After checking out online with my friend a few dive centres in Taganga, we decided to go to Oceano mainly because of the reviews on Tripadvisor. As soon as we got in, we were welcomed with a big smile and immediate assistance was offered to explain everything about the dives. We didn't doubt for a moment and booked the dive... More

The boat was a bit small, but they were so efficient in putting everything away and giving everybody their equipment that we barely noticed. The second dive had really strong currents but our instructor made sure... More

I did a fun dive with Oceano Scuba and was very pleased with the friendliness and professionalism of the team. Richard made me feel at ease instantly and his passion for diving certainly rubs off! No question was too tough to ask and I would definitely recommend everyone to dive with them.

We got our Open Water cert at Oceano last month and had a fantastic experience. Tomas was not only friendly, patient, and professional, but he challenged us to really learn. Now, we feel more than competent - confident in our diving skills and ready to learn more. Best decision of our trip.

We were especially surprised about the quality of the equipment and the sympathy of the staff. We dived twice in the morning and it was really an unforgettable experience. Richard was the dive master of our group and was always very helpful and paid attention to all security procedures even considering that we are two advanced divers. I highly recommend... More
