Open Water Dive course with Cartagena Divers: the owners and staff are spectacular - polite, friendly, helpful and fun. The dives are great - pretty locations near Isla Barú. Daniel (Dive Master) is patient and positive in the water. The written test is difficult but vital; Cartagena Divers help you learn! I am now certified, confident, and ready to dive.... More

The guides were awesome and made the trip great, their briefings were spot on. Super nice people to deal with an so caring and... More

I went with my cousin for a dive. We were in Bahía Cartagena near Isla de Tierra Bomba. The water was so clear and John, our guide was very patient and took a lot of pictures. Everybody was very cool and nice. I had a blast. Definitely go!

Reasonable rates and professional staff... Great combination for a day of diving. John was my dive master and trip leader and we had a great time on and under the water. The staff was professional and courteous on the trip and visited their dive shop after the trip. Nice spot in the old city and well stocked for any equipment... More

My partner and I were extremely pleased with every aspect of our experience with Cartagena Divers. The ship and equipment were in excellent shape, and the staff was incredibly friendly. We compared their mini-course with a competitor within the walled city and went with Cartagena Divers for three reasons: First, you get one additional dive as part of the mini-course.... More

I had a wonderful time. They were very accommodating and professional. Prices were very reasonable for what you get. They took us out about 20 minutes outside of Cartagena to two wonderful spots, one was a shipwreck! I saw tons of bright fish, even a jellyfish. I had a great time as it was a highlight of my trip.

As many below me have said, Cartagena Divers was very professional. They made you always feel safe, and were good guides underwater. As an American, the dives are cheap (two dives for about $80!) The dive trip out to the island of Barú was beautiful, with awesome wreck diving. I will say the coral is damaged around these islands from... More

I dived for 3 months with Cartagena Divers to obtain my Divemaster and it was just perfect! The courses were very serious with high quality equipments (tanks, jackets, regulators, boat...) and a beautiful school/shop. All of this shows the passion for scubadiving of Isabela and Alberto, the owners of the center. The dive sites are gorgeous, with a lot of... More

We made three dives with Cartagena Divers out of the Punta Faro hotel. Javier was a great dive instructor and leader. It had been a while since we dove, so we took a refresher before heading out.
