I had not been diving in 2 years and was a little nervous. Felipe and Alex were terrific and very patient with me!!! They go through setting up your equipment, making sure the seals are good and enduring you have not air leaks. You then carry your equipment to the boat and they help you get it on board. The...

We went directly to Felipe's dive shop because they are the reference and the biggest one in the island. I saw different opinions here saying they are good and bad. Wanted to try. We dove for 3 days, 6 tanks. When you arrive in the first day they are not friendly at all, you have to stay more and then... More

What a great dive. Big Filipa was great, very nice bloke. We were in a group of four all different abilities and he made sure that everyone was safe without making a big deal of it. One of our group ran out of air and Filipa's reaction time and concern was great, he knew exactly what was going on. He... More

Diving in Providencia is an amazing experience as it is probably one of the most beautiful location on earth to admire marine life. I did my advance certification with Felipe diving centre, everything was fine except that once I finished the session in almost emergency situation with only 100 left in my tank. Moreover, the staff is always talking and... More

If you really want to taste the flavor of the Island and have a wonderful diving experience with a marvelous person (Felipe), you must book your divings with Felipe Diving Center. More than highly recommended!

We did two days of two tank dives with this dive centre and enjoyed the experience. It helps to be experienced because the dive briefings are minimal and they are a bit lax on safety compared to everywhere else we've dived. Laid back is the best way to describe it. However, the dives were very good with plentiful and varied... More

We did our open water certification here and loved it! Pichi was our instructor - super awesome guy. We went at the worst time of year for visibility (Dec/Jan) but we still loved our diving experience - especially the sharks we saw on every dive! Thank you Pichi for getting me down there - I will think of you every... More

Having been let down by a nearby diving center I went to Felive Diving. Pichi (Ignacio) is a very knowledgeable local guide that makes sure the newbies are well-taken care of and seasoned divers have some fun as well. Of course they could try to pay more attention to safety rules, but all and all Felipe providencia is a very... More

Felipe's is the place to dive on the island. They are professional, have top notch equipment, and are located in the perfect spot on the island. I went on two dives with them and both were shark dives. It had been 4 years since my last dive and I could not have felt more comfortable with their team of instructors.... More

Me and my girlfriend visited Providencia in July 2014 and decided to dive with Felipe's, having heard great things about him and his centre from locals and other travellers.
