Had my SDI certificate here. As a low-budget backpacker I longly considered whether to do it or not before starting the course, but was totally worth it. I've checked out other dive shops in town as well, but I found Reef Shepherd with the cheapest price. Staffs were amazing as well, Diego, Santiago and my instructor Leonardo. Leo made sure... More

Here I got my SDI Open Water Course and I can say that the instructors are knowleageable and nice. There is a very fiendly atmosphere and the gears are in good shape, specially the wetsuits. Pricewise, you can get good deals for courses and the fun dives.

Fun staff, extremely knowledgeable and very intent on making sure you feel confident and safe in the water. No complaints couldn't have asked for anything more. Oh and free coffee and WiFi to chill after.

This was my second experience SCUBA diving and since I didn't have my certification yet, I did the guided dive. My instructor was extremely polite and very knowledgeable, and did a fantastic job keeping me safe while simultaneously pointing out interesting underwater flora and fauna. Once I get my scuba cert I'm definitely coming back to do a night dive!

So much fun! I had never been scuba diving before so I was a bit nervous but Reef Shepherd totally took care of me. I had an instructor all to myself and he literally held my hand on the first dive and we swum around together. On the second dive when I was more comfortable he let me swim on... More
