Oceano Scuba gave us a great introduction to scuba diving. We took the PADI Open Water course, which included 6 dives over 3 days, a bit of theory, and watching PADI instruction videos. The best part of our experience was our knowledgeable instructor Tomasz, who had a very pleasant style of teaching and communicating, and made us feel safe and... More

I went there because a friend of mine recommended this shop. Their slogan is "the best school in Taganga". Hard to say if it is true because I didn't need to find another one :-). But this is definitively a very very good one. I felt at the beginning the big experience of the team and I experienced a very... More

Me and my girlfriend took our PADI Open Water certs. here. It was all in all a great experience! All the staff was bilingual, and very friendly/helpful. Took us 3 days and 6 dives at beautiful spots outside of Taganga/Tayrona. Good gear, good food, safe and fun. Absolutely worth every peso. Highly recommended!

We looked at a lot of different dive schools in Taganga and I'm so glad we went with this one. They were professional, friendly, patient, super focused on safety and had great equipment. We had the best time. Ask for Mehran - he was a spectacular teacher.

if you are a scuba interested person and interested with pictures, may be this is not the best place. Safety and helping is good, but the experience is not so great with the cloudy water.

We have an expression in Germany, that "someone is reading your wishes from your eyes". We had almost that feeling here. There was nothing we could claim about. We were treated in the best way we could think about and the only we can say is thank you guys for the wonderful days. Thank you Andres, thank you Mehran, thank... More

All the Instructors are remarkable people with a big and wide knowledge, so I was perfectly prepared for every situation I could possibly get into in my new diving career.
