This was my first time to Columbus Isle and diving with Seafari, but everything was great. The staff was friendly, bilingual, and helpful. One thing that was different from other dive shops I've been with was the extra $10 to dive with a guide. While this may seem a little unusual, I believe it's worth the expense as they are... More

Had a fantastic experience diving with my kids for th first time ever. Saw Dolphin swimming and then on subsequent dives, reef sharks, hammerheads, rays and so much gorgeous underwater life. Thanks so much to Dan, Danny, Auri and the rest of the crew (Sarah, Jeremy, Chloe etc). Can't wait to come back.

I came by myself for two nweeks vacation and especially diving I found a very professional team, beautiful spots with many different animals (turtles sharks, rays, barracudas ...), nice staff to provide advice and to improve and enjoy my dives with a friendly atmosphère on the boat.

This is a great dive center at Club Med San Salvador Island. Amazing dive sites. Lots of big and small fish. Really nice staff members and managers. They even have a dive doctor and chamber at the Club Med site. The dive Doctor dives as well.

The experience at Seafari, Club Med Columbus Isle, made our stay. Shout out to Steffi (instructor) and Nelly (office manager) but particularly to Beth, a brilliant instructor that gave my children an experience so positive that they have discovered an avocation for life.

This is our second time diving with Seafari Bahamas. They are a wonderful Dive operation. I dove with my 13 year old son and his best friend, both intermediate divers. Each site was carefully picked so that there was unlimited visibility, no current and ample marine life possible. Out of the 5 days we dove, not one dive disappointed. Each... More

The boats are great. The dive masters are safety conscious and fun to hang out with in between dives. We dove with Noi, Greg, Jeremy and Hutch. We saw close to twenty sharks during four days of diving. Unfortunately no hammerheads. We saw lots of other sea life from drum fish to turtles. Great diving and a great dive company!
