Did the minicourse last saturday. It was pretty affordable, very friendly staff and very knowledgeable. They took us to Tayrona's park and did a couple of dives. I really loved it and definitely will get the license through Octopus. Thanks a lot Cata!

So the first time I went to dive was, with these guys and I did learn a lot and trust them and there equipment. They don't rush you into anything like other dive centers.

Great school. Even when they're extremely friendly they were strict regarding checking all the knowledge required to get the PADI certificate. I felt safe all the time, equipments are good. And it's such a good atmosphere. Ada its the best host.
