The equipment rented to us by Scuba Panama wasn't safe. The depth meters didn't work, and my backup regulator had a tear in it. When I mentioned this to the dive master, he dismissed it and said to use the primary regulator. I don't know...More

Alexai and Veruska are amazing - they are on top of communication and all your requirements. The dive spots in Portobelo didn't have great visibility. But I'd go diving with Scuba Panama again, albeit to a different spot.

Great service but underwhelming diving experience. Dive operation and dive master did their best but weather conditions led to marginal diving. Recent rains caused visibility issues and unfavorable currents at dive sites.

I had not heard of Panama diving and now I think I know why. Signing up was easy and flexible but the admin people are not terribly helpful or knowledgable. The dive masters were adequate but uninterested in guiding. Mostly it seemed they were there...More
