I would definitely recommend Scuba Master for anyone who is interested in diving, experienced or, like me, a first timer. Fernando was my instructor and he made me feel very safe! I was very very scared and nervous in the beginning and he was able to calm me down and at the end of the course I felt comfortable under... More

I had a great fun dive at scuba master. It had been 2 yeara ago that I had last been diving, so I was a bit nervous. But Che helped me out great, by being patient, friendly and showed a lot of experience. Together with Jessie they explained to me everything again because I forgot some things. It was a... More

As a PADI instructor that has seen quite a few dive shops and even worked for more than one here in Taganga, this is by far the best, safest dive shop here. They have the most experienced, patient and friendly staff plus the best equipment (models+condition). Highly recommended for anyone from first timers to the very advanced.

Unfortunately, on the second day of our course we ended up cancelling due to an incident that occurred on our first dive. The proper safety procedures were not followed (the... More

Sam and his girlfriend came to us to do their open water. They wanted to exchange an instagram page for a course. I decided we weren't interested and they sign up for the course normally. After the first day of the course they cancelled their program dives with no notice twice and they came back on the 4th day to... More

We were very happy with the competent and very friendly staff (thank you Che, Fernando, Mati and Junior!), the beautiful dive sites and the good vibes at the dive school! Highly recommended to anyone from... More

Myself and my boyfriend completed the 3 day PADI open water course with scuba master while we stayed in Taganga. It was our first time diving and I would recommend Scuba Master to anyone. I was (needlessly!) nervous at the beginning of the course and our instructor Santiago had great patience and helped me along until the nerves passed. We... More
