Rasario Island offers an escape from Cartagena, and after researching all the operators, Diving Planet appeared to be the only credible choice. Many of the operators drop you off on a piece of beach with throngs. Diving Planet will give you an actual diving/snorkeling experience. From the time we arrived until our return, Petra, our Dive Master, ran a well... More

I have worked in this industry and this place has it together. Show up and have a good time. Equipment was great guides were better. can not compare to other operators but after my experience I wouldn't bother looking elsewhere.

This was excellent! My husband and I had a great time snorkeling the reefs. The boat ride there was about 45 minutes, we chose to sit in the front in the sun, but there is shade in the back. I often get sea sick, but took maroel before and was fine! The snorkeling was great, clear water, and great fish... More

The kind of dive operator you can only dream of - everything runs like a well-oiled machine, all brand new gear, beautiful boat, meals included and drinks - All you need to do is turn up! Group sizes are no more than 6 per dive, plenty of attention is paid and they really fill you tanks up (to 3,000) so... More

The organization is very professional and friendly - they came the day before my course to the hostel that I was staying at to drop off my course book. The night dive was beautiful and the coral around the rosario islands was unreal. Everyone that was part of diving planet was nice, friendly and always emphasized safe Diving. They accommodate...

I did two tanks at the Rosario Islands with Diving Planet. Warmest water I've ever dove in, 84°F/29°C. No wetsuit needed. Felt amazing just diving with swim trunks. I've dove the Maldives, Palau, Red Sea, Micronesia, Belize, Hawaii, and more; so to me there was nothing spectacular here to see. That said, if you're a newer diver, this is a... More

We didn't plan to do any diving on the Rosario Islands but the team were so nice and engaging we went diving twice having had no previous experience. Jorge gave us the theory lesson in his office/on the beach and took us underwater to practice. We then went properly diving the following day and the day after. It was the... More

If you want to go snorkeling or diving at the Islas del Rosario - do it with Diving Planet! The staff (our guides were Moises & Petra) were very nice, helpful, easy-going but at the same time very professional and competent. We felt in good hands. They have lots of experience and can answer you any question. Also the staff... More
