I did my open water coarse with Marvin, from Santa Marta Dive and Adventures, and it was an unbelievable experience. Marvin trained me one on one for 3 days and was an awesome teacher and guide. Easy 5 stars!

The staff where brilliant and thorough with the teaching. Especially with my daughter who was nervous at first but now is addicted and wants to do a dive or snorkel at any chance. I would have no hesitation in recommending these guys.

Just finished my open water diving course with Leonardo. He was super patient, knowledgeable, perfect English and an all round genuine lad. He couldn't have made the course easier and more enjoyable. Everyone in the shop are also lovely and really helpful. Couldn't recommend more!
