My initial experiences with Karibik began when I was sending emails to Christian, the dive shop owner, prior to our arrival. I am very attentive to details and have to admit that Christian received more than his fair share of emails from me, but what impressed me from the beginning was that he responded to every single one very promptly....

I dove with Karibik Diver for three days while staying on the island of San Andres. All the dives were beautiful and relaxing, with a no rush attitude. I felt safe with all employees I interacted with and enjoyed getting to know other divers on the dive boats.

It had been several years since my Wife and I dove with Werner (then the owner of Karibik) so we were a little apprehensive when we learned that our favorite dive-master had sold his shop and retired. We were however, comforted by the great reviews for Christian, the new owner - we were not in any way disappointed. Christian is... More

I had a great and exiting dive week on San Andres with Christian from Karibik Diver Base. If you look for a professional and reliable place for diving this is the place to go. With his responsible and soothing approach he also can help you to master some difficult situations. I always would go back to this place. It's worth... More

I dove for 10 days with Karibik, and I have nothing but praise to say. We were a group of experience divers, and, they let us dive at our rhythm, slow at times, diving as long as we had air, and showing us great sites. Always snacks and water on the boat, even asking our preferences for the next day... More

Together with my wife, we went to Karibik Diver to do get our first diving certification. The guide was very professional, patient and enthusiastic. He also made everything possible to make the dives as long as possible. Within the certification, we made 6 dives, all about 60 minutes long. Additionally, the equipment is high quality. After getting the license, we... More

We dived for 3 days with Karibik - twice each day, visiting different dive sites every time except for one repeat. Everything was great. The equipment seemed in good condition, and everyone got a dive computer (I wish every dive shop did this!). Christian was a great guy to dive with, very calm and professional. He always ensured the whole... More

Great dive shop. Safe, professional and if you are experienced they let you dive how you like. If you are new they will guide you through the dive. Also they include a dive computer (no extra charge) which is great for deeper dives. Highly recommended
