Go Diving in the Rosario Islands!!

Diving Planet - Search Nearby - Added by Piper Wolters

Dive in some of the most gorgeous turquoise water, with extremely healthy coral reefs! With such sweet instructors!

Diving Planet is the best company to dive with in Cartagena. They are very organized, and speak several languages, including Spanish, English, German, and maybe more. The guides are great teachers, super helpful, and love their jobs.

Their space is located near El Teatro Peredia. If you're getting there by taxi, most drivers will know exactly where it is. Make sure to make a reservation at least a few days in advance. Usually there is space, but better safe than sorry.

They will provide all of the gear, and even lunch/snacks. Everyone will hop in a van and drive to one of the really nice marinas in Cartagena, where their private speed boat will be ready to take off. The boat ride is about an hour long. You will leave the view of the skyscrapers, in exchange for unbelievably clear water and white sandy beaches. 

The boat will pull into a private section of one of the islands. You walk right into what looks like a beautiful resort. There's a huge oceanside pool, beach, palm trees, and plenty of diving gear!

If you are already PADI certified, you will be taken back out on the boat immediately, to your first dive sight. Since I had never dived before, I spent the first half of the day in the pool, learning the basics. Then, after lunch, we headed out and jumped in!

The coral reefs are so healthy and colorful. The water is an unreal shade of blue. The experience was mind-blowing and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves the water! 

Yippee for DIVING and the ROSARIO ISLANDS!!
