Our Operation

We are a registered PADI Dive Resort. Our boat leaves from mainland Cartagena and travels 30 minutes until we reach our dive center, which located in a beautiful beach resort on Tierra Bomba Island. 

Breathing underwater is an amazing experience every time you do it. Come on one of our scuba diving or snorkeling day-trips to join us for some offshore adventures! You will be happy with your decision to become a part of our diving family.​

Jota and Christina are owners who, after diving in many countries, decided it was time to run their own operation back home in Cartagena, Colombia. Jota is a Cartagena native and a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer with 2,800+ dives, diving experience in more than 8 countries, and an amazing knowledge about diving in Cartagena. Christina is from Colorado (USA) and came to Cartagena as a Peace Corps Volunteer in 2011, loved it and stayed. We also partner with other instructors and divemasters, ensuring all speak English, are trained PADI professionals, have great people skills, are knowledgeable about the area and dive sites, and have PADI active teaching status.
