San Andres Divers will work hard to make your dive day memorable for the great experience and memories, not the long boat ride to the reef and then again back to the dock. We are situated with fast boats on both the west and east sides of the island closest to the most popular dive sites to minimize transit times; you can be back from a two tank dive in time for lunch or a siesta….alternatively, we can add a third dive after a leisurely lunch at the Cove, a popular surface interval site serving delicious seafood.If you are not yet a SCUBA Diver, or wish to complete an Open Water Referral, take a Specialty Course or an Advanced Certification, our international, multi-lingual Staff would be pleased to assist you. We offer the world-recognized scuba diving certifications of PADI and NAUI. We look forward to helping you arrange your visit to San Andres Island and serving you with a great Caribbean scuba diving holiday!

I decided to do this activity really last minute, and walked from West View Playa to the San Andrés Divers (like across the street diagonally. I asked if I could do Snuba in the office, and they set me up with a 30 minute session. With 60mil for dive and 30mil for photos, I will say it was definitely the... More

I took the discover diving course, very short, about 2 hours in total including short instructions, pool exercises and sea experience. It was good for someone like me who had never dived before, it left me wanting to go back and do more dives, or at least get the Open Water certification in the future. They picked me up and...

I've choosed that Dive Shop after looking online for diving shop in San Andres. If you are an experienced diver, don't go with them. They focus on Basic and Advanced courses. Lots of dive students around. So they just give you a guide, to do some shore dive in front the Dive Shop. And this guide keeps pushing you to... More

We went to San Andres Divers to do a double dive with them. We didnt go by boat but walked directly to the shore. Which was ok but a little hard because of the heavy tank and the weight belt which you have to carry. The first dive was ok and a little bit outside in the ocean, the second... More

My worst diving experience so far. I wanted to do my advanced open water course with them, was the worst idea ever. As we wanted to do the deep dive we did our buddy check and found out that my buddy's octopus didn't work, but our instructor told us we could still dive anyway. No concerns about security here. It... More

I spent 4 days diving with the San Andres divers club doing 2 dives every morning. The club is big and has its own big swimming pool for beginners. Martin my dive master was almost exclusively for me and we did some good dives together. The rest of the staff is also nice. I recommend this club.
