We got lucky and after reading great reviews for Quimera, were able to book with Diego the day before. Our trip today was fantastic. A must do while you are staying in Santa Marta. The trip takes you by boat from Santa Marta into the waters of Tayrona - which is a park under the water, not just the beaches.... More

I dived about a week ago with 2 other friends. We did the 4 hours discover scuba dive with Diego. I and a friend had little to no diving experience, but we had 2 accompanying divers following the 3 of us and felt safe the entire time. They did everything scuba related for us, all we had to do was... More

We had our first dive experience with Diego and his crew. It was amazing! Diego is really cool and relaxed, he explained us the most important things so we can enjoy the dive and the sea in its whole beauty. I had some fears but Diego convinced me in an easy way to try it out and gave me a... More

I dived this morning with Diego and had an amazing time! The highlight of my time in Colombia :-) I am a beginner diver with no Spanish and this was perfect - Diego knows so much about diving and the marine environment. His passion, enthusiasm and friendliness made the two dives we did amazing! I have dived in Australia, Fiji,... More

My partner and I are both certified divers, but beginners. We went diving with Diego this morning and had a tremendous experience. He is professional, friendly, and punctual, but what was most noteworthy was that he made a decision that was based solely on our best safety interest. It was incredibly windy today as we set off for Tyrona National... More

It was my first time diving and Deigo made it a very enjoyable and relaxing. He is funny and is very passionate about diving and marine ecology. We started in Santa Martha's international marina. Boarded a boat for a half hour ride to Tairona National Park where we did two dives. The marine life was spectacular. We saw all kinds... More

Uma das experiências mais incríveis de nossas vidas. Fomos eu, minha namorada e um amigo. Diego e jonathan foram muito atenciosos, tornaram a experiência ainda mais especial.

It was incredible to go diving with Diego. He is so passionate about his work and marine life and his positive energy made our day. We started off the day at the marina and had an nice boat ride over to our dive spot. Diego gave the newbies a quick and funny run through. Then the first dive was great,... More

My boyfriend and I went diving with Diego earlier in the month and had such a fabulous time. Quimera Divers is a very unique company in the sense that Diego only takes one couple/group of friends out at a time. You will not be on the trip with anyone that you do not know. It was a relaxing and intimate... More
