It is also the diving school in Cartagena that offers the widest range of courses. No matter if you are a beginner or advanced diver they will have what you need.

The crew will transport you straight to your diving spot early in the morning to ensure that the courses can offer two immersions in the crystal clear blue water.

They will provide you with a light picnic lunch and drinks during a break with the most amazing view over the ocean. You will arrive back to the city centre just before the sunset.
