This is a Spanish and Diving Course for our students in Cartagena that want to become fluent in Spanish and also independent divers. Many of our students wish to take advantage of the warm, transparent water of the Caribbean to learn scuba diving at the same time that they are improving their Spanish.

The scuba diving centre has a Gold Palm Resort of PADI, which is the top distinction that this association awards to scuba diving centres around the world, thanks to the equipment used, the quality of the air, the security systems used and above all to the people participating in the teaching process.
