Diving in Taganga & Tayrona
Taganga is a small village on the Caribbean coast of Colombia. It’s mostly known as a great place to chill out, fun scuba diving and often serves as the launching point of trips to nearby Tayrona park. The view from its deeply-set bay is stunning and the surrounding diving opportunities are a marvel. It only takes a few minutes by boat to get to Tayrona and enjoy its fantastic underwater world. There are 22 dive sites, including reefs with soft & hard corals, sunken ships, caves, and a variety of marine life.

What our clients are saying about us
I cannot thank Lisi enough for teaching me to dive. I was nervous at the beginning, but really really wanted to see all the beauty I knew was under there. Lisi was careful with her instructions and gave me all the time I needed to feel comfortable and ready to go underwater. Once in the water, her presence was enough to make me feel safe and secure anytime I got a little nervous. In the end I absolutely loved diving! It's been three months since I learned with Lisi and I still can't stop thinking about.
I couldn't have imagined a better first diving experience than with Lisi. She knows how to personalize the diving course as to focus on your necessities and personality. We had very good communication from the beginning. She always makes sure you understand and provides all the information needed for both the diving and the studying part. Lisi made me feel really comfortable during my dives, very calmed down and no rush. Again I really appreciate that she notice who you are as a person and accomstomize the course. Lisi is a fun, happy and very proffesional person and instructor and I can without a doubt reccomend her to every one of you!
I had been scuba diving once before and I wasn't able to equalize my ears and it was a huge bummer. So when my friends and I decided to get certified, I was worried I'd have the same experience and it would be a waste. We met Lisi and I immediately felt better about it, she answered all our questions and we felt very relaxed about the next days. When it was time to dive, Lisi was professional and relaxing. She took her time to make sure everyone was comfortable and got a hold of the underwater exercises. After our dives, Lisi was informative and fun. She recommended places to eat, drink, even some of her favorite places to dive around the world. She made the experience more than just getting scuba certified. I couldn't imagine a better experience or a better instructor. Thank you for everything Lisi!
I completed my PADI Open Water Diving Certification with Lisi in February 2017, and the experience could not have been any better. I had never been diving before, and Lisi made me feel so comfortable throughout the entire certification process. She was patient, kind, positive, and an overall awesome teacher. She truly went above and beyond all of my expectations; she met with us before we began our training so that we could get acquainted, and she showed us around more of Taganga and gave us tips on the area. She really puts her own personal touch on the whole experience. I would 100% recommend Lisi to anyone looking to get their scuba diving certification; she makes sure that you feel safe and supported, and by the end of the process you are completely confident in your skill set. I can’t imagine having done my training with anyone else!
Getting open water certified has been a goal of mine for quite some time, and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Lisi was great to learn from, and she was very knowledgeable and professional. You could definitely tell she’s been diving for quite a while and knows her stuff. There were three of us in the group, and she did a great job of making sure everyone was comfortable, having fun, and doing everything correctly. I would definitely recommend her for anyone else looking to get certified!
