We are very proud to say that we are the first and only dive center in Panama to offer these programs. We are in the dive industry because of our passion for the underwater world and no other dive shop does more for diver education, marine protection, and community awareness.

It’s easy to learn and can be done while diving a coral reef anywhere in the world.
