DIVING CENTER

The diving center is located at number 9 local of the Hansa Coral building, between the pedestrian area and the “pink zone”. We have professionals who receive in a cozy and modern environment, with a wide area of sales and technical advice, classroom, equipment repair workshop and “rent” area where to choose the perfect equipment for diving. Naturally we have sub-aquatic video cameras so you enjoy the best of your adventure.

DIVING ZONES

We go out every day at 8:30 a.m. after check-in at our center. The boats are comfortable, with enough space for 14 divers and the distance of the security equipment: VHF communication channel 16, first aid kit, DAN (oxygen) kit and the most importantly, a trained and qualified team to provide all the security necessary to make your dive a unique experience.

We delay between 10 and 45 minutes arriving at the chosen dive sites. The choice of site depends on the climatic conditions and the experience of the participants. Once arrived our instructors informed them about the particularities of the site and the safety regulations. Before the second dive we have a rest, on the land or on the boat offering you a snack.

At the end we will return to the diving center to fill the logbook and continue enjoying the day on our beautiful island.

FUNNY DIVING

Ocean Explorer Dive Center offers the opportunity to do recreational diving fun and safe. We have the service of a fully equipped boat for our dives around the island, as long as we have 3 divers and the weather conditions allow it, especially for trips to the south east side of the island (Barlovento side).
Their guides are experienced instructors who have a vast knowledge of San Andrés as well as their crew.
