Diving courses in Venezuela
Learn diving around the island of Margarita

The island of Margarita has a lot of places to dive, some are very beautiful - others not. It is easy to discover the under water world with a normal aqualung. Since it is shallow water, systems like rebreather or nitrox diving are not necessary. Unfortunately there are no big caves or grottos where it would be possible to do cave diving. Very seldom you will find mantas and sharks. So this means relaxed and easy diving trips down to 15 to 20 meters. Who would like it more extreme can take part in a current diving trip.

Some addicional information


You can trust us of course that we let you only in the water with experienced instructors and with modern technique. All our diving teachers are certified either from Scuba Schools International (SSI) or Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI). Both SSI and PADI are members of a holding company (RSTC), which has centralized the standards of education and security in the diving education.
You can book of course also courses of instruction with us in order to get a diving certificate which is recognized worldwide from these renovated organisations.


The tours which we mediate include all good food. With good food we do not mean to give you only quickly some sandwiches, instead we mean a good BBQ with drinks!
A diving day is from 8:30 to 16:00 o'clock and consists of two dives.
You can borrow the equipment on site.
If you are doing VIP-diving, we guarantee you that max. four to six divers are in each group.
