The geographical richness of Santa Marta provides us with a large number of diving sites with different characteristics for divers of all levels, in addition, the trade winds combined with the position and height of the Sierra Nevada have isolated the reefs of the different bays, creating unique conditions which have resulted in beautiful Coral colonies.

The most outstanding feature of our dive sites is that in a single dive you can see most of the Caribbean reef fish, for example it is common to see more than three species of parrot fish, butterflies and angels in addition to colorful trumpets, bishops, schools of surgeons, grunts, squirrels, blue, gray and crossbow chromes, among others, without counting on brain corals, golf balls, octocorals, starfish, sea fans, lobsters, crustaceans and crabs that you will be able to observe in its natural environment.
