We are a PADI Dive Resport located on Tierra Bomba island off the coast of Cartagena Colombia. Jota and Christina are owners who, after diving in many countries, decided it was time to run their own operation back home in Cartagena, Colombia. Jota is a Cartagena native and a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer with over 2,800+ logged dives, diving experience in more than 8 countries, and an amazing knowledge about diving in Cartagena. Christina is from Colorado (USA) and came to Cartagena as a Peace Corps Volunteer in 2011, loved it and stayed. In addition to diving, she is experienced in social development work. We also partner with other instructors and divemasters, ensuring all speak English, are trained PADI professionals, are knowledgeable about the area and dive sites, and have active teaching status.

Day Pass at Blue Apple Beach Resort
Blue Apple is the perfect place to relax in a tropical paradise. After we finish the diving or snorkel activity, you will have the opportunity to spend the afternoon at Blue Apple before a boat brings you back to Cartagena. You can buy lunch and drinks here, or we can arrange a special menu for you. If you need to go directly back to Cartagena and do not want to spend time after diving at Blue Apple that can also be arranged.
Personalized & Private Service
Some divers prefer a private boat and/or specialized service. Based on your needs and budget, there are an array of boats and yachts we can offer you along with our dive or snorkel service for your private group or family.
If you already have a boat picked out, a professional PADI Instructor or Divemaster can join your group on your boat, choose dive sites based on your level and needs, and teach or guide you during the whole activity. Also includes all dive gear and tanks.
