    Went with Poseidon Dive Center in Toganga, Columbia, since I was
visiting that lovely country and wanted to try some diving there.  This is
not their best area.  German run center, good service, $65 for 2 dives, 8am
to 1.30, with a snack.  Good rental equipment, new boat, DMs are friendly
and expereinced.  We dove in two groups, beginners and 6 experienced.  All
dives are along the coast line so about 60 feet, 50 to 60 minutes.  Vis
only 30 to 40 feet.  Saw lots of small fish, half dozen eels, a hawkbill
turtle.  DM said that he had 2,000 dives in area and only saw one shark, a
nurse.  Pretty fished out, unfortunately, but worth a day dive if you are
in the area.
