Comments 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.
