THE DIVE SHOP OLD PROVIDENCE, Providencia Isla

My name is Alejandro Archbold. With 20 years’ diving experience and 15 years as an

instructor, I am an islander proud of my family’s seamen heritage, which I endeavor to preserve

through our boutique dive shop, catering to clients who value high-quality personal service and

safety. Children, elderly and special needs students and divers are welcome in our dive shop.

Our equipment is top-of- the-line and in excellent maintenance conditions, including our brand

new Bauer compressor. We are currently the only dive shop offering Nitrox in Providencia &

Santa Catalina.

Actions taken to promote environmental or social sustainability

We fully brief and debrief divers and diving students on the ecological importance and

sensitivity of the Seaflower Biosphere Reserve that we are privileged to enjoy and should not

disturb.

We do not feed the animals we encounter, including squalls, so as not to alter their feeding

habits and areas.

Briefing includes, among others, “no touching”- approach and discouraging divers from wearing

gloves or taking souvenirs from the sea; collecting litter we find during our dives for adequate

disposal.

We hire local.
