About Refugio de Buzos - Valencia

Welcome to Refugio de Buzos Dive School.

More than 20 years ago we began the history of Refugio de Buzos, being today a great school and community of people passionate about the underwater world, with more than 500 happily certified students who usually operate between the Coasts of Morrocoy, Puerto Cabello and La Ciénaga de Ocumare.

Our headquarters are located in the city of Valencia, but we have diving clubs in the cities of Maracaibo (Dive Maracaibo Club) and Barquisimeto (Laracuatics), from where we also teach diving courses and organize excursions for our divers.

We are the architects of the Gran Roque and Carmen Fabiana artificial reefs, located in Guabinas Bay, near to La Ciénaga de Ocumare and with important environmental conservation projects such as the Coral Farm and the Journeys to Control the Lion Fish Invasions. The protection of our seas and their resources, is one of our fundamental values.
