I was in Accapulco for performing my Padi Deep Diving. Everything was perfect, from shuttle Service over Equipment and Diving. The dive instructors are very professional, Prices are ok and staff is very kind. I can recommend Swiss Divers Association. Markus

So this was my very first time diving and I have to admit I was terrified to do it but once I arrived to the shop and met the instructors and Captain, I felt safe and ready to venture into the ocean. The instructors are professionals; they are easy to talk to and they adapt to the divers' level of... More

The staff were all very helpful and kind, great guides, answered my questions, showed us lots of stuff. only one other certified diver, and 2 dive masters, so lots of personalized attention. The sandwiches they provide for lunch (ham and cheese) were a little lean, so... More

i did the 1/2 day snorkel. The captain and his guide Louis were attentive and dedicated. It really seemed they loved what they do. I saw some great marine life and on the way back the captain pointed out the homes of the rich and famous. In spite of a language barrier they were extremely helpful.

While planning our Holidays we decided to go scuba diving in Acapulco. After a quick research on TripAdvisor we found Mario and his SDA. We contacted him to ask if there is free space on the days we are there. He even helped us to find and reserve a place to stay in Acapulco! The place he had for us... More

All the guys at SDA are extremely nice and welcoming! I've just begun diving, and Andres, our dive master, really looked out for me....he is the BEST! The water visibility wasn't that good the day we went out, but Andres still managed to find a stingray, blowfish, an octopus, sea urchin... Overall great experience.

After more than 10 dives and being student of special courses (Navigation, Deep Dive and Nitrox) during different seasons, by far best dive center in Acapulco. Friendly staff, competent and well equiped! Mario and his team comply with expectations of a professional dive center, as well for beginners and also advanced divers! Boats are well maintained and save, always good... More
