I took a Kayaking tour while my grandparents had their siesta. The guide, Nergo (I really think I'm spelling it wrong) was very nice and did his best to include me in conversations as I was the only English-speaking person on the Kayak tour. We got to snorkel a little bit in a cove off of the mainland, then kayaked... More

My wife vacationed in Acapulco for 8 days in January. We booked the 2-tank SCUBA Diving for Beginners tour with SAS, and had a fantastic time. Before booking online, I had a few questions, so I sent SAS an email. I received a response in a matter of hours, which impressed me. Everyone we dealt with at SAS was helpful,... More

I enjoyed all 3 of my trips. For my scuba, I really appreciated getting my own divemaster as I was the only advanced diver on the boat. Instead of being grouped in with the novices who were just learning, I got to go off and explore!! The crew was freindly and helpful. The shop was in a beautiful location. Lots... More

We went out on two snorkel trips with them in the two weeks we were in Acapulco and if I hadn’t had some problems with my asthma would have gone on more trips with them. They also offered scuba, hiking and kayaking trips. They were well priced. The staff were wonderful! Professional, helpful and fun to be around. They were... More

I did the 2 tank dive for non-certified divers. It was affordable and cheaper than my first dive in the Riviera Maya, and it included transportation from our resort + sandwiches/fruit/water/soda. Since these were only my 2nd and 3rd dives and it had been over two years since the first I was nervous, but my dive master Patrick was very... More

We went snorkeling with SDA crew and it would have been a 5 star event if not for lack of sunburn warning. We got severe sunburn (see a sample pic), although it would have been so easy to avoid. They should have warned us - snorkel in a shirt (like they do) or else you will look and feel like... More

On behalf of Swiss Divers, we appreciate your comments of your recent stay with us. We make every effort to ensure that all our guests receive a good service. Generally we have a security briefing at the beginning when the boat leaves where we also state about sun protection, looks like someone missed this part. If you made the reservation... More

I have a great scuba diving day in Acapulco with Swiss Divers. They were very professional. Patrick was a great guide making sure that we saw many things and that the dive was fun. Price was very reasonable. Acapulco is a much better place to dive of what I though. La Cagada in Roquetta is highly recommended.
