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

Went to Acapulco in March and went snorkeling with Andres at the helm and Victor as my guide. Everyone associated with the SDA was delightful, helpful, open, and charming. I learned as much from the driver who took me back to my hotel as I did from Mario! In fact, he convinced me to get my certification in diving there!... More

A fellow diver told me, when asked why leared to dive at SDA: "when safety and experience count, go for the best, not the cheapest" Swiss Divers was founded around 15 years ago and is set in a part of the hotel Caleta that was among the top place to be and to be seen in in the 50s and... More

Together with my husband we arrived in Acapulco at the beginning of February 2014. Despite the common opinion that Pacific Ocean isn't suitable place for scuba diving, we decided to try. And we weren't disappointed even for a minute. Very friendly and professional instructor. I'm slightly scared of water and shortness of breath, but he could calm me down and... More

It was a three hour snorkeling experience in two different places. We had to have the boat come tk our hotel (holiday inn) and get in on the beach because the christmas parade was blocking off some streets. We had an awesome day of weather and we ate some yummy sandwiches and a banana with unlimited soda and water. Those... More
