I recomend this diving company to anyone wanting to dive in Acapulco. I recently did two boat trips with two dives on each trip. The pick up from the hotel was on time, very surprising considering the traffic problems in the city. The rented gear was of good quality and they quickly gave us our equipment. The boats are well...

Our driver, Jack, was very informative about the city during the short drive to the dive shop. We were introduced to the staff for the trip, outfitted with our gear, and on board the boat in...

My partner and I had never scuba dived before and I wanted to really learn how. These guys really made it easy for us to experience what it would be like. They gave us a crash course on the gear and safety. Once we were fitted and at the dive sight, the instructor had us hold onto the side of... More

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

This was my first dive outside of my training, and my first ocean dive. 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.
