Went on two dives today with Hector and they were absolutely amazing. He was really knoweldgable and helpful at all times. He guided the dives very well and was very patient. The dive sites were gorgeous and water and fruit were provided after every dive. I highly recommend this dive shop if you are coming to Huatulco!!!!

I went on a day dive with Hector and we had a great time and he showed me some really cool things i would have missed otherwise. We then went on a night dive and was awesome, very clear and not very deep so greta for beginners. The most amazing part was the bioluminescent effect when we turned our lights... More

I went on a day dive and a night dive with Hector. Both were great (we got lucky and saw a sea horse and sea turtle). Hector has been diving for more than 30 years and did an awesome job before, during, and after diving. He clearly takes great pleasure in making sure that people have a great time diving... More

I'd never been to Huatulco before and I will definitely come back again! Me and my family went there just for a couple of days and unfortunately the wharf was closed till our last day. Hector made that day worth the wait! He took us around the bays and we got to see the wonderful scenery. The best part of... More

We've been in Huatulco the first time and thought about doin a dive there. Fortunately we found Hector! We owe him one of the best days from our travel. The organisation was very simple and spontaneous, so we could do a half day trip just right the next day. The trip was fantastic. It's a very personal atmosphere. Hector also... More

Our group of four divers asked Hector to show us the magic of Huatulco waters. We took 6 dives and each of them was a unique and fantastic experience. Hector's knowledge of the local diving sites, their history and significance to environment is unsurpassed. His attention to detail before, during and after the dive(s) was excellent. Before each dive we... More

As English speaking canadians, we found Hector's English to be very understandable, and his knowledge of the area and diving was impressive. His pre-dive briefing was great, he safety was commendable, and his passion for doing what he does put everyone in great spirits. The groups are always very manageble for Hector, and he isn't willing to too take too... More
