I'm a California diver with about 150 dives. I was in PV with two diver friends, and we booked 2 boat trips of 2 dives each. It was great! Our divemaster/guides, Hector (day 1) and Carlos (day 2) were safe, patient, professional, and friendly. They both spoke great English, but were also patient with my efforts to practice Spanish. They... More

Hector and Carlos were excellent divemasters. Hector had excellent local dive knowledge, was safe and considerate of our group's differing skill and comfort levels. Carlos provided an exceptional dive and wildlife viewing experience. As a marine mammal veterinarian, his knowledge is hard to surpass, especially when it comes to cetaceans. It was heartening to hear his story of his career... More

I was in Puerto Vallarta for a wedding and decided to go scuba diving one day. We were so lucky the hotel hooked us up with Vallarta Undersea. It was my first dive ever and I was honestly terrified but Alexi was so reassuring and calming, he was the perfect guide. He took such great care of me during the... More

My husband and I had a great day diving Los Arcos with Vallarta Undersea. I am a novice diver and Lilliana was gracious and understanding at the desk as she explained the dive the day before. There were 8 divers on our boat and they sent two dive masters with us. This was nice because the more experienced went with... More

I've gone diving with Vallarta Undersea a number of times now, and I always have a great day. Armando, Hector and Carlos (Eco Explorer) always make me and my guests feel welcome. This year I needed to organize a snorkel trip for myself and a non-diving friend - Carlos showed us a great time at the Marietas Isles ("secret" beach,... More

Vallarta Undersea was only my second dive outing, but was by far the best experience. Both my boyfriend and I went (he has around 30 dives) on the recommendation of a dive instructor in Seattle. Our instructor (the BF and I did the Discovery Scuba package, both to provide him with a refresher and to allow me to dive), Oswaldo,... More

This dive was to about 120 feet. It did make me feel more cumfortable to see an ample supply of extra gas if needed. I was picked up from... More

I arrived at the dive shop at 9 and we were on the panga by 9:30. I just recertified after being away from the sport for 30 years. The other dive shops wouldn't take me because I didn't have proof of my previous history. But the divemaster, Hector, said he would give me personal attention and evaluate my performance as... More

The dive shop, itself, isn't anything to behold, but the experience, the staff and the equipment were all first class. Armando took great care of us over the phone to arrange a private boat for our family. They worked with me to change the date when I got sick and then showed up in style on a Sunday to take... More

My wife and I booked a scuba/snorkeling trip with Vallarta Undersea, and went into the diveshop one day before the trip. We wanted to ensure that my photocopied dive certificate, online payment and wife pregnancy were all going to be ok. The staff were incredibly helpful.
