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. They accepted my ACUC Advanced Dive certificate, confirmed receipt of the deposit made online... More

We can't say enough great things about our experiences with Oswaldo, Carlos and Emilio! Super friendly, thorough, professional, ecologically-minded, and wonderful company. We felt safe and supported the entire time. Oswaldo provided a safety scuba course at our hotel, and then was our dive master on two beautiful dives the next day. Carlos greeted us at the dock, pointed out... More

Carlos and Oswaldo were great! Carlos is amazingly knowledgeable and friendly. Oswaldo is an extremely professional dive instructor and put me onto some great fish, sea snakes, and Moray eels. The boat captain was also very helpful and made the trip across the bay to Marietas very smooth. Will definitely use them again on next PV dive.

we arrived very late, called the next morning, and Vallarta Undersea was very accommodating to schedule a private dive for my husband and me. The boat was lovely, the equipment was nice, and Carlos was very knowledgable. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to dive here.

Never use this guys! I went diving with them and they stole my scuba mask. The worst part of all was that owner of the business washed his hands of the issue and the dive masters also.

We went to Los Arcos with Vallarta Undersea. My husband is a scuba diver and I only snorkle. They were very accomodating to us both. Hector and Carlos were wonderful. My husband was very pleased with the dive experience. Carlos took me around to the best snorkeling areas. Very clear waters and lots to see. I even got to hold... More

My husband and I booked through our hotel's activities desk, who recommended Vallarta Undersea because we preferred a smaller, more personalized dive experience. Because I am not certified, I took a brief pool class with Carlos the day before our dive. He was incredibly thorough and patient, and he went at my pace. The next day we were the only... More

We just completed a 3 day 7 dive trip with Vallarta Undersea and couldn't be more impressed. Their equipment (Boats & Gear) are top notch, and their staff are true professionals (which is extremely important in this sport). Their pre-dive preparations were thorough, and their dive procedures insured everyone safety and enjoyment. our dive masters (Hector and Charlie) were AWESOME!... More

We dove three consecutive days with this company. They have professional staff, and sufficiently equipped boats. My husband and I are certified divers, Padi rescue and assistant instructor. We dive frequently in different places, especially in colder waters with less visibility. We were very pleased by the extensive briefings given by the instructor before the dive, as well as the...

I really appreciated the time that the divemaster Juan Carlos spent with us. He is professional, knowledgable and friendly. He even found a missing snorkel that my girlfriend lost. During our surface interval, we got to see a beautiful trio of whales! I would highly recommend the company to anyone, and would love to dive with them again.
