Beautiful dive with the J man! Went out for 2 tank dive with 2 others. First dive since my certification in Belize 6 months ago. Joao made it a safe refresher and then once I had my sea legs he made it a little more challenging. Do yourself a favor and DIVE ZIHUA! And get the T-shirt! I can't wait... More

Had a great trip. Diving was an extra add on that became a huge highlight of my adventure. Dive Zihua was incredibly friendly and professional. Showed me some beauties in the bay. Swam with a spotted eagle ray at solitary rock and hung out with a couple octopi. Passionate and enthusiastic. I will come back.

Getting OW certified with Joao was great! He put me on the hot seat and challenged me both in and out of the water. He made me feel like I was getting certified in a discipline that was well beyond one for recreation. I felt like I was on my way to becoming a marine biologist or rescue diver. Thanks... More

Hello Mike, I'm glad that I challenged you! You seemed like the type that likes a challenge. Plus, you were already certified so a bit more of info just made your diving skills better I believe! Plus I hope you now see the difference between Naui certifications and PADI ones. Great diving with you! Saludos Joao More

Joao is extremely friendly and knowledgeable and the fish and corals are really spectacular here. Swimming with schools of fish, seeing a giant eel, moorish idols, angelfish and much, much more will certainly be a great memory for a long time!

This was the highlight of our trip! Joao was great at showing us how to use the snorkeling gear safely and told us about the fish we saw. He brought us to two different sites and we saw tons of amazing, colorful fish! Don't miss this activity!

I wanted to have a refresher dive since I haven't dove for 10 years. Joao took me out for a shallow refresher dive. He reviewed important skills. When we descended 30 feet to the bottom, he demonstrated the skills and then I repeated. When he was confident I was comfortable with all the skills we continued on our dive. He... More

Despite my timing being bad, I got lucky enough to have one day of diving. Joao was friendly, and accommodating. Super accommodating. He was also patient and helpful. I appreciated that he took me eventhough I was a solo diver. Great information and great advice. All that's missing is for him to control the weather. Thank you Joao!

We took the discover scuba course and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great instructor who really knew his stuff and offered so much advice and tips for our continuation in the sport. Awesome experience we won't be forgetting anytime soon.
