Dive Zihua is located at the heart of downtown Zihuatanejo. We are a new PADI dive centre with an atmosphere you would expect to find in a small dive operation. We not only have a passion for diving but all of our staff have been involved with conservation efforts for years and it is our philosophy to bring safe fun diving with an appreciation to the aquatic environment.We offer both diving and snorkeling tours through our full service dive facility. Our shop is very easy to find we are one block from the beach in between restaurant Murmullo and Bar Zorro's.

Very prompt email communication and the day of the meeting Paco and captain Luis where already there. Very nice and knowledgeable people. Paco... More

After learning about Paco on TripAdvisor we contacted him via email and reserved our dates. We did our book portion on PADI's e-learning site. Upon arrival, after an orientation, we went to a hotel pool about 50' away from their shop. We spent a couple hours there and then left to enjoy the rest of the day. The 2nd and... More

Beautiful weather, water was warm with the odd cold patch when down deep. Awesome dive master that spoke perfect English, lots of creatures, hundreds of fish and too top it off a eagle Ray flying by, visibility was great....

My friend and I had an amazing time with Dive Zihua. The diving was fantastic, and the owner was so personable. I would recommend Dive Zihua to anyone!

I booked a two dives tour with Dive Zihua - the guys called previous evening to advise of poor conditions, some waves but mostly poor visibility and suggested to cancel. I appreciated the warning while they could've just charge the fee and take me for a non interesting and disappointing dive in the bay. Next time, will call them without... More

My friends and I got our open water certifications here this week, and I have nothing but good things to say about the experience. Joao (owner/instructor) is a great teacher, both above and below water. Whether I was succeeding easily or struggling with a task, he patiently kept talking (or signing) and demonstrating, and providing a ton of positive feedback... More

I highly recommend contacting Dive Zihua if you are interested in snorkeling while visiting the Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo area. Joao answered all my emails promptly and was waiting for us at the pier to take us to the boat. Our first stop was Manzanillo, where we had a lengthy, relaxed snorkel in clear water. We then moved on to Las Gatas, which... More

Joao (owner/operator) took really good care of us on our recent trip. Our group had two relatively inexperienced divers and one dive master. None of us had been in the water recently. Joao answered every question, had really good pre-dive profiles, helped when needed and generally made sure that everyone had a great experience. We loved meeting Ellie, the shop... More

Joao was very attentive, observant and considerate. I joined a couple that had been out with him a couple times already and he was great at meeting everyone's needs. Very knowledgeable about the sites, good predive instructions. Unfortunately I got seasick due to rolling swells, Joao and Captain Luis were very patient. Recommend highly.
