The dives were only "good" due to the fact that Zihuatanejo was just coming off a series of storms and the visibility was just okay. Regardless, my wife and I still had a GREAT time and this was due to the fact that Joao is an excellent dive master. We had waited the whole week to dive and then finally... More

I would like to thank Joao for 2 great drives. Ended up going out with Joao solo. As a beginner diver I appreciated the time he took with me, to make me comfortable. He took me to two great drive sites. Saw an amazing amount of marine life in both dives. Rented his camera and ended up with many great... More

Thank you, Joao! My first impression of Zihuatanejo as a diving destination was that of a nice and calm place to dive, but this time, with you as Dive Master left a mark...it's almost unbelievable how many things I missed on my first dive here almost 2 years ago! Thank you for everything. The customer service is great! you can... More

I just wanted to say thanks again for the fun dives (see your facebook timeline Dec 12th 2013) I recently went to Cancun and went diving April 2014. While comparing your dive services to what I experienced in Cancun, it became very evident to me how excellent you guys are! Cancun was ok, but I really enjoyed diving with you... More

Thanks Joao! This was our second consecutive year diving with Joao and Dive Zihua. Joao's knowledge of the area and underwater sea-life is superb! His equipment, safety gear and attention to detail makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. If anyone has the chance to dive in Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo I highly recommend going with Dive Zihua!

Joao runs a fantastic instruction program perfect for beginners or long time divers looking to refresh their skills. He is a wonderful teacher communicating concepts and skills in a very easy to understand, comfortable manner. I hope to have the change to return to Zihua to dive with them again.

Between the two of us, we have done many dives all over the globe. As such, we expected nothing special from this shop. However, we enjoyed not only the loveliest dives in the region, but also the best service that either of us had ever received from a dive shop. There was a ton of knowledge about the sites, as...
