Was in Zihua for a wedding and was able to free up some time to get in the water. I called Joao at 5pm on Monday night, and was in the water with him on Tuesday morning. Experienced some great marine life with good company. Joao and crew were great and hope to log more dives with him on my... More

Our group (7 people) had a great time with Joao and crew. We did a quick snorkeling trip to the small beach just south of Zihua bay. Saw eels, hundreds of fish (I liked the baby ones with the blue iridescent spots) and a spiny starfish. Remind Joao to bring the picture card that helps you identify fish... if you... More

Joao has excellent english skills along with the fact that his native language is portugese and he speaks excellent spanish. He is a skilled and easy communicator that impressed from the initial contact of tourists (us) asking for directions to the detailed safety drills for the discovery package that 5 of us signed up for. All of us felt great... More

Joao took a group of 5 of us to Morros de Potosi - definitely worth the longer trip out there - and we all had great dives (saw a shark, a few eels, and a couple rays). Was very clear that Joao knew the dive sites incredibly well and he simply has a knack for looking in the crevices where... More

Thanks so much to Joao and rest of the crew at Dive Zihua for a great trip to Morros de Potosi. We enjoyed the scenic ride out to the rocky islands and back, two beautiful dives, and birdwatching on the boat in between. The seas were a little rough and the vis wasn't great due to recent cold currents, but... More

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!
