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.

My husband dove 3 dives a day on 3 different days and had a great time. It was just himself, a friend and the dive instructor on all 3 days, so it was very individualized and no big groups. The seas can be a little rough so bring gravol just in case. He saw a whale, sea horses, sea urchins,... More

Joao was in excellent email contact with us throughout the process. We met him on the pier and our equipment was already on the boat. We did a 2 tank dive and were pleased with the diversity of scenery that each dive location had to offer. Joao provided a helpful briefing each time. There was water and snacks on board... More

I had the best dives ever with Joao although we were dealing with hurricane influence. A great dive master and a nice person with great ecological experience and information to share.

Highly recommended!!! It was an amazing certification process; a lot of fish during the immersions; safety always a priority for the dive master. Joao, thank you very much for everything. Don’t forget the camera!!!

There were 7 of us snorkelers between ages of 8 and 65 on this trip, along with 3 others who came to dive. Joao took us to locations where both divers and snorkelers were happy. He brought the right snacks and plenty of water, and he established a very comfortable feeling among all of us on the boat. I would... More

Most of all I appreciate Joao's ecological awareness. He runs a good shop giving divers a beautiful diving experience while being mindful of the environment. Thanks for another beautiful experience. So wonderful to see... More

Best choice we could have made, Goao ran a professional fun trip that we will not hesitate to book again. The boat, locations, equipment and crew all made for a very enjoyable safe time on the water! Keep up the great work!

Realistically, if you're diving you're having a great time. Your review will be great. That said, these guys exceeded our expectations by providing excellent service and making sure we felt 100% comfortable. Not once did we feel concerned. Paco has thousands of dives under his belt which was very comforting. We loved it so much we decided to go back... More
