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

Thank you for your kind words! I hope that the footage turned out ok for you. Let me know how the editing went and share it on our Facebook page if you like! Just a correction so people don't get the wrong idea... The shallow dive where you did the refresher was around 15'ft and I'm actually a full PADI... 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!

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

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!
