I have gone diving with Pako and Antonio several times and always been very impressed with their service and dedication to the sport. They offer very professional services if you are a beginner or experienced diver. Zihuatanejo is my favorite dive location. Plenty of underwater rock formations and wild life to see.

Pako is a great dive instructor. My son and his girlfriend took the pool class and did 2 45' dives the next day and enjoyed it immensely. My husband is a certified diver and has dove in Maui and Cabo and Pako is one of the best he's dove with. The dive site was great and they saw eels, sea... More

Pako was a great dive guide! We saw tons of eels and he even found 2 elusive seahorse that after diving for 25 years I had yet to see! Another treat was the group of eagle rays we snorkeled by!

Great, personalized experience with Pako. He quizzed me on the written exams and dive plans pre/post dive. The boat captain was very knowledgeable as well as he drew upon his Naval experience to help me with my knots. For the price of 4 individual dives I received my certification with requisite 5 dives. They provide water and trail mix so... More

I got my open water certificate while on vacation! Pako was wonderful and a very patient teacher. My son was able to come on two of the dives with us, threw the discovery kids program. It was an awesome experience, and I was very excited to have this experience with my son! Pako rocks!

My famly and I wanted to get scuba certified during our holiday to Zihuatanejo. On the first day Pako put everyone at ease with his professional demeanour, thorough instruction and informative briefing. We were a mixed bag of experience and comfort in the water. Our first dive was in the sheltered water off Los Gates. Although some of our group... More

My fiancee and I drove to Zihuatanejo explicitely for getting PADI-certified. We weren't disappointed at all! Pako is a very friendly, flexible, and helpful instructor, who turned our training into an exciting one. The conditions underwater in Zihuatanejo are probably not the most wonderful ones for diving; however, those conditions are even better for getting certified (for example lower visibility... More

My family and I recently returned from a vacation to Mexico. My 10 year old son completed his open water PADI certification with Pako. Pako was very easy to work with and very accommodating.

I recently went diving with Pako and Poto to complete my basic Scuba training. On day one, we did all the preliminary exercises and practices in a pool, then day two we did open dives off of a boat. Pako was absolutely the best dive instructor! He was patient, considerate, funny and just kind in general. Poto helped on the... More
