The shop owner was home ill so we went diving with his assistant, Arturo, who was easygoing and clearly competent. Although we didn't see some of the highlights noted in other reviews, trunkfish, scallops, stonefish, morays, lobster, pufferfish, and lots of schooling fish of many sorts made our two dives worthwhile.

Lorenzo runs this friendly company from Hotel Innes, at a very conveninient point in the main strip of Puerto Escondidos. An Italian transplant, and gentle soul, he shared his love of the sea and it's beauty with us today. Though both advanced open water PADI divers, today we experienced, in a few hours, things we have never seen in 15... More

Had a great dive there. Vis was not great but they can't control that. Gear and DM were great. Fun good times.

We walked in and spoke to Lorenzo, the owner of the spot, looking for a dive for our recently-certified young teens. He was helpful and amazingly honest. He waited to get the latest info from his dive guides out in the water and at the end he suggested we not do the dive since the viz was limited and the... More

It all started with meeting Lorenzo at his shop to ensure we were going to get the type of dive we wanted. We were assured that we would go slow to try to get some photography done. We booked the dive to roca blanco and waited for the day to come.we met at the set time, all equipment was there... More

I did a dive with Lorenzo in January which I really enjoyed. Being only a certified Scuba Diver, I came back to Puerto Escondido and finished my Open Water Qualification. I had to complete the last 2 chapters of my online learning - which had expired. Lorenzo was very helpful with this problem and he let me borrow the PADI... More

There are three SCUBA operators in PE. I dove with them all but did not take any certification courses from any of them. The personnel at all three shops were friendly, but Deep Blue Dive offered the best boat, the best equipment, the most interesting dives. I would recommend this operator.
