We've been diving with Vallarta Adventures several times. This two-tank morning dive to El Morro was fantastic! We experienced calm water, very little current, and over 80-ft visibility. Our guide, Israel, is extremely knowledgeable, patient, focused on safety and customer experience. He took excellent care of the equipment, prepped us for each dive, and made sure to point out interesting... More

I dived with Scuba Diving Adventures, booked through Israel at Riu Palace Pacifico. I would definitely recommend the professional service provided. I thoroughly enjoyed the diving especially the night dive at Los Arcos.

Water wasn't the warmest, and the visibility was the greatest in the Pacific Ocean, at times you could only see about 10 feet in front of you.

I went on 3 dives with Vallarta Adventures. We went to Los Mariattas and I did a 2 tank dive. I am a beginner diver (< 10 dives) and the instruction was good, complete and helpful. The visibility was only fair which made it hard to see fish at a distance. The 2nd dive was more interesting since we got... More

This was my first experience diving and I went with my girlfriend and another couple. We took our class at our hotel and booked our trip. Our guide for the day was Juli Estrada. He helped ease the nerves of those who were uncomfortable. Did all the equipment checks and made sure all was well. We dove in and with... More

My first 2 tank dive was with boat #4, the crew Director was Julio, who is a very fun guy along with Luis! My two dives were with only other two divers, one of them very inexperienced. That could've potentially ruin the dives but, Dive Master Charlie did an excellent job accommodating the different divers' skills and experience. There was... More

From check in to offloading it was superbly managed. Excellent equipment, attentive dive leader in Fernando, who fixed my gear underwater, and even loaned me his own camera battery when mine was dead. Food and drink on board was plentiful and good, and the entire crew entertained on the way back to harbor. The diving was cold for me at... More
