“Overpriced!!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012 via mobile

Punta Mita Expeditions controls all beach gear rentals at St Regis beach and their prices are outrageous . More expensive than anywhere in Hawaii or even French Riviera.
We had better experience at Four Seasons Punta Mita getting same staff from hotel for free.

Frank,

thank you very much for your opinion, we highly appreciate every comment from all the Punta Mita visitors. Our goal at the St Regis Resort and the Punta Mita development in general is to provide the best experience we can through the highest quality equipment available in the market according to a St Regis guest expectations, and we understand that this could be reflected on the price, but always keeping them on in the same range for all Punta Mita development beach clubs.
We are very sorry that you find our prices too high, again our goal is to provide a unique experience, and we look forward to see you again in Punta Mita.

Best regards,

Nicolas Melani

“Safe, Professional and Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

Our group of 10 divers had varying dive experience, from me (who hasn't been diving in 10 years) to two Dive Masters, and everyone had a great time. I was a bit nervous, but from the moment we arrived felt that we were in good hands. Omar and Adam were great guides and although the water was pretty murky, they pointed out a lot of wildlife. I was very appreciative of the extra attention, and patience, in helping me equalize slowly on both dives. I highly recommend them for diving in the Puerto Vallarta/Sayulita area.

“professional and conscientious. great dive experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

Omar was my dive master and it was just the two of us. He took great shots on our two dives, had a keen eye for spotting the critters below, and was overall a real pro and very nice guy. On the office side, Omar (another Omar) and Nicolas were also very friendly and attentive, and took good care of logistics. The boat crew was also great and took good care of my family snorkeling above, even though the water was freezing : ) Thanks, guys!

“These guys were the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Javier and the gang at Punta Mita Expeditions really took care of us on our trip to Punta Mita. We did standup paddle boarding and it was perfect. When we mentioned we might be interested in real estate they recommended someone fantastic and then even gave us a free ride to the airport after our stay. They were just completing a surf shop and beach club when we left. Next time we want to go out on a boat and try some of their other offerings.

“Very professional, personal and fun experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

We went to Mexico on a 5 day trip. We wanted to take our PADI Open Diver certificate while there. Our first interaction via email was very promising with very fast responses to all our queries and a very accommodating and personalized schedule. Once on site, both the owner and the dive masters proved to be fantastic individuals, very professional, friendly and reassuring. While very excited, we were slightly intimidated by the concept of diving, a feeling all the staff handled perfectly leaving us only with eagerness to discover this new world. Our 4 dives were in the most beautiful surroundings. I thought that seeing rays come your way in majestic slow motion or being in the middle of a fish "well", one thousand colors rotating around you, was something one could only witness on TV or in dreams. Omar, our dive master for that dive, led us there to our utmost delight, with an inspiring passion for the underwater world.
All in all, our experience could have not been better, and we very highly recommend Punta Mita Expeditions
