Owner description: Dive Zihua is located at the heart of downtown Zihuatanejo. We are a new PADI dive centre with an atmosphere you would expect to find in a small dive operation. We not only have a passion for diving but all of our staff have been involved with conservation efforts for years and it is our philosophy to bring safe fun diving with an appreciation to the aquatic environment.We offer both diving and snorkeling tours through our full service dive facility. Our shop is very easy to find we are one block from the beach in between restaurant Murmullo and Bar Zorro's.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

We dove 3 days in Zihua. It was a great experience! The team is extremely professional and does every thing to make your dives as pleasureful as possible. Very relaxed. Their service is very great. Beautifull sea live, we saw plenty of turtles and rays. Definitely best dive shop in the area!

Thank you for the great review! We love when people come and dive for multiple days because it allows us the opportunity to show more of the area. We were also happy to offer you a Night Dive, which is amazing because you get to see all the different species that are too shy to come out during the day.

“Had to Go Back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

I had such an amazing experience in October with the team at Dive Zihua, that I slipped in a quick trip back in January. The diving in this area is incredibly beautiful for divers of all levels and the team at Dive Zihua are able to customize a dive experience to satisfy! Had never heard whales underwater. Thank you Joao, Gemma, Sonja and Luis for rocking my world! Every time I think about it now, a knowing smile emanates. Can't wait to go back. Found my sweet spot and my dive shop.

“Spectacular Diving, Fantastic Crew”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

My friend and I recently returned from a long weekend in Zihuat, the majority of which was spent underwater with Joao and Gemma. What a magnificent experience! Eagle rays, sea turtles, nudibranchs - we saw it all. The crew at Dive Zihua, including Luis (my savior during a bout of seasick), are both consummate professionals and great good fun. Highly recommended, and looking forward to a repeat visit in late spring.

“Amazing diving experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

I went diving with Joao and Gemma for three days, and could not have had a better experience! Gemma was my dive master and she was a great teacher. We saw amazing sea life and everyone was super friendly and professional. Dive Zihua is a great dive shop and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to dive in Zihuatanejo.

Thanks so much for the nice review. Both of our Instructors are here to provide the best services possible. We were happy to have had the pleasure of diving with your group and getting to see so much sea life, including sea turtles and sting rays.

Please let your friends know about us, even if they don't dive, we can still show them the beauty of Zihuatanejo.

Thank you for the review. This was an excellent dive to Morros de Potosi where we were lucky enough to see the resident White-tipped Reef Shark and a number of turtles.
We are glad you choose to dive with us and hope to see you again next year!
