“scuba diving in Puerto Vallarta”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

The boat was very comfortable with beverages and good entertainment on the way to a fabulous lunch/assorted beverages. The location was amazingly beautiful at John Hustons former house. We went scuba diving in the morning, water access was the easiest we have ever experienced, good equipment. There was a great variety of fish including Morey eels, turtles, a beautiful sea horse, the dive master was very knowledgeable with a great eye for nature. Diving with the sea lions was fabulous, we had a group hug, I removed my regulator and gave her a kiss, their training is amazing, we all felt very safe. This was by far our best excursion

“First dive ever, amazing!”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Scuba diving with adventure vallarta for my first time was an amazing experience. I never, ever went diving before and they were very thorough on there traing and instruction. However I did take the first lesson in the pool few day before we went on our dive and that was very helpful. I definitely would pay extra to go scuba diving on the M island advanture and also go to the private beach too is gorgeous and you wont regret it.

“Scuba Diving”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

My two boys went scuba diving with Vallarta Adventures and Hugo was their instructor in Las Caletas. They absolutely loved it and can't wait to go diving again. They were the only two guests with Hugo which was very nice with it being their first time diving. I'm very happy that my kids had an enjoyable and safe experience.

“PV Dive”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

We had a great time. Was on the Carnival Miracle and in port for 2 days. Day 2 we dove. Everyone on the staff was professional and fun. Charly was our dive master and he was excellent. He was professional, friendly and easy to talk to. Answered all of our questions. Made sure we were briefed. Ensured that everyone had the appropriate weights and other dive equipment. Our captain even spotted whales while driving out to Las Marietas island so he stopped and got us all a closer view and we did some whale watching! The staff on board was hilarious and even put on a humorous lip singing show for us as we ended the trip. The food was simple but good. The banana bread was excellent! The drinks were strong (after the dive). Overall, a very great time!
