Huatulco Dive Center is a fantastic center to go diving with, regardless of your level of experience. Luca, Ana and all the team are absolutely wonderful. We did our PADI Rescue Diver course with Luca, and we could not have dreamed of a better instructor. He is experienced, knowledgeable, patient, and very calm. If you are looking for a PADI... More

Just Get Onboard with HDC! My wife and I and our two adult children spent a marvelous week in the Huatulco area in early March. A true highlight of the trip was spending the day boating, scuba diving, snorkeling and enjoying an all-around wonderful time with Huatulco Dive Center on an excursion they call "The Bays Tour". I am a... More

Overall I was pretty happy with this shop. However I do have one complaint. As a fully certified open water diver I don't want to dive with discovery divers that have only watched a 20 minute video. I pay to have a dive master/guide on my dive and do that because I feel like that is the safest way to... More

They were wonderful to work with. Our boys finished their exam and open water dives to get certified. Luca and David did a great job with them. Then we all dove together. I would highly recommend them if you want to dive in Huatulco.

I went diving a few times with Huatulco Dive Center while I was in town. Their boat was super clean, new and very nice. The staff was amazing! SO friendly and so helpful. Everything from the booking to the diving was above expectations. I also really appreciated that they separated divers based on experience level. As a very advanced diver,... More

I found this dive centre on TripAdvisor and with both of my daughters wanting to get certified emailed. Ana was incredibly helpful and arranged everything prior to our trip. Once there David was incredibly patient and helpful with both of my daughters and I had no hesitation in letting them go off on their own as I went back to... More

Enjoyed two great dives with Luca on a short boat drive from the harbour to a pinnacle and wall dive. There was a bit of surge so the visibility wasn't great but we still had a great dive as Luca has a very good eye! We spotted eels, gobies, octopus, rays, nudibranch and lots more. I hadn't dived in a... More

Had the opportunity in February to do 6 dives with HDC. Unfortunately, conditions such as visibility weren't the greatest. However, the professionalism and friendliness of the the folks at HDC more than made up for it. I am a very inexperienced diver. The folks made sure that I felt comfortable with everything. All of the folks, Ana, Luca and David... More
