Went on the discover scuba tour last week. The company is very professional and timely. (provided all equipment including wetsuits!) However, I would caution that this tour is better suited for certified divers and NOT for beginners. The introductory class was conducted in the ocean versus a pool which may sound like a great idea, however, depending on the day,... More

Just dove with Hector yesterday and this outfit. Boat crew was very warm and knowledgeable about dive sites. Actual dive shop could be larger with more retail space. Did Los Arcos as an introductory dive as I've never used them before and wanted an easy, "getting to know you" dive before committing to more business. I will be diving again... More

First of all, small groups. They never have more than 15 passengers on a boat. (If you've been on one of the giant 150 person boats you'll understand how important this is) Second, skilled and knowledgeable crew. My divemaster Carlos is an ex marine mammal veterinarian with tremendous knowledge of the dive spots and all the wildlife. Martin is a... More

We have done most of our snorkeling in the Caribbean, and Hawaii. My wife insisted that we go snorkeling here, but I was concerned that it would be disappointing because of the comparisons I had heard before. I was wrong. The dolphins accompanying us on our way out were beautiful. Snorkeling around Las Islas Marietas was great. I'd never seen... More

We booked a two days of diving with Vallarta Undersea, but after our experience with Hector, Carlos and Martin we dropped in for a third. Carlos has some great animal training stories and Hector can tell you about checking cruise ship bow thrusters on the boat ride. After watching Hector manage a blown tank o-ring at depth, you get a... More

Hector, Carlos and Captain Martin were awesome!! My wife, 14 and 15 year old daughters had a wonderful experience with them. They were caring, friendly, and patient with our first dive adventure. Would highly recommend!!

Dive operators cannot control the weather, the ocean, the sea life, and many times even the divers. What they can control is their reaction to all. These guys are all about service. They use small boats with a small parties and plenty of help. We were four in all with a very inexperienced diver (1st dive after certification). Carlos took... More
