If you are certified and your certification is up to date yes. If not speak to Thierry Durand at Carlos Scuba, Las Gatas beach and see what he says. He has the best dive operation there.

Where you are staying doesn't matter - so email him or call and he will make arrangements. You'll need to take a cab to the main pier in Zihua and he will pick you up there - You will enjoy diving with him!
