From check in to offloading it was superbly managed. Excellent equipment, attentive dive leader in Fernando, who fixed my gear underwater, and even loaned me his own camera battery when mine was dead. Food and drink on board was plentiful and good, and the entire crew entertained on the way back to harbor. The diving was cold for me at... More

It started with a training lesson in the pool at the resort. I was impressed by the professionalism and sincerity of Antonio, taking me through all the steps and ensuring I understood everything. This went well and even though I am a capable swimmer and snorkeler I appreciate the extra confidence this gave me. The next part was the tour... More

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... More

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.
