it was an amazing experience! First time diving, Mario was really helpful with all the information needed, he sent a taxi, helped filled up the info etc. The crew of the SDA is really amazing: the captain, the 2 divers and the snorkeling guy are all really nice and well mannered, they make you feel in a family. They speak all a good level of English, they are competent and really oriented to take care of the guests. The dives were fantastic, I saw sea horses and octopus, plenty of fishes and lovely area around La Roqueta island. The water was now (November) at 29 degrees Celsium: I mean, fantastic!! The whole experience was really good, highly recommended!

My boyfriend and I got our open water certification with Mario. The experience was perfect for learning how to dive! Mario was an amazing instructor, knows his stuff and explains things in a way so you can easily remember, he also practiced exercises multiple times so they really sank in. We saw turtles, starfish, a seahorse, a stingray, and a big assortment of colorful fish among the lovely rocks in the bay.

The office is located below an abandoned hotel and is really cool! Everyday we had other guests on the bot with us and had a good atmosphere with them and the crew.

My boyfriend is Swiss and Mexican and I’m American and we had our lessons given to us in English, Spanish, and Swiss German.

If you want to learn how to dive in the area this is the place for you! We can’t wait to go explore with our new certifications!

Since we just missed the busy season (Easter), my brother and I were treated to our own personal dive by Paolo and Captain Luis. My brother and I have dived many times but aren’t certified but we’re given really easy instructions by Paolo. At first he was shy but once he saw how much my brother and I joked around we had a great time. We had two separate dives along La Roqueta island - one along the artificial reefs and the other along the sides of the island. We were able to see octopus, fish of all colors and sizes and even swam with a turtle. Since my underwater camera wasn’t working they allow you to rent a GoPro for under $30 USD. They even took us by the Lady Guadalupe underwater shrine and explained more about the celebrations and local beliefs tied to it. We really enjoyed our time and recommend it. The SDA office itself is located below a grand hotel that has since been abandoned. Thank you SDA, Paolo and Luis for a memorable experience. 😁

We are a bunch of Swiss soldier friends (5) that decided to come down to Acapulco and certify for the SSI OPEN WATER + NITROX courses. Mario the main instructor was great at introducing us to this magical underworld. Besides we were able to learn everything about diving in our mother tongue (Swiizerdütsch!). I highly recommend this very professional institute with very qualified personnel.

We were pretty excited to go, but pretty apprehensive at the same time, since we have never dived a pool before- nevermind open water!

We took a local cab in to save a few bucks, but I would advise getting the team to pick you up... Once at the dive office, you’d never know it-the hotel it operates out of is shut down and looks abandoned.

The instructor gave us a bunch of instructions at the beginning (20min), ALL of which we needed, so pay attention!

When we got to the site, our guide (even though he didn’t speak much English) was VERY helpful! He babysat us through all of our steps and took extra time with us if we needed it.

Our first dive was about 5m down. We saw a lot of sea life including a seahorse which were told is very rare to see at all.

I experienced a bit of discomfort with the pressure in my ears, but using the instructions from the beginning, I was able to make everything right again.

Our first dive was about 30min, and when we got back to the top, I experienced motion sickness (which seems to follow me everywhere-no relation to this dive). We didn’t do the second dive. But I would have loved to!

I would do this again and recommend it to anyone who is able to swim! Amazing!

Thank you and your team!
