I was looking forward to diving acapulco in the famed area of La Roquetta Island. The area is a preserve but local laws are not enforced. Proof is in the long fishing net that we cut up as we desscended to depth. Unfortunately because of poverty I can not blame those trying to eat. As far as the diving is concerned the visibility on both dives were terrible (less than 5 ft.) while decending but at depth of 35+ ft things cleared up a little to about 15 ft. Marine life is vastly different in the pacific waters but the area that was protected did not boast much of anything.
The dive operation of Scuba Diving Acapulco (original name) was pretty good. While there was not much discussion of pre-dive planning until it was prompted, the dive master understood safety and new the lost buddy procedure. This was confirmed when we lost each other while decending on the second dive. I brought my family aboard this very spacious boat so they can experience what I do while diving and they also went snorkeling. The snorkel guide was excellent and brought marine life to them. Excellent experience.
Overall the diving was fair but the operation was pretty good. They were nice and accomodating. They offered sandwiches and drinks throught the trip. I don't think I would dive there again but if I did I would revisit this operation and maybe try different sites like a wreck.
