Just a quick note to thank you and your team for an unforgettable experience. My son, Daniel, and I took the SCUBA certification program over the last couple of weeks. We had great instruction, first from Erik Sanchez for the pool and theory training, then from Roger Peralta for our 4 open water dives. They both were exceptional teachers, with much experience, energy, and enthusiasm! Thanks again, and see you next year.

Hello to Angel and Fernando. Went diveing with them, awsome, want to go again! Jan 20/25 2007 was a great week. Thanks guys!
Ken, Victoria B.C. Canada
Hi, I would like to commend you all on the service that you provide. I certified as an open water diver with you on 11 jan. My resort instructor (jens @ Decameron) was not only an excellent instructor - he is an asset to Valarta Adventures, then there is Hugo - looks so young but what a guy - natural instructor/assertive/friendly and above all made you feel safe. After qualifying booked 2 further dives at Marietus and my guide Todd once again excellent so were the rest of the crew - over all I would say Vallarta Adventures offer an excellent package for everyone - in my opinion the main asset of Vallarta Adventures is the staff - every member of staff, all levels were true professionals. Once again THANK YOU
Steve & Diane Dodd

Because of Vallarta Adventure's skilled staff, I fulfilled my dream of scuba diving. My scuba instructor, Juan Carlos, gave me the confidence to complete a dive in beautiful Las Caletas.
Candice, Chicago, IL
I always felt safe, comfortable and had tons of fun! Your guides are professional and attentive, especially the dive boat people. I can't say enough wonderful things about them!
From the in-pool instruction to the boat trip and dive off the Marietas Islands with Dive Master Connie, the whole experience was magnificent and has convinced me to explore this marvelous sport even further. Thanks to your staff for opening my eyes!
I went on 2 dives at Caletas and Marietas. My wife joined me for the trip to Marietas. The level of service and professionalism displayed by your company and its staff was exceptional.
I wanted to send a special thanks to Andy (the happiest divemaster in the world) for the absolutely outstanding dives that my husband and I had with him at El Morro. These dives were truly dives of a lifetime and Andy did a fabulous job.
