Jose Armando Perez Otegui was a very pleasant owner and willing to work
with you.  The dive master was very safety conscious and
knowledgeable.(Nacho)  The boat captain was always on the lookout for you
for humpback whales, dolphins and turtles.( of  which we saw many) We had a
huge all black manta stay with us on our entire dive one day! The boat was
clean and well kept and the lunch/snacks were great! We had a Marine
biologist ( very well known) dive with us 2 of the days. With many dive
operations to choose from, this says a lot that she chose Vallarta Under
Sea! Great experience! Will go back and dive with them again in the future!
Also, it was vey cool to hear the male humpback whales singing during most
of our dives!
