My husband talked me into diving, and if it wasn't for Fernando holding my hand all the way, I would have chickened out. Many thanks Fernando for all your help, and because of you, next time I'm in Manzanillo, I'll get certified to dive. I never thought it would be so much fun, but the PADI Discover Scuba course made my vacation.
Many thanks for your staff's professionalism and patience when doing the open water certifications for my two children. Though my son is a fish, it took a little longer for my daughter, and your patience and knowledge helped her through it. I am really looking forward to coming back and diving with you when my kids get their Christmas break.
All my life I've always wanted to see seahorses, and you showed me 5 of them! The turtle was also cool. For my first dive, I really saw a lot and Fernando's good eye made me really enjoy the dive. Thanks; I'll definitely be back!
I did a resort course somewhere else, then I took your Discover Scuba. Believe me, there is a difference! Experience of the instructor makes all the difference in wasting your money or having a fabulous time. I wish that I hadn't waited so long to Discover Scuba Diving in Manzanillo. I was impressed with the thoroughness of the PADI course and the knowledge of your instructor, Fernando. He clearly loves what he does, and I will be back to get certified.
Why did I ever wait so long to try diving? Manzanillo has more fish than I've ever seen, and the spotted eagle rays were the highlight of my vacation! Also, thanks for reaching me about male seahorses getting pregnant. That is really awesome!
I was recently in your dive shop gettng some flipper straps and the guys were real helpful and informative. We will be back for 5th of May so will stop in. Hope to do some diving soon........thanks!
Richard, thanks for your help and patience. I always wanted to try diving, but was very nervous about breathing underwater. You gave me the time I needed in the pool to feel comfortable. I never felt rushed, and when I was through with your class I knew I was ready to GO DOWN! I felt very safe with you.
Thought I would send you an email and thank you and your group for a few fun dives while in Manzanillo last week. Lee and I appreciated your help and assistance- good equipment and people!
I had a look around your web site "gomanzanillo"--good info ! Took a bus down to La Posada Hotel my last day and looked around--nice spot for sure. I grabbed some info and hopefully will be back shortly to stay for awhile.
Thanks again for everything--had a great time!

Thank you so much for your letter. I am truly glad to know that the whales and dolphins in your area are protected. Also thank you for the additional suggestions for things to do, other than diving, since I know that diving is your main source of income.
Thanks go to you and the rest of your shop for outfitting us and assisting us with the certification.
We get to Manzanillo once/year or so and will be by the shop again. If we can refer others, we will.
"Thanks again for your significant part in our underwater engagement. Your photos were great and I hope those I left for you were pleasing.
"We look forward to our next trip and will call well in advance to schedule some SCUBA and some social time.
"Best wishes to you, Carlos, Fernando and the crew. You're the best!

Thank you and your entire staff for a wonderful impromptu Snorkeling trip last Wednesday in Manzanillo. We were the couple of veterinarians, Bob and Sandy, along with Ed and Elaine from the Norwegian Star. We had a great time. You are fortunate to have coral reefs so close by and even a wreck within snorkeling distance. Thanks to everyone for giving us a great experience. We will certainly look you up when we come down again. Feel free to ask any veterinary questions if need be by e-mail and I will try to help out.
Hola and hope all is well with the crew at
Linda and Harry Smith
