Great Snorkel Trip!
Aug. 2021
Just had a great snorkel session with them. Great team, knew the spots to go to given the conditions early in the morning, still had perfect diving! They know when to have fun and when there is no time for messing around, just what we wanted. We will return to do a dive course with them next year! Highly recommend and trust!

We communicated with Mareo by phone a couple days after we arrived in Acapulco about details of this tour. He shared with us that, for various reasons, the water quality can very day-to-day and it was difficult to predict how clear it would be on our scheduled mid week tour. We elected to Just Do It and take our chances. We were glad we did!

The driver picked us up at our resort and took us across town to the Swiss Divers Association port or camp. It’s an old abandoned hotel that’s on the bay and has a dock that makes a good base for such an operation. The hotel was one of the finest and most exclusive in Acapulco in its day.

The water was really clear and we saw lots of cool fish! We have been on other snorkeling tours in the Caribbean and other Mexican coast cities and this was one of the best. The water at the two dive spots was calm and comfortable and the boat did not rock and pitch as much when traveling around the bay as some other similar tours we’ve been on. The crew took good care of us as we were the only ones on the boat and tour this particular day. I would recommend this snorkel adventure to anyone in relatively good health and ability whether you have ever snorkeled or not. The most strenuous part was getting back into the boat from the water as there is no ladder to either enter or exit the water from.

Amazing snorkeling trip!
Jan. 2019 • Friends
I had heard that snorkeling wasn't very good in Acapulco, but SDA put that myth to rest! Paulo and George were fabulous! They went out of their way to give us experiences that we wouldn't have had without them. Our small group was conducive to a very personalized experience that we wouldn't have had with some of the bigger operators. The guide's knowledge about the sea life was incredible and I so appreciated that he wove in environmental impacts. I'm so glad we decided to take this tour! It turned out to be my favorite of the entire trip! Thanks SDA!

The snorkeling guide went out of his way to show us different fish and objects while snorkeling. The driver to get us there took a little time to give us a tour of the venue where the snorkeling shop was after we got back. Some cool history about Acapulco! Very cool!

Lovely morning
Lovely morning snorkeling the island. Fish were stunning and the water warm. Chris did a great job with the boat making sure we got as close as possible to the Island. Rosa was warm and helpful and she was very good with the young children in our small group ... the squeals of delight would have been heard throughout the Bay. Mario was a great driver to and from our hotel and entertained us with stories about the town. Fantastic day out.

Great excursion
We booked this excursion through Sunwing. The sea was calm so the water was relatively clear in most spots. Saw King angel fish for the first time. Also saw a sea turtle up close! Our overall impression of SDA's operation is very proffessional. The crew were very friendly and helpful. We really appreciated the relaxed atmosphere. We had plenty of time to explore. After first swim we went to an isolated beach to warm up. Then after swim back to boat we had a little lunch. Then a third swim past the little beach where we saw the turtle and sea cucumbers, blenny, goby etc. etc.! Special thanks to Rosa our guide. She was very patient and helpful. Really worked hard to make our experience enriching.

Snorkeling
Wonderful snorkel! Started with being picked up at our hotel by Jack--he was great and very informative about Acapulco.
Our snorkel guy was Pollo--very nice young man. Jorge was boat captain.
While snorkeling, we started hearing whale sounds--amazing. Came back on board and captain took us out and we spotted whale!
Saw lots of fish, water was perfect and Pollo kept us safe --made sure we stayed away from current and rocks.
Highly recommend! Very nice employees!!

Great Excursion
Jan. 2019 • Family
We just did this trip yesterday, and had a great time. They did a very good job of catering to the non-divers who want to snorkel (like us) as well as experienced scuba divers. The scenery is great, but the real gem is the staff - very kind people who are legitimately focused on making sure everyone has a great time.

One tip: if you're going there on your own, use Hotel Caleta as the destination. The Swiss Divers association is located in the basement of this (abandoned) hotel.

Great little snorkel trip
Well worth the money. Picked up from the hotel on time and taken to the dive shop which has an incredible setting underneath a recently closed down fancy hotel.

The staff were friendly and professional, working in the Oil and Gas industry I specifically noticed the safety brief given by the dive leader about getting on and off the boat.

The captain was very friendly and the snorkeling is pretty good.

Overall a solid half day out on and in the water.
