A little more expensive than "tour bus dive shops" but worth it for the personalized attention and service. Equipment was in good condition, divemaster Leslie was experienced in diving (10+ years in Vallarta exclusively) and knowledgeable about all kinds of details of the area. Since you're generally diving directly with the owner in smaller groups, there's lots of flexibility depending... More

Leslie was awesome, we had 4 adults and our 5 year old, on a snorkeling trip, I was the only diver on my discovery dive and I am now hooked. Thanks to her attention to detail and her genuine safety precautions, the trip was a huge success. My daughter got sea sick on the boat and we bailed for land... More

We booked three days of diving with Leslie Cruz. First, it was great having a private divemaster and boat. We stayed in the old center of PV. Rather than us having to take a taxi to the marina, Leslie was able to pick us up at Los Muertos Pier which was only a 10 minute walk from our hotel. If... More

Leslie is such a great person who wants you to have a great experience while diving! She was very communicative throughout the booking process and went above and beyond to be sure that we knew where to meet and when, and what to bring. She helped us arrange for wet suits and BCDs, and we were able to go to... More

Our daughter, Jen, recently did a 2 tank dive with Leslie and absolutely loved it! From the very first contact with Leslie it was obvious she was only interested in giving a safe and fun dive in Puerto Vallarta.
