We booked the whale shark adventure with Arturo and Delfin diving and it was one of the most amazing experiences, ever, to be in the water with these enormous creatures. They truly are "gentle giants" and it's really beautiful and peaceful to be in the water with them. We were allowed to enter the water three times, which was fabulous.... More

What can I say about Delfin Diving?????? ARTURO. Arturo is such a kind and knowledgeable guide. We felt as though he was a family member because of the way we were treated. We had the pleasure of going out with him twice, each time we had an amazing captain as well. The dive was wonderful, we were not rushed to... More

Delfin Diving is amazing. Such a professional and informative staff! The MUSA sculptures as well as the natural coral and fish were so beautiful. Everything looked exactly like it does in the photos of the website--astounding. The price is extremely reasonable. I cannot wait to come back next year. There are a lot of so-called diving businesses on the island,... More

We had a large group that book 2 of Arturo's boats. The crew was fantastic and the Whale Shark encounters where off the chart. The crew was very attentive and was great at finding good spots for us to get in the water. I would definitely recommend Delfin Diving for future Whale Shark adventures. I couldn't have asked for more.
