A Passion for Fun: Scuba Diving in Zihuatanejo, Mexico

By: Joao Gouveia, Owner of Dive Zihua.

I have a passion for fun, conservation, and safety – and, I want to show you that diving into the underwater world is one of the best ways to experience this magical part of the universe. It’s a thrill beyond words to encounter everything from reefs, a rock face or caverns, to amazing whale-sharks, manta rays, eagle rays, nudibranchs, sea horses, frog fish, octopi, moray eels, turtles, and sharks. Here in Zihuatanejo, we have everything you might want to see with a splash of humor and some fun surprises along the way.

Dive Zihua is PADI certified (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) scuba diving and snorkeling shop, located in the heart of downtown Zihuatanejo–just a block from the ocean. We are an experienced PADI Dive Resort with an atmosphere you would expect to find in a small dive operation. We not only have a passion for diving, but we have also been involved with conservation efforts for years. It’s our philosophy to offer safe and fun experiences combined with an appreciation of the aquatic environment.

I was born in Portugal and I’ve been diving for years in various places around the world. But, I have a passion for Zihuatanejo-and I want to share it with you. Come and visit us when you are in town. We offer both diving and snorkeling tours. We also rent equipment to certified dive masters and instructors, and provide internships for students.
