For our dives and 🤿 snorkeling excursions, we chose Dive Zihua, which turned out to be an excellent choice!

Professionalism And Safety – Priority One With Dive Zihua.

Their dive shop is within minutes walking of the Zihua Pier,
where your boat and captain awaits you. On our 2 tank dive, my wife and I were joined by the
owner at the time of our visit of Dive Zihua; Joao.

What a great guy and also a very professional instructor, whose attention to safety is unparalleled!

Stepping into his well-equipped and comfortable dive boat with his experienced captain,
we left the pier and headed out to our first dive site known as; Solitary Rock. 

On the way, Joao reviewed safety procedures for our dive, and what we could expect
to see at this very popular deep dive site.

Solitary Rock located about 1 ½ kilometers offshore, and is known as one of the
more popular dive sites in this area.
This location has an abundance of sea life including; eagle rays, 🐢 turtles,
stonefish and seahorses.

The weather was perfect, seas were calm and I was very excited
about diving for the first time in this part of Mexico!

Almost too warm with our light wet suits on!

including a beautiful eagle ray who decided to follow along with us. 
He also showed us camouflaged stone fish along the way.


With huge schools of 🐠 fish surrounding the island, this was a perfect dive
and one not to be forgotten any time soon!
