Discovery Dive was a fantastic addition to the trip!
Jun 2021
As my first diving experience, this was far beyond my expectations.

Roberta communicated clearly and quickly.

Stephanes instruction was intensely safety focused. He has a kind an experienced manner - and a great sense of humor. He was extremely patient with each of us as we learned skills and practiced with the equipment. As for the equipment - the shop was great - with clean and well kept gear.

It was such a good experience - we did it again later in the week...

I would highly recommend Sayulita Entourage!

Jamie was awesome... and the French guy was cool too.
Mar 2021 • Friends
I did the discovery dive since I’m not certified and loved it. The entire crew were great. Jamie was my instructor/guide and she was amazing. She took me to a pool at first and taught me the things I would need to know for our dive. A short time later we were cruising out to the dive site watching whales and dolphins. Before and after we got into the water Jamie was very attentive to detail and made me feel like I was in good hands. During the dive she pointed out multiple sea creatures I would have missed while frequently checking my air. The experience was something that I will never forget and it made me want to get certified. After talking with Jamie to see what it entailed it was a no brainer. Planning to go back and get certified, hopefully by Jamie.

When life gives you the best scuba experience
Mar 2021
WOWOWOWOWOWOWOW. Holy guacamole sauce. Alright, so, my buddy came in from San Francisco for the week and was like hey JL, want to go get certified to go scuba diving? I paused...then asked "Does a one footed duck swim in circles?" (yes). I reached out to Roberta and she was so sweet and flexible even though I was booking a class last minute. I didn't really know what I was getting myself into and had to speed through the online courses (I don't recommend speeding through, TAKE YOUR TIME).

Day 1. Jamie was our scuba expert master extraordinaire and she was incredible. We went to the pool and went over all the gear and technical terms for the dive. Suited up and swam around a bit. Made sure we were comfortable, went through hand signals, constantly made sure that we were good and having a good time and that we were understanding the material and the information she was imparting to us. After a few hours, homeboy and I felt comfortable and we changed and went home. We studied that night awaiting the next days adventure...

Day 2. So we get to the Sayulita Entourage, they ship us off to the dock near Stinkys beach and we embark on the journey of a lifetime. We immediately start getting our gear together and go through all the safety procedures which we learned in the course and again from Jamie. We get to our first spot and jumped in! We talked everything over and what we were going to do while down there. Learned about the buddy system and making sure to stay together and what to do if we get separated. We started to head down and homeboy had a bit of a freak out so we head up asap. Thankfully we LISTENED to Jamie and nobody panicked and we all did what we were told in case of this scenario. I'm glad I pay attention, I'd feel really bad for someone who didn't :)
We went down again and it was significantly better, we swam around under the water for 30 minutes and then resurfaced together. We got on the boat and went to our second spot. There were zero hiccups. We went down, and spent like 40 minutes down there looking at the reefs, Jamie showed us electric rays and a moray eel and nudibranches and they were so beautiful. There must have been hundreds of different kinds of colorful fish that we saw when we were down there. Then she turned around and one point and signaled to listen. We were so close to humpback whales that were singing. It was incredible. I could feel it vibrating in my chest. I almost cried but had to stop myself so I didn't get water in my scuba mask.

So we resurfaced and finished and on the way back saw some more humpback whiles that must have been 15 feet away from us. Wild. I'll be signing up for the open water scuba because of the great experience I had.

Overall, Jamie was the most patient instructor which I think made the experience such an incredible one. As long as you listen and go in with a positive attitude I'm sure you'll have a great time too :)

Jamie was the best for our Discovery Dive
Jan 2021
I did a few dives with Sayulita Entourage last year and came back again this year with my girlfriend. She never dove before and was willing to try the Discovery Scuba Diving.

At first, my girlfriend was really reluctant to do it and was afraid of the whole process. But Jamie was her Master Diver instructor and it couldn't have gone better. Jamie, was patient and walked her through the entire process. At a certain point, she felt very anxious and didn't know if she could move forward, but Jamie sat down with her and took the time to have a conversation that completely reassured her. Once out at sea, at the Marieta Islands, Jamie walked her through every step, guided her during the entire dive, and made the process safe and enjoyable. To make a story short, she liked it so much, she is now ready to do the open water certification.
Thank you, Jamie, and everyone at Sayulita Entourage. This was a transformative experience for my girlfriend and now I have a dive buddy with whom I can share future dives.
Grazie - Roberto and Robin

Amazing scuba diving experience
I was with a group of 3 friends going for our scuba diving open water certificates. Stephane, the instructor, was cheerful, reassuring, and one of the most patient people I’ve ever met. He put a high emphasis on safety and repeating drills with us until we each felt comfortable. He went above and beyond to make us get over our fears and doubts. His crew was absolutely amazing as well, always in a good mood and encouraging us with our first dives. This was very important to me, as I am not as comfortable in water as most people. If you have any doubts or fears whatsoever, this is the place to go! You won’t be disappointed. Last but not least, Roberta handled the booking, communication, as well as our final certification. I am very grateful to them all and looking forward to return to Sayulita.

Scuba diving with ease
Esteban is an incredible instructor and guide. Knowledgeable, funny and super friendly. It was my sons first time diving and although he was very nervous and almost gave up, Esteban gave him confidence and made him feel safe. It was hands down the one of the best experiences of his life. From first contact, Roberta was quick to answer all questions and make booking so easy. Very professional and reliable company. Will use them again for other excursions as well the next time we visit. Thank you for an awesome day!

Discover Scuba N’aht
Dec 2019 • Friends
Much like Charlie Kelly in It’s Always Sunny, I pretty much never get the chance to leave Pittsburgh. So when coming to Sayulita for a friends wedding/ my 30th I embarked on a campaign to try everything I possibly could.
Lo and behold we were staying next door to Sayulita Exchange. I wandered in and spoke with Roberta about everything the Discover Scuba Experience entailed, and set up to go out on my 30th.
The instructor Jamie was absolutely amazing. After walking through the basics in a pool we set out to the Marietas Islands and were off. She did a great job making sure I was calm and able to see as much as I could (being nearly blind without my glasses this was quite a feat). Afterwards they not only treated us to arguably the best fish tacos in Sayulita, but also gave several more recommendations for later in the days.
Without question, would do again.

Fantastic introduction to scuba diving
Nov 2019 • Couples
Our scuba instructor Jamie taught us the basics of scuba diving in a pool scenario first and out in the ocean the following day. She was informative, considerate and fun to learn from, and answered all of our questions and concerns in a professional, knowledgeable fashion while also making it fun. Unfortunately the weather was too rough to take us out to the Marietas islands, however they were amazingly accommodating and took us out the following day when the weather was more favourable. Then I got to dive with Stefan, who was also very experienced and personable. My partner wasn't comfortable diving, so they catered to her with a guided snorkeling tour that took her around the island's rock formations so she could experience the same beauty from the surface as I did from deeper down. All in all it was an amazing experience I will not soon forget, and has motivated me to try scuba diving again. The staff catered to our every need and concern, and even gave us the tour of the island after wind conditions hindered our original scheduled dive.

Would highly recommend!
