Private Dive groups and tours in Puerto Vallarta. We only take your group, enjoy the boat all day and don't feel rushed to get back. After diving we offer waterfall tours and beach hopping or just the scenic route back. We also cater if you need to get back for a cruise ship or business meeting. We depart when you want, sleep in a little bit longer but still enjoy a early dive. Offer discover scuba classes too.
