I had an amazing day. Lorenzo the owner was very friendly. He even offered a ride to my pregnant wife to the bech so she could wait for me while I dived. The staff is very friendly. The gear they rent is in great conditions. I defently recommend diving with this company.

We went to Puerto Escondido from Oaxaca specifically to go on a whale-watching cruise. I did a lot of research on different companies in Puerto. I chose Deep Blue Dive because of the review from Hecktic Travels and also because of Lorenzo's outraged response to the review here about fishing out turtles for sport. Lorenzo really cares about the ocean... More

The trip was great, we were lucky to find dolphins to swim with. You can come and ask for advice about which kind of a trip is best to do at the time (condition may change every day). I really appreciate the owners environment friendly approach, which I feel I need to stress after reading Erin C's review. during my... More

I was really enjoying this trip until about half way through when we came across one of many sea turtles off the coast of Puerto Escondido. The skipper of the boat offered to catch it and pick it up out of the water so we could take photos. I said no straight away and asked a few times that the... More

Dear Arin, please allow me to ask you publicly to forgive me, again, for this bad accident. It is simply something not acceptable and i, as owner and founder of my dive center, take full responsibility for the behavior of my crew. I've spent all my carreer trying to let people understand the importance of respect the wild life and... More

We traveled to Puerto Escondido in June. Some members of our group are SCUBA certified but most were not so we wanted to just go out on a boat and see some dolphins, turtles, and snorkel in the water. We talked to Lorenzo in the shop and due to the large waves at the time (Big Wave Surf Contest) he... More

My partner and I recently completed our open water certificates in Colombia and decided to do fun dives with Deep Blue based on its excellent ratings. Out experience showed that they certainly can deliver. We went with Arturo to two locations based on our skill level and the sea conditions. Visibility wasn't great but we saw a turtle which was...

The shop owner was home ill so we went diving with his assistant, Arturo, who was easygoing and clearly competent. Although we didn't see some of the highlights noted in other reviews, trunkfish, scallops, stonefish, morays, lobster, pufferfish, and lots of schooling fish of many sorts made our two dives worthwhile.

Lorenzo runs this friendly company from Hotel Innes, at a very conveninient point in the main strip of Puerto Escondidos. An Italian transplant, and gentle soul, he shared his love of the sea and it's beauty with us today. Though both advanced open water PADI divers, today we experienced, in a few hours, things we have never seen in 15... More
