    What Our Customers Say

    “Excellent experience! Arturo was our diving instructor, and he made the whole PADI certification process so much fun. Going in, I was a bit nervous. However, Arturo displayed a total mastery over all scuba related techniques, which really reassured me.

    Additionally, he was extremely encouraging and attentive – making sure we all learn while having a good time. I highly recommend working with Achi Divers! You will not regret it!”

     “Had the best time of my life. Mark is an excellent instructor, very patient during my open water diver course. He helped me get over my initial fear in the ocean, kept reassuring me and built my confidence up. I saw sharks, stingrays, barracudas, huge lobsters, jelly fish, a giant green eel, and tons of unique fish. It was amazing to say the least.
    Thank you Achi Divers for making this the best birthday ever. Please know, It’s a new shop so all the gear is either new or in like new condition. They practice social distancing. Everyone purchased their own mouthpiece, wore masks on the boat and everything was wiped down afterwards. Always felt completely safe. I’d give ten stars if I could.”
