Rafa is an amazing dive master and tour guide. My husband had a great day of diving and although I opted out of diving due to the chilly water temp I was treated to a wonderful day of sights and scenery, historical information, and a delicious lunch on a white sand beach.

Rafa and his crews made my first time snorkelling an amazing experience! We went around Coronada Island. Saw sooooo many fish and other sea life. My favourite part was swimming with the sea lions! Their gear was excellent, lots of good food, they were all professional, knowledgeable and helpful. The day was so good, I went a second time! A... More

Did two dives with this vendor in early January. Water was about 68 degrees F so my dive partner and I were given double XXL 5 mm wet suits. We were glad to have the extra layer (even though we both dive frequently in Alaskan waters). The two guides, one boat driver and one dive master were both knowledgable and... More

I cannot say enough about how much I love diving in Loreto and how much the staff and owners at Dolphin Dive make it an even better experience. Rafa, Joel, Elena, María, the other Rafa, Abraham, and everyone else is just a delight to be with. And Rafa M. Is one of the best, IMHO, dive guides anywhere, especially if... More

Dolphin Dive Center, again (3rd time), has proven how capable they are at handling a large group (5 divers, 3 snorkelers) during a rather busy week-- they had enough boats & personnel to easily cover the job. We went in 3 different directions on each of 3 days, getting to see a variety of the islands, dive sites, fish &... More

I went scuba diving with Dolphin one day for 2 dives as we drove from the Cabo area back to California. Loreto is a beautiful area and Dolphin was a great dive operation. After doing paperwork we geared up and boarded the boat while on the trailer at the inland shop. Then they drove us the short distance to the... More

My wife and I spent a week of diving with Raphael and Dolphin Dive. This was our 4th trip with them over as many years. The fact that we continue to come back should tell you what we think bout Rapha. Great service! Small boat, so there is never a crowd. Made some good friends on the boat over several... More

Me and my family a party of 8 (4 adults and 3 children and 1 baby) wanted to go for a boat ride to discover the beautiful island just out of Loreto.
