I feel a little redundant here. Ho-hum, another five star review. I have been diving since 1992 and have been breathing compressed air for more than 250 hours in total. In all that time, I have seen many good and some not-so-good dive charter operations. HDC is among the very best; capable and professional staff and excellent facilities. Thanks for... More

After diving in many places across 4 continents, no dive shop experience has ever been this great. We began chatting with Anna (she runs the show from the land) approx 6 month before arriving, and felt like we knew her by the time we arrived. Luca, her husband and dive master, could not have been more enjoyable. From his high... More

This was our first time to Huatulco. We weren't sure how the diving conditions would be and not familiar with any dive companies. We had read about Huatulco Dive Center, but thought we would ask for recommendations through our hotel. We stayed at the Secrets Resort and when they recommended Huatulco Dive Center we felt more comfortable about going with... More
