Scuba diving and snorkeling tours are what we have been doing since 1968 here in Puerto Vallarta, we have lived all of our lives guiding scuba diving and snorkeling tours. We have learned and understand the weather pattern, the best seasons of the year and times of the day to dive and snorkel each of the 20+ available sites in the bay, we conduct our diving services in a very relaxing ambiance were safety is provided in a gentle manner, we go the extra mile to make you feel at home and you will not be a reservation number with Chico’s Dive Shop.
In order to scuba dive and snorkel the best out of Puerto Vallarta and see the most of sea life, we need to be aware and understand every aspect in the daily weather pattern surrounding the area, including the oceanic currents, the continental shore winds, the moon effects, the seasonal changes on the local currents and the arriving swells caused by storms in the northeast pacific and moreover be aware of the unpredictability in the weather.
It is clear we have to adapt our activities around weather conditions and this is precisely what we do at Chico's Dive Shop. We pick the best available dive sites in the bay, were conditions are best and sea life is abundant the same morning of the tour.
