I had a wonderful time getting my open water certification with Charlie at East Cape Explores. He was professional, informative, hilarious, and had great stories and experiences to share. I was initially nervous about the emergency accent practice and clearing my ears. The dive team's knowledge and experience quickly eased my fears and made both practices almost effortless.

The shop's gear was excellent and well maintained. They have great boats with brand new engines as of 04/28/21. The ship's captain, Pablo on my trip, was skilled and professional.

Though I didn't get a chance to dive with everyone at East Cape Explores and their sister team Dive Cabo, I really enjoyed getting a chance to learn from everyone I met. Fergus was a great instructor for my first confined water dive. Ev had a beaming personality and I learned quite a bit from her even though we didn't dive together. Pablo from Argentina was a hilarious jokester. I really, really enjoyed the experience and I can and will recommend it to everyone.

I did the Discover Scuba course and had a great time! Charlie was easy to communicate with to arrange the booking and Trent was an awesome instructor. Having never been diving before I was a little nervous, but Trent methodically went through all the basic skills, guided me around our two dive sites (one was a shipwreck!), and kept checking in to make sure I was doing ok. You can't bring a camera on this tour because it's distracting while learning, but they took tons of photos and gave them to me for free (better than the ones I would have taken myself). On the boat ride we also happened to see some whales up close! Finally, it was fun to have Playa, Charlie's dog along for the ride -- she loves to look out for whales and is the best welcome party when you get back into the boat from a dive!

These guys are amazing! Excellent clear and easy to follow directions and very good in spanish or english for explaining things. This is the best deal in the area for a discover scuba dive since you get 2 dives! And it also doubled as a whale watching tour, as the boat driver get chasing after those gigantic beauties. It was an incredible experience with photos and video to remember by and again for 160$US it was a spectacular deal and experience. Will for sure be coming back to these guys once I am certified!

The team at East Cape Explorers is phenomenal. I was trying to coordinate dives 3 & 4 of my PADI certification after weather in La Paz changed my plans. Fergus was very responsive and helpful ahead of time to make it happen, and Stu took great care of me completing my scuba certification. We even got a whale watching tour out of our boat ride too.

We had a great first time dive experience with Geraldo and Pablo. They explained everything thoroughly and made us feel very comfortable. Geraldo was very reassuring when I had trouble getting my ears to adjust and stayed with me which made me feel very safe! My daughter is 14 and she was very nervous, but this professional group helped us feel calm and I’m happy to say we all would like to get certified since we had such a. Great first !

Awesome experience, great organization, fun adventure! I'm 54, my daughter is 20 and we both had a blast going on our first dives ever -- 2 right out of the gate. So much fun, safe, and can't say enough great things about this company. From wet suit to photos, they're efficient, charming, helpful, just total pros. Do this!

We did our padi open water diver cert with East Cape. Great little dive shop and the instruction (our instructor EV) was fantastic! Could'n't have asked for a more professional, thorough experience. These guys really care about the sport and sharing it with people safely. We'll be back for some guided dives for sure!

We had a light group so we got out early and had 2 awesome dives. Charlie is a great instructor, attentive and knowledgeable. Jaime, the captain, was also great. I highly suggest using East Cape for any of their tours

Very first time scuba diving with Charlie and Danny! What an amazing experience! Charlie was an excellent instructor, and Danny was an awesome captain. Both knew what they were doing and we felt safe the entire time. I highly recommend this tour and would do it again, in need of my certification now after trying it!! Haha. 10/10 experience thanks for such a fantastic first time :)
