I loved my first diving experience! Chelonia made it memorable for me, I was scared and nervous to the bones but I really wanted to do it so the team was attentive and supportive the whole time, the are very cool and teach you all necessary to make this experience the best, I felt super secure the whole time and they where very very patiente with me, everyone of them are the best! During my diving my partner on this adventure for me was Julio and he made feel super secure all time and show me the magic of under the sea. I took the decision at last minute and no regret al all! I highly recommend Chelonia. It was like a group of friends going to the beach but they take very good care of you to make of this experience the best! I wanna do it again! Thanks Chelonia <3

I couldn’t recommend diving with Chelonia more! Everything from communication before arriving to the dives themselves was perfect. The staff is accommodating, professional, and friendly. My partner and I completed the open water certification and had an amazing experience. The online course prior to diving was thorough and engaging. When it came time to dive, I was incredibly nervous and wasn’t sure that I could do it. The expertise and kindness of the staff helped me not only complete but also genuinely enjoy the dives! I felt safe from start to finish. The biodiversity is unbelievable- you’ll see tons of fish, turtles, and sea lions. A number of the staff members are trained in marine biology, and their respect for the environment is clear. I could go on and on- if you’re considering diving with Chelonia, do it!

I dived at Chelonia for 3 days (6 dives) with Franco. He was great and the whole team are so helpful, friendly and professional. Great dives at the MX1 oil rig and coral reef nearby. 100% recommend this dive centre!

It was a wonderful experience! My daugther and I swim with the turtles and had the diving course for beginners and they were one of the best experiences I had. Chelonia Dive Center guided was very professional and entertaining. Christian our guide was the best. I totally recommend these tours.

I’ve always wanted to do my PADI but was still quite nervous to start diving underwater. Couldn’t think of a better place to overcome this. Such friendly and helpful people, especially Geronimo (my instructor) who was incredibly patient and managed to calm my nerves.

Geronimo, Cristian, and Diego took me on an amazing dive at the abandoned oil platform out from Punta Veleros. The iron structure arising from the deep, now an artificial reef covered in bivalves, engulfed in swarms of fish and octopi, home to several sea lions. Great guys, knowledgeable, creative. I look forward to diving with them again.

Cannot thank Rodrigo & Diego enough for the amazing diving we did with them on the MX1 oil rig. We saw thousands of fish, some shy octopus and some very playful seals on both dives!! The water was beautiful and clear...and not even that cold which was a bonus. Really great that the guys spoke English as my Spanish isn't great. Huge amount of fun and I'd highly recommend to any diver visiting Mancora or Los Organos.

I'm so happy you could enjoy those dives. I hope you could travel more than you guys work. We are so happy to have you here in our small family. Keep traveling and never stop exploring. Best wishes to you and Sean. Rodrigo

We did a dive on the MX1 oil rig with Rodrigo and Diego, it was a great day out, the guys were very professional and knowledgeable, as well as the location being amazing.

Rodrigo spoke perfect English and they are involved with the local conservation activities. The dive shop has a great relaxed vibe. I would definitely go back if I had the chance!

Good luck with everything guys and thanks again!

Great experience in Órganos! Very professional team, safety instructions were explained clearly. It was my first time diving and I was not worried at all- they make sure that you are well taken care of!
