Mergulhar com alguem que faz amigos, não apenas clientes

Jan 22, 2014 by Fernando Cesar

Após mergulhar com o Álvaro, concordo plenamente com o que ele sempre diz: "fazemos amigos, não apenas clientes"!
Ele simplesmente adora o que faz e transmite isso a todos. Além do mais, ele genuinamente se preocupa com todos que mergulham com ele.
Completei em Janeiro de 2014, junto com minha filha adolescente, minha certificação Open Water. A calma do Alvaro, sua atenção e sua decisão de manter grupos pequenos fez toda a diferença para o sucesso da nossa certificação.
Além dos mergulhos, ele nos ajudou quando precisamos de um dentista em Cancun. Fez isso de forma desinteressada, pelo simples prazer de ajudar.
Um outro exemplo de sua atenção com os amigos que faz por conta dos mergulhos: saímos muito cedo um certo dia para mergulhar e, como não encontraríamos locais abertos para o café da manhã, o Alvaro nos trouxe o que comer, levando em conta até mesmo o fato que minha filha é vegeteriana...
Ele fala um execelente Inglês, mas tem aprendido Português também, apenas para melhor servir, o que nos deixou mais confortáveis ainda!
Por fim, depois de nossa certificação, decidimos fazer um mergulho no Cenote Chac Mool... simplesmente maravilhoso. Muito seguro também, graças a experiência do Álvaro.
Recomendo fortemente a Always Diving a todos os colegas mergulhadores do Brasil e de qualquer outro país :)

Open water dives

I booked to do my open water dives with Alvaro at always diving all I can say what an amazing guy very trustworthy and also a good teacher made me feel very comfortable in the water and also a very patient person what you need when you are starting off in the diving world helped me through all my dives and took time to explain everything what I need to know, would recommend Alvaro if you are planing to go to cancun as he believes in making friends and not treating you as a customer as some company's would can't wait for my next trip to cancun to go diving again and I can be at ease now knowing I have made a friend and found a very professional dive company, thanks Alvaro can't Waite to dive with you again.

Had an excellent afternoon with Alvaro. Excellent guide. Very professional and friendly.

Great instructor & Knows the right locations!

I did my classroom training and online training, and pool dives before going to Cancun.
Alvaro was recommended to me by a friend of mine to complete my open water dives to become certified.
It was the best-training ever! We did real dives, and combined the training together. Alvaro took me to a Senota, and to Cozumel. Fantastic experience.
During my trip, I met a lot of his long-time repeat customers who use him over, and over, for many years!
Highly recommended, I will be seeing him again.

Ni bien lo conoci me di cuenta de su profesionalidad. Con otras dos companeras canadienses, hicimos con Alvaro el buceo en en cenote Chac Mool. Fue una experiencia inigualable, era mi primera vez haciendo este tipo de buceo, y si bien los nervios empiezan a sentirse ni bien uno entra al agua, viendo como bucea Alvaro, uno se da cuenta, aun sin conocer sus antecedentes, que esta en presencia de un excelente dive master/instructor, haciendo que uno se tranquilice y disfrute plenamente del "viaje" sabiendo que al lado uno tiene al mejor instructor del planeta. Si bien Mexico no tiene un Papa, puede decir que tiene al Dios de los mares Alvaro Gonzalez Neptuno!!!
Si estas planenado hacer un buceo en Mexico, no dudes en contactarte con Alvaro Gonzalez.

VIP Service -- Above and Beyond Expectations!

Feb 20, 2013 by Tom Connare

Wow -- Talk about a personalized SCUBA experience! I described my interests to Alvaro, and he provided a dive package that proverbially blew my socks off. I got to dive just a few feet from a dozen or so bull sharks and saw the most magnificent sights within the Cenote caverns which I likely wouldn't have seen had I been part of a larger group. Best of all, Alvaro's staff captured the whole experience so professionally on video. It's the dive gift that keeps on giving. Alvaro is something of a mobile dive shop out on the water as he fixed both my gear and the gear of one of my dive buddies by opening up regulators and making small adjustments out on the boat. Alvaro's services didn't just stop on the water but went ´the extra mile´ ensuring my needs were provided for on land and in between dives as well. He picked me up and dropped me off at my hotel, provided breakfast and treated me to lunch at a 'locals' restaurant -- even provided some assistance not related to diving when I was in a bit of a crunch. The lesson learned for my next dive with Alvaro is 1) Leave my personal gear at home -- Alvaro's dive equipment is just as nice as my own, and 2) forgo the superfluous pony bottles and emergency gear -- with Alvaro's awareness and almost extraordinary 6th sense, I feel he can well provide for my safety.

Alvero is the most wonderful instructor that you could ever have the pleasure learning from. He helped to introduce me to the beautiful, amazing world under water. He is kind, patient, extremely knowledgable and a pleasure to know and to dive with. Alvero makes every dive a great dive! I have had many wonderful experiences diving with Alvero, and I look forward to many, many more....I hope to ALWAYS be DIVING

I was recently married and my wife is one cert. from being a master diver so I decided that I should give it a try. We contacted Alvaro prior to our honeymoon trip to Cancun and I can say it was the best choice we made. I did my required dives to get my certification and enjoyed them so much that I went on another two dive trip. He told me that they are in the business of making friends not customers and although I was only there a week by the time I left it was like I had known Alvaro and his crew for years. If you are going to Cancun you need to take the time to dive with this great group of people.

“A Name That Makes it great - Alvara Gonzalez!”

Apr 07, 2012 by David P

It's been a few years since my last dive - 15 to be more accurate! Along with the years, I've had some natural changes that everyone experiences getting older. I've wanted to resume diving for a number of years now, but one thing or another prevented me - including finding a dive buddy that would accompany me on that first dive after so long away. Through mutual friends that i know from Vancouver - who vacation in Cancun with a more-or-less primary interest in the diving surrounding the town, Al (Alvara Gonzalez) was recommended to me as the only guy to get me back in the water. Their recommendation proved flawless. Al is one of the most patient instructors I have ever had the pleasure of interacting with. At a pool session, he patiently re-acquainted me with both equipment and protocol and gave me the encouragement I needed to get back underwater. Then, on my first dive at the Museo Subacuatico just off the coast of nearby Isla Mujeres, Al stayed with me and the rest of the small company of divers through the entire dive experience - making small adjustments to equipment, making sure I was OK and leading all divers over the fascinating underwater statuary that comprised the site. More experienced divers swam freely throughout the site. When It was time to leave this fascinating undersea world and surface, everyonel commented on what a great experience it was.

Whether you're the most experienced diver in the world or just starting or re-acquainting with the sport, I've gotta tell you there isn't a dive operation better than AlwaysDiving. Thanks to you Al and your team of caring professionals!

I've been diving around the world for about 5 years now, and never have I come across a more complete and incredibly enjoyable diving experience in my life! My wife and I went to Cancun for our honeymoon and dove with Alvaro Gonzales of AlwaysDiving. There is nobody on earth I can more highly recommend than him when it comes to diving Mexico. Funny, extremely helpful and informative, with over 32 years of experience, rest assured you'll be in good hands diving with Alvaro (not to mention that he takes care of everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, on your trip)! Excellent at providing highly personalized service, over the 4 days of diving we dove with sea turtles (LOTS), wild dolphins, stingrays, explored breathtaking cenotes (caverns), and experienced the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world at Cozumel, everything my wife and I ever dreamed of seeing underwater. Ask to dive Tortugas too! You won't regret it. Dive with Alvaro and you won't just have some nice underwater memories to take home with you, you'll have made possibly the best friend Mexico has to offer! We'll definitely be making a return visit! Muchas gracias Alvaro! Abrasos, Ted y Tomoko.

“Scuba Diving with AlwaysDiving and Alvaro Gonzalez”

Apr 07, 2012 by MaryAnn

Scuba diving is the best thing that ever happened to me, thanks to AlwaysDiving and Alvaro! Al is, by far, the best dive master, instructor, guide, and all around go to man when it comes to diving in Cancun, Riviera Maya and Cozumel! His enthusiasm for diving runs so deep that I believe its in his DNA! Its always magical to dive with Al...for me, its better than a day at the spa...to experience the beauty of the gorgeous underwater world that surrounds the Yucatan is amazing! With 100+ dives with Al, I can say that when I get to Cancun, its my second home...and that is how he makes you feel, comfortable and relaxed.....safety first! and the next best part is I get to bring home a video of the dives...so I can share with my family and friends....!! Al is the complete package! Always prompt, the ultimate tour guide and always smiling!!! AlwaysDiving is the Best!! Thanks Al!!!*****

I met Al about 10 years ago when my wife and I had taken a trip to Cancun, and made a few dives with him. He was one of not only the best divers I had met , but also one of the best people I had ever met. Since that first dive in Cancun we had been all over the Yucatan with him. I have been to some of the most beautiful caves in the country, and have done some spectacular technical dives . Al had taught me a lot about underwater video and after our first dive together I was hooked. We have spent many hours both underwater and topside with him and his family and I can tell you that you will not find a better person than Alvero. If you are looking for a great experience and not only a professional guide, but the most patient teacher on the planet Al is your man. I can guarantee you will not be dissapointed.

Alvaro Gonzalez introduced us to diving with a resort course, then worked with us to obtain PADI OW and AOW certifications. He is a superb instructor, and we plan to continue our dive education with him. We return to Cancun every May to dive with Alvaro. To date, we have done 54 dives with him, and can honestly say that of all the instructors and guides we have dove with, he is our favorite.
When you dive with Alvaro, you don't feel like you're with a guide, or an instructor. You feel like you're diving with an old friend.
If you're planning to dive anywhere in the Cancun area, you cannot go wrong by diving with Alvaro.

Alvaro is top-notch. I have been diving with him for 4 years now and he is the ONLY guide I use when I go to the Yucatan Peninsula, I am currently shooting HD underwater film and some technical diving, and the only man I trust to keep me safe and to see amazing places is Alvaro, anything else is second best. If you ever dive with him let me know if you agree with the callsign I dubbed him with - the Human Marmot.
