Top Class Instructor
12 years ago i met Alvaro. i know him like a brother. im now a Master diver.maybe soon an instructor.
Alvaro is a superb teacher.excellent comunication skills with the young and the not so young.He make,s diving not a chore but a fun sport.i thought i knew most about diving untill i met Alvaro boy! what a shock!! his knowledge of the underwater world is amazing! his diving skills still amaze me. I wouldnt have any other instructor, Mandy and I, have done so many dives with you will see you soon, P & M
I am completely impressed with Alvero`s guidance in teaching me some of the nuances of safe and exciting diving. In his many years of experience instilled a greater confidence in this beginner, and his encouragement is infectious so that I will continue to refine my skills and will come back for the privilege of diving with this master of scuba. There could be no one better to teach you the fundamentals and appreciation of this wonderful sport. Cheers for Alvero.
Alvaro always provides great dives. He is a true professional who is knowledgeabe, patient, honest, and kind. I heartily recommend Alvaro to anyone (from novice to expert) coming to Cancun to dive. He is GREAT!
Patient, calm and professional.
I have known Alvaro Gonzalez for almost 9 years. He taught me to dive, to be a real diver, not just a recreational diver.” He has from the start, put me at ease. He is always very patient, calm and professional.
Every dive trip with Al is an adventure, never a dull moment and as a bonus, he films all my dives so I can share my experience with friends and family. Thanks to Al, I feel at home under the water. I will always be grateful to Al for sharing this wonderful underwater world with me! MaryAnn Mayfield- Palm Coast, Florida USA
I dove with Always Diving for my first ocean dive following my certification at home. I was inexperienced, nervous, and a bit sea-sick. Alvaro was patient, encouraging and most importantly had the ability to judge my abilities and anticipate my needs. As a result, I was able to relax and enjoy my first ocean dive and appreciate the all the amazing reef had to offer: the fish, the corals, the sharks and more. It was a magical experience and increased my confidence. Thank you Alvaro….I know I will be back to dive with you again soon! Mo
Grow is not easy, but with you help, we can make a difference in Cancun, if you already dive with Alvaro in Cancun, help us sharing a few lines talking about your experience with him.
“Alvaro Gonzalez is the best guide underwater I have dive with!”
You want a guide who will take the time to show and explain to you many things about marine life? Experimented diving with Alvaro Gonzalez was the best dive I did!! I come to Mexico many times a year just for diving, I had also great dives with many other school but that guy is soooo knowledgable, you will remember for ever!

The diving experience diving always, I made a delicious taste and sense of freedom, an experience of profound encounter with marine nature. The security provided by the instructor Alvaro and enrich the spirit exotic locations each year in my life .Love dive ! You will remember for ever!
Has been some time since we last dived with you my friend (Alvaro)
diving with you this last 15 years has made diving a real pleasure sport. but most of all , you!! as a Diving instructor for us all you have made it an experience we will never forget!! Will see you next March my friend, Mandy and Paul from the UK
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!”
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!
“If you do ONE thing in Mexico, make sure you dive with AlwaysDiving!”
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”
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.
