Dive Zihuatanejo

Maude Jette

Maude is the owner of Dive Zihua. She is from Montreal (Canada), has always loved playing in the water but has officially started diving in 2003. From wreck diving in Canadian waters to meeting face to face with hammerhead sharks in the Galapagos Islands, she believes scuba diving to be one of the most rewarding activities you can do. Maude also studied marine biology and has worked with different marine animals, mostly elasmobranchs (aka sharks and rays). She is passionate about conservation, and therefore is involved in different projects. Maude speaks French, English and Spanish (still not perfectly but at a very good level).

Simeon Parent

Simeon Parent is a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer and started diving in Alaska in 2007. Simeon is a veteran from the US coast guard, commercial diver, equipment specialist and technical diver to name a few of his qualifications. He is a little encyclopedia of diving and loves sharing his knowledge. Simeon fell in love with diving right at the beginning and has enjoyed different dive locations all over the United States.

Antonio Lara

Our boat is piloted by a very experienced boat captain and scuba diver. We call him by his last name Lara! He knows every dive spot between Ixtapa and Barra de potosi so he could probably pilot the boat blindfolded. No worries, he is a professional and will make sure you are well taken care of. Lara is from one of the oldest families living in Zihuatanejo. Feel free to ask him about stories of the area he will be happy to tell you all about the beautiful town of Zihuatanejo.

Sparta and Bronco

Our two precious mascots. You might have the chance to see them at the dive shop. Sparta will probably bombard you with kisses and Bronco will make sure you keep your attention on him.
