I spent thousands of dollars going to Prodive College in Puerto Vallarta and was ripped off by one of the instructors who is now part of the operation at AntaresDiveAcademy.com.  Nothing new here I contacted PADI directly and was told the old dive center was expelled from the PADI.  Sold and moved to Puerto Vallarta were once again they ripped off students.

Now the instructor who was with both the expelled school and who stole money in Puerto Vallarta from students...Mariano Castro PADI instructor (suspended as of this date by PADI) is now in Manzanillo working with AntaresDiveAcademy.com.

Their website is nothing more than a cut and paste of the Prodive College Website and from Neptunes Diving College website. The current instructor Geronimo Delgadillo PADI number 233649, was an instructor with Neptune's Diving and Im sure part of the problem. Is now the main guy at AntaresDiveAcademy. [continued below]....
.....

I contacted PADI myself and asked how they could just let them open up another PADI school and they told me Mariano Castro is not authorized to teach, and that AntaresDiveAcademy.com is not a PADI school in anyway, shape or form.

Same old scam with a new wrapper.. beware of this company.. if you can call it a company. And shame on the Barcelo Karmina Palace for having them as their concession.

PADI instructors who are scamming folks

GERONIMO HERREJON DELGADIO  PADI  NUMBER 233649
