If you are NOT looking for a pushy resort excursion where they pile as many people on to a boat and throw you into the water with life jackets for maybe a couple hours, then look no further. Terry is top notch. Service is exceptional. Knowledge of the area both for snorkelling and anything else you want to know is... More

My wife and I had a fabulous experience diving with Terry. We chose to do the PADI elearning and pool dives at home and then did our open water dives in Manzanillo but we could have done the certification end to end with Aquatic Sports as well. Terry was a very patient instructor discussing our goals for the experience as... More

I contacted this dive shop a couple of weeks before my trip to Manzanillo and Terry was very helpful planning our entire schedule and giving recommendations about the PADI eLearnings. My boyfriend was getting his Open Water certification and I wanted to get certified as a rescue diver. Once we got there we had the best time! Terry is an... More

Julieta, thank you so much for the kind words and compliments. We really work hard to customize trips or training for our customers and students. I'm delighted we were able to run your training side by side. I'm always very pleased and very proud to train a PADI RESCUE DIVER. As you know, that class is a lot of hard... More

We booked a snorkeling trip for our family (4 adults and 2 teens) as our last stop of our cruise. We took two cabs to their shop ($20 each) and were fitted with gear. I had not used a wetsuit before while snorkeling but Terry encouraged us to for floatation as the water temperature is pretty comfortable. We did really... More

Thank you so much for visiting with us! We are getting more cruise ship business this year than ever before. If it continues we will have to refine our processes! Your last comment helps me a lot.

We decided before we came down here that we couldn't change the culture but if we couldn't perform as professionals we didn't want to do this. We appreciate your comment very much. We also try very hard to assure everyone feels at home and has a good time when they visit us. Thank you for the very positive comments. More

Everyone at Aquatic Sports and Adventures was top notch - especially Terry. My husband and I were looking to complete our Open Water Scuba Certification and this was an amazing experience. Terry was patient when I was nervous, and at one point literally gave me the mask off his face to help me out. Not only did I leave the... More

You both did really well! That first dive was hard for you with the mask you were using. When I got you into one of our masks it was an entirely different experience for you. Proper fitting gear is crucial when you are first starting out. Especially the mask! If it doesn't fit your face you'll NEVER tighten it enough... More

I had read the great reviews Aquatic Sports and Adventures had earned, and this, combined with some negative comments about the dive shop associated with our hotel, made choosing them an easy decision. Communication was clear and prompt. There were 3 of us diving and we had been recently certified. We stopped by the shop the afternoon before our drive... More

Thank you for the kind words! We try hard to run a professional operation. Carlos, Nathan and I, Terry, all love underwater photography. Glad that Carlos was able to offer some insight into your new camera. The sites you dove are among my favorites. Las Carrizales is always a good choice in most weather conditions. Please come back!

I recently traveled to Manzanillo with a large group of family. However, I was the only certified diver and really wanted to get a few dives in during the trip. Terry at Aquatic Sports and Adventures was very responsive to my needs and went above and beyond in helping me schedule a few solo dives with him. My diving plans... More

It was great diving with you. Your home for the week was very close to the dive site so it made me easy for me to be able to help you. We try hard to create a custom experience for every diver so I am delighted to see your review. Hurry back! You are a good diver! More

We spent the morning with Terry. We ended up at three different snorkle sights and had a wonderful experience. Well worth the time and investment in a trip that was well planned and thought out! Thanks Terry for the wonder time. Lisa and Becky.

I love to take folks out snorkeling so it makes me very happy to hear that you enjoyed the experience. We have some favorite sites but also have some alternate sites available to us. As much as I would love it, we can't control the weather. Our bays are open to the Pacific and if there is something going on... More
