We were able to book a snorkel tour by email, with prompt responses and details of the tour. All equipment was provided, including wetsuits. Ended up at 3 different snorkel sites. We were impressed with the water clarity and the variety of fish/coral and saw fish/coral formations we have not seen during prior snorkel trips in other locations. Best guide... More

Thank you for the kind words! We take great pride in trying to run the best snorkel trips in Manzanillo. We try to seek out the best spots for snorkel diving and take our visitors there. We do not like to mix scuba and snorkelers on the same boat because the sites can be vastly different. We will do that... More

Terry and Nathan at Aquatic Sports and Adventures provided floating wet suits, masks, snorkels, and fins for a fantastic trip in the pristine waters near Manzanillo, Mexico. They lead us to lovely coves with many reefs and colorful fish. While traveling to/from a cove, they provided lots of information on the environment and the fish. I highly recommend these folks!!

Thank you so much for the kind words. We do try to go the "extra mile" in getting folks to some pretty good areas that are not frequently visited by other stores in the area. We really enjoy folks in wetsuits as they have a much better time not having to work to stay afloat, plus protection from the sun... More

I did my open water certification here and it was a pleasurable experience. Carlos was very thorough and a pleasure to hang out with. Manzanillo is a beautiful place to dive and I'll definitely be recommending Aquatic Sports!

We did have some great dives for your Advanced Open Water course. The best dive on the San Luciano wreck I've had. On your AWARE Fish ID we found an octopus that put on a good color change show and a beautiful orange seahorse. Come back and we can get in that Night dive! You are a good diver! Dive... More

I have dived with Terry, Nathan, and Carlos and I've been thrilled at the experiences... for at least five years now. BTW, the Scuba Shack is gone (reviews appear current, but aren't). What makes this Aquatic Adventures the best first and foremost is their customer service. They rent new equipment (altho you can use your own,I don't bother anymore). Terry... More

Me and a friend had never properly dived before and were a bit apprehensive about it but our instructor, Terry, was fantastic. We were shown what to do in a local pool and then taken out into the pacific to do a shore entry dive. The instructor showed us some amazing corral and aquatic life and both me and my... More

I had a really good time introducing you, and your friend, to SCUBA. If you are ever back in Manzanillo please stop by and say "hi". I hope you continue with a certification course, you were both "naturals" and very comfortable in the water! More

I was unable to do any diving on my latest trip to Manzanillo, but Terry & Nathan were still able to assist us with other activities. Nathan set us up to tour Ola Brisa Gardens which was fascinating. Got to meet the owners of the gardens, Tommy & Patty, great people. Terry and Nathan also helped us out with dining... More
