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

We were very happy to have found Terry and his Aquatic Sports and Adventures shop. Before we even arrived we already enjoyed good communications and Terry offered & provided super friendly and customized service, with absolutely highly experienced & knowledgeable staff. For a small operation, they are well stocked with suits and equipment in all sizes, and everything we used... More

Thank you so much for the kind words. You were a very well-prepared diver and we certainly enjoyed working with you. I'm glad the first dives for your fellow traveler were exciting and a real "gentle introduction to SCUBA". Please visit us again! 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

My wife and did a total of 13 dives with Aquatic Sports and Adventures (2 days of boat diving, the rest were shore dives) and we were blown away by the diving and by the excellent service at ASA. Terry and Nathan were very knowledgeable about local shore sites and Carlos took us on some great adventures by boat that... More

3 days of diving with Carlos, a great divemaster and his assistant David [in training]. Typical Pacific Mexico diving- some turtles, lots of eels, rays and smaller fish. One good humpback seen en route to a dive site. Viz around 20-30'. Dove nitrox, good mixes around 32.5%. Very safety conscious, and we did longer dives than usual. Dive sites are... More

Dived for 3 consecutive days with Carlos and his apprentice David and they were phenomenal. Equipment was top notch and they are the best when maintaining a safe diving environment. Loved every minute with them and will be returning in the future.
