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

Really great Dive shop located in manzanillo. Very reasonably priced, with great instructors, quality equipment and many beautiful dive sites. I was a very inexperienced diver when I came to this shop. Carlos was really good at keeping everything at my pace and within my skill level. Nathan was very friendly, responded to my inquiries quickly and worked with my... 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

My wife and I have been diving for approx 30 years. We have reached a stage in our lives where we tend to pamper ourselves on our dive trips (either high end live aboards, or we arrange private charters) no "cattle car" diving for us thank you. Recently we were spending some time in Manzanillo. We had not planned on... More

It was a great pleasure diving with you! Two really great dives. I, personally, had never seen a school of Yellowtail Surgeonfish that had descended on a rockpile like the ones we saw on Los Frailes! You were all very competent divers and it was a real pleasure to dive with you. I'm so glad you enjoyed the experience. We... More

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!

I am really pleased to hear that you enjoyed your PADI Open Water Diver training experience. We work hard to assure every new diver a "gentle introduction to SCUBA". Our staff has over 75 years of combined dive experience and we use that broad base to help our students. More
