I just got back from a week-long stay in Puerto Aventuras with my family and ended up diving with Aquanauts twice during that time. Let me start by stating that I’m a brand new diver. I’ve always wanted to try out scuba, and having missed doing it on other visits to this area, I figured this visit was the time... More

This place was very good at making sure my two sons were trained and could preform all the underwater tasks before heading out for their first open water dive. My one son unfortunately had a ear blockage and could not go past 20 feet, but the dive master worked with him for ten minutes before we both thought best for... More

These shop is all around amazing! I was a newly certified diver and dove 2 reef dives with Nick & Mauricio. They were awesome dive leaders, really maximize your bottom time, and spotting tons of fish, octopus, turtles & so many more! The boat crew is super helpful & take care of almost everything for you - you seriously just... More

This is the Shop to use if you are one who values bottom time, and has good control of your air. Most dives will get you close to NDL, so you don't find yourself back on the boat with still 1/2 a tank left. I did my 5 dives with Mauricio. He is as fun, knowledgeable, and safe as they... More

This is the 4th year we have been coming here, and for me the main reasons to come to Puerto Aventuras is the daily scuba diving. There are several diving shops in Puerto Aventuras BUT unlike the other shops the Aquanauts team focus on the quality of service. I feel like home, diving with instructors that are great friends and... More

This is now the six year we have been coming here, and one of the main reasons we come to Puerto Aventuras is this wonderful gem of a dive shop. The focus is on great service and total experience. My air consumption is very low, and I get extremely annoyed at most dive shops around here that try to ensure... More

We have been coming to this dive shop for quite a few years now, and it always feels like home. Nick and Mauricio are excellent dive masters. Safety is always first. They are kind and patient. No one rushes you, long bottom times, instead of whoever runs low on air, everyone up. The boat rides are short and the guys,... More

This is a family run dive shop (mother and Son) Great team...very knowledgeable, patient, professional, thorough, easy going but on time....dive locations were close and convenient by walking, boat and car. The Cenotes are amazing. The boat dives were 3 minutes away and we saw eagle rays, marble rays, turtles, huge lobster, crab, puffer, lion fish, etc. Nick and Mauricio... More

Our extended family recently stayed in Puerto Adventuras and taking in some diving was high on the priority list for my brother and I. After some inquiring, Aquanauts was highly recommended to us. I used to be an avid diver, but haven't been down in 15 years, so we decided on a refresher course. In addition, others in our family... More

We have been going to Puerto Aventuras for quite a few years, but this was our first trip for diving. We researched the local dive shops, and Aquanauts stood out from the beginning.
