Nick and his team did a great job on all our dives. I was in Puerto Aventuras for my wedding for a week and completed two tank dives on three separate days. Nick is very knowledgeable of the local sea-life and does a great job leading the dives. Small groups, we had between 4 and 7 divers on any given... More

Been diving with Nick for a whole month and only say he's the best. Excellent with children with unbelievable service. Big and fast boat to take you places where none of the other dive shops go. Calm, great spotter and never finishes a dive at 45 mins if there is a little air left!! If you want a personalized quality... More

We've dived with Aquanauts on six occasions over the past few years, the latest being in August 2015. Nick & Jim run a small, friendly and very professional operation. Their dive boat Nativo is well equipped, reliable and manned by expert Captain and assistant who looked after us on every dive impeccably, helping us kit up, enter and exit the... More

We went to Aquanauts Dive Shop to get some information about diving, my wife had never dive before, so we were looking for a Discovery Diving, to see how it goes before taking the open water course. First of all, it has a great location, inside the puerto aventuras marina, the boat is 2 mins walking by the dock, Nick... More

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our 5 dives with Nick, the co-owner and dive master. Nick continued enforcing all the things the kids had recently learned in their open water course. There are plenty of dive sites just 10 minutes from the harbor.

My wife and had a few dives with Aquanauts. These are small group dives with a pleasant relaxed attitude but safety prioritised, much better than diving in larger groups. If new to the are I advise you to use this company.

I did my open water certification with Aquanauts 2 years ago and have dove with them on more than 20 dives. The entire operation is first class from the owners (Jim & Myrna) to the dive Master (Nick) and the two boat personal. They always stress safety on every dive and the dive master is always in the water until... More

Thank you to he entire crew at Aquanauts. My 10 year old son did his open water at this shop and I cannot tell you how impressed I was. They were patient with him. The instruction he received was as good as it gets. Jim and his wife treated us like friends rather then customers. Nick loves teaching and it... More

I'm using my wife's trip advisors account to update my previous post (Jess K) regarding Aquanauts Dive Shop. After my post we went to talk to Jim and Myrna and they were broken hearted to think that their 8 years trusted employees might do something like that. They more than compensated us for our loss even though it was totally... More
