Awesome time!

Great experience. Snorkeling with sea turtles and sting rays is a memory I'll enjoy forever. It was very close to our resort

What a great little dive shop located in the heart of Puerto Aventuras! The guys who run the shop are extremely friendly, funny and energetic and the local guides that we dove with over three days, Michel and Carlos, were great at pointing out a dazzling variety of aquatic life along the reefs. Don't worry about long rides, either the... More

We did three days of two tank dives. Everyone is friendly and informative. Easy to book and schedule. Prices are comparable for the area. Knowledgeable dive guides and short boat rides to the reefs. We saw lots of turtles, Rays and eels. They are not open on Sunday. I'd definitely dive with them again.

Bliss....so nice to be back "home" again. As you can tell, we love diving with this shop. The owners are super friendly and go out of their way for you. The dives are close, no stress lugging it over the beaches, a nice cart takes care to taking it from the dive shop to the boat. Nick does a great... More

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.
