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

Completed my open water dives with Nick to complete my Recreational Diver certification. Had a wonderful experience and would not hesitate to recommend Aquanauts for anyone diving in the area. He thoroughly explained the requirements prior to the dive, and patiently supervised the completion of the skills, after demonstrating them first. The reefs were beautiful and being able to dive...

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
