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. The staff is very knowledgeable and professional, and we had a great time on all our dives! They allow you to maximize your dive/bottom time, all while... More

Our 2nd trip to Aquanauts Dive Shop was just as great as the fist time. My husband and I traveled with his 78 year old father. Myrna, Nick and Mauricio helped to make the dives very easy and comfortable for him. The crew was also very polite and helpful. I can't say enough how competent and friendly Mauricio was on... More

We stayed in the Puerto Aventuras for 3 weeks. Our youngest daughter (11 years old) took her open water certification with Nick. Nick has all the time and patience to teach our daughter. We were never rushed and were always their first priority even when it was a busy day. Nick made my daughter feel at ease in the water... More

This was my first time in Mexico and spent a week at Catalonia Yucatan. Before this trip I was definitely planning to go for an ocean dive and started researching for nearby dive shops. Came across Aquanauts and found excellent reviews so I decided to check it out. When I got there, the service was very professional and prices are... More

Just came back after a week's stay in Catalonia Yucatan Beach (Catalonia Riviera Maya - Puerto Aventura) diving with Mauricio at Aquanauts Dive Shop. This included a 2-tank dive in 2 cenotes. We would like to give our special thanks to dive-master Mauricio for the marvellous and professional care we experienced, very thorough, paying attention to details, leaving nothing to... More

First trip to Puerto Aventuras in March - had not been diving in 8 years; Jim, Nick, and Mauricio were all very professional and courteous. All dives are led by divemaster, but you are given the freedom to roam within eyesight of the DM and come up when your air gets below 500psi (no forced end of the dive for... More

We completed a week of diving open water and vey notes with Mauricio and Nick.. I cannot emphasize enough what a quality organization that Aquanauts represents. Mauricio completed my wife's open water certification and we were very impressed with his attention to detail and concentration on skill assessment. He is a great dive leader, environmentalist and representative of the diving... More

We can't say enough good things about Aquanauts Dive shop. They do small group dives that are guided by a dive instructor/master. Safety and quality dives are their priority. We did 4 dives over 2 days and saw some beautiful reefs and sea life. Fantastic visibility. The dive locations are only 5-10 minutes from the marina and we did open... More

My 12 year old daughter and I did the Discover Scuba Diving half day course - it was just the two of us. Nick did a great job taking us through everything we needed to know, always checking we were happy with the information and next steps. The whole thing made us both feel safe and well cared for.
