We have been diving with the shop for 8 years now! Wow time goes by, but the shop remains the same in terms of safety, professionalism, long dives, easy diving from the boat and a great group of people. So, what are you waiting for? The resort found out that we were divers and wanted us to dive with them.... More

We had other business in Puerto Aventuras, but were able to squeeze in two days of diving (3 dives each day). Jim was great to work with setting up the schedule. They normally shut down for a month or so in Sep-Oct, but he opened the shop a week early for us. We very much enjoyed diving with Victoria, who... More

Did two dives today with Aquanauts. Five stars on everything, well, except for the changing room. Cannot say enough compliments about my Dive Master, Victoria. Very thorough, safety is number one, very knowledgeable about marine life, with great communication skills and friendly personality. Definitely would recommend Aquanauts. The best thing about the dives was the great shape the reef was... More

I would recommend this shop because they are great at what they do. We had a safe, fun awesome dive. Nick and his team are an asset to diving. We plan on diving with Aquanauts again.

As regular annual visitors to PA we have dived with Nick and his team for a number of years. Safety and Professionalism don't always come as a package - but they do with Aquanauts. We have received fantastic service year in - year out and this year our 8 year old daughter has completed her PADI Seal course. Her training... More

I've now dived with several shops and these guys are safe!!! It may seem like a simple thing but believe me when I say it is important. Nick and Jim are fantastic.

This is a wonderful shop to dive with. I had been diving in Cozumel ealier in the week and didn't expect too much, I was very surprised at the quality of the diving. Nick and his crew are top shelf, he called in a DM to take me so I didn't have to stick with two divers doing their OW... More

We have been diving with Aquanauts for many years. While we only are in Puerto Aventuras for a couple of weeks per year, Jim and Nick (the owners) always remember us when we show up. Dives are usually very easy. Once you get your gear together and go to the Nativa (their dive boat), its a 5 or 10 minute... More

Aquanauts are the best and safest dive shop in all of the Mayan Riviera! Nick, Jim , and Myrna are extremely friendly and easy to deal with and supply 5 star service.
