I simply can not rate this dive shop high enough. Crescent and her husband are simply wonderful. Excellent communication and the shop is located perfectly for departures. The dive instructor, Jenny, was simply amazing. She helped my son and I through the process of our open water certification. She has so much knowledge to share, and excellent attention to all that is going on around her. Simply make the call, book it, and they will see that your experience is exceptional.

This was our third time diving with Aquanauts, we love these people! My partner was certified by them on our first time using them. The owner Crescent and the dive guides were really receptive to his skills and ability, safety always a major concern. We did a whale shark trip with OceanTours, which was organized by Crescent. It was a bucket list experience for me and it was AMAZING! We also dived (or dove?) 2 other days on the reefs nearby and had excellent dives. Our guides Juan and Gabriel were very attentive and made sure that my partner was comfortable and helped him to increase his buoyancy skills. We can't wait to go back!

I can't say enough about how amazing this shop is to use for diving and exploring Mexico! I found Aquanauts though the recommendations of fellow divers and gave them a call. From just one conversation with Crescent, all my questions were answered and we were off on a great partnership to create an amazing trip not just for my diver husband and myself, but my larger family who were nondivers coming to Mexico to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Crescent worked with my husband and I to find the safest weather and best locations for our diving adventures. We are both new divers, me being very anxious as well. The dive masters were amazing and helped us both improve our skills with every dive. We even went outside our comfort zone a bit at their recommendation and tried a cenote dive which was an amazing experience! For our larger group, Crescent helped me even plan land tours to help create lifelong memories for the rest of my family. It's not easy to please 13 people, but everyone left smiling and raving about all the amazing adventures we got to experience. Crescent helped us coordinate all kinds of tours including ruins tours, turtle snorkeling, cenote swims, shopping, and a visit to a monkey sanctuary. We even got to cross off seeing whale sharks from our bucket list! If you're visiting Mexico to dive, use this shop. If you're coming with family or friends who are not divers, still use this shop! They are true locals and will make you feel like family while you're there. We can't wait to go back again!

My and my wife visited the Puerto Morelos area for some diving over a 10 day vacation in June of 2021. While researching a place to dive with we reached out to 8 or so dive shops in the area and while we heard back from nearly all of them Crescent and Aquanauts clearly was interested in making sure we did the diving we wanted to do. She replied with detailed information about the area and the types of dives and answered all my questions. We ended up booking nearly 30 tanks with Aquanauts and dove a variety of areas from multiple Cenotes, reed dives, lion fish hunting, whale shark snorkeling, underwater museums, a shipwreck and a night dive. I am a rescue diver with more than 500 dives and dozens of dive operations behind me and I can say that Crescent made the experience with Aquanauts feel like diving with old friends. There were of course hiccups I think we went through at least 5 flashlights on our dives, but we also feel safe and well taken care of. When you are diving with friends you can expect some stuff to not go as planned. Crescent and her husband divemaster William bent over backwards to accommodate our dive request from last minute changes because my wife got sunburned and wanted a day off to getting in all the dive sites we wanted. Even a night dive which my wife has been trying to do for 5 countries/trips now. There is no other way to say it, diving with Aquanauts felt like diving with my friends. Crescent packed us lunches on long days and made recommendations in things to do around town. They arranged all transport from and to our resort, often times picking us up themselves. While they were priced a bit higher than some of the other shops we talked to they definitely had the service to stand behind it. My wife even got her nitrox cert through them while we were there and it went very smoothly. If you are looking to dive this area I recommend that you call or email them and speak to Crescent, I doubt you will go anyone else after. While William was a great divemaster, friendly, and knew his stuff it was Crescent who made this place what it was. She was constantly going above and beyond for her guest and we will send everyone here who asks us for a dive recommendation in the area.
