Chose ADA based on hotel's suggestion. Couldn't have asked for a more service-oriented shop. Crescent did everything she could to make sure our entire stay, not just the diving, was top-notch. She even helped us find bicycles when the shop that normally rents them was closed due to illness. Only negative was the cluster**** of Puerto Morelos traffic during the triathlon. The City closed the only road going into or out of town, which prevented our departure for the cenote dive. Crescent and Willie were both gracious and agreed to fully refund my payment, as I was flying home the next afternoon (outside my no-fly limit, which they checked on). Jose, the dive master, was both competent, knowledgeable, and (though you wouldn't think it from talking to him on land) EXTREMELY SAFE IN THE WATER. I had the opportunity to dive solo with him the first day, and he's interesting, personable, and, for those of us who only get to dive a few times a year, willing to provide some mentoring on how to get the most out of each dive.

Thanks, guys.

Fortunately we came across this dive shop during our travels to Mexico. Crescent and William (owners) quickly got us set up for a shipwreck and reef dive. Jose was a superb dive guide who was not only very knowledgeable of diving and the area, but had great a energy and personality. Fabian, our captain, and Miguel were also very helpful throughout the dive, catering to us, so that we had to do very little other than get in the water.

The shipwreck was awesome, as were the many schools of tropical fish seen on the reef dive. Thanks for making our Mexico trip that much more special.

We chose Aquanauts D.A. based on TA reviews and found it exactly like tourists reviewed it. Crescent and William both work very hard and provide you the best experience of snorkel (they also do Diving tours) at Puerto Morelos reef park. What you will notice is, attention is given to needs of all tour participants. their equipment was high class and clean. The snorkel guide they arranged for our tour was a nice young chap who knew the reefs very well and navigated us perfectly without west of any time. A lot to see and experience in these special shallow reefs of Purto Morelos. We really enjoyed the trip.
Do Not Miss the opportunity! Highly recommended.

Aquanauts has a location in the Hacianda Morelos Hotel so what started as just a convenient location became a totally perfect experience.
Cresent was able to arrange for her crew to take us out to the reef for the most amazing snorkel. The reef is shallow, full of fish and coral life, and so so close and accessible.
They run a scheduled service and there was only the 2 of us but we still went out so that made for a very easy swim for us with no other people to consider.
Not only was Cresent able to arrange the snorkel, but the next day she happily arranged a taxi to take us out to the Jungle Spa and stop off at her favorite seafood restaurant up near the Highway called El Picudo in case I cannot get to review it separately. Was the best seafood we ate in PM.
Cresent's service and their operation was fantastic!

I walked into the Aquanauts "store" in the Puerto Morelos town square just to ask for advice on a place to rent bicycles, and ended up meeting a couple of the nicest people in Mexico. The Puerto Morelos Travel Agency was closed, and I was at a loss as to where I could rent bicycles for a few days while in PM. Crescent immediately phoned Jin from Abbey del Sol, who said although they didn't normally rent bicycles, he would be happy to help us out as they didn't have too many guests that week. After a wonderful reef trip Crescent put together for us completely last minute, Jin picked us up at the dive shop and brought us to Abbey del Sol to pick up the bikes. After a few days, we returned the bikes and Jin was SO VERY kind to drive us back to our resort. We will be staying with the kind people at Abbey del Sol on our next trip to Puerto Morelos, and we will certainly snorkle with Aquanauts again.
