I did 7 dives (2 3-Fun dives and a Fluo night dive) with Aquanaut and every single one of them was an experience I will not forget! I was in touch with Monica via email back in January and every interaction with her was very positive. The night before I dove, I stopped by the shop to do some paper work and met Monica's other half, Flo. He was so accommodating and gave me a short briefing of where we will be diving. I also met the crazy boat/shop crew. They were a hoot and all smiles! They helped me organize my equipment for the dives and made sure everything was up to standards. They run a 20 capacity boat which is nice. You have ample of space for your gear and suiting up was never cramped (I'm a pretty wide guy!). Food was always made fresh on board and delicious. The location of the shop is also quite convenient and well marked. The price for dive packages, I must say is the most competitive in El Nido. You might wonder if you're losing on something with them for the price. I also dove with another shop and while I also had a pleasant experience with them, I didn't think the other shop was any better than Aquanaut. So, if you're looking for an amazing experience.... Aquanaut in El Nido is the place! :)
