I dive on vacation. You might say I'm a casual diver. This year we got in 5 dives. All with Aquanauts. I dive with Aquanauts because they are reliable and safe. The divemasters are skilled and seem to know where the interesting fish and other critters are. The boat crew are very helpfully both on prepping for the dive and... More

Aquanauts is a great independent dive shop, they make you feel very relaxed, whilst being very professional and competitively priced. I hadn't dived for 10 years, however some of the group I was with are far more experienced, all having an extremely good dive experience . Highly recommend

Owner/operator Nick, expertly and pleasantly, runs this dive shop. We wanted to dive a cenote and he provided the extra steps to hook us up with a master diver, well-familiarized with cenote diving. He assured us he would not place us with anyone except an expert of this type of diving. We also dove open water with Martin, who helped... More

I have dove with these guys for over 15 years. Small shop. Great customer service. This is not a "tourist scuba factory". Groups are small with lots of bottom time. Are you looking for a specific dive? This is the place. From novice to cave diving vets...congrats! You found your dive shop.

At 72, I had many dives logged, but not one in six years, so I booked a refresher and reef dive. I was extremely impressed by the thorough 3 hour refresher. I learned some safety items that had never been presented to me. I'd like to compliment owner Crystal and Instructor Luis for their highly professional instruction. In addition, our... More

Nick and his Aquanauts crew are the best. My family has been diving with them for years, and would highly recommend them. My husband and I just got back from a trip to Puerto Aventuras and dove 4 times with Nick and his crew - three day dives and one night dive. The day dives are lovely - great visibility... More

Nick and his crew are awesome! Our family has been diving with them for several years and got certified through them several years ago. They continue to be patient, thorough and are extremely professional and safety conscious. Highly recommend them to beginner or experienced divers.

Not only were Nick and Myrna absolute gems, the entire day from start to finish was incredible. I only did their “Discovery Dive”, but I was able to take my time with the equipmen to get comfortable, and complete a 45 minute 40 foot dive with the most patient and friendliest dive experts, you can’t ask for much more. Well,... More

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
