Kevin and Laquetta, thank you so much for the enthusiastic review! All of us at Aquatic Sports and Adventures love to dive and snorkel here. My first 5 years I was looking through our fish books after most dives so I could identify, and learn, what I just saw! I do that less now but recently reached for them again!... More

Thank you Terry and Nathan for making reservations so easy. Huge thanks to Carlos dive master for pointing out all the wonderful itty-bitty things under the sea. My go pro pics turned out pretty good thanks for helping me with that. Will definitely be back. Thanks Julie

We scheduled a snorkel/scuba trip with Aquatic Sports and the experience was excellent. They accommodated a group of both snorkelers and divers with two sites. Our group included young (twenty somethings) and older (none of your business) individuals with beginner and intermediate skills. Everything about the trip exceeded our expectations. Additionally, the launch location for the trip was on, what... More

We booked the snorkeling outing online before going on a cruise. It was easy to catch a cab from the cruise ship to Aquatic Sports.

Thank you so much for the kind words! We very much like to offer dives that we would personally like to go on. One way to do that is to keep the groups small so we can offer assistance and commentary to the group. It's hard to do that on a cattle boat. We had an excellent day for diving,... More

We had booked this snorkeling trip online with Terry well ahead of time, because we knew exactly when our cruise ship was due in to Manzanillo (and catching a cab from the port was no problem at all).
