My boyfriend and I planned a snorkeling trip of Mosquito Pier during our vacation. Our guide was Arnold who was very knowledgeable about Vieques and also the main island. He gave us many recommendations of things to... More

The instructors were very thorough and gave a great education lesson to the discover scuba group. We had a great dive under water wtih calm waters. Not as much sea life as I would have wished by the pier, but we saw turtles and schools of fish. Great overall experience.

Well, this is the first time I write a review so I hope this is helpful for everyone. I wanted to surprise my boyfriend on our trip to Vieques with getting certified for open water. I started to do all the research and Gabe (one of the master divers) helped me non stop. Emails everyday, back and forth and he... More

We recently stayed at W on Vieques. Black Beard has everything you need to enjoy a water/beach vacation. Our group went on an outing to Pata Prieta (Secret Beach) hosted by Black Beard. Macho was the driver for our van on the way to the beach and took us through some of the neighborhoods and told us some stories along... More

My wife and I spent a week at the W in Veaques. I am a seasoned 20 year diver and she finally got certified and joined me diving. When I called Black Beard's and told them she just got certified, Gabe setup a one on one instructor dive from the shore. Jared was excellent taking us to a pier and... More

We met the owner of this great shop on the ferry on our way to Vieques, and she was full of great information for us. Stopped by the shop to rent snorkeling gear and the staff was so friendly and helpful. Definitely stop by Black Beard for any sporting gear you might need -- and pick up t-shirts for your... More

I spent the last week in Vieques at the W with my mom. We had three tours (snorkeling, bio bay & paddle boarding) set up for us with Black Beard. Macho was our guide for the snorkeling & paddle boarding tours and they were both awesome! The bio bay was a bit of disappointment - it didn't actually light up... More

Black Beard Sports was recommended by the W Vieques Retreat and we wanted to get the open water certification during our 1-week holiday in Puerto Rico. They provided transportation from the hotel to the shop to get our gear. The dive location is great. Cristina and Gabe are great teachers, were very supportive and we had a great time with... More

We did our open water certification dives with Blackbeards. Gabe could not have been better. We had a class with just the two of us to do the diving. My fiance was a bit nervous at first and Gabe really helped us both be comfortable and practice our skills. Amazing experience all around
