We were very lucky and the weather was excellent. Apparently both the day before and after our dives they couldn't make the trip to the island. We did Candyland and Cuevas and loved it. Were fortunate enough to even see a black tip reef shark! Taino people were helpful and respectful over the phone and via email, and we had... More

This was probably the best two tank dive on which I ever went. Guided by Capt Frank. 100 feet visibility. Crystal-clear water, 82 degrees. The first dive to 80 feet (stayed 30 minutes total using dive computer) was to Candyland. Totally thrilling. Big nurse shark over 6 feet long, tons of beautiful colorful coral formations, many many fish and to... More

I went with my sisters, brothers in law and my little niece! We had an awesome day of diving while my niece and sister spent their time in the surface snorkeling. The trip was awesome, service was great and we all had a fabulous time! We went to Desecheo Island and it was unbelievable. Can't wait to come back again... More

My wife and I scheduled a boat dive with Taino prior to our arrival in Puerto Rico. I called the day before and was told there weren't enough divers for a boat trip. We were disappointed but Taino offered us a shore dive trip. They have a business to run so I understand the minimum requirement. The only thing I... More

We were in Puerto Rico for eight days diving/driving the Island. This was one of multiple dive shops we dove with, and was recommended by other dive shops across the Island. We had an incredible experience diving Desecheo Island. We dove on my fiancé's birthday, and the weather was very accommodating for us. The visibility, compared to other areas of... More

We stayed on the west end of PR to dive on that side. The weather was a bit rough so Taino could not take us out to Desecheo Island. This was not Taino Divers' fault because they do not have large boats which will take rough waters. If you wanted to dive, they did not offer many alternatives--at least none... More

Let me just start by thanking Captain Frank and 1st mate Izzy. I have dove Desecheo island extensively...and what I mean by extensive is I have over 1000 dives out there. Yes, one thousand. It is because I used to work as a dive instructor here. The wind and waves were too rough to make it out to the island... More

I was referred to this dive shop by past guests as the only local shop that travels to the island (Desecheo). When my fiance and I stopped in to ask if they were going to the island they simply said "no too rough" and went on to turning away the next customer. I waiting for their attention again and asked...

Every once and a while you book an excursion and come back thinking that was a waste of time and nothing like what they said. This is one of those excursions. We booked the "sunset cruise and whale watch" for March 11th out of Rincon. We were sold on seeing the sunset from out in the ocean and seeing whales.... More

Fantastic all around! First and foremost, Desecheo does have world-class diving - I've truly dove the best all around the world and I'll admit I was skeptical before going! Amazing visibility, very healthy reefs, lots of fish, gorgeous swim-throughs, and much more. As for Taino Divers themselves, these guys did a wonderful job prioritizing safety and responsibility yet remaining super... More
