Aquatic Adventures could and should (can and shall, hopefully!) be a much better dive operation than it currently is. There’s really a lot of good potential here, but, alas, that can get sidetracked by some important issues that need to be worked out, but they are improvable, and I hope he takes them to heart (you know, that organ that...

Thank you for the info..sometimes I check my folks by looking underneath myself, and y'all do not see that....anyway I can be more obvious about it..as far as telling buddies what to do? I have to assume that everyone certified to dive already knows that..don't they?? Anyway Thank you for the helpful hints.... More

We went diving close to Culebrita, the visibility was poor and there was nothing much to see, it was more a snorkelling than a diving site. But the reason why I was extremely disappointed was because Taz had a huge harpoon and was looking into every rock to find a lionfish. When he did find one, he spent a lot... More

We booked a snorkel trip for my husband and 9 year old daughter and a dive trip for myself and my 11 year old. Taz was fantastic! He was doing an open water cert for another woman during our trip, but my daughter and I explored a bit while he did the skill set with her, then took us on... More

We got on the boat as snorkelers. With 3 other divers on the boat. We were scheduled to leave at 10. But we ended up leaving at 12. We waited on the boat at the dock for 2 hours because Taz was waiting for other customers to arrive. But to make it even worse. He was making racist jokes in... More

Sorry you had such a bad time. As for the wait, if you were one of the folks we were waiting for you would not have been pissed about that would you? As for the lionfish, well I am not going to stand idly by while these fish (who are invasive) eat all the juvenile fish on my reefs. I... More

Because of my work schedule I did the PADI eLearning course prior to the rest of the certification. Acquatic Adventures in Culebra completed my certification. Taz takes his job seriously which I appreciate. He knows the curriculum and has been through countless "situations" to the point that there isn't much he hasn't seen. During my 4 day course he put...

My daughter (21) and I (56) went out for a day trip of morning dive, lunch and snorkeling, afternoon dive with Taz. Talk about wonderful, hassle free, comfortable experience. First, he offered to pick us up at the airport when our puddle jumper arrived, second - we go to the boat and all of the equipment is already loaded and... More

Really great experience. I've been diving for 25 years, my wife just got certified. We took dives on two days - one day we were the only people on the boat, the other there was a large party of snorkelers. On both days we were taken on two full dives and saw some of the most beautiful coral and sea... More

I never imagined that I would be able to snorkel. I have struggled with an intense fear of water all my life and due to this fear I have never been able to learn how to swim. I have been to Culebra many times. I met Taz on my first trip to Culebra. My 2nd trip to Culebra was for... More

Taz and Anne took great care of us on a recent trip. I'm a diver, my wife is a snorkeler - and we were particularly impressed when Anne (the co-proprietor) offered to come along and take my wife on what was essentially a personal snorkeling tour (and a very successful search for sea turtles) while Taz took several of us...

We had a lovely experience with Taz and Anne. We were not comfortable to do the dives and instead did the snorkeling tour. Me and my wife we both loved the way they paced the whole tour, Even though we were beginners, Anne Encouraged us and was with us the whole snorkeling tour. Anne and Taz are very friendly people...
