“No Other Place Like it... Truly the Best”
Once a year my wife and I try to travel to Puerto Rico, to visit friends and family and do some serious diving. This year we were, able to plan a one month diving vacation in Puerto Rico. As always, we get our gear from Jose and Karen at Aquatica in Aguadilla. There is no other place like them, they have always made us feel at home when we visit the shop and treat us like part of the family, and always make sure that all your needs are satisfied; their customer service is number one. Recently, I purchased two Atomic Cobalt dive computers from them, and because of an issue at the factory, we did not get them before we were schedule to depart the island. Jose and Karen followed up on our computers and kept us informed every step of the way as to where were our computers, making sure that we received our computer without any further issues. As far as knowledge and professionalism, I can honestly say they are second to none. I have been diving for 14 years and I have met a lot of dive masters and shop owners some memorable and some ... not so much (with a wife who is new to SCUBA, there are very few people that I trust whenit come to her diving, Jose and Karen are number one on this list) I can honestly say the professionalism, experience and knowledge that Jose possesses, is impresive and having him acompany us in a dive guarantees your dive will be memorable and safe one. Our last dive of the trip was a small coral cave dive in the Isabela coast, and we arranged this dive through Aquatica. In this dive we had had beginner divers on their first dive since completing open water cert, something I would have had an issue with if had been any other dive master, but since it was Jose, we where in good hands, so I kicked back and relaxed. Prior to the dive Jose, went above and beyond what most people cover in for safety prior to a dive trip, and covered how he expected the beginners to dive and where he wanted them in the pack. Through the dive Jose was not only a good leader but made sure that all divers where comfortable with the enclosed surrounding which provide for a safe diving experience for all. We are already planning our next diving trip to Puerto Rico, and rest assure that we will not dive with anyone else but with the staff at Aquatica… in our opinion, there is simple no one else we will trust.
