We did a 2 tank boat dive with this dive shop and really enjoyed it. The staff were very friendly and accomodating. They played great music on the hour long boat trip to the island of Culebra, and once we got there we were in the water in no time. After the first dive we anchored near a beach so customers could lie on the beach, snorkel, etc. They provided a great lunch - 4 different types of sub sandwiches, and plenty of food for each to eat as much as they wanted! There was a full cooler of iced soda, water and beer, a huge fruit tray, and chips and salsa. After eating and relaxing for a half hour we did the second dive, enjoying the sun afterwards on the trip home. I highly recommend this dive shop - they were great!

My brother and I used this dive outfit while in Puerto Rico. They handled all our equipment well and even rinsed my personal equipment after use. Robert, one of the boat captains, Omar and Nick were wonderful. Robert has a very calming manner. Maria, the manager is awesome and when we had some trouble she more than compensated us. The diving was ok, but wasnt great. They advertise warm towels (which they do not provide) and Saturday trips to St. Thomas which they do not provide. Two days our dives were cancelled and one of them we were not notified until we arrived. The first was for weather and the second was for the coast guard to check the boat. Why that whole day had to be cancelled we do not know. They advertise two boats but we only saw one.

We had a wonderful day snorkeling at Culebra. The reef was in excellent condition at our site. Charter a boat like we did if you want access to remote beach heads and reef areas less likely to have other dive and snorkeling activity. It's worth every cent to be taken to a site that isn't trampled by everyone who has come before you. Once again top notch staff!!!!!
Schooling activity was phenomenal! Morey eel, lobster, urchins of various colors. We saw most of the fish chart to tell you the truth and a whole lot that isn't on the chart! You know you are at a good dive and snorkeling site when the other dive masters at the shop came along on our snorkeling trip to get some personal dive time in on their day off!!!!!!!

Their so-called "Full Day Snorkeling At Culebra 9:00 Am – 4:30 Pm" is misleading and incorrect. We signed up and did not vist Culebra at all. The PADI -Certified snorkeller instructor wasn't on board either.

I can't speak for thier scuba diving excursions, which may be OK, However, I can say from personal experience that if you plan on taking this "Full Day Snorkelling at Culebra" excursion, you may as well take the $95/pp they charge and just burn it.

We were dumped on a beach, in Culebrita, where many other (25-30 I think) luxury yatch were anchored, and told to snorkel off the shore. Terrible snorkel site, and overall terrible experience.

Complain if you want, but nothing will be done about it. Save yourself the trouble and book somewhere else, if you want a truly enjoyable day sail/snorkel experience.
