We had a last minute wish to do the dive off the shore of San Juan. It was a wonderful experience for us as novices.Tony was very helpful as our instructor.

“Great Shore Dive!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

We were on a cruise so we had limited time to dive in San Juan. We corresponded by email with Karen and made arrangements for two shore dives (unfortunately we only did one as we were on ship time and so it was entirely our fault!). We got a taxi to the venue and watched as Karen began the first dive with another passenger from the cruise who had got his times right! It was a sheltered lagoon but outside the lagoon the sea was pretty rough! There is a small concession stand for drinks and snacks and they have a toilet as well which is very clean!! We chatted to a local, Juan, whilst we waited for Karen to finish the first dive. We kitted up and entered the water (it was a very comfortable entry) and had a brilliant dive. There was a little surge on the edge of the lagoon and the visibility was not especially good but Karen pointed out lots of fish and creatures and took photos. Although a shallow dive, it was a really good experience to see so many creatures up close. You can lock your belongings in Karen's van and she is a great guide - she has been diving the area for many years! If you are on a cruise book this shore dive - it is different but you will enjoy it with Karen's guidance.

“Great!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

We decided to go snorkeling on our last day in San Juan. Karen was amazing! Since it was my first time snorkeling, I was a little nervous. She explained everything very well. Once in the water, she showed us some amazing animals! She knew right where they would be. She even helped us after our snorkel by taking us back to our hotel :) We ordered a CD of photos from our snorkel and we recieved it less than a week later! I highly recommend Caribe! !!!!!!!

“Awesome shore dive with Karen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

Both my wife and I went on a shore dive with Karen Vega on Sept 3rd the day before we left for a cruise. Karen definitely helped my wife with getting her weight correct and reassuring her skills. The dive site was a common area for swimmers, but was teaming with various sea life and Karen took the time to point out the various creatures and took pictures of the wto of us and the sea life. In fact, we ordered a CD of videos and pictures that arrived at our house before we got back from vacation. We are looking forward to returning to Puerto Rico to do more diving and we highly recommend Caribe Aquatic Adventures.

“Excellent Guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

My husband and I dove with Karen. From the beginning, she was very responsive to email communication and provided excellent driving instructions. Even though we had only moderate visibility during the dive, she showed us some incredible sea life including baby octopus and two sea horses. We were very impressed with her knowledge of the reef. Afterwards, she gave us a list of all the different types of marine life we saw. I would definitely recommend her to any diver.
