Mark and his team provided excellent service while we were staying at the W. He set up a 1/2 day biking excursion for us to do on our own, which was a lot of fun. We also went on a morning hike to the sugar mill ruins, which was very enjoyable because Mark had so much knowledge. Finally, Mark took us (four 40ish gals) on a snorkeling tour of some of the beautiful beaches, including a great swim off of blue beach. Mark, Blaine and the others there always made us feel welcome, and they spent a ton of time talking with us about the island and just about everything else. All in all, Mark and Blackbeards made our trip to Vieques a truly fabulous one.

Booked 2 tank boat dives for my family of four. After some drama with the Ferry which fills up quickly.... Brian and Charlie took us on 2 great dives. The island, beaches and water are all beautiful, probably much like Puerto Rico was like many years ago. The boat was on the small side but worked well for our 4 divers. The corals were unspoiled and in very good shape. Charlie (dive master) pointed out moray, stingrays, trumpet fish, puffer, flounder, etc.and Brian (owner) gave us some island history on the ride to and from the dive sites and both could not have been nicer.

We had a great time doing the pool portion of our discover scuba with Brian. We were less happy with our open water dive.The dive master, Arnaud for the open water dive was not particularly warm or friendly-definitely not a fun experience. On the one hand he was really helpful with me when I had problems with bouancy but he was very impatient and stern with my teenager who had problems adjusting the mask...so much so that my child did not complete the first dive, and I did not go back in for the second dive.My teenager is fairly adventurous, so hopefully we can do scuba elsewhere and have a more positive experience.

Under the guidance of the experienced Mark, we embarked on a morning of pure joy exploring the natural and unspoiled beauty of Vieques' Blue Beach. The whole experience could not have been easier from the moment we booked the snorkeling trip we were taken care of and our comfort and joy seemed almost guaranteed. Black Beard Sports certainly should be part of any trip to Vieques.

Me and my brother took dive certificates at Black Beards, advanced and open water respectively, and had a great time! They have a hard working and friendly crew that really see to your needs. Relaxed, yet professional. They also helped out with those other small things you need on a trip, like tips to the best restaurants. It's really worthwhile to go to the island of Vieques as it is, Black Beards add some extra flavour to that. All thumbs up!
