Me and wife went to Puerto Rico/Culebra for our anniversary and picked Aquatic adventures based on reviews here. It was horrible and scary experience. We are not certified divers but have done a Discover Scuba course in Excellence resorts, Cancun(which was fantastic). We wanted to try it out again before we went ahead with the certification
In Cancun, training was done in a swimming pool where we both felt safe whereas Taz took us to the ocean and wanted to train us there!
Other than us there was another family which was going to do snorkeling. Taz took me and my wife for scuba and Taz's wife took the other family for snorkelling. They docked the boat somewhere in the middle of the ocean and all of us jumped into the water(basically the boat was unattended. Even if there was an emergency there was nobody to get the boat to you!!!)
Taz took us about 10ft down and disappeared. We expected him to be in close promixity to us considering this was a discover scuba course. It was just me and my wife and after a while we kept coming up to the surface and popped out. there was nobody around us and we couldnt see Taz or anybody around us. It was a freaking scary experience. After few minutes Taz found us and took us down with him again. After few more minutes, oxygen in my tank got very low below the threshold mark. We pointed it to him and he took us to the surface and asked us to swim to the boat which was pretty far away. It took us about 30 mins swimming in the ocean with the huge tank on our back.
We reached the boat and called it a day. We didnt do the second dive. He did refund half the cost and charged us only for one dive.
Unless you are a certified diver who is very confident, I strongly recommend you avoid Taz and aquatic adventures. It could be dangerous.
Now coming to the actual dive, he took us to a dead reef! There was absolutely nothing to see there. You'd rather put your head inside an aquarium!
We didnt see even fish! Just a few here and there, dead reef and one turtle! It was pathetic!
This was in complete contrast to our experience in Cancun where we felt completely safe, and a beautiful reef.
