We were worried about the weather since it was very windy. Put at ease by the owners. Conditions were favorable. Crash Boat Beach dive destination. Extremely professional. Would HIGHLY recommend this group. Easy to make reservation. They are also flexible as we had to move our date after reservation made. Dive instructors so good!

Thanks to both you and Raul. It was a great dive at both Crash Boat and Natural. We had an early dinner in Isabella at the restaurant you recommended, Caracol. That was a beautiful view of the beach with all the waves crashing into the rock formation. Carole and I walked down to Shacks Beach. This is the best area... More

Completed two dives, one at Crash Boat Beach and the other at Nature Beach just down the road. Both dives were absolutely amazing! Jose was extremely helpful and accommodating once I arrived and his assistants Rai and Joel led the dive group. Both Rai and Joel were extremely professional, patient and knowledgeable. I had an incredible time and really enjoyed... More

I just completed my PADI open water diver certification at Aquatica Dive and Surf. It was great! I completed my online e-learning course which took me about 10h, before going to Puerto Rico. After doing a review test at Aquatica, we spent the first day in a pool practicing a range of scuba diving skills. On the second and third... More

Jose Rafols was a great surfing instructor who really made the process of learning how to surf a fun experience. He is very encouraging and friendly, and I would choose him to be my instructor without hesitation next time I come down to Puerto Rico.

Great scuba instruction, however I advise highly against paying for multiple days of diving and or scuba training in a lump sum but on a per day basis. Weather can easily delay a trip and haggling refunds is very difficult with management.

Weather can move time, however is hard sometimes to deal with people like you, that since the moment you walked in the shop started mandating on how things needed to be done without even understanding our operations. We even charter a boat exclusive for you and even refunded some money even if it wasn't our fault that you wanted to... More

Even though their shore dives prices are just as high as a boat dive, you have to drive to meet them at the shore and there is no discount if you own your own equipment. I have not found the diving in Puerto Rico good enough to support the kind of prices they want. I plan to save my diving... More

Well the reason being , is that we don't actually charge for gear on our dives. Theu re all inclusive. We specialize in small , individual services for our guided dives and instruction, so we do have to charge more than the cattle operations. Should try one of our dpv dives! It is awesome! More

I first dove with Jose in 1997. Upon returning in 2017 and reminding him of our dives, and showing him his signatures in my dive book, I am certain he had no recollection of me, but he treated me as an old friend. He was extremely fair and trusting with his scuba rentals and his dive prices. The service he... More
