Shhhhh!!  Please do not mention this to anyone, but for many divers Puerto Rico is one of the best kept secrets in the world for spectacular shore diving.  ♥

On the wild, wild west we have marine reserve “Steps” Beach in Rincón which is famous for excellent snorkeling; “Crash Boat” and “El Natural” in Aguadilla with healthy reefs and average 80’ vizibility; the “Isabela Caves” with mind-blowing caverns and swim-thru formations; “Los Tubos” and “Mar Chiquita” beach in Manatí with mediterranean-like underwater routes loaded with marine life; “Cerro Gordo” public beach in Vega Alta excellent for diving and 200’+ drop offs and trails along the camping sites; and last but not least, our lovely “Escambrón Marine Park” in San Juan with a diverse bottom composition like the thrilling Hilton Tunnel underwater which takes you out to explore the Labyrinths Reef.

Through this “Beach Day Trips” service you can enjoy a full day of underwater adventures off the beaten track.  Depending on weather conditions, certification level and the activity of your choice, this excursion can take you to explore any two (2) of these sites (1 site for the Discover Scuba) with your personal tour guide.

Important Note:  We do not have buses for transportation.  It is best if the client either owns or rents a vehicle, but it can also be arranged directly with our tour guides.  If that is the case, typically the guide transports guests and gear for a goodwill fee of $30pp to cover for gas and tolls.
