Communication between the staff and I was prompt and helpful. They called me a few times to make sure everything was in order. They also made sure I stayed very safe- there was some concerning weather and they made sure I was to be safe and enjoy the training.
On my arrival, my instructor, Dale, explained all skills with clarity and humor. When we got in the water, he made sure to assess my needs at every point. He encouraged me and thanks to him, I passed!
The area where they teach the course, Escambron, is very cute, confined and has some observable marine life. The facility was accessible and comfortable.

“My wife and I are spending the winter in Puerto Rico, and decided to get our dive certifications while here, which is something we’ve thought about for a long time. We researched the different scuba operators, and are SO happy we went with Scuba Dogs for our 3-day open water diver course. Doing scuba for the first time is kinda scary, but our guide (and everyone else we met at Scuba Dogs) was awesome. Our guide (Dale) has done like 15,000 dives, and it shows. He’s got so much real world experience, and also so much teaching experience that it feels like he taught us more than the PADI course even covers. He challenges you in a good, safe way, and we went from being nervous on day 1 to feeling so much more comfortable and confident in our abilities by the end of day 3. As mentioned above, we looked at a lot of scuba operators, but Scuba Dogs one of the only (or the only?) PADI five-star certified one here. Overall, I can highly, highly recommend them. They are fantastic.”

Great experience, awesome instruction!! Thanks Paco, and everyone at Scuba Dogs Escambron, I’ll be back:)

Had a wonderful teacher. My friend came to visit we ended up being the only two people in the class this day. Felt safe and had such a fun time. 10/10 recommend 🙂

I had a 1-tank dive scheduled for 8 AM. The guides were on time, extremely polite and kind, and worked with me on the unique things I was looking to do/see while in the water. Very much loved the location, the team, and can’t wait to come back!

We had the absolute best time and ended up booking a 2nd dive for the next morning. You have to request Manolo for the BEST dive experience! He went above and beyond to make our experience! Our friend was a discovery diver and couldn’t of had a better person to introduce her to our underwater world!

This was my family’s first time snorkeling. We had a fantastic experience. Guide was very helpful. We saw 3 sea turtles, beautiful fish and even happened upon a Manatee.

Terrific introduction to scuba diving. Safety training was comprehensive & we always felt comfortable underwater. Long dive with opportunity to see lots of aquatic life. 5-stars!

My boyfriend and I did a dive with Scuba Dogs last Wednesday the 16th. And our dive guide Paco, (I hope I got his name correct) but he was great! He really took the time to help me and advise on my breathing and buoyancy. He gave us information on the history of the site and just made our dive a good one. Unfortunately the visibly was not great that afternoon but Paco was able to show me my first Tiger Fish 🙂 It was short vacation and we were hoping to get back out to do another dive but we were not able too. If we come back to Puerto Rico will definitely schedule more dives with Scuba Dogs.

Relaxing dive just outside Old San Juan

I went for a fun dive just outside Old San Juan with Scuba Dogs. Francisco was a great dive guide. We did an easy, shallow, shore dive with some man-made swim-throughs. We spent about 50 minutes under water with a max depth of around 30 feet. It wasn’t the most exotic dive I’ve ever done but it was fun, convenient, and well organized. I also saw a pair of octopus up close, which was a first for me. Recommended if you have a free morning and want to get in the water while you’re in San Juan.
