2. Advanced Specialty Dives: You will complete a total of three (3) advanced open water immersions on your first day at either the Escambrón Marine Park or Copamarina Resort, and then complete the remaining two (2) specialty dives boat diving in Copamarina Beach Resort & Spa.  This will potentially allow for you to gain experience both shore and boat diving, as well as complete the required training including the deep dive exploring “The Wall” in GuánicAmazing located in the southwest side of Puerto Rico.

Private Training:

This is a unique service that we are happy to offer when only one participant has signed up and for customers wanting to receive a higher level of personalized attention.  The rate for this service is doubled, but it will allow you to schedule the aquatic sessions at your best convenience, assure an exclusive service for you, and optimize the quality of your training as the Instructor is fully focused on teaching you. Simply select the private training option after choosing your preferred date.
