This dive is OK but if you are diving the eastern end of PR you need to go to the islands.

Would have been better but it was the rainy season and the visibility was not so great. Saw plenty of sea turtles, stingrays and other sea life.

I love this dive; I’m partial to it because the dive company I worked for loved to dive this one. Always saw cool turtles and big rays and dolphins and nurse sharks. Great dive

A member had this to say, "Dives out of Fajardo were ok at best as the best diving in Puerto Rico is done on the south western side of the island not the northeastern side. If you are going to dive this is not the best option. I was in Fajardo on 12-14 09 for a birthday party. I almost skipped diving after reading the above. I dove with La Casa del Mar Dive Center and had a great time. Antonio the DM did a great job with people and wild life. The photos I posted are from the worst of the 4 dives I made. "

Diving on this side of the island is not worth the over a hundred dollars per two tank dive price. Save your money and go to Guanica and see the wall. I can recommend Island Scuba in Guanica, PR outstanding service.
