Scuba Diving in Puerto Rico
Western Puerto Rico is a diver’s paradise. The average ocean temperature in Puerto Rico is 81ºF and underwater visibility averages 60 to 75 feet. Offshore visibility is frequently known to top 100 – 150 feet or more. Enjoy undisturbed coral formations, a variety of reef fish, eels, dolphins, turtles and sharks. Numerous shore dive locations make it easy for non-divers to enjoy the trip as well while snorkeling off the boat or straight from shore. If the waves are up in Rincon, head down to the South Coast of the island to dive The Wall at La Parguera – one of the best dive sites in Puerto Rico. New divers can do their Open Water PADI certification in Puerto Rico, or go for a “Discovery Dive” where the instructor will keep with you one-on-one in shallower waters for safety.
