What a great activity
, Dec 2021
We had a blast! The instructor, Matthew, was awesome. He took lots of pictures while we were down there and sent them to us quickly after the fact. It will be a treasured memory for a long time to come.
great place and highly recommended
, Nov 2021
Our instructor was very very patient with us. My GF was very anxious about scuba as she had a bad experience snorkeling in Mexico. He was patient and introduced her very slowly to scuba in a depth of water that she was comfortable in. By the end of the lesson she was very comfortable and scooping up shiny things at the bottom of the ocean at what I believe was 12 to 15 ft. I'll be bringing my friends to you when we come back in the Spring. Thank you very much
Great experience

5 Stars Eddie the man if your nervous don’t worry Eddie got you it was my first time and and felt very confident with his teachings. Wish it was a bit longer though .

My visit with my family to San Juan will always be a great and memorable trip. But I must thank instructor Eddie for making an experience that my daughter and I will always remember. The way he made sure my daughter was safe under water along with the group I deeply wanna thank him and the great people at Discover Scuba for making our experience a great one!
Fun, excellent dive!

I had previously done scuba classes at school in a pool. I’m so happy I finally did so in the actual ocean!(well, a bay). We saw some barracuda and squid along with beautiful tropical fish! Great experience, go in the morning!!
Ruined my honeymoon
, Jul 2021
God awful! The training was rushed and pressured! My husband and I didn't feel comfortable to continue and go on the dive! This was our anticipated highlight of our honeymoon and it was ruin! I don't recommend this with this company. Try someone else.

Hi, We are sorry to hear you didn't have the greatest experience. As how you are describing the experience is not correct. Our instructor had you and your husband plus another couple. Everything was done as its normally done and the instructor even spend more time training in shallow water the usual as your party wasn't very comfortable in the water. The instructor never rush or pressure anyone on the activity. The decision to stop the activity was taken by you as you didn't want to hold up more the other couple from doing the dive. Since we had other guest after your tour we can't prolong the activity for then what the schedule allows. For next time i recommend you do the activity privately. You you give us another chance in the future. Best,

Amazingly wonderful experience
, Jul 2021
Eddie Ibarra was an excellent instructor and great person!! We had such an amazing time learning from him, he was very clear and explained things extremely well. He made the entire experience seamless and comfortable. Thank Eddie and hope to see you again!
Amazing experience led by a Great staff and
, Jul 2021
This was by far the best adventure I had while in Puerto Rico. Since it was my first time scuba diving I was a bit nervous heading into the session. Thankfully, The Instructor Eddie was an amazing teacher and his knowledge and delivery of the material allowed me to shake off any reservations I had and truly enjoy this one of a kind experience. I lloved scuba so much that I’ve already began the process of becoming certified. I highly recommend to anyone with the slightest desire to discover scuba diving. You won’t regret it!
