I just completed my PADI open water diver certification at Aquatica Dive and Surf. It was great! I completed my online e-learning course which took me about 10h, before going to Puerto Rico. After doing a review test at Aquatica, we spent the first day in a pool practicing a range of scuba diving skills. On the second and third... More

I did one day of diving with this shop in the winter. I had an okay time, but in retrospect it was not great and there were some issues. We went out in heavy surf that I wasn't used to and I was struggling a lot, getting knocked over, having a hard time getting back into shore, etc, and on... More

Well, I m a bit concern about your " concerns", so let's rephrase this... safety ...after 30 years and thousands of divers , we have a perfect 0 accident record with minor incidents as a fire coral knee burn... we re very picky about choosing sites and conditions, so, waist high waves entries are normal in beach dives and we...

Jose Rafols was a great surfing instructor who really made the process of learning how to surf a fun experience. He is very encouraging and friendly, and I would choose him to be my instructor without hesitation next time I come down to Puerto Rico.

Great scuba instruction, however I advise highly against paying for multiple days of diving and or scuba training in a lump sum but on a per day basis. Weather can easily delay a trip and haggling refunds is very difficult with management.

Weather can move time, however is hard sometimes to deal with people like you, that since the moment you walked in the shop started mandating on how things needed to be done without even understanding our operations. We even charter a boat exclusive for you and even refunded some money even if it wasn't our fault that you wanted to... More

Even though their shore dives prices are just as high as a boat dive, you have to drive to meet them at the shore and there is no discount if you own your own equipment. I have not found the diving in Puerto Rico good enough to support the kind of prices they want. I plan to save my diving... More

Well the reason being , is that we don't actually charge for gear on our dives. Theu re all inclusive. We specialize in small , individual services for our guided dives and instruction, so we do have to charge more than the cattle operations. Should try one of our dpv dives! It is awesome! More

I first dove with Jose in 1997. Upon returning in 2017 and reminding him of our dives, and showing him his signatures in my dive book, I am certain he had no recollection of me, but he treated me as an old friend. He was extremely fair and trusting with his scuba rentals and his dive prices. The service he... More

I finished up open water dive certification with Aquatica Dive and Surf, during a recent trip to PR. I had completed the course and pool work a couple of years before, and was rusty on some of the test material. Rai, and the crew at Aquatica made me feel comfortable, prepared, and ready to dive. I can't recommend them enough!

I can't say enough good things about this place. Our family was in PR for 8 days and they took good care of us the entire time we were here. They took us out on several awesome dives, fixed some of our equipment issues, and were super friendly. They had good prices and a good selection. They even told us... More
