Puerto Rico’s tropical waters are a divers paradise
The average ocean temperature is 81F and underwater visibility averages from 60 to 75 feet near the beach. Offshore is easily 100 feet or more! While experienced people who like scuba diving may prefer boat diving, there are countless sites especially on the northeast coast near Aguadilla and Isabela for equally impressive shore diving.
Wherever you go underwater you are likely to find tropical flora and fauna that easily eclipse the most beautiful aquarium you have ever seen. Some Scuba Diving groups get up close and personals with sea horses that look like chess set knights, unusual arrow crabs, colorful parrot fish, and octopus, among the endless schools of sergeant majors and other colorful reef fish.
