To start off we walked around for some time looking for the right person as the instructor was not the person picture. Totally okay but would have made the search a bit easier. Steve and Gracie were the instructors. Pretty much off the bat we realize that Steve was only there for a job. He was not personable at all and kind of snappy towards Gracie. When it came to safety there were a few small things that Gracie questioned and he kind of disregarded, these things were small but still has someone from the outside looking and it made us feel a bit uncomfortable. As soon as we got to the water we asked Gracie to be our instructor.She was kind of easy to communicate with and patient with us as we have never been scuba diving before. I would recommend if you do this activity to ask for Gracie to be your instructor.

All I have to say is Scuba Steve, Scuba Steve, Scuba Steve! He was our instructor and guide for our scuba experience and I have to say I was very impressed with how thorough and quickly Steve could train us up so that we could go out and make the most of our time exploring the artificial reef. It was technically a confined space inside the semi-walled off harbor, so it was great for training beginners looking to begin the learning process for scuba diving. Steve was as entertaining as he was knowledgeable and we had a blast learning the basics and diving down to about 15-20 feet below the waterline. There were all sorts of neat little artificial/man-made structures for us to swim through and pose with, where Steve was more than generous enough to take tons of pictures and videos of our group. Visibility was out of Steve's control, but we still saw several schools of fish and overall the dive was an absolute blast. Steve also was very helpful with outlining the process for anyone interested in earning their independent divers license, and the company running the tours offers avenues for any interested in pursuing this route. It was an exhilarating experience and we all felt like we were in good hands under Scuba Steve's supervision. I cannot wait to dive again, thanks Steve!

Absolutely loved this experience! Paul is an incredible instructor and made me feel comfortable during the entire time! (I was nervous before hand but he made it easy to calm down because of his thorough instruction.) Would highly recommend to other beginners - this is truly a great way to explore a part of Puerto Rico ❤️

Was my first time scuba diving with little knowledge of swimming and it went great! My instructor was Leo and he took the best care of me and the other person! It was so much fun and it felt safe, would definitely do it again
