What you'll do

Instructor & guests will use face coverings while out of water during gear set up and removal. Personal items will be stored in closed sanitized bins. Hand spray &/or wipes will be provided. Instructor will set up equipment while clients wear face masks & keep social distance. After an oral presentation and orientation, guest will sit & don equipment, walk over to the calm beach entry area adhering to social distancing, don mask & regulator & practice basic skills in the shallow water. After this session, we’ll go on a shallow dive, and explore and interact with our marine life friends in the inner barrier reef. Small tropical fish will come close to us and may even swim with us. Divers need to be able to walk wearing full equipment. Individuals will shower with fresh water in turn after activity.

Karen

I came to Puerto Rico on vacation in 1973. I love animals, the beach, and summertime. I returned when it got cold in New Jersey, my birthplace, and I got into scuba diving. I fell in love with the business, the people, and island life. I met my husband, Tony, a local guy, and in 1982 I started my own dive business, Caribe Aquatic Adventures. I have been a PADI/NAUI scuba instructor and marine expert for 43 years working with THOUSANDS of divers and beginners. It helps having a job you love to do. I get excited every time I take people underwater. It never gets old—even though I do get old. And even I have not seen it all underwater. I know just where everyone hangs out on my reefs! Fish swim right along with me on my dives! Scuba keeps me young.
