Sea Ventures had a very professional team of divers who took very good care of us despite tricky weather. They were very careful about safety of our teens who were trying the exploratory diving. The coral reef was beautiful. We got to see turtles, huge lobster, and a small sting ray. We hit a time of stormy weather that dimmed visibility but Sea Ventures still found us a good dives despite tough conditions. We enjoyed a fun day together out in the big blue and we felt well cared for by the Sea Ventures team.

Angel and team were fabulous. They were patient, professional and even though the weather wasn’t great, they were still able to make it a memorable dive experience for my wife and son (11) who both certified, and for me. Thank you! We highly recommend Sea Ventures
Dive Center!

Luis and Jill are the wonderful married couple running the show who are ready to answer your every question!

Stand outs on the dive crew on board include Dive Mastwr Saeed (I hope I’m spelling it right) for his underwater expertise and advice to make you a better diver as well as his cool and calm demeanor.

Valerie another Dive Master was incredible at spotting and pointing out sea life to our whole group underwater.

Alvin yet another Dive Master brought out his go pro and 10 minutes after the dive was over has already sent and shared all his photos and videos of us with the sea turtles out of generosity! Talk about a quick turnaround.

Jay. The absolute best character! Yet another dive master but one who stands alone. Jay certified our three new open water divers and they won’t stop talking about how easy it was to learn from someone who is so patient and kind! Jay also has a collective island experience like no other about Puerto Rico. I wish that I could simply go hangout and learn more from this wonderful man!

If I were back in Puerto Rico I would dive with sea ventures again on the special request that it was with Jay and Saeed due to their personalities and their ability to treat everyone like family.

Sincerely,

A very satisfied customer!

I imagine I will come back and edit this review with more and more amazing pictures from our experience. Here’s one of my little sister immediately after our first dive out of 10 that week!

First, I was very impressed with the equipment. It was like new. Next, they arranged for me to be picked up at my hotel. Next, the service we got from the on board staff was fantastic. They helped me with my gear, helped me to the edge of the boat to jump in, and help me back on to the boat. The dive was geared to the dive level of the group and they carefully watched everyone. I had a great time.

I am going to start by saying of all the dives I have done on my beautiful Island of PR this has been the most awesome dive trip I have had, Starting from the booking with Mrs. Yilmaria her knowledge and respect for pro divers and the respect for veterans outstanded me super big Ms.Valery she was so nice and friendly,the Capt. Jose was this kind of person that invite you to talk to him very friendly, the dive master/ instructo Sayd,Tito and Nelson what a pair of friendly professional and awesome divers. Now that I know about this dive shop in PR I am definitely will book my dive from now on with them. Keep up the good work, muy buen trabajo quede imprecionado de verdad.

My boyfriend and I recently dove with Sea Ventures on the morning trip to the Fajardo sites. We were on a boat with one other group of 3 divers. Our guide Jay was fantastic! We are new divers and he was very knowledgeable and calmed our per-dive jitters. He knew the best places to find some really cool sea life, and we even saw 9 turtles on our second dive! The staff overall were all very helpful, friendly and accommodating! I would recommend Sea Ventures to anyone looking to get out on the water (or underwater) in Puerto Rico!

Sea Ventures is a top notch operator, with clean and well maintained boats, good quality rental gear, and professional dive guides. They had great snacks, and the boat had a head and plenty of room to move and gear up. I think they take max 16 divers per trip, and clearly put safety first. While I can't knock them for doing everything by the book and keeping the group to the roughly the same length dive, our dives ended with roughly 900 to 1000 psi in our tanks, and I wish there was a bit more allowance within reason for more self-paced diving with your buddy. I don't love being told it's time to start my safety stop when I have 1100 psi left in my tank and we're quite close to the boat. Who doesn't like to maximize their bottom time? That said, I would definitely dive with Sea Ventures again, and they are overall a very kind, capable, and professional team.

Dear district Thank you for taking the time to review our company. I appreciate it very much all the nice comments you have to say about our boat and our staff. I understand where you’re coming from, But unfortunately when you’re doing guided dive, sometimes it’s hard to control and to be able to make sure that everybody can maximize all of the air left in the tank. We have to run dives per schedule of the boats so that means if we say the boat needs to be back at one or 2 PM other people have already made arrangements after the Diving trip so we need to comply in order to, make sure that our customers are happy in that sense as well. So I know it’s difficult to not be able to fully please everybody. We will talk to the staff and see if there’s any way that we could maximize at least a few more PSI‘s as much as possible, which is what they are already told to do. Anyway, we do hope to see you again in the future or more Dives.

Sea Ventures exceeded our expectations in every way. The entire process from the time we showed up in the morning until we stepped off the boat in the afternoon was efficient and well organized. The equipment we used was new and in very good condition, the staff was friendly and well organized, the boat was fast, spacious, and comfortable. We weren't rushed but they didn't waste any time. My daughter did the "Discover Scuba" course and my son and I were able to do two dives at very nice sites. This was the highlight of our vacation.
I highly recommend Sea Ventures, you won't be disappointed!

My boyfriend and I did our full PADI Open Water Dive certification through these guys in Ceiba and had an amazing experience. It was laid back, but also felt very professional and safe. We had a pool day with Jose where we went over everything we'd learned in our online class, and then day 2 took it out to the ocean, which was so much fun and such an incredible experience. By day 3 we had an incredible dive for fun and saw turtles, octopi, stingrays, lots of fish and even heard whales nearby. The boat crew is a team of lively, professional guys who hustle and bustle around you, and make sure you have everything you need to not only make the trip comfortable, but also fun. Victorielle took us on our two days of open water and he was a great guide. Can't wait to dive more!

We are a family of 3, both adults are experienced divers. I am an OWSI, and my wife is AOW. My daughter is 18 and a new diver(15 dives)
The Good: Excellent dive boat. separate rinse bucket with Sanitizer. Dive Master on the boat
The Bad: If you have your own gear you have to transport(carry) to the boat. the distance from the parking lot to the boat and back is 600-800 yards. No cart was offered or available.
The Ugly: My daughter rented gear and was confused with the BCD tank strap, the captain saw we were having trouble and instead of helping he announced to the whole boat how not to install the strap, and to leave it to him because he did it every day. Getting back on the boat after the second dive was difficult due to ruff seas. My wife (61) had trouble at the ladder and ended up getting bucked off the ladder up onto the deck, The captain was there to help but only rolled his eyes when this happened. The captain did then hold her tank to help her get back up, but my wife wanted to take off her BCD at this point. This generated another eye roll from the captain. I was in the water and watched this all happen. I have been diving since 1996, and have never been treated this way. I must say that we dove with Island Scuba the day before and received excellent customer service

Dear Mitchell, Thank you for the review. Im very sorry to read that you had some issue with the trip. I apologize you had to carry the gear, we do have. Cart but was out for repairs for that week. As far as the captain goes im sorry his intentions of helping out for wife set up het BCD were misunderstood. We do the set up of the gear for mostly all our customers every day so we were just trying to help in making sure it was safely installed. I hope to see you again in the future and again we apologize for any inconveniences.
