The day that we dove there were just the three of us on the boat so the personal attention was nice. Nayda was friendly, caring and informative. Papo was very conscientious and made sure that we were taken care of. Our first dive was on the famous wall. Lots to see: a nurse shark, eels, lobsters, crabs, giant puffers, barracuda... More

Dove for 3 days with Nayda at Island Scuba in March. A little background - 2 teenage kids with ~20 dives experience and myself with a little more than 60 dives. Island Scuba did a great job of providing a personalized dive with 5-6 total divers. She and Pedro are fully bi-lingual and provided dive briefings and safety orientations in... More

Nayda, did a great job of making sure we were taken care of. The water was great. Great company on the boat and the location / beach is a local attraction and very busy on the weekends. Monday was less so and parking easy to find.

We loved our dives with Island Scuba. Our dive master, Naida, was so friendly and professional. Pavo (sp?) was our captain as well as an incredible "dive valet". Before I had finished drying my face from our first dive, he practically had my gear changed over to the second tank for me. Totally unexpected! The wall was beautiful and the... More

We found Island Scuba online and decided to go with them based off of other reviews. My wife and I are both PADI certified but without a lot of experience which we conveyed to Nayda one of the owners. We met them at the dive shop as planned and were set up with rental equipment which seemed perfectly adequate. When... More

We dove two days with Island Scuba, and had an awesome time. Two thumbs up! Hands down these were some of my most memorable dives in all my years. Pedro loves his operation and loves diving, so he makes sure each dive is enjoyable for his guests and for him. Fast boat and comfortable. Highlights we're the large female Moray... More

I Went diving with Island Scuba by myself a few days ago. There were six of us in a group but we shared boat with another group of people. The boat was pretty packed but has no problem. The dive was great, saw four sharks, some turtle, squid, and lobster. Ocean was a little bumpy. The crews are very helpful... More

I had a few days before the holidays to take advantage of low airfare/hotel rates allowing me to dive in the warm clear waters of Puerto Rico. Unfortunately, the weather was not very cooperative with high winds and rough seas. After canceling the first day due to conditions, Nayda and Pedro decided we would go out the next day, but...

Wanted to see sharks, but it wasn't in the cards on our trip :( BUT, two great dives and Pedro was awesome... cool, calm and collective, just what you want your dive master to be! Will definitely be back!
