• Frequently Asked Questions

    How warm is the water in Puerto Rico?
    Winter water temperatures average about 75 degrees Fahrenheit (24 degrees Celsius) while summer temperatures average about 80 degrees Fahrenheit (26.5 degrees Celsius).

    Will I need to wear a wet-suit when I come Scuba Diving in Puerto Rico?
    Most divers wear wet-suits in the Caribbean. A 3mm is the standard year round. If the cold doesn’t bother you then go with a shortie or just your swimsuit especially in the summer. If you get cold easily think about possibly getting a thicker suit or wearing a hood. Puerto Rico Divers provides 3mm full suits with our rental equipment.

    What are the chances that I will get to see turtles?
    Seeing the turtles is often the highlight of our dive trips. Just about every day we find turtles during all of our dive trips, but they are wild animals and we can’t guarantee they will show up! 

    I've never been Scuba Diving before. What should I bring along?
    All of your equipment is included with any of the dive trips for non-certified divers. The only thing water related that you should bring is a swimsuit and a towel. We will be out in the sun for a few hours so sunscreen, hats, sunglasses and sandals are a good idea. Drinks and a light snack will be provided. 

    How deep are your St. Thomas Wreck Dives?
    The shipwrecks in St. Thomas are generally between 50 and 105 feet deep. Our morning trip to the shipwrecks are deep dives so we ask that divers signing make sure they are comfortable with these advanced dives.

    What is the minimum age for the Introductory Scuba Dive?
