I just finished my training today and got my scuba open water diving license. Pat on the shoulder for myself first ... and it was so much fun! ... I was a bit skeptical at the beginning since Black Beard's dive training is only 2 half days and some other places offer 3 or 4 days. But according to my... More

These guys were great! Very organized with easy pick up locations. The tour went above and beyond in teaching you about the ecology of the area and the biology of the organisms at mosquito bay. They discuss the variables that effect the organisms responsible for a greater bioluminescence. Very fun.

I booked two tours with black beard. The staff at the Isabel location were incredibly accommodating and very helpful is letting me know what to expect during each. I did the stand up paddle board with snorkeling, and then the hiking trip. I did both the same day, and was with two different guides. The stand up paddle board with... More

Will not return. Very rude. How do you expect to keep a business open like that. Custermer service is the worst. Took some family. Long ride there. For nothing. Had the feeling only take care of selected few. One of the worst places i ever seen.

We stopped in this shop several times during our week in Vieques - mostly for gear rental. When we were buying and renting gear, the women that helped us were phenomenal! Very knowledgeable and very accomodating (that's the reason for the average rating instead of poor or terrible). However, when we called to inquire about conditions & good snorkel spots... More

We did the Bio Bay kayak tour with Blackbeard. The driver, Randy, met us right on time. He was friendly and knowledgeable about Vieques and shared a lot of that knowledge with us. Our guides, Jordy and Ernesto, were great. Our tour consisted of 10 people, ages 70 (us) to about 7. They related well to this diverse group and... More

I regularly travel to the south east part of mainland PR (Palmas Del Mar) to visit family and do a little diving. I've logged 250+ dives all over mainland PR but I have grown frustrated by the absence of dive operators in/around Palmas. The nearest shops are clustered around Fajardo where the diving is disappointing.....so, on this trip I decided... More

We often rent snorkel gear on vacation - much easier than traveling with it - but many times the equipment is uncomfortable or leak. This equipment was like new, fit nicely, and did not leak at all. Plus it was reasonably priced.

We booked our Bioluminescent Bay tour through Black Beard and we were impressed with everyone from the van driver, Angie, to the tour guides Ernesto and Chris. These people clearly love what they're doing and enjoy sharing island adventures with the tourists. Great people and professional organization!
