Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    A fantastic 4 hours private trip with super hosts. They took care of our every need and showed us beautiful places in the south of the island from their catamaran. The tapas was so good and our glasses were never empty. The boat was super clean. I Absolutely recommend a trip with Jani and Tanja!

    The couple running the yacht are experts in sailing and they instil confidence in everyone on board. They are also very entertaining. Nice snorkelling spot in the middle of the trip.

    My ten year old daughter and I had an amazing introductory scuba diving experience with Miguel at Puerto Rico Diving. It was her first time diving, and Miguel's patience, kindness and encouragement made it truly special. We enjoyed a fantastic time, encountered beautiful fish, and, most importantly, my daughter absolutely loved the experience. I'm delighted that her initial exposure to scuba diving was so positive, sparking a keen interest to continue. A big thank you to Mike for his superb assistance in booking and providing and driving us back to our hotel. If we return to Gran Canaria, we'll certainly choose Puerto Rico Diving for another scuba adventure.

    Pleasant morning on the sea. We saw flying fish which were interesting to see, unfortunately no dolphins. Obviously no fault of the crew, as they say, it’s a big pool! It’s a really nice boat, crew were friendly. We pulled into a bay with other boats and had lunch. It was really unstable here so we all opted to get out of the bay quick as at least one of us was sea sick with all the rocking motion. If I was to go again I’d maybe take a less expensive option on a bigger boat as this might have been more stable when anchored up? It was a good trip though at the end of our holiday.

    Really good kayaking trip, enjoyed the heck out of it, our guide Pablo was very funny and interesting. Didn't expect half of what happened during the experience, but enjoyed it even more because of it. He also took great photos

    Excellent experience from start to finish. The pre-trip comms for pick up and kit sizing were friendly and efficient. Pick up was bang on time. The welcoming team were great, they made everyone feel comfortable, made sure our kit fitted well, and did all the work taking it to the snorkelling location. They chose a spot suitable for the conditions on the day and the range of abilities in the group with a comprehensive briefing showing us all the different fish to look out for. There was so much to see! The team sorted out all the kit afterwards, it was effortless for us participants, and really fun morning.

    Great combo of snorkeling and kayaking, just the right amount of both activities. Caves were not so sensational but nice addition to the kayaking. Friendly and nice guide 👌🏼

    A last-minute decision to bus it into Puerto Rico, from Vacendario with no real plan, when we came across Blue Water Diving. We were made to feel really welcome by the staff, (even the grumpy Northener owner was a pussycat really😅 )
    All the equipment was provided and of a high standard. The short boat trip to the reef was great fun, and the hour-long snorkelling session was wonderful. I'd highly recommend calling in and taking a trip out.

    What an amazing way to spend the afternoon! The boat was fantastic and immaculate. The day was made extra special by Christophe and Maria, thank you so much. We will be back next year for sure.

    Fantastic first scuba dive for myself and my two boys (13 & 11). Everyone was very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable, and all spoke excellent English.

    We watched a film to familiarise ourselves with the equipment and basic safety, then got kitted out with wetsuits for the 5 minute walk down to the beach. There was a short wait in the sea whilst the instructors finished off the previous session (it was fun floating about in our wetsuits 🙂), then we got fitted with our tanks, flippers, and masks, and were led out to the mouth of the harbour. We had two instructors between the three of us, and the boys went down to between one and two meters (because of their ages), and my instructor took me down to 5m. It was like swimming in a tropical fish tank! We would absolutely recommend Delphinus to anyone considering scuba for the first time, and we can’t wait to take the next step onto a full dive course!

    I did 18 dives with Blue Water Diving. Everyone is so friendly, safety conscious and there are so many different dives with an amazing assortment of fish, eels and rays to see.
    I rented top quality dive equipment and always feel safe in their hands.
    My partner is a nervous diver but was put at ease by his dive guide.
    The boat is outside the dive centre which makes it so easy and quick to load up.
    I can't wait to dive again with Blue Water Diving!

    Climbing, abseiling, learning to handle huge waves and whitewater just beneath the cliffs, jumping from 2-12 m into the pounding waves and snorkelling in a calm bay was the perfect adventure for two really adventurous and outdoorsy swedes.

    Would DEFINITELY recommend and would even go again! Book this if you want to experience a real Canadian adventure.

    Bring some snacks and some water and you’re fine.

    Can’t wait to go back to this place with Pablo next time!
