Not to miss dive sites


going to Vieques in few weeks (yay!). Have only 4 days, though.

I would like to spend 1 morning diving. What is the best area to dive in your opinion (experienced diver)? I just started doing my research and would appreciate the input. Do you recommend any particular dive outfit? Trying to avoid crowded boats. Thank you.

unfortunately Vieques is not known for great shore diving. although if i were to shore dive, it would be somewhere around green beach and out and to the left at secret beach.

fir dive operators, check out the ads in the viequesevents.net web site

go to Culebra for a 1 day dive.

Much better all around for diving IMO.

We have been diving since 1977 and strongly recommend Nan Sea Divers. We have dove both Vieques and Culebra and the diving on Culebra is far superior. However, since you are only going to be there 4 days, save your diving on Culebra for another trip. It would not be worth it to go to Culebra to dive for the day. The ferry is unreliable at this time and with the 24 hr post dive flying restriction, stick to Vieques. My husband and I did keep our tanks and weights after our boat dive and went on a night dive on our own at the old pier in Esperanza.

We also strongly recommend Nan sea Charters. Rooster and Mark are great and have the newest equipment. We saw sea turtles, eels, tons of fish. I certified here and felt lucky to have such great instructors in great conditions. I'm hooked!
