I had a two tank morning dive booked to Desecheo Island and called to confirm the night before to make sure they were still chartering a boat there and was told yes. Drove three hours from Luquillo only to arrive and be told we were diving at a nearby reef instead because of a tropical wave that we should have been told on the phone. The "captain" showed absolutely no remorse and blamed our misinformation on someone else. We also arrived at check in time, 7:30 AM, and did not leave until 9 AM for the first dive.
After making an assembly like and loading all of the gear (including tanks) onto the boat, we headed out five minutes to the first dive site, Big Step. The reef was in horrible condition, the visibility was 20 feet at best, and the fish we saw were minnow size. Disappointing to say the least, after reading such awesome things about Desecheo.
The second dive was slightly better- the reef looked decent, we saw a bigger variety of fish (parrot, angel, lion), and the only redeeming quality of the entire experience was seeing two male king crabs fight.
Needless to say I would not recommend this dive shop if it was my only option. Staff is less than helpful and can't be bothered to converse with divers, gear is limited and of low quality, and the nearby reefs are not as good as the captain may tell you. Skip this dive shop and don't waste your money.
