Puerto Rico Report: Day 1

The group finally arrived after a bit of a flight delay yesterday, but we couldn’t wait to begin our diving in beautiful Puerto Rico.

The weather was sunny and beautiful as we started our first day of boat diving. Swells were approximately 3-4′, the winds were light, and the water was a comfortable 82°F.

Our first dive was on the Andreas Reef with visibility approximately 75-80′ and a maximum depth of approximately 55′. There was a great variety of aquatic life with many schools throughout the reef.

The second dive was a dusk/twilight dive on the Laposes which may account for the slightly less visibility of approximately 50′. Maximum depth was again approximately 55′. There appeared to be less marine life on this reef compared to the first dive, but it was still a great time underwater.
