What You’ll See & Do

Explore more of Rincón’s diving sites with the addition of a scooter. After completing a knowledge review and briefing on how to use the scooter, we’ll head to the beach.

We’ll begin by wading into the water from the shore and navigating through the ocean with our scooters to carefully selected dive sites. Your instructor will choose the spot with the best visibility so that you can explore the multitude of sea creatures in the surrounding waters.

Spot parrotfish, butterflyfish, blue tangs, sergeant majors, angelfish, and squirrelfish. We may also see octopuses, rays, and sea turtles. The Tres Palmas Marine Reserve is also home to a variety of coral including elkhorn.

Answers to Your Questions


No. This is a DPV Diver (scooter) training course. You might have so much fun that you want to do an additional DPV dive to earn your PADI DPV Diver specialty certification.

Water temperature in Puerto Rico ranges from 78 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter months (December-March) to 84 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer months. Most divers get cold in the winter months and a wetsuit is recommended. At other times of the year, wetsuits are good for abrasion protection. Wetsuits are available for rental for an additional fee, check out our rental rates.

The temperate waters of Puerto Rico are home to many species of fish of all sizes. Some we see every day are parrotfish, butterflyfish, blue tangs, sergeant majors, angelfish, squirrelfish. In fact, look at a fish ID guide for the Caribbean and we see those same characters every day. Ahhh… life in paradise.

The minimum age for scuba certification is 10 years.
