Volume 3 - Puerto Rico Area 3
The South East and Vieques

There are fewer dive stores hence less diving off Puerto Rico’s south east coast, but the same is not true of the number of dive sites. There are many sites so the ratio of divers to sites is very low.

Vieques: The dive store is on the south coast of Vieques so the majority of the regularly used dive sites are a few miles south of the island. In the immediate vicinity of Vieques the water is shallow, but to the south and east is the end of the shallow-water plateau and deeper water can be found.

South East: Diving in the vicinity of Humacao is an experience in underwater jigsaw puzzles. Although some dives offer you a gentle cruise along slopes or walls, most are more like a tour through the crypts of an ancient castle¾ arches, swim-throughs, tunnels, deep crevices, and the occasional canyon are the norm.

See the book for 17 pages describing this area’s 23 dive sites and 3 dive stores, plus lots of information about the island, après dive activities, diving rules and regulations and marine life.
