Parguera Divers is the only operator of the four in the southeast tip of
the island having a dive boat built as such. It is fast, taking you to the
wall in about half the time the others take to get there. It is clean and
accomodates 10 divers in comfort. Angel, the owner and boat captain has
been working at it for 12 years, first as an understudy to the legendary
Efra, from whom he bought the operation five years ago. His is the outfit
to go with if you are interested in a clean, safe operation where you are
treated according to your experience, without with the one-size-fits-all
restrictions of many other operators in Puerto Rico and elsewhere in the
Caribbean.
