Angel (owner) & Matt (dive master) provided excellent support.   Dive
boat is spacious, clean, well organized, well maintained.   Excellent
pre-dive briefings, assistance in gear preparation and water entry.  Dive
master very observant, helpful but gave appropriate dive profile freedom
for experienced divers.   

Dive profiles were excellent multi-level, each featuring a period at about
50 feet that's great for DCS prevention.   Fish life, while not prolific in
Puerto Rico, was varied and approachable.   Corals were in excellent
condition with abundant black coral and crisp white brain corals.   Fans
were in near-perfect condition.   Spotted a small octopus, and a school of
Atlantic Spades swam right through our group.   

Between dives and afterward, crew was very warm and friendly, giving lots
of background on Puerto Rico, recent weather conditions, typical diving
conditions at various times of year, and even helped us to the car with the
wet & heavy gear!   No payment due until after the dive, which I find
admirable and common for well-run and confident dive operations.

I only wish we'd lodged closer to Parguera; we had a neary 3-hour drive
from San Juan.   Had we known what an excellent operation Angel runs, and
how pristine the diving is, we would have stayed over and dived again. 
Each member of our group of 4 divers was very happy with this experience. 
Parguera Divers also has an excellent website. Highly recommended, without
hesitation.   Will return, but will stay much longer.
