Comments we were pleasantly surprised by the SeaVentures operation and by the resort, Copamarina. The dive shop is nicely equipped and the rental gear is good quality and reasonably new. The instructor/DM, Tony is very safety conscious and very pleasant. As an instructor myself, it was interesting watching him evaluate divers' abilities and experience. There was a couple who had a number of dives under their belts, but hadn't been diving for several years. Tony was right there with them without making them feel self conscious. Getting back on the boat was tricky because the wind had picked up. Both Tony and the captain of the boat "Captain Bill" were right there making sure everyone got back on without incident. Another nice touch was the safety bottle hung over the side of the boat. The boat, by the way, was newer and spotless. the captain explained life preservers,extinguishers, and oxygen before we left the dock. We discovered this place by accident, on our way around Puerto Rico, but we had such a good time that we came back the next day. We are going back soon to Puerto Rico and plan to dive a few more days with these guys
