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
