Scuba diving in Fajardo

Fajardo is a small city and municipality in Puerto Rico located on the east part of the island, bordering the Atlantic Ocean. It offers divers the opportunity to explore reefs, caverns, mini-walls, and channels near a string of small islets. The reefs are decked in an array of corals ranging from delicate gorgonians to immense coral heads. Divers may see manatees, rays, parrotfish, stingrays, anemones, reef lobsters, turtles, a glimpse of a dolphin, and more. The dive sites off the shore of Fajardo (in a 5-mi/8-km radius) are Dolphin Point, the Cracks, Lobos, Cayo Icacos, Palomino Island, El Diablo, Red Hog, and Sandslide (there are many types of corals, such as sheet corals, brain corals, clusters of thumb corals, and elkhorn corals). Palomino Island is surrounded by sand channels and a unique double barrier reef. El Diablo has vast coral gardens (depth of 15m/50ft) and marine life ranges from octopi and barracudas to manatees. Red Hog (for experienced divers) is the newest site, with a panoramic wall that drops from 24-354m/80-1160ft. Visibility usually exceeds 20m/65ft.
