Scuba diving in Isabela
Isabela, also known as the 'garden of the northwest', is a municipality of Puerto Rico located on the northwestern part of the island. Best-known for its beaches and surfing. Jobos is the most popular beach, especially with photographers, and other beaches are Montones Beach, Pozo Teodoro, and Shacks Beach. Isabela also has a forest reserve, caves, lakes, rivers, and historical sites all waiting to be explored. A series of underwater caves, tunnels, swim-throughs, caverns, and passageway caves are located at Shacks Beach. The dive starts from the beach, and divers swim on the surface about 122m/400ft out to the entrance to a 9-m/30-ft deep blue hole. The caverns provide a unique and exciting experience that is different from normal reef diving. It is easy to get lost or stuck in the cavern system, so it is highly recommended to hire a professional guide who knows this dive site. Another interesting site is La Cueva Submarina, a cave where a great variety of reef fish, eels, rays, turtles, and even manatees can be seen (max. depth of 30m/98ft, currents are weak). Aguadilla, located a bit further on the west coast of Puerto Rico, also offers diving tours at Crash Boat Beach (for new divers) and El Natural (a gorgeous dive with a lot of sponge and reef structures for more advanced divers). Visibility is good, ranging between 10-30m/32-98ft.
