Scuba diving in San Juan

San Juan is the capital and most populous city in Puerto Rico, located on the north coast. Scuba diving in San Juan is often easy and convenient, in the warm waters of the Caribbean. The reefs off San Juan are based on volcanic rock and are riddled with caves, overhangs, and swim-through tunnels, offering divers plenty of opportunities for exploration. In the active breeding grounds of the inner and outer reefs, divers of all levels can swim with an array of small tropical fish: French angels, jacks, butterflyfish, seahorses, crabs, octopi, batfish, flying gurnards, schools of snappers, and colorful sergeant majors. Divers also might find soft and hard corals that can be found right off the city's beaches. The nearest site is Escambrón, which is one of the preferred locations for night diving and dive training, and generally is available for divers of all levels (average depth is 7m/23ft, currents are weak). Escambrón can be reached from the shore, so the area has a mix of boat and shore diving sites, especially off the beaches in the Condado district. There is also good reef diving on Isla de Cabras. The Condado Reef is ideal for resort courses, certification courses, and night dives. Visibility is about 3-6m/10-20ft because of northern swells, but on a good day, visibility might reach as much as 25m/82ft.
