Unlike other Caribbean Islands, you are unlikely to find diving and snorkeling opportunities on its mainland shores. This is because multiple rivers flowing into the sea brings in sedimentary deposits. The upland construction and pollution from a densely populated island coupled with poor soil erosion management has affected the corals and the reefs. However, there is no need to be disappointed.

The east coast presents some fantastic snorkeling and diving opportunities for the adventurous types. The small islands off the east coast make up what is popularly known as La Cordillera Islands. These islands offer some exhilarating diving opportunities into the crystalline and blue waters. You can experience a whole new world of underwater adventures by exploring these islands on a charter.

Private operators offer undersea exploration through the blue Caribbean waters. You can watch the reefs all day long and enjoy the beauty of the exotic underwater marine life from close quarters. Power catamarans can be used arrive at Culebra where the Luis Pena Nature Reserve offers some of the best snorkeling experiences in Puerto Rico. The waters are surprisingly calm and crystal clear almost like a lake. The large reef running across the preserve is a stunning sight. It is not uncommon to sight rare underwater species such as the brain coral, elk horn coral, turtles and even a few dolphins if it is your lucky day.

Flamenco is another place which presents some great swimming, snorkeling and beach combing opportunities. Winter season may see the sea getting rough with high speed winds and waves rising to dangerous levels. In such conditions, it is safer to sail to the nearer islands of Icacos, Palomino and others. Diving can be a great experience as the warm blue waters of the Caribbean obliterates the need to wear a wet suit. At 70 to 150 feet, the visibility is excellent. You can explore numerous great reefs and small islands on the eastern side out of Fajardo that extends out to the Spanish Virgin Islands.

Private operators can be contacted for beginning to advanced dives available at affordable rates and includes all gear required for safety regulations. If you are looking for some snorkel adventure in a small boat, you can head to the Chico Marina where there are experienced operators offering small motorized boats for exploring hitherto unseen areas. It can be a great learning experience and tells you more about fishes, coral life and sea life from the area.
