Puerto Rico was the ONLY divable location where my wife and I took
four suitcases of dive gears, stayed in San Juan, drove all around
the island, and even took ferries to the islands of Fajardo and
Culebra, in search of scuba dives; and came home without doing a
single scuba dive, thoght we did some nice snorkeling in the
beach of Culebra where the corals grew to the surface of the water
in many spots.

Granted that was before the days when Puerto Rico was known for
scuba activities. Never been back there ever since. :-)

Been there. Almost done dat.

Re: Puerto Rico Great place for diving !

Why You don't dive in a Island that have to areas , Atlantic Sea and
Carribean Sea. Well in and other point of view , You need to go to a
scuba dive store , and they will show you a lot of place to dive. But
if you don't know were to take the bus they will leave you.

The only thing i don't see is the reason why you don't do a single
scuba dive?

Re: Puerto Rico Great place for diving !

DIVING PUERTO RICO
THE NEXT BEST THING TO SLIPPING INTO AN AQUARIUM
by Madelyn Miller

Since diving in Puerto Rico is one of the Caribbean's best-kept
secrets, most of the sites remain untouched. Every dive trip is still
an adventure, every diver an explorer. And diving in Puerto Rico may be
the next best thing to slipping into an aquarium. Underwater visibility
can exceed 100 feet, and land and water temperatures hover around an
easy-to-take 78 degrees all year rounds. (I wish the pool at my health
club was this consistently warm)

During the last Ice Age, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands formed one
land mass. Today, the waters connecting these islands are uniformly
shallow, and the marine life is spectacular. Exquisite communities of
elaborate patch reefs and dazzling reef fish sit in clear turquoise
waters rarely deeper than 760 feet. Reached by boat, these sites
challenge both novice and experienced divers. Dive conditions are
consistently favorable, underwater photography is exceptionally good,
and night dives are memorable.

Scuba divers see very special things in Puerto Rico. Pristine reefs,
spectacular walls, intriguing caverns, and mangrove-topped cays define
the tropical waters that surround Puerto Rico. They form the backdrop
for dives that are as dazzling as any found in the Caribbean and as
diverse as the surrounding marine life. Multitudes of fish coexist with
endangered manatees and humpback whales. Corals abound, including
species that are mere memories on other islands. Dive options are as
varied as the sites themselves. Explore reefs that lie within a splash
of your hotel room, or ones that fringe remote islets far from shore.
start your scuba experience with an easy half-day resort course, or
enjoy an advanced dive 100 feet below the surface. Puerto Rico offers
beach dives, shallow dives, boat dives, wall and ledge dives, night
dives, cave and wreck dives, and they are all memorable. Operators are
NAUI or PADI affiliated, fully qualified professionals using Coast
Guard certified boats; they are also enthusiastic veterans of their
dive region.

Where to stay? The exquisite Palmas del Mar Resort is home to the only
on-site dive operation in Puerto Rico. Noted for more than 3,000
coconut palm trees swaying over the property, when you check in at the
open-air lobby, you'll be greeted by Roberto, a multicolored parrot and
the soft sounds of the lobby's mini-waterfall.

The resort gives new meaning to the phrase "a room with a view". From
the balcony of a beach-front villa, the Caribbean, mysterious and
exotic, is like a chameleon: frequently changing colors from deep blue
to jade green. The sky over Palmas del mar is surprisingly predictable,
soft blue and usually dotted with fluffy white clouds. Even after you
awaken each morning, you'll think you're still dreaming. Because you'll
have a breathtaking view of the Caribbean sea or mountains or beautiful
man-made lakes and waterfalls.

The resort actually looks like the hillside coastal towns of the
Mediterranean. Pastel stucco building with red tile roofs terrace down
the sides of hills to the sea. Walkways twist and wind their way
through lush canopies of trees into sunlit plazas framed by riots of
flowers.

Most dive sites are located between five and 20 minutes from the docks
at Palmas del Mar and include views of multicolored coral, reef walls,
small caves, overhangs, swim-throughs and pinnacles hosting a variety
of tropical fish.

If you get a chance, try diving off the western coast of Vieques, a
small offshore island that marks the easternmost boundary of Puerto
Rico. Here the waters are relatively shallow and studded with
impressive elkhorn coral. Conch and large barrel sponges are also
abundant, and grouper, angelfish, morays and other fish are common
sights. Green Beach, shaded by towering palm trees, has an offshore
reef in 10 to 30 feet of water that features sloping valleys and huge
coral heads. Much of Vieques remains unexplored, with many outstanding
dive sites still waiting to be discovered.

In between dives, you can wade through Old San Juan, one of the
best-preserved historic districts in the New World, explore the Camuy
Caves, the biggest river cave system this this of Europe, visit a
century-old coffee estate , or try your luck in an opulent casino. From
rain forests to dry forests, pineapple fields to golf courses,
folkloric festivals to classical jazz and salsa concerts, kayaking to
hiking--it's all right there in Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rico is also the Caribbean's most accessible island. It offers
the flavor of a different world, with the comforts of our own.

It's the Atlantic OCEAN, and the Caribbean Sea!

Right there are TWO clues that you don't know anything about scuba
diving than running spams for some shop that hired you to spam.

Not many people who dived much in the Caribbean would misspell
Caribbean, and ever fewer would think the Atlantic is a Sea. :-)
I can tell the difference in the salinity of the water in the
Atlantic (Bahamas) and the Caribbean, because of my fine-tuned
buoyancy (in lead requirement when I dive). The Atlantic Ocean
is definitely LESS salty, for whatever the Gulf stream picks up.

I said so in my post. That was over 15 years ago, and while
there was a scuba shop in Culebras, nobody knew about it.

Yeah, Canucks can't spell -- but that's not the issue with Baaad
Blackass Cretin.

He was SPAMMING for Culebra and the Caribbean, and he misspelled
BOTH of those words which were the center-stage of his SPAM.

Furthermore, even Canucks know that the Atlantic is an OCEAN, don't
they?
And not the Atlantic Sea.

But Dan's question to you was: where have you dived that was *not* in
PR?

According to your blog, you were still in training, but due to receive
your scuba certificationt this week, and you have not gone scuba diving
anywhere other than Puerto Rico. So as far as we're concerned, you
have nothing else to compare your diving to, so your opinion doesn't
have much strength.


My request to you would be for you to go do a shore dive from Hotel
Normandy this next weekend. Hotel Normandy is on the north coast, east
of San Juan. Afterwords, tell us how much you liked that dive and how
it compared to your dives at Los Tubos and Mar Chiquita.

Re: Puerto Rico Great place for diving !

Well , Normandy Hotel is not the location , the area is called "El

Escambron" is a real dangerous diving area. Is located inside the
"Parque del Milenio" (for bob too) .

The Cost Guard in that area have a lot of warninig for Surfers and
Diver. Diving is a high risk sport .

The blog show my adventure in scuba training and i don't pretend to

A suggestion: if you want people to be able to find your blog to read

acceptable to include one URL in your signature at the end of a posting,
with the major caveat being that you're posting real content and not
merely contriving an excuse to display your URL (that becomes SPAM).
Don't think that the really experienced readers can't tell the
difference.

Yes, I remember over-exuberance. Fortunately, some people were good
enough to offer advice from which I learned and gained perspective.

Not at all: what I hadn't revealed is that I have dived in PR.

This is why I suggested that you go do the shore dive at the Normandie
Hotel's beach: this way, we have a dive in common from which we can
more directly compare what we think is a "good", "so-so", or "bad" dive.

After you perform that local-for-you dive, let me know what you thought
of it, and I'll do the same.

It's wasting too many keystrokes to type Baaad Blackass Cretin for
your name and BBC sign every time, so I'll just call you "black"
henceforth.

Black, I see you must lost quite a bit of sleep, beginning at
1:23 am today (August 31) and have already made 6 posts in THIS
thread alone, most of time making some nonsensical statement,
without reference to any previous post ... to display you
complete ignorance about posting, diving, and netiquette about
SPAMMING.

At least I know you were talking to ME in the post in question.


> well i found that in a post from 1998 , that mean ..

You must have found it in some chat room or Board? LOL. In
the entire history of USENET nobody has ever called me an "idot".

Now if you do a groups.google search for "idiot Reef Fish",
you will indeed find 810 hits (of threads)!

But most of those hits pertain to posts by IDIOTS in rec.scuba
such as the Aldora IDIOTs, and other IDIOTs, and also MY posts
about these idiots.

BUt that's not all. The hits also found numerous posts that
had the three different words "idiot reef fish" in the posts,
such as,

" at alt.aquaria in the thread 'Idiot saltwater fishkeeping!'. ...
the catches of food fishes in most reef areas are ... "

and they were about food fishes and other kinds of idiots,
unlike yourself, "black"!

>
> Reef Fish NGC-I (NewsGroup Certified Idot) since 1998 ?

That citation doesn't exist in USENET!

Since 1998? Don't be ridiculous. Those IDIOTS are mainly the
rec.scuba.* idiots and mental midgets. But there are idiots
in other ngs too. rec.scuba.* has no monopoly and exclusive
rights to IDIOTS.

In fact, you already qualified for the Mental Midget title!
It takes a little bit more work to earn your IDIOT status.

So, I did a google search with the same "idiot reef fish" BEFORE
August 31 1995, and google found 84 hits! :-)

Speaking of "certified Idiot", google actually found ONE certified
Idiot, named Nick Simicich, in a post in Nov 1990, because ...

NS > except that some idiot was backing ... the divemaster leads you
NS > onto the reef once you ... Found an octopus, a porcupine fish

See, it had all three words: idiot, reef, and fish.

Nick is a certified IDIOT, and also well-known in LISTSERV lists
as a psychopath who fancies himself to be fascist dictator and
censor.

You new found "buddy"(?) Hugh Huntzinger is also Nick's pal.
Hugh and Nick tried to censor and kick me out of Scuba-L, while
I was DIVING in Cozumel. It backfired. EVERYONE except those
two (and a few idiots) left Scuba-L.

Hugh (aka hh) is now well-known as the "Supreme Hypocrite",
for admitting that he holds a "permanent grudge" against me.

Senor loco "black"! You're keeping us entertained better than the
beer-drinking goats I saw in Acapulco!

In English, we don't have to put funny wiggles on top of letters
or use letters that are always silent, like "h".

You have only one friend here, that's the Supreme Hypocrite, hh.

I have to give you credit for the originality of your question though.


Of all the idiots I've seen in rec.scuba.* since 1987, you are the
ONLY one who asked the stupid question of whether I have dive
certification more than OW, as if it mattered. :-)

Just for you, I'll reveal the international Top Secret that I am
PADI Master Scuba Diver (which you may not know is the highest non
professional ranking) #9001244347 -- and the first 4 digits means
the card was issued in Jaunary 1990.

But I hasten to add, getting the Master Diver cert was not worth
the plastic it was printed on. My Master Diver cert was BEFORE I
leaned how to dive, as can be seen from this post, years later:

http://tinyurl.com/be87z

RF > In the late 1980s, I USED to be a Master Diver who was wearing
RF > 18 lbs of lead diving in Cozumel, was an AIR-SUCKING PIG, and
RF > drop to the sand bottom on descent ;-),

I should have recalled that when I was discussing the subject of
buoyancy control and proper weighting. My PROPER weight at that
time was 8 lbs, which was the upper limit of what I used in Cozumel
since the mid 1990s, even after I gained some body weight and fat.

So, "black", did you learn some lessons from the above? ;^)

I never experienced that pleasure, but I did dive PR out of Fajardo,
Humacao, and Guanica. It ranks somewhere above Lake Perris but below
Zihuatenejo, i.e. really crummy. Even Cancun was better and it's a heck of
a lot closer and cheaper.

BTW HH, I'm home already. Nursing sore legs from Tuesday's 3,000' downhill
ascent into Davos and a sore belly from too much rösti und Calanda Edelbräu,
but it was a fun place. At first I thought I was the cause of the flooding
there in the same way that I was responsible for the tsunami, but then I
read about Katrina and realized that the Swiss got off pretty lightly. I'll
e-mail you some interesting pics if they turn out interesting when I review
them.

If you have gone as far as Fajardo, you could have found better
diving in Culebra -- which is not exactly world class, but hardly
as crummy as ... Cancun.

Unfortunately the first ferry in the morning gets to Culebra too late to
dive and I couldn't find any mainland PR shops to take me there on the days
we were in the area. Maybe another time. The topside attractions aren't so
bad in PR, but the traffic is horrendous: like dropping Los Angeles on an
island.

I would have thought they had better ferry connections by now. They
do have some corals that come up to the surface of the water, as in
Palau and Hunauma Bay in Honululu. We snorkeled there which was
almost as good as diving.

My Normandie shore dive had ~20ft viz and was very green. Since BBC is
a PR native and newly-minted OW diver, I was trying to encourage him to
go over there to see what is considered by those of us not from PR to
be a "sucky" dive...every newbie needs a reality check :-). FWIW, I
believe that I've previously commented that I'd prefer a shore dive at
NJ's Shark River Inlet because its not any worse and its a lot cheaper!

Welcome home. Edelbr=E4u is a nice lager, comparable to Belgium's
Stella. Hope you quaffed some of their local white wines too...quite
nice.

BTW, any interest in maybe doing a guided hiking tour in CZ sometime
next year? As an optional extension (before/after), I have a friend
who lives in Prague who's a whiskey distributor :-)

No problem...just let me know if there's anything you want to share
with the gang and I'll put them online for awhile.

can you learn to post some context so we can at least see which of
Bob's posts you are ridiculing?

I'm not his biggest fan, but right now I've got fishy over you any day
of the week.
