With over 50 dive sites to choose from, our daily trips are led by our dive professionals who choose the day’s destination each morning.

Daily Tours for Certified Divers

Culebra is located on a shallow plateau between Puerto Rico, Saint Thomas, and Vieques. Our dives typically max out at 60 feet (18 meters), making them perfect for divers of all levels. Our boats are comfortable and never crowded (6 divers max) and located directly behind our shop so it couldn’t be easier! YOU ARE REQUIRED TO PROVIDE PROOF OF CERTIFICATION. We cannot guarantee an internet connection at our shop the day of your tour, so please plan accordingly and be responsible for your certification card. We welcome proof in hard copy or electronic format. Prices do not include  sales tax or crew gratuities (Venmo now accepted).

  • We provide wetsuits and our boat has a covered cabin so sunscreen is typically not required. If you do prefer to use sunscreen, we ask that you please use ocean-friendly sunscreen. We are proud to be an eco-friendly operator, and are asking you to help by not using sunscreens that contain oxybenzone, homosalate, octinoxate, octocrylene, or nano zinc, among others. For a complete list, click here. These ingredients have been proven to hurt our reefs. You can learn more by reading this article released by NOAA. Please DO NOT trust a brand just because it claims to be ocean-friendly. Do your part to be an educated consumer, and read the ingredients on your products. We proudly stand behind products like Stream2Sea, whose sunscreens are safe for our ocean. We stock Stream2Sea in our store for your convenience and for the health of our waters. If you are not sure if your sunscreen is safe, please feel free to ask us!

Dive Insurance

Hopefully you never experience a dive accident, but if you do, your primary medical insurance may exclude scuba diving as a hazardous recreational activity and/or may not provide coverage when you are traveling out of the country. If it does provide coverage, it may pay only a minimal amount for chamber treatments. There are also often large out-of-pocket payments for deductibles and co-pays. These alone can total thousands of dollars. Recognized worldwide, let Divers Alert Network (DAN) provide you with secondary coverage to ensure your peace of mind while diving. Sign up today!

Air Fills

Culebra Divers routinely conducts air quality testing with TRI Air Testing, Inc. As an AIHA accredited laboratory, they provide worldwide compressed air testing for fire service, scuba, OSHA, medical, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, food/beverage, industrial companies, and the Government/Military.

We provide quality air fills for our customers.  Please bring your C-card and ensure your tanks have a current Hydrostatic Test (every 5 years) and Visual Inspection (annually).  We encourage you to drop off your tanks early and allow us 24 hours turnaround time if possible.  Please note: we do NOT accept aluminum tanks manufactured prior to 1988.
