Feb. 15, 2009 - PRLog -- When Christopher Columbus discovered Puerto Rico back in 1493 he wasn't aware of the fact that he had found one of the most beautiful pearls of the Caribbean Sea. And it seems the spirit of camouflage hasn't left the island ever since. In scuba diving circles, Puerto Rico is hotly tipped to be the best kept secret of the Caribbean, these days. Hardly known and half forgotten, are East Puerto Rico's most beautiful dive sites, where one can enjoy scuba diving with dolphins, manatees, sharks and sometimes even with huge whales, passing by the island. The variety of underwater life, the colorful coral gardens of the Caribbean sea, the clarity of the water and the friendliness of the Puerto Rican people  are a combination that suits every scuba divers dream!

Today, Puerto Rico is better known for its great beaches and surfing grounds like 'Little Malibu" than for scuba diving. Compared to other scuba diving destinations in the world, like Egypt or Thailand, Puerto Rico has only a few dive centers and diving schools. Even though the diving is amongst the best in the world, Puerto Rico hasn't been discovered by the masses yet.

East Puerto Rico Diving is one of the dive centers that offer scuba diving tours along the east coast of Puerto Rico. Dive tours are starting at the Yacht Club in Palmas del Mar. The comfortable 37ft long purpose built dive boat of East Puerto Rico Diving  can reach up to 20 mph and will get you to any of the dive sites in no time! The dive boat has an extra wide swim platform and a custom built, extra deep dive ladder so getting back on the boat is easy, even in choppy seas.

Diving in Puerto Rico offers a wide variety of undersea life and coral reefs hardly seen anywhere else in the world. But Puerto Rico also offers a great variety of sightseeing, like Old San Juan and its famous fortress El Morro and the El Yunque Rain Forest. Beautiful long sandy beaches are waiting for visitors all around the island. Puerto Rico is worth more than one visit! If scuba diving is not your thing, enjoy snorkeling or swimming in the warm Caribbean water, sun bathing under palm trees with a cool cocktail glass in your hand or go for a walk through the only rain forest of the US!
