Dive Sites in Fajardo
Dive sites are selected the morning of the dive by the captain and crew,
with the priority being to find the best visibility and comfortable sea conditions,
taking into account prevailing winds and swells.
Pyramid: Depth: 30 feet
When Discover Scuba and snorkelers dive through the current-free depths, they view a coral rise teeming with breathtaking schools of small fishes, anemones and small reef lobsters.
Sandslide: Depth: 15 to 70 feet
Coral, coral, everywhere! Immerse yourself in corals ranging from sheet coral to brain coral, and from clusters of thumb coral to elkhorn coral, as you surround yourself with sea life including manatee, dolphins, green and hawksbill turtles, barracudas, groupers, lobsters, conches, large hermit crabs, moray eels, cowfish, boxfish, small tuna, jacks, octopus, blowfish, and more.
Sebation: Depth: 20 to 45 feet
Play hide-and-seek with stingrays, spotted eagle rays, occasionally dolphins, small nurse sharks, conch, manatees, bahama bluerunners, grouper, puffers, blue tangs, octopus, and eels as you dive along a very sandy channel running East to West with mainly sheet, brain and thumb coral mounds on the North and South side.
Big Rock/Little Rock: Depth 35 - 80 feet
Are you looking for buried treasure? You might find it here among the remnants of boat wrecks, as well as in the round coral mounds with a mud bottom and a reef that reaches to the shore of Cayo Palomino. Or maybe the real treasures are the sea creatures including abundant grouper, schools of blue tang, goatfish, Bahama bluerunners, conch, stingrays, hog snapper, mutton snapper, stoplight parrotfish, snake and moray eels.
Cayo Diablo: DEPTH: 45 - 50 feet
You can't always get there (because of swells and high wind), but when you can, Cayo Diablo is the place to be. A fringing reef wraps the island in rings of hard and soft corals. Mild and strong currents carry in schools of barracuda and the occasional eagle ray along with clear, beautiful water. There's also beach for surface intervals with excellent snorkeling right in front.
Lobos: DEPTH: 6 - 35 feet
Where do you go to find yellowtail snapper, huge schools of blue tangs, sergeant majors, dolphins, stingrays, spotted eagle rays, anemones, reef lobsters, toad fish and octopus? Check out the mouth of the Atlantic and Caribbean that features clusters of elkhorn, sheet, golf ball, thumb and fire coral mounds with a sandy bottom.

The Wall: DEPTH: 15 - 75 feet
Why imagine a living wall when you can see it? Sheet and thumb coral with spots of fire coral create a “wall,” with various species of sponges and sea fans waving between the corals. Queen trigger and trigger fish, cowfish, boxfish, grouper to schools of goatfish, and mutton snapper hiding amongst the sea whips are also part of the mix as well as spotted eagle rays, lobster, spotted drums and lots of parrotfish.

Spurs: DEPTH: 15 - 65 feet
Are you looking for dramatic formations of sheet coral in the form of small caves and overhangs? Then visit the sand channels with coral mounds from 15 to 45 feet with a small wall that drops off down to 65 feet. The sand channels run East to West with the wall running North to South, and they're filled with octopus, parrotfish, eels, groups of spotted eaglerays, stingrays, schools of squid, lobster (including reef and shovel nose). And speaking of drama: in March and April, Spurs is a calving area for dolphin. In February, its on the migratory path for pilot whales. At all other times of the year, it’s a haven for grouper, barracudas, cowfish, and boxfish.
Spurs & Grooves: DEPTH: 10-70 feet
You’ll find spur-and-groove fingers growing from a sandy bottom that slopes from 10 feet down to 35 feet, and a brief wall coated with coral and sponges that plummets from 35 feet to 70 feet. Best of all, invertebrates frequently crowd the top reef and turtles are often found in the shallows.
