Aguadilla is located along Puerto Rico's west coast, which is where divers will find some of the most interesting underwater sites to see.  The water conditions can be rough here at times, which has helped to shape reefs and other formations in a way that you simply won't find in calmer waters.  This town is home to a technical dive center, so if you've got some experience and are hoping to hone your crafts, this is a great dive destination. 

There are two dive operators, a dive shop, and a small number of dive sites to choose from.
