06/02/2014 Anonymous (Avg: 3.18 Review) - We got to dive this site, late August of 2013 & enjoyed it very much... vis was at least 60 ft., a lot of aquatic life around the old pilings. Next time we'll take a spear gun of sorts, to kill the lionfish. It's also a great snorkeling place, just make sure you're a decent swimmer, as it's quite a ways from the shoreline. Overall, great little dive!

07/15/2008 Susan (Avg: 3.66 Review) - We have dove at Crashboat beach several times, and every time we have seen something different. From Sea cucumbers to schools of fish, eels, jellies, and beautiful sponges. Take an emptied water bottle filled with cracker/bread crumbs and you will enjoy the fish entirely! We have seen schools of blue tang that exceed 200 along with dozens of other species. The largest school that we have seen easily exceed 800 fish, they were some type of sardine, wonderfully beautiful! Take your time and enjoy Crashboat!!

09/23/2006 Selena (Avg: 3.31 Review) - You will see a sign for Crash Boat off of 107 and turn left. Dive is good for beginners, as it is pretty shallow (25' - 30'). Easy entrance after a walk from parking lot right into water. Swim out to the concrete structures to the left of the pier.

07/22/2006 Mark Savage (Avg: 3.94 Review) - A lot of fish. Day dive yielded a small spotted moray and a small octopus. Very good for a shore dive.

11/27/2005 Chad Deloach (Avg: 3.21 Review) - Over all great dive. Only problem we had was having to watch for people jumping off the pier. A lot of different fish life to be found.

01/29/2005 Hector (Avg: 3.40 Review) - Great for the beginner diver. It is use as a training site by most dive schools in PR.
