La Parguera: The Endless WallAt Copamarina Beach Resort & Spa in Guánica, we were greeted by Pedro Rodriguez from PADI Five-Star IDC Sea Ventures Dive Center. It was another early morning and the sea was calm. Our first dive was at Fallen Rock, part of the 22-mile-long La Parguera Wall. I went to 108 feet, my deepest
The next two dives were reef dives. Eliel "Bam Bam" Ramos, the divemaster, ended up being my dive buddy. This first dive was Andrea's Reef, which was discovered by Bam Bam and named after his daughter. At this circular reef, I spotted a moray eel, Atlantic stingray, lobster, crab hiding under a ledge and many varieties of fish. The second dive was The Pozas, where I enjoyed the swarms of yellowfish hiding under the ledges. The fish appeared motionless while I snapped photos of them.
The last dive was at a site called Justin's Fault. It was fascinating, despite the strong surge at 50 feet. I saw my first nurse shark, barracuda, pufferfish, pargo and juvenile drumfish. The dive was worth the lack of sleep.
