Puerto Rico Dive Flags

Rules for PR divers and boaters

Update March 26, 2011: Jose O. e-mailed me this news: “I don’t live in PR anymore but I used to be a commercial fisherman (diver) down there and all my family and friends are still in the business. We were not required to have a diver flag until a couple of years ago, when the USCG started to enforce the rules. About a week ago, the USCG started to enforce a ‘new law’ requiring all the divers to display¬†ALPHA flags¬†and regular diver flags (red & white) while diving.”

Do you have more information on the Puerto Rican rules, regulations, or laws on the usage of dive flags? Please e-mail chris-(@)-interesting.com (remove the hyphens and parentheses). Thank you!

Happy Diving,
