Overall rating

4.8 / 5

based on 101 reviews

We were not able to go to Culebra due to rough seas. We went to an island closer to Fajardo and the marina. Boat ride was probably 20-25 minutes. It was still fun and the crew was fantastic. Snorkeling was average. Company credited back some money due to the itinerary change. It was a good way to get out on the water and we enjoyed the day.

This was an amazing experience. There were shuttles bringing us from different parts of the island to the location. The boat and the staff were perfect.

Guides Diego and other team members were really friendly and made our entire trip really pleasant and memorable. It was worth it

I have been on your tour several times & always have enjoyed each time

Very nice experience! Beautiful waters and nice beaches!
