Snorkel on the Island of Vieques, one of the most beloved snorkeling destinations in Puerto Rico. The island, 21 miles long by 8 miles wide, is ringed by secluded beaches with limited access.

Depart from San Juan on a comfortable vehicle that will take you to the Marina in Ceiba, where the boat departs. Head to a secret spot away from the crowds on the island where the reef formations are unspoiled, the beaches are pristine, and the sea life is truly the best in Puerto Rico. Start with a 101 learning session and briefing about safety and snorkeling before getting into the water. Once you feel comfortable with your gear and are ready to snorkel, a guide will take you to diverse parts of the reef and point out sea life. Make two stops where you can enjoy snorkeling or swimming on the beach (boat does not arrive at the pier, so you must swim to arrive to on shore).

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.

Matthew was our guide and we loved him! Great experience, really good for people who haven't been snorkeling (or it's been a long time). Safe, low stress, but still exciting and lots of marine life to see! And to boot, the beach at this location is soooo pretty. Thanks for a great experience, Matthew!!

Easy, informative, and they care about the sea creatures. I never felt ignorant or unable to do something. So Fun!

Was great fun. Guide had good humor and was very knowledgeable.

Very nice experience! Beautiful waters and nice beaches!
