Awesome trip! highly recommended! the crew was on point in everything!! they served mixed drinks and local beer on board, and a deli type lunch that was pretty good. The trip to the island was rough and many people got sick. I recommend u to get some preventive pills at the pharmacy before u go. Snorkeling was nice! I just wish we stayed longer at the beach, the 2 hours at culebrita went so fast (that is my only complaint) . The beach is a dream so beautiful truly espectacular!

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.

So fun to drive the mini boats ourselves, snorkeling and seeing fish and corals, plus some beach time made for a fun afternoon for everyone! My daughter said it was a 10/10 day!

It was an amazing experience! The crew members were so nice and attentive. Definitely recommend it to anyone who would like to take a day trip out of PR.

Very nice experience! Beautiful waters and nice beaches!
