The trip was amazing!! The island was beautiful and the crew really did a good job making sure everyone was safe and having fun. The captain Juliana was very friendly and Ramon and Kevin did a great job with the tour and snorkeling activity. The trip had a great mix of fun education and relaxation. The tour guide (not sure how to spell her name) was exceptional, she knew a lot of history and knew how to have fun. I am looking forward to going again when I get back to PR. I recommend this tour to anyone going to PR you won’t regret it.

Amazing experience worth every penny! Our tour guides (Sid, Kevin and Joe) were so knowledgeable but more importantly well spirited. They were so full of energy that it was contagious ensuring that we had a good time. They made drinks for us, provided snacks and delicious food. You don’t even need to snorkel to have a good time. This trip to Puerto Rico was a gift for my mothers 65th birthday and when I asked her which part was her favorite, she said this tour was. :) Don’t think twice, book it!

Wonderful experience! My best yet! The crew was awesome and worked well together. The island beach was fantastic and it really was a beautiful adventure! Thank You

It was amazing, the team directing us were super friendly and knowledgeable.
