What people are saying about San Juan

Amazing experience! Guides were great! Word to the wise this trip is not for the mobility impaired. Lots of riding, walking uphill on uneven streets. You enter the bay off of a small ladder on the back of the boat. I took my 75 yo mother and wished I’d known this ahead of time. It was not a place for a walker. She had a wonderful time but it was a struggle at times and she was not able to get off the boat to swim. Otherwise a wonderful trip!

My kids and I did this. Unfortunately, my son and I fell into the ocean early on, but the guides were dp fantastic about helping us get upright again. We chose not to continue, but my daughter did. The response from the team was nothing short of exceptional and professional.

This is a must do bucket list activity! Swimming at night in the bioluminescent bay was so much fun; the water temperature was perfect. Our family would do this again! Our tour guide, Cruz, was amazing!

I can’t remember our tour guides or captains name but they were funny and the absolute sweetest. They definitely made the whole experience a great one.

Great experience! Guides were fantastic, funny, knowledgeable.
