Underwater magic
Ariel_N, Jun 2023
Our tour guide Joshua was amazing! We were really hoping to see sea turtles and we saw one within the first two minutes of being in the water. We even saw a barracuda! The water is crystal clear, and the tour guides will point out different types of fish and sea creatures. We had so much fun! There are so many beautiful fish in these waters, we didn’t want to leave.

Baby sea turtle!
Suesan_D, Jun 2023
Had a great time learning to snorkel and seeing the fish. Seeing a baby sea turtle feeding was amazing. I can’t wait for the next time. Joel was so kind and patience with all us newbies.
Waste of money
Lynzi_A, Jun 2023
Broken snorkels, guide was friendly but knew nothing about the marine life, saw one turtle and a couple of fish. It was a complete waste of money.
The instructor is the BEST part!

Donna_R, May 2023
Our tour guide Alex was very informative and attentive. Made sure we were all safe and enjoying the experience. Pointed out many different types of sea life and gave us lots of information and history of the area. Awesome excursion! Highly recommend!
Book with ELSA
Monserrate_B, May 2023
Beautiful experience my first time snorkeling. ELSA our instructor GREAT GREAT GREAT. Ver patient and knowledgeable.
It was fun!
Teja_K, May 2023
They asked us to be there 30 minutes prior but couldn't make it early due to the traffic. But they were kind enough to allow us in There were 4 of us along with 1 guide. He gave us all the instructions nicely. It was my first time snorkeling & I don't know how to swim. So I panicked a bit at first but I got used to it. Life vest is a must but they allow us to remove for few minutes in the middle of the trip (if interested). It was windy when we went there but not too bad. Honestly, we did not see see much of the sea creatures. Just a few interesting fish and 1 turtle. Check with them beforehand about when's the best time to book if you really want to watch sea creatures. We also saw some pyramid shaped metal debri that got there during a hurricane & a little coral life. The guide always stays close by and is always there to help. He carried a go pro to capture photos & videos of us and later gave them for free (I thought we had to pay). Overall, we liked it.
So this was my first time...
Dakota_O, May 2023
So this was my first time snorkeling, I had Anthony had a guide, and this was honestly one of the most fun experiences, I’ve ever had. Seeing the marine life in their natural habitat with an amazing guide, was the best part of my trip! Thank you!
Rosa_L, May 2023
Fun experience and seen many fish and turtles. Would it again but with Suva diving gear so I can actually go deeper into the water.
Our instructor Elizabeth...
Cortlen_F, May 2023
Our instructor Elizabeth was very helpful, kind and informative. She was very helpful in pointing out the sea creatures and made snorkeling a memorable experience.
Great Experience
Alexa_A, May 2023
We had a blast! It’s a great way to spend the afternoon and do something that won’t take up your whole day. Our guide Alex was great and we saw so many turtles and other sea life. It’s in Escambron so you’re close to everything o ce you’re done or can head over to the local beach. You got all your pictures and videos once it’s done. A definite must do in PR!
Water wasn’t clear. ...
Kimberly_A, May 2023
Water wasn’t clear. Minimal fish. Saw 1 turtle. Not sure if/how they even cleaned mouth pieces to masks
Try it! You'll love it!
SHANNON_H, May 2023
The best time ever!😍😍 You won't be disappointed! The instructor was very nice, informative, helpful, & a delight to learn from!
Dianalyn_L, May 2023
It was great the girls had fun we saw turtles and our guide was very informative. We would do this tour again.
Best value for money
Karina_T, May 2023
out of all the guided tours that offered in San Juan this is definitely the most immersive. You get a private tour with your group (at least we did) and our guide step by step made sure we were comfortable and safe and having fun. Our guide josh was super fun and had a wonderful personality. and make sure you have phone storage at the end because our guide was able to airdrop our videos and photos he took with his gopro. it was an unforgettable experience! the sea turtles were super cute. thank you again :)
The water was rough they...
Venice_F, May 2023
The water was rough they should have rescheduled it my tour guide didn’t help us at all… the worst thing to do in Puerto Rico
Great family experience
Isaac_F, May 2023
Wife and I brought our three kids (10, 13, & 15). Our guide was patient and great with our kids. First time snorkeling, they showed us everything we needed to know. Highly recommend.
Love the sea turtle!
Shelly_M, May 2023
Highly recommend! Had the option on site to upgrade to scuba and so happy I did. I got a personal underwater tour with Andrés who was absolutely fabulous pointing out several things like sea turtle having his lunch, sea slug, large shrimp waiting for prey in his nest. Absolutely recommend this activity. Staff was friendly and organized, a perfect addition to my weekend trip!
Great experience
Lornaida_A, May 2023
Great team on-site that made the whole experience fun and interesting. Our guide Josh provided a lot of information and answered all of our questions. Saw a ton of sea turtles. Would highly recommend this tour.

Ashlan_H, May 2023

Snorkel trip - May 2023
Jose_F, May 2023
We had fun learning how to snorkel. Didn’t see too many tropical fish but we saw some sea turtles. Our snorkel guide was awesome
Alex was a wonderful tour...
Shauna_K, May 2023
Alex was a wonderful tour guide! And he took great pictures easily shared at the end! You need little experience for this outing, however if you have experience it is equally enjoyable.
Great time!
Jennifer_K, May 2023
Had a really great experience with our guild. Wish I could remember her name, but I can’t! 😡. The only pitfall of this excursion would be there were so many groups there at the same time that it took away from the total experience. Idk if that’s anyone’s fault per se, but I was yelled at by some 30 something instructor when I got too far away from my group of 5. I’m a 53 year-old disabled woman just trying to enjoy herself in what little I can do. Getting yelled at by some uptight man who could have kindly said, “ma’am, your group is over there” is what I would have expected. It’s not my tour guide’s fault so it’s not reflected in this review. She was knowledgeable and lovely. Had a fun time and it’s worth it to go!! 👍
Didn’t get what we paid for
Brian_A, May 2023
There was someone in the water naked so we had to wait to get in. Our guide told us that if we waited we would get the hour back but when they finally got the man out. Our guide told the manager we didn’t want to do the tour which we never said. The when told him we wanted to still do it she said we only have 30min left in our tour.
super fun activity
lisa_s, May 2023
fun and the tour guide Gabriella, was very nice all the guides are so nice and made us feel safe and very comfortable
