It was terrible. I had issues breathing from the beginning with the snorkeling mask as I tried to tell the tour guy so I kept stopping. I know you are to breath out tour mouth but I LiTerally felt nothing but suffocated.The tour guy finally stopped and adjusted my mask and we kept going. By that time I lost oxygen. Thought he was taking photos of us swimming but didn’t get that and the only photo was when we took our life jackets off to dive in and after the second retake of the photo I panicked and started having a asthma attack. I don’t think he realized that it was happening because he kept saying calm down. I blacked out and couldn’t even float at that time and he didn’t have a life jacket on so when he was trying to help me I was holding on him and he was sinking. I’ve been snorkeling in Florida and this is by far the worst. I tipped the guy $20 cause I’m alive.

The guide was cool but we didn’t see any fish or turtles. Directions were not clear. We had to walk and swim to the snorkeling location. No transportation or boat.

An Amazing PR Excursion!

My wife and I had a wonderful time with this snorkeling experience! The crew was super friendly, fun, and were true locals. The beach there was beautiful, and the water was very clear with plenty to see from old sunken statues to sea turtles! Our guide really helped make this a lot of fun. We could tell he really cared about making sure we got the best experience possible, and left us with a bunch of pics and videos from his go pro. We recommend this tour to anyone looking for a great snorkeling excursion in San Juan from great locals!

Short but excellent

Juan was our guide and he was really friendly and laid back. He showed us several spots in the bay with cool wildlife. It was just us on the tour, so we had him as a private guide. The trip was shorter than advertised - just under an hour from start to finish. But, still worth it. Although it wasn’t as long as I would have liked, I feel like we had a great experience and gave us a taste of snorkeling. I would definitely recommend it for a first time experience.

Excellent customer service

Andre was awesome. He really went above and beyond with customer service. He was sure to point out and made sure that we were able to see the different types of fish, along with warning us of any dangers that we might encounter or might be present at that time.

Our guide didn’t really explain how to do anything, or communicate what we were seeing. It was basically like we didn’t have a guide at all. There was no discussion of how things worked, how we should stroke/kick. My mask kept getting water in it and not working, and without proper instruction I couldn’t solve the problem (or maybe it was broken). I would have liked to learn about what we were seeing under water as well, or to learn just a little about the ecosystem, the significance of this location, etc. We had one person who couldn’t swim so our guide spent the whole time with them, which really made the experience a bummer for the rest of us. We all clearly wanted our pictures taken, and would’ve expected our guide to be taking them, but had to grab her and ask each time which was annoying. Pictures as a result were minimal and not great.

Not worth the money.

This experience was extremely disappointing. I have been snorkeling in multiple places where I was taken out in a boat into deep waters. I literally could have done this at my local beach and saved the money. Do yourself a favor and don’t waste your money.
