Crew (Dottie, Ella & captain) were nice & very attentive. Boat ride to snorkel spot was only about 15 mins. Snorkeling the reef was amazing, but I would have preferred more time there. After snorkeling we anchored near the island and swam. The water was turquoise & clear. Absolutely gorgeous. Food: pasteries in the morning, sandwiches/salads for lunch, & fresh fruit after swimming. Light, but perfect for a boat trip. I would recommend this excursion and would have given 5 stars if snorkeling had been longer.

Great boating trip and snorkeling experience. Could be improved with small changes.

Fun trip out to snorkel Icacos on El Innovation. Then to the beach for a couple hours to hang out and swim and drink cocktails and enjoying lunch. The only downside is the number of people. Both boats that went out were packed with people. Also it is annoying when you are told to check in by 8:00 but People are still showing up at 8:30 and later and getting checked in. So by the time they load the boats it’s nearly 9:00

The staff was wonderful, the reef was excellent. We really enjoyed the stop at the beach. There was a cool old pier with lots of fish under it at the island that you could swim to. Lunch was palatable. Drinks were good. The boat itself was slow and old. The bathroom was clean!

This was probably our favorite excursion in Puerto Rico! The crew (Hectmar, Dagmar, & Solimar) made it so much fun! And the views were spectacular! While snorkeling, we saw a stingray, a barracuda, and lots of colorful fish! I highly recommend this crew and tour!!

The crew was very nice! The water was absolutely beautiful and so clear. If you stayed still, the fish would come close to you. I definitely recommend!

I booked this trip as a last minute alternative to Culebra and wow it was so worth it! Ecmar, Peter, and Hector took great care of our whole group. I can't swim and have only snorkeled once before many years ago. Ecmar was very patient and helpful as I got used to the water. Saw tons of beautiful fish. After snorkeling, we rode to Cayo Icacos and hung out there for a while. Had lunch (included), swam, sunbathed, etc. I'm traveling by myself and the crew was super thoughtful, kept checking to see if I was having a good time. A day well spent!

A worthwhile excursion

Snorkeling was just ok. Saw a few fish. Also, if you go in May like we did, I would recommend the afternoon trip because water was very brisk. The beach stop was great. Beautiful blue water and soft white sand. Guides were friendly, polite and accommodating. Hector was the guys name and I can’t recall the woman’s name. Drinks refreshing. When we got to the beach we decided to go in the water first because the food line was long. When we got back on board, most of the food was gone but the pasta salad that was left was tasty. If you want to hear the narration (history) part of the trip don’t sit at the back of the boat. We couldn’t hear anything. Total trip was about 4.5 hours. There was ample time at each stop.

Sky and Peter make this trip fun and funny! It’s like your snorkeling on a friends boat - we felt so comfortable! The drinks and food were never ending. Totally worth the trip. And of course the snorkeling was Amazing. Please bring cash to tip these folks - they were hard to make your experience exceptional.

It was a special treat to have a dolphin come in and swim with us. Drinks (coco libre) were very good. Staff was very knowledgeable and helpful for newbies snorkeling. My husband loved the chicken salad. The bread was fresh and I enjoyed my sandwich but I’m picky…no onions for me. Maybe a half hour longer snorkeling with little less beach would’ve been 5 stars. Overall experience was amazing. So much nicer than that rough ride to Culebra. Staff was upbeat and very helpful. Would very much recommend this. Although they should make you aware that you will have to go through a security gate for entry to the marina where they are located.
