Food was bad and knowing that the beach was full of jellyfish they took us and we were unable to enjoy the beach.

Icacos is beautiful!!

Great crew with incredible customer service!! They were so attentive! Highly recommend. The lunch was wonderful
A must do activity. Do it twice or more

The tour was AMAZING! I would definitely recommend to friends and families..! Captain Joe, Adrina and Dalia (hope I named the crew name correctly, but if not, so sorry about that..) were super friendly and providing an excellent service.

We had an amazing time! Crew was friendly and helpful. Lunch was good. Drinks were plentiful. Snorkeling and Iacos were spectacular. All around terrific value.
Fun and good value!

Excellent and organized tour guides. Felt safe in the water and learned about Puerto Rico. Bottomless drinks also helped!
Amazing excursion!
, Jul 2022
It was a great experience. The snorkeling was great, the water very clear and clean, and the guides were fabulous. I did not give it a 5 star because I do not feel it was totally family oriented. Some of the music played had foul language and sexual innuendos as well as the tourist speaking in language that was not appropriate for young kids. I feel there should be guidelines given to tourists in order to keep the excursion a happy medium for all; families, teens, young and older adults. However, overall it was worth the trip! Beautiful island and snorkeling experience was worthwhile and amazing and the food was fantastic! Thanks!
Wanted to snorkel longer, but a 10/10 experience.
, Jul 2022
Only 4/5 starts because I personally think the snorkeling portion should be longer than the beach portion. BUT, that being said. It was absolutely incredible. Saw so many beautiful fish, sting Ray, giant barracuda. Life changing. The tour guides were so nice and really cool to hang with. And the lunch/drinks were actually FIRE!!! BOOK THIS ASAP!!
Great time, host, experience

This was a great experience. Solimar + Hectmar + Dagmar >>> They were fun and taught us a lot. I felt safe. I would def do this again if I’m ever in San Juan.

The tour guides were knowledgeable and helpful concerned for our safe return from the lagoon. They made it possible to see the bioluminescent organism even without a full moon on the earliest trip. Highly recommend this tour
Very nice

It was a such a wonderful trip. We booked Culebra Snorkel trip for July 7th, and they canceled on us due to lack of ferry tickets, which is very unprofessional. Then we were hurried to book this trip instead, which turned out super fun. They have their own ship, so we don’t need to worry about the ferry tickets. I saw a lot of 🐠 🐟, the water is Crystal clear, and we got 1 hour and half on the beach 🏖 Both girls guide on the ship are very fun and helpful. Tips: Get a water proof phone bag, you’ll have a lot of fun video record those colorful fish.

Absolutely amazing

The best experience we did on the island. The people were all amazing and made sure everyone had a great time. Would recommended to anyone who’s looking for amazing sights with amazing people on board.
Beautiful day on the water
, Jun 2022
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
Worth it
, Jun 2022
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!

Great experience with a great crew. We were lucky to have a fun time and see all the fish and the island of Icacos.
