What people are saying about San Juan

The crew was fun and made my boyfriend and I feel comfortable despite not being great swimmers. Drinks are included in the price and were very tasty. We also choose the transportation from San Juan and note you get picked up in a bus with other guests. The pick-up process was efficient and I always felt safe. Overall a great way to spend the day. Note I would buy snorkels ahead of time as they were about $30 per person at the pier and I felt a little rushed between drop off time and when the boat departed.

I had the absolute best time! My tour guide was so sweet, she has pink/green short hair! She made us feel safe and comfortable! She was very sweet and knowledgeable. My group was very friendly so we had a blast! I would definitely recommend this tour. 11/10 for sure

Mario was a fantastic host and so knowledgeable! We all had such fun! This was truly a memorable experience!
