What you'll do

We will meet for check in at Escambron Beach Park (type into maps or Uber). Once you enter Escambron Beach park's main entrance, you will pass the guard shack(if you are driving you will need to pay $5 cash for Parking) and continue straight down the dirt road to the very end of the parking lot to the left. Once you arrive, you will see a Blue Van parked. Please check in there 30 minutes prior to your scheduled time. Once checked in, I will go over a safety briefing and information on the sea life we will encounter. The tour will begin in the shallows where we will be trying on equipment and once comfortable we will begin snorkeling around the famous Escambron Marine park. Make sure you keep an eye out for all of the different sea life at our dive site.
Other things to note
This tour was designed for any level of diver, from non swimmers to olympic gold medalists. Make sure you wear your swimwear, bring water, sunscreen and a towel. I do have a place to store your bags while on the tour.

Francisco was an amazing guide! He worked very hard to make sure we saw as much as possible. Our group had some people who didn’t know how to swim and he assured them the whole time to make them comfortable. My family can swim and we did not feel held back at any point because of the people who needed more TLC. I saw 2 sea turtles, fish, sea urchins, a sunken ship ect. I would go back! Thanks!

Overall it was a great small group tour. Our guide was Juan, he was excellent, patient, funny and very attentive. Both my husband and I are 54 and we enjoyed ourselves. We had never done this but accomplished it. Juan explained the process of how to position your mask, breath only thru the tube, not your nose and how to position your body over the water, arms out, legs close to the top of the water & flap your flippers to move along faster. Swam above a lot of colorful fish, saw huge sea urchins from afar. It was a great experience even if no turtles.

This was still an amazing experience but I don’t feel this should be advertised as snorkeling with turtles. I am not at all upset at the tour guides as ours were amazing and I know they don’t control when the turtles are out. I loved seeing the fish and the coral and our guide was very knowledgeable on that and the island. I just feel the listing should be changed to more accurately describe the experience.

I went with a friend who doesn't know how to swim and we both still had an amazing time. Our instructor, Justin, was friendly and accommodating, especially when we wanted more pics in the water. Would definitely recommend to friends visiting PR

This is a total tourist trap. It is not the small personalized group experience that was advertised. And it is definitely not a 2-hour experience. You arrive to a kiosk on the beach where there are at least 75 customers doing the same activity. You sign in at a table with two inattentive staff members and they assign you to some of 10-15 groups, each led by a guide not listed on the ad. The guide I was assigned was Eliud. He was a very sweet and attentive young man—maybe 18 years old. We were in a group with 7 other people. The tour consisted in entering the water from the beach, where the water was filthy, murky, and fully covered in seaweed. There was very little life in this part of the water since all the reef was clearly very dead. There were a few ordinary fish, but no turtles—probably because there were so many other groups fighting for time and space. In fact on several occasions, guides from Other groups told us to leave the area so they could monopolize it. The water was dirty. The tour consisted of swimming through masses of seaweed to see fake ruins set up specifically to lure tourists. All told, we were in the water for maybe 40 minutes. You could obtain better views in cleaner water by avoiding this trap. Very very disappointing
