  • Isla Verde, Puerto Rico: Jet Ski Tour

    1. Isla Verde, Puerto Rico: Jet Ski Tour

    Experience a thrilling adventure in and around the San Jose Lagoon and all the way to the coast and beaches of Isla Verde on a 90-minute jet ski tour through the tropical waters of Puerto Rico's north coast. After a short safety briefing and training session, depart from the home base at Cangrejos Yacht Club and journey into the best waters of the Caribbean along the beaches of Isla Verde. Enjoy a memorable journey into the mangroves of the San José Lagoon, pass under the Baldorioty de Castro Bridge, all the way down to the Teodoro Moscoso Bridge, one of the biggest bridges in Puerto Rico. After, pass by the coast of the beach of Isla Verde. Make a stop to jump in the water and go through the Isla Verde coast, one of the most beautiful spots in the area. Admire the incredible scenery as you explore the water world. Let loose and experience the raw power of your jet ski.

    I had never been on a jetski so I was incredibly nervous. I did not go as fast as others on the tour but I enjoyed the experience. I wouldn’t exactly call it a tour though. We were given basic instructions for about 5 minutes and a quick road map of what we would see then everyone took off. A guide was in the front of the group while another was in the back but everyone did their own thing.

  • From Fajardo: Full-Day Culebra Islands Catamaran Tour

    2. From Fajardo: Full-Day Culebra Islands Catamaran Tour

    Discover an area off the beaten path on this full-day catamaran tour to the Cordillera Islands. Departing from Puerto Del Rey Marina in Fajardo, the 45-50 minute journey on the high-speed catamaran will take you to the beautiful Cordillera Islands, off the coast of San Juan. Upon arriving at the Cordillera Islands, the captain will decide which beach will have the best conditions for the day, usually Flamenco or Culebrita beach. Spend the afternoon swimming, snorkeling, beachcombing, sunbathing, or relaxing on the roof deck. Throughout the day, the bar on board the catamaran is open for all guests with Piña Coladas, Rum Punch, sodas, iced teas, and juices. A sumptuous buffet lunch is served on board, including fresh fruit, freshly baked bread, sliced meats, sliced cheeses, salads, chips, and cookies.

    The island was so beautiful! It a long commute that I really didn’t care for. It was an hour bus ride from my hotel to the location. Then, it was an hour boat ride to the private island. If you get motion sickness, I highly recommend buying motion sickness medicine and sit outside the boat for the ride. Once you get to the island, you forget about everything. The staff was friendly and very helpful if you are not a swimmer. It was open bar which I loved! And the snack they gave was pretty good. 10/10 recommendation.

If this is your first time jet skiing, DO IT! If you’ve already been jet skiing before, DO IT! They made it so worth while for my husband, who has never ridden a jet ski and for myself who has! Kevin and the rest of the group were so knowledgeable to make sure you understand the safety requirements as well as make you FEEL FREE FOR FUN! They were also so chill and just happy to be there! When we got going there were almost like these little obstacles that when you got through them felt so much more determined and ready to keep go full speed and fly through the water! Kevin took some great pictures of us and had us switch seats a couple times so we both got to drive and hold on. Let me say either seat was so much fun and excitingly scary in a great way!! The water was choppy a bit that day which made it even better!! Literal flying in the ocean! :D We definitely suggest taking a private tour if possible to give you that one on one time! So much more time to go faster longer! THANK YALL!

If it’s your first time in PR, or you’re just looking for things to do I 100% suggest doing the Bio Bay Tour! Be warned, it is an all day event, so plan ahead with extra clothes, a towel, etc. The tour is such an amazing experience from start to finish. Educational, entertaining, and also relaxing. There’s no way to describe the breathtaking view that is the Bio Bay, it’s certainly something you have to see for yourself, but I can tell you it’s spectacular and worth every penny. Our guide was hilarious and fun spirited which made the whole day even better. 10/10. Do yourself a favor and book a tour!

It was so much fun! We weren’t able to go to Flamenco but we still made it to the island and were swimming in The same waters. The staff was super friendly and the drinks were flowing! Be sure to bring some cash to tip&I might sure they take PayPal if not !!!! They deserve it.

This tour was so much fun! I loved that it was a small group, and our guide was really helpful and personable. Definitely recommend bringing two bathing suits if you can swing it, as there are plenty of opportunities to change. Loved it!

All I have to say this experience was off the hook
