The crew members were awesome - they were so much fun! The drinks were delicious and the water was great. They spent the day making sure everyone on board was having a great time snorkeling and hanging out on the catamaran.

The best excursion we have been on! Our family of 5 had a blast! The crew was very organized and friendly and they were upbeat and serving us drinks the whole time. The snorkeling was fun however there were to many boats in one area so too many snorkelers in the water at the same time so it seemed a little crowded. The lunch was very good and the boat was in great condition! Would highly recommend!

This trip was beautiful! Even with a little rain, they let us get the full experience. The crew was everything, I really appreciated their enthusiasm and hospitality.

Great trip from start to finish. Initially I wanted to avoid an excursion that lasted this long but it was definitely worth it. The crew was great, welcoming, and helpful. The beach was beautiful and lunch was well-timed and enjoyable. I would definitely do this again if I return to Puerto Rico

My wife and I enjoyed this tour on our honeymoon. We experienced this cruise onboard the Barefoot IV. This was a highlight of our honeymoon. And oddly enough it was not the snorkeling that was the most memorable. Although we did see hundreds of reef fish, a few sea turtles, some dolphins, jerky fish, and a puffer fish... It was the drinks endless and generous, the food hand-prepped and tasty, the crew social and very friendly, and the amazing spots where the boat anchored clear waters, white sand. The actual ride out to the spots is fun too. They allow you to ride on the front of the boat my wife's favorite part. And they also let you jump off the side of the boat at the second spot where we anchored. I recommend this and would definitely call this a must do if traveling to Puerto Rico. Just don't forget your sunscreen. You will need it. Two thumbs up.

The crew was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The drinks were free flowing and the food was amazing and timed out prefectly. Freddie was very clear and made it easy to learn to snorkel. The reefs and fish are simply beautiful. Definitely a must see!

The snorkeling trip to Cayo Icacos was great from start to finish. We were picked up at a hotel in San Juan and driven to the catamaran about an hour drive away, and our van driver was very personable. The snorkeling trip itself was a lot of fun: The entire crew was professional and dedicated to making sure all of us had a great time and we saw an array of fish and coral at the two snorkeling spots. Overall, highly recommended!

-Good food and unlimited alcoholic beverages for those who want that.
-Bus driver kindly pulled over so I could go to the bathroom because I drank a bottle of water before our 1-hour drive to the boat don't recommend drinking too much water before the drive
-Great Puerta Rican music on the bus and on the boat
-Friendly staff and great instruction on snorkeling at our first spot
-Clean bathroom on boat
-AMAZING clear waters and great swimming spots

Con for myself:
-I got majorly sunburned due to not applying enough sunscreen and snorkeling for 2hours. Wear your sunscreen!
