Take command of your own mini-speedboat for a 3.5-hour adventure snorkeling and navigating among the beautiful tropical islands just off Puerto Rico’s east coast. Follow the lead of your certified guide as you pilot your own vessel with a convoy of other speedboats through the turquoise-blue waters of the Caribbean, stopping at the deserted island Icacos Cay and (if water conditions allow) the gorgeous Isla de Palominitos. During the day you’ll enjoy snorkeling amidst schools of colorful fish and relax on stunning white-sand beaches. Your speedboat adventure also includes a guide, personal cooler with ice, snacks and refreshments, plus snorkel and safety gear.
Snorkeling was great, screw those mini boats though

I'm very split on this review, so I'm doing 3 stars. Before the tour began, the admin contacted us to say that they may cancel the tour due to high winds, which means the water is dangerous and the snorkeling will be murky. I very very much appreciated this communication. We decided to do the tour. The tour was not cancelled. Our two guides were very nice. The water though, was chopping and honestly the boat ride was literally painful because of being slammed onto the waves. After the drive to the reef, I was in tears, but I choose not to say anything because I didn't want to ruin the time of the other people, who seem to have no issues with the ride. Now, we did the snorkeling which was awesome as you had a lot of time there and was guided if you wanted. We then went to a nice beach, which was relaxing and pleasant. Then we had to take those terrible boats back, but this time I was a little more prepared.
We thank you for joining us on the Mini Boat adventure to Icacos Island. I'm sorry to hear that the navigation was too choppy and bumpy for you. The Mini Boat is generally a bumpy ride and when the weather is not ideal it can be even bumpier. I'm glad to know that you appreciated our heads up call regarding the weather conditions for that particular day. However, I wish you would have said something to the tour guides regarding how you felt during the navigation. Our tour guides will be with you the entire time to assist you in way they can. In this case they could have given you suggestion on how to lessen the impact created by the waves during navigation.
On the other hand I'm so glad you enjoyed the snorkeling activity and the time spend on the beautiful beach of Icacos. We definitely hope you come back and join us on a day the weather is calmer (so to speak).
Your experience is very important for us. If you have any other concerns feel free to call us at 787.245.4545.
This was so much fun!! Such freedom and the water is beautiful. It’s kid and family friendly. Wonderful experience and I absolutely love and appreciate the photo link that we received. I would highly recommend this tour!
Saludos Phala Heard,
Thank you so much for joining the excursion! Happy to read that everything went well and that you enjoyed the freedom of cruising in the caribbean sea waters.
Hope we get to see you again on your next visit to our beautiful island! Take care 🤗
What an amazing time we had on this Snorkel Safari!!! From the very beginning, these guys took care of us! It was our first time snorkeling....they made everything very easy! Loved how they explained and taught us all about the reefs, the different formations, animal life, etc....and to top everything off...we couldn't get an UBER ride back to our resort at 5pm on a Friday evening....so one of our guides on the trip took us to our resort!!!! Now that is SERVICE!!! We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this Snorkel Safari. The guys were so professional, and went above and beyond expectations all around!
Thank you so much for sharing your lovely experience! We feel honor to have you experience Icacos with us while in Puerto Rico :-) Our tour guides are definitely the best!
Thank you for taking of your time. We hope to see you again soon!
Beautiful snorkeling and swimming, and excellent guides

We had a wonderful time on our snorkeling tour. Our group was about 15 people in total. We started with a clear set of instructions about how to handle the mini boats, and what our itinerary would be. That was followed by a fun ride out to Icacos, where we snorkeled near beautiful coral reefs, teeming with brightly colored fish. Next, we rode out to palominos island for a half hour of beach time on a white sand beach, and then rode back to the dock. The instructions on driving and snorkeling were perfectly clear - no previous experience is necessary. All told we had a great time, and would definitely consider booking this again if we ever go back to Puerto Rico.
Multiple unforgettable experiences in one day: driving speedboat, snorkelling above coral reefs and landing on an uninhabited cay like in the pirate movies. Plus, our guide was so friendly and informational. It's the best tour we had in Puerto Rico and absolutely worth the money.
So glad we took the chance with this company. Trip of a lifetime that my son and I wont soon forget. Our tour guide Alex was excellent. He talked about the history of the island and had many interesting facts to share. The snorkeling was great and we really enjoyed ourselves. I would highly recommend this company
