      Wonderful family adventure!
      Fantastic trip! Worth the time and investment. My kids had never snorkeled, but the staff was great at showing everyone what to do. Loved the boat ride and snorkeling around Vieques. We saw sea turtles and nerf sharks! The snacks and drinks were a nice touch. Considered trying to ferry over to Culbera or Viques, and make our own adventure, but I couldn't replicate what Pure Adventure is doing.

      Great family trip! We loved it!
      Luis and Freddy showed us a great time! My grumpy teenagers had no complaints and one even said it was his favorite thing he has ever done. We saw a manatee at the pier, sea turtles, an octopus, lots of tropical fish and a stingray! Freddy was very patient with the kids and made sure the less confident swimmers on our tour felt safe with flotation devices and comfortable with their snorkels. My family are all strong swimmers and we got to explore to our hearts content. We also enjoyed looking for coral and coconuts on the beach on Vieques. The trip was a perfect length. Would definitely do again!

      Fun trip. Just enough time. We saw turtles and sting rays. Only thing better would have been a Katamaran instead of the boat. Overall a great time.

      Great for kids learning to snorkel
      Tour was well organized and great for anyone learning to snorkel. First stop was a sandy beach where you could practice with your snorkel and explore the beach. We then went to a deeper snorkeling spot and saw sea turtles, sting rays, conch and a lot of fish. By the time we went to the second spot, my kids were very comfortable snorkeling and had a great time. The guides also joined us on the second snorkel to lead us and point out various sea creatures. This was awesome as I have been on many snorkeling trips where the passengers are sent alone into the water with limited guidance. We saw a lot more with the guided snorkeling tour. Highly recommend for families.

      Snorkeling Adventure
      My family and I had a fantastic day of snorkeling with Pure Adventure. We had to modify our initial trip due to weather patterns and sea currents for boat safety, and Pure Adventures was very up front and timely on letting us know about this. They modified the trip to a shorter one along with a rebate for the shorter excursion, a testament to their business ethics and purpose to their customers. Even with the shorter trip, my family and I still had a glorious time. We had a very kind and knowledgeable captain, Juan, and a stellar crew of 2 who were very patient with the tour patrons including our five year old. The boat ride out to Vieques was smooth and relaxing, the ocean breeze and water from the boat comforting in the warm weather. Our beach area for exploring was serene along the crystalline waters of the Caribbean, and the snorkeling spot was second to none. We were able to experience sea turtles, a giant manta ray, and a plethora of fish/crabs that we have never been able to witness in our previous snorkeling adventures. This was a spectacular excursion while visiting Puerto Rico and will be talked about for years to come in my family.

      Very happy with this choice!
      We went out on a Monday, and the boat was not crowded at all. The captain and Victor were friendly, knowledgeable and professional. There was music, food and beverages (both alcohol and non) but there was no party hype, no constant reminders to tip, just a really relaxing, safe and fun day on the water for the families and couples on board.

      You should book this
      We had an amazing time on our snorkel trip. The staff was amazing and super helpful, making sure to point out different things in the water to help make sure everyone had an amazing experience. We saw a lot of turtles, a stingray, and a wide array of tropical fish.I got a ton of good memorable footage on my gopro. It didn't hurt that they had an open bar on the way back. I look forward to booking this again next year

      Great experience with a professional crew
      My daughter and 3 friends came to visit us at Puerto Rico during their spring break. The 3 friends never visited PR and had a great stay, which included the snorkeling tour with Pure Adventure. They really enjoyed how well organized is the tour, first practice for beginners and then go and see the marine life. One of the girls did not swim well and that was no problem since the crew provided a floating device. They saw turtles and even an octopus. The crew includes a marine biologist very knowleageble who explained what they were seeing. Totally recommend to everyone, including beginners and non-swimmers.

The equipment is excellent and the crew is focused on sanitary measures. We saw so many green sea turtles, one even swam right up to my mask! We also saw sting ray, barracuda, puffer fish and so many varieties of beautiful fish. My family had the best time, thank you for the wonderful memories Luiz, Victor, Freddie & Pure Adventures!

      Awesome trip to Culebra
      The captain, Nelson, and his crew were awesome, so friendy and knowledgeable. The tour included two stops--a private beach and an awesome underwater wall which had amazing snorkeling. Food was better than expected. The trip to Culebra was over an hour and very bumpy so being Dramamine if you're prone to seasickness.

      I want to go back!
      We thoroughly enjoyed the half day snorkeling trip to Vieques. Our guides Victor and Freddy and Captain Luis were knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and safety conscious. The water was crystal clear and saw rays, sea turtles, an octopus, and much more. Snacks and drinks provided during the tour were plentiful. This tour was a top highlight of our trip to PR. I would definitely return , only for a full day next time!

      A must do in Puerto Rico
      This kayaking tour was outstanding! Natalia, Javier, Enrique, Amaury and Catalina went out of their way to make sure everyone had an amazing time!! From the time of arrival to our departure everything was well organized. Safety was exercised through out the entire so bringing children over the age of 6 is not a problem! I highly recommend the 6 pm tour-the sunset in the big lagoon was the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen! You must witness this bioluminescence langoon. Highly recommended!!

      Incredible Day with Juan from Pure Adventure
      Our family of 4 had a great time on our Private Snorkel and Cruise Experience. Everyone at Pure Adventure is very professional and friendly. The day before our vacation, the company that I had book a trip to Vieques with, called to let me know they had to cancel the trip. They said they didn't have enough people and they only went to Vieques once the previous week. They were nice and I appreciated them calling me to cancel, and they suggested Pure Adventure. Great recommendation! On very short notice, I called and spoke with Yolanda who helped me decide which trip would be best for my family. I booked it immediately and Yolanda was right! Thank you! Juan was our Captain and he was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and friendly, and we felt very safe with Juan. Thank you to everyone at Pure Adventure for creating memories that my family will talk about for years to come. Sincerely, Gary

    My name is Musa and my wife Yasmeen and I went to the Kayak trip with Javier and Enrique. It was the most magical night of our six day vacation. And we went to the Virgin Islands crossed with the ferry to St. John’s but the bioluminescent tour was the highlight! The tour guides are so kind and helpful and will make you feel confident they are informative and welcoming and not to mention funny! You will have an experience you won’t forget!

    Amazing!!! It was an amazing experience to learn about bioluminescence and to do kayak by night. It is one of the 5 places in the world where you can see and feel it. It was unforgettable.

    Natalia, Javier,Enrique, Yadrul, and Catalina , thank you!!!!
    You were all so good at making this trip fun and making sure everyone felt safe.
    This was a true adventure for my 7 year old niece, as well as, me, her 62 year old aunt!
    We took the 8 pm tour so it was a dark paddle through the mangroves which was super cool even if we couldn't see the groves. At first i was kinda bummed we wouldn'tbe able to see the groves and was concerned my niece would be scared, but I was so glad we took the later tour. The darkness added a thrill for both of us. It wasn't overcrowded and was so much fun. The guides kept a good eye on us checking up with us along the way.
    Pure Adventure was good with communicating with us keeping us updated before the trip. They were very organized.
    Not a hard paddle.
    Again, thank you to all the guides I mentioned above for giving us an experience that will last a lifetime!!

    As a first time kayaker, and with my 11 year old daughter also being a first timer, this may have been a bit over zealous for us!! We did the 8pm tour, and it was very dark going out to the bay. We luckily had Javier, the amazing guide, that took us under his wing to make sure we had a great experience even with our lack of experience. He pointed out all of the beauty around us to help calm my very nervous daughter. We loved the bio experience & were really able to see the glow. All of the guides were very knowledgeable and helpful.

    The sunset tour is always the most recommended and that is the one we booked. The reviews don't really do it justice, I recommend come and see it with your own eyes. The view of the sunset is breathtaking and the bioluminescence out of this world. Honestly I would still do this tour just for the sunset also.

    The tour guides are funny, informative and professional. They make the tour fun and extra enjoyable. Natalia is one of the tour guides(there were others, i just can't remember the names) she was such a sweetheart. Thank you Pure Adventure Staff for an amazing and unforgettable experience.

    This was great fun! We kayaked in the dark, at 8pm, through mangroves out into the bay. That in itself was fun. In the bay, we could see the bioluminescence just a bit, at first, but then our guides covered us with a tarp and everything in the water came alive. The guides were terrific and fun and taught us things. Even pointed out constellations in the sky. Highly recommend.
