This tour began just a short walking distance from our rented condo, but we almost didn't take advantage of it. The guard told us we had to phone for a reservation, so that is what we did and were able to get on a 2 p.m. English speaking tour. Despite her decent English, the guide was difficult to understand much... More

This review is not about the park as a whole but just for the snorkel site on the east side of Seven Seas beach. It is not worth the trek. The beach is great - close to 25 minute walk from parking lot - and good for swimming but not snorkel. All weeds and virtually no marine life.

What a GREAT park. It is particularly nice to see the bioluminescent bay/lagoon during the day up close and personal from the boardwalk through the mangroves and then again from above at the lighthouse to really appreciate how big the lagoon really is. The guide was very knowledgeable and encouraged questions. He also spoke English perfectly. Be sure to make... More

This is a really great tour and one of the bargains of PR. Tour took almost 3 hours for about $9 each. We went to the lagoon, the ocean beach and the lighthouse. Noel was very good guide and we learned a lot. This is a good thing to do before a night time bio bay trip as the luminescent... More

We took the educational tour which went up to the lighthouse. Carlos was our guide he was very informative and knowledgeable about the area and the surroundings. We completed enjoyed this excursion and would return, if you are in Fajardo check this out, you need to make reservations in advance.

This tour was fabulous. Our guide, Carlos, was friendly, knowledgable, and fun. We learned about ecology, history, biology, and archeology all in the most beautiful setting imaginable. Don't miss this tour- be sure to book it WAY ahead of time. It is worth it.

We loved the tour, our family learned so much about the areas and the different plants, but the views from the light house are amazing.

We went to Puerto Rico to see the Bioluminescent bay. However, we could not do the kayak tour this time. All the boat tours were fully booked (or they do not reply emails/calls). We found this walking tour, which turned out to be wonderful. The guide was great. It turned out to be more than the bioluminescent bay, which, of... More

Very educational and great learning opportunity about the fauna of this part of Puerto Rico. It's graet for kids and families, as well as anyone else interested in learning about ecosystems. Be sure to call ahead and make reservations, as the tours are scheduled for specific times and fill up at peak times.
