Zip lining is great, hiking in the rain forest is awesome and touring the forts in old San Juan is interesting, but Monkey Island tops them all. Our family had a fantastic time. Barefoot Travelers was booked, so they said we should call Captain Paco. He was a great tour guide and made a fantastic trip that much more enjoyable.... More

My family of 4 (children 10 and 8) spent 4+ hours on the water with Keishya. We had an amazing time. The paddle over to the island was a bit tiring (not much help from an 8 year old daughter) but the 25 mins of effort were well worth it. Keishya told us on a scale of 1 to 10... More

We had a great time kayaking around Monkey Island with Bob. There are plenty of monkeys (and some pretty impressive iguanas) to see, and some good opportunities for snorkeling. Bob was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and helpful, and had no trouble accommodating an older but active member of our party. Definitely worth doing!

Last week we went to Puerto Rico and one of our acitivities we planned to do was the kayak trip to monkey island. It was awesome! Keishya did a great job and she explained everything very well. They keep the groups very small 2 to 6 people. We had a private tour with the 4 of us. Keishya will ask... More

We are so glad we booked this trip. It is highly recommended and something you will not regret! We started off the morning kayaking to the actual monkey island, observed the monkeys, then went snorkeling, kayaked around the island again, observed other wildlife and sailed back to shore. The entire experience was 3.5 - 4 hrs. We learned some interesting... More

My wife and I had a wonderful day with Keiysha and Bob. They kept the kayaking group very small. This is wonderful for asking lots of questions.we spent some time kayaking, a lot of time snorkeling, at two different locations, and of course, watching all of the monkeys. There are over 1000 monkeys on the island, and I think we... More

Thanks to Keishya and Bob. They did a great job of organizing our kayaking trip to Monkey Island. Bob was very knowledgeable about the history and the activities on the island. He took us to a good snorkeling spot and told us we could stay there as long as we wanted. We also did a complete tour of the island.... More

Bob and Keishya are great tour guides for this half day adventure!! We got to see lots of monkeys, including all the new babies!! Also fun to snorkel around the ship wreck to see all sorts of great sea life. Keep your fingers crossed for beautiful weather! It is a gorgeous day when the water cooperates!!

Really nice adventure, we saw hundreds of monkeys and heard some interesting facts about the island from Keishya. It was our first time kayaking and I was a little worried, but the island is not far away from the shore (less than a mile as far as I remember). We did not try snorkeling because of the water conditions. I... More

We planned a large part of our trip around this tour & were canceled on at 10 PM before our 8 AM trip. I was informed it was due to weather concerns, though we replaced our trip with a Snorkeling trip nearby & the weather was excellent. I complained, and was informed that it was not weather related, but bacteria... More

We love what we do and want to take everyone out on our kayak tour for the best possible experience we can provide. Sometimes Mother Nature has other plans. We truly appreciate the frustration of this reviewer. Weather related issues, including torrential rains that flood nearby rivers, occur rarely but we simply cannot control when they do. When the beaches... More
