We had a great snorkeling trip with Capt. Matt and first mate Frank who took us out to Vieques Island from the Palmas marina. We lucked out with a gorgeous, sunny winter afternoon. The hospitality was warm and low key - such a pleasure to be on a mellow and relaxing boat with experts on the area. Gracias, Capt. Matt... More

Matt almost always answered his phone. He prefers phone calls vs email. We paid for a private snorkeling trip to Green Beach on Vieques Island. The Sea was a bit rough (4 - 6 foot waves). We had a 9 and 12 year old with us and he gave us the option to cancel without monetary penalty. We went. The... More

Captain Matt and First Mate Frank are great guys and run a professional charter. We went to Green Beach Vieques. Sea turtles and rays and too many fish to mention. I highly recommend!!!

Several of the family on this trip had never been snorkeling. We had such a good time, one of my nieces was in tears at the end because she was so HAPPY. She loves the water and was able to swim with a sea turtle. We saw several creatures and it was fantastic. Capt. Matt and his mate Frank were... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Puerto Rico. Capt. Matt & Frank were fantastic. The boat, Matt's Cat, is super comfortable. We went to Vieques for a half day of snorkeling; they put us right on 3 very interesting reefs. We saw turtles, rays, octupus, TONS of fish. Matt was great - we were able to sun and... More

I have been fishing with guides for a long time i must say Capt Matt has been one of my best experiences. We caught a 250 lb marlin Capt Matt and his crew made sure we all where safe when they brought the beast on board. They also did a great job keeping the fish alive and returning it back... More

Best snorkeling trip! This was not your usual party boat trip and that is why we really enjoyed the day. Captain Matt and his snorkeling guide Frank were very friendly and accommodating. Great for the entire family. The day included snorkeling gear, refreshments (beer/wine) and snacks. I highly recommend checking out Maragata Charter Trips.

Our group of 13 had such s great time we rebooked for 2 days later! Capt Matt and First Mate Frank are super to be with, provide great accommodations. Snorkeling was excellent, equipment and boat are great and always very safe. Recommend to anyone of all ages!! Only regret is we didn't go fishing with them!

Matt and First Mate Francisco did a great job! We caught 4 barracuda, had one of the best snorkeling experiences ever, and had a great time heading out to Vieques and back. Highly recommend this charter. Matt and Francisco both insured we had a great time. Snorkeling adventure included seeing sea urchins, a myriad of tropical fish, conch, sponges, several... More
