“The only way to snorkel in Puerto Rico!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

My wife and I went w/ Ingrid and Capt. Dan (no Forrest Gump jokes) on 5/5/2014 for an outstanding day of snorkeling and sailing out of Fajardo, PR.

Since the boat is limited to six passengers, we had the two "private" spots we visited to ourselves and did not bump into other people while in the water. We spent over two hours actually in the water snorkeling, which is far more than the shorter expeditions could offer. We saw tons on reef fish,two Hawksbill turtles, and a wide variety of corals and sponges on the reefs.

A great barbecue lunch of ribs, chicken and fixins' was included. Ingrid went to special lengths to accommodate gluten free requirements.

The combination of Dan's and Ingrid's (PhD Earth Science) experience and education provided us with a wealth of information on the area and environment.

While making the reservation Ingrid makes sure she has all the information needed to make your trip most enjoyable.

This trip was the highlight of our Puerto Rico holiday and would highly recommend it for anyone who wants a great intimate day of snorkeling while in PR.

“Great day of snorkeling!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

We had a fantastic day aboard the Tanto Amor with Captain Dan and Tracy! From directions to the marina, to lunch, to the "private" snorkeling spots, the 4 of us (including a 10 and 13 yr old) had a great day! I've done many different snorkeling trips at different locations and this one was one of the best. With only 7 of us on the boat, we did not have to worry about a ton of people crowding the water all at once or dealing with those who drank too much on a party boat (a concern when traveling with our kids.) Don't get me wrong...there was plenty of delicious food and drinks (both alcoholic and non alcoholic) but the trip was a much more laid back one with far fewer people. The snorkeling was great as well...rays, conch, lobster, baracuda, and many many other fish. If you're looking for less of a party atmosphere and more individualized attention, then this is the trip for you!

“Our perfect day in Puerto Rico!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

From the moment we booked, Ingrid was very helpful and answered our questions. I have to say, our day with Ingrid and Captain Dan was simply perfect! We went with our two younger (9 & 11) and our older (18 & 21) children. It was a beautiful day and I couldn't ask for better team. Ingrid and Dan took time to teach the kids about sailing, snorkeling and what to watch out for when we were snorkeling. Captain Dan pointed us in the best area to snorkel. We saw sea turtle and lots of colorful fish! It has been my dream to go out on a sail boat, and I was not disappointed!

Not only was the snorkeling amazing, we also got to go to a island with nobody there and walk the beach. The kids found conch shells on the island and bright back to the boat. Captain Dan showed the kids how to check to make sure they weren't alive, and then he jumped in to find a live one to show them. When he dropped the conch back, there was a group of squid by the boat and it made them ink. Kids thought that was really cool!

Let's not forget about the food. So delicious! Drinks, ribs, mango salsa, and chicken grilled all on the boat. Again, we were very happy!

What a great day for our family! Go if you are thinking about it, you will not be disappointed! Thank you Captain Dan and Ingrid for a wonderful day!

“What an amazing day!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

We had the most amazing day with Captain Dan and Boo-Boo on the Tanto Amor! We were a party of 7, ranging in age from 6 years old to 69 years old and everyone had a terrific time! I really think it was the highlight of our trip for all of us! My 6 year old was very nervous as she had only snorkeled in a pool, so she was a bit nervous about going into the ocean, but Captain Dan and Boo-Boo were very helpful in making her feel comfortable. They towed the zodiac with us so she could be taken to the beach area first and then she could snorkel in the shallow water until she felt comfortable. It didn't take long before she was off and running and then she was jumping of the side of the boat! They made a delicious lunch and also made special accomodations for the kids that aren't big fans of BBQ. We snorkeled in two different locations and we were the only people there - it was spectacular! Although we never met Ingrid in person, we had great email exchanges with her while we were planning our trip. All the kids were given a turn to drive the boat and they all thought that was the greatest thing ever!! No one wanted to leave. Long live Captain Dan and Boo-Boo!!
