This was a well executed adventure outing and the crew, including Donovan, Luis, Juan, Freddy and one other (sorry, forgot the name) ensured that everyone, young and old, experienced or not, had a great time and were able to participate in all the activities. The trip started on time from Ceiba and instructions and agenda was clearly presented by the crew. The captain expertly guided the boat through some rough waters due to it being a windy day. First we were taken to a beautiful calm beach and the boat was moored just feet away from the shore in very shallow waters. We were able to practice our snorkeling, diving, and even use one of the paddle boards they had available. After about an hour swimming and relaxing in this area, we were served a nice meal/snack, that included a delicious veggie wrap as an option. We then went to deeper waters where we were able to snorkel, observing sea turtles, sting rays, all types of beautiful tropical fish, and other small marine life. It was surreal being in beautiful, clear, deep Caribbean waters and the crew guided us and ensured that we were able to view the marine life. Drinks (including cold beer) and snacks were available after and they even let the kids dive off the upper level of the boat while it was moored. The deeper sea snorkeling is not for very young kids or those that are not fairly decent swimmers as it is a relatively intense activity. Please notify the crew beforehand if you have any concerns and they will outfit you with floatation devices and other safety measures. I strongly recommend Pure Adventure if you are looking into snorkeling.

My sons and I wanted to spend an afternoon snorkeling and our hotel offered us very expensive, full day trips. We went online and found Pure Adventure and booked this wonderful afternoon trip to Vieques and it was the perfect fit! We were relative beginners to snorkeling and one my sons (a proud 21 year old athlete) had recently had hip surgery, limiting his ability to use flippers. No problem! One of the guides immediately, and without any embarrassing fanfare, took him aside, tossed him a rubber safety ring to hold onto and without a second thought easily pulled him along so that he could do everything the rest of us did without having to work his lower body to remain bouyant, and he snorkled for hours alongside us without a hitch. We saw skates, giant sea turtles, huge schools of beautiful fish and fascinating underwater flora and coral. Before we got to that prime snorkeling spot, though, the guides thoughtfully brought us to a warm, shallow private beach to practice with our snorkles, splash around to our hearts content and even tossed a few paddle boards out for anyone who was interested to play around with yet another new skill. The crew, meanwhile, whipped up a satisfying, fresh and delicious lunch for us all to enjoy as we headed out to the big snorkle-fest that awaited. The crew were professional, safety conscious, committed to fun and showed us all a wonderful afternoon. Vieques is lovely and worth seeing, and only a half hour ride from the Ceiba (which is itself an easy drive from San Juan and the resorts of the North Shore of Puerto Rico). If you take this trip, enjoy watching the water as the boat cuts through the surf. Thousands of little fish (ballyhoo) jumping out of the boat's wake are such a treat to behold!

We did this tour today and had a blast. Captain Luis was a pro at safely navigating the large boat. Juan is a marine biologist who pointed out beautiful sea creatures and educated us on them. We saw green sea turtles, a hawkbill turtle, stingrays and so many different kinds of fish! Freddy was another assistant who was kind and energetic. And then there was Donovan - this young man is a hard worker with the best attitude ever. He did everything possible to ensure everyone on the boat was having a great time. He helped show people how to use the paddle board, he dove 15’ down to take close up pics of the sea animals we saw, and on the way back, if you had an empty hand or cup, he made sure to offer refreshments. All with a smile and zest for the day. This trip was worth every penny plus a great tip for this team of workers who showed their love for their island home. And I got to swim with sea turtles, so my cup runneth over!

So, there were some positives here for sure: the boat trip was professional, on-time and comfortable. The setting was simply amazing (Puerto Rico is beautiful just about anywhere). We did see some amazing wildlife (star fish, manta rays, sea turtles). The equipment was sanitized and of decent quality. The trip started fine: once at the island, the boat pulled up to the beach and let the group (about 25ish? people) explore the shallow areas near the beach to get acclimated to the snorkeling gear and experience. This was relaxing and you could go at your own pace. The problem really came when the boat moved to the deeper areas and lead the "group snorkeling tour." They put all 25 people in the group in the water and all were told to follow the single guide in a free-swim where he would point out certain wildlife. Of course, the group was of vastly different swimming abilities, so some were clustered together around the guide (where there was a great deal of getting kicked in the head with flipper, hit with an arm, and being generally uncomfortably crowded in the water. Some swimmers struggled and lagged behind: one was far enough back to cause significant concern and ended up having to hold onto the guide's float. The guides did not notice her and kept moving - she, luckily, caught up (out of breath and dangerously exhausted). Once in the water, it was a bit chaotic and there was lots of splashing and flailing, even among good swimmers. Trying to keep pace with the guide, find a spot in the crowd treading water around him to hear what he was saying, see what objects he was pointing out, was a struggle and a significant distraction to the snorkeling we paid so much to experience. I understand that there are logistic issue in this sort of experience, but it was unpleasant being in a moving heap of swimmers, none of whom had the full experience of snorkeling. Once the guided tour part was done, everyone got on the boat and stood around for at least 30 to 40 minutes while they let people jump off the top of the boat. We were not allowed to explore the area around the boat snorkeling (the gear was collected after the guided tour). That being said, Donovan was an amazing crew member who demonstrated passion and knowledge for the sea and the animals we were able to see. He help make the experience better all around. Overall, very disappointed with the tour itself.

This trip was the best ever, the crew Luis, Donovan & Juan ( there was another crew member but I did not catch his name) were exceptionally attentive, polite & personable. The trip there was easy and fast, the beach was spectacular and the snorkeling was good. The crew was in the water the entire time we were snorkeling, making everyone feel safe and comfortable. I have taken other tours before and there was something this trip did not have and other tour operators seem to cherish. Loud blaring music, it was wonderful to actually be able to hear the sounds of the sea and when they had music it was played at a comfortable level. Different strokes for different folks but if I want to listen to blaring music until my head hurts I will go to a pub or club not to a serene beach. Thanks so much for the wonderful time.

My adult daughter and I had a great time on this excursion. The crew was highly professional, with a clear emphasis on safety, including consistent mask wearing. They also provided good service with assisting guests and proving snacks and beverages. The boat was in excellent shape. The crew were good assessing the skill level of the snorkelers aboard and helping those who needed assistance. The crew were great at pointing out sea life. One the crew was a marine biologist, and when we expressed interest in learning more about the fish we were seeing he took extra time to help us find some more rare and interesting critters. The water was not super clear, and there was not a great deal of coral. This being said, we saw a wide variety of sealife including several turtles, stingrays, lobster, eels, lizardfish, and multiple reef fish species. Per my daughter - "Epic."

The trip was a lot of fun. We went out on a skiff type boat and saw many different types of fish, sea turtles and sting ray. The captain and crew were helpful and friendly. The only cons were the bathrooms weren’t working at the meeting spot (Pure Adventure building) and when you travel almost 1.5 hours you want a bathroom. Then we had to travel to the dock a few minutes and our transportation had left already. A little odd to have to drive from there. Overall a great experience.

This company has it down to a science. First we went to a secluded beach on Vieques to test equipment, try paddleboard, swim etc.. The best honestly of the whole trip was the rock reef off shore to free snorkel at. In my opinion this was better than the "snorkel spot" we actually went to. This was probably the best snorkel at the rocks in the 5 snorkel trips we did in PR. During the snorkel part we saw about 8 turtles, rays, and other fish. The guides were concerned about safety and pointed out marine life.

The tour personnel were friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. They played music on the way out to set the mood, then took us to a shallow area to allow us to practice with the snorkel gear. Then we went to deeper waters and the personnel jumped into the water with us to point out where marine life was and to make sure we all got to see. Wonderful, positive experience! Highly recommend!!
