A must Go
Mar 2021 • Family
Isla Caja de Muertos in Ponce is a beautiful beach to enjoy. There is a short ride to the Island, but the sand and the water is the best in the south side of the Island. Very safe to swim or snorkeling. It could get a little crowded during holidays.

OUTSTANDING
Feb 2020 • Couples
wow! so glad we booked this catamaran. outstanding. the crew members were very nice and professional and the service they provided was outstanding. beer, soda and water included with a little lunch buffet was great and the snorkeling with sea turtles was amazing. I can't swim but they set me up with a flotation belt and snorkel mask and off I went. even got to see a nurse shark. we didnt get to explore the island because of the earthquakes but that didn't take away from the fun at all. we cant wait to not only do this again but check out their other tours too.

an absolutely perfect day. thank you!

Absolutely do this
Dec 2019 • Friends
The crew and experience on the island were fantastic. Great way to get out to an island and spend a day on the beach, hiking, snorkeling and relaxing. They provide lunch, snacks, soda and beer as part of the package and there are are cocktails available to buy. They provide equipment for snorkeling and floatation devices as well as beach chairs for a small fee. Worth every penny.

Coffin Island Day Trip
Dec 2019 • Family
Booked through Island Venture. Be sure to read your information packet before arrival. Departure is from the Ponce Boardwalk. The catamaran trip to the island takes about 25 minutes. I am a notorious seasick traveler and took Dramamine about 1 hour before departure. NO PROBLEMS! No shoes allowed while on board. The boat docks close to shore but still 5-6 ft deep. If you don’t have a waterproof bag your gear (including towels, shoes, phone, sunglasses, etc will get soaked, not wet, soaked! BE PREPARED!!! 2 chairs and umbrella cost me $27 for the day, and the crew sets it up for you. Lunch is served from 12-1 sharp! Cold cuts, cheese, chips and macaroni salad. The bread alone was worth the trip. Getting from the boat to shore was not a chore except for the rocks. Wear swim shoes if you have them. Waves are strong at times. But no one was overwhelmed. The hike to the lighthouse takes 25-30 min each way. It’s a hike! You will need supportive shoes. Great view. Lots of information about the island. The waters were clear and I did see some fish while snorkeling. We were the only boat at the island so there was no overcrowding at the beach. Captain Jose and the crew were outstanding. Beer and soft drinks were provided free of charge. Liquor drinks were cash bar. Fruit and cookies were served shortly before departure. We drove from Condado and it took about 90 minutes each way on a very good 4 lane highway with tolls. The drive was gorgeous through the mountains. And was a great part of the full day. We travel to Puerto Rico often and have taken many excursions. Put this on your bucket list especially if you are in the Ponce area.

Once a Pirate Island!!
Jul 2019
Excellent experience if you are in the southern part of the island of PR., Need one full day because you need to travel by boat. The white beautiful sand beach can walk the island maybe you might find a "Ratonejo". or get into a small cave or go to the Lighthouse. Must bring a cooler.

Great Beach... Needs Some TLC
Sep 2019
The island has been lefty unrepaired since Hurricane Maria and it is in need of some Tender Loving Care. While the shell of the facilities remain most are unusable and appear to be abandoned. A good spot for private yachts` to tie up but the Pier and other facilities require repair. Clear waters and nice beach but no facilities for bathrooms, food or other. Chartered a party boat for a group and had a good time but the island/cay resource needs someone’s time and attention.

Great Escape!
Aug 2019
We took the Island Adventure boat and it was fun. The food and drinks were cool, we had a cooler at the beach to enjoy soft drinks and Medalla beer. The beach was crystal clear, no seaweed. The boat parked close to the beach, so we didn't have any problems getting across. The staff helped us with our bags, etc. In the island, we had a chance to explore the old abandoned lighthouse, walk around, explore the cactus, etc. This trip is highly recommended.

Beautiful beach to share with the jellyfishes
Jun 2019 • Family
Pros: Boat was excellent with easy access stair and platform to the water. Clean bathrooms on board. Excellent service. Crew really make everything to make everyone enjoy the trip. Food average. Inflatables on water saved the day for the kids. Beautiful clear water.

Cons: For me, the jellyfishes ruined the day. Staff removed 10+ jellyfishes from the water but there were too many. Many guests got sting, including myself. Don’t know if it’s a seasonal thing. Day would have been perfect without the jellyfishes nuisance. Just be warned in case you are allergic or don’t like to suffer sharp pain continuously for 20 mins and to be out of the water the whole afternoon because of being afraid of getting stung again.

One of the Best Beaches in the world
Apr 2019
If you are in the Ponce area, this is a must see. Take the catamaran (Island Venture) on a day trip. It leaves out of La Guancha. Once there take the hike up to the old lighthouse. Pretty easy hike with a reward of a great view. There are two beaches. You are only allowed on the calm side. It is impossible to describe how beautiful the beach and the clear aqua blue water.
