If you are unsure, hesitant, afraid, inexperienced - put it all aside and book your private tour with Laura! She was FANTASTIC from beginning to end! We received detailed directions on how to obtain our ferry tickets and get to Culebra, she maintained contact via text the day of our tour, and she picked us up right off the ferry. I was beyond nervous to swim in the ocean, I’d never been snorkeling and I’m not a strong swimmer. But Laura talked me through the entire process and she (literally) held my hand until I felt comfortable and ready to be on my own in the water. She allowed us to go at our own pace and made certain that we felt safe before we moved further into the water. Laura was born and raised in PR, so she knew all of the sweet spots and exactly where to go to see the most sea life. We saw tons of turtles, the biggest sting ray I’ve ever seen, beautiful vibrant fish, coral reefs and even held a sea urchin! She shared little facts along the way about the different plants and animals we saw and she snapped so many pictures of us in and under the water. We were never rushed or hurried along and she asked throughout the entire tour if we were comfortable with continuing further. After the tour, Laura personally prepared sandwiches and snacks for us to have and talked with us as if we were friends of the family until we were ready to pack up. She dropped us off at Flamenco beach for about 4 hours, and returned to pick us up in time to catch the ferry back to Cieba. After being so hesitant and afraid of going through with the tour, I couldn’t be happier that I did! Laura was absolutely amazing and I will 100% reach out to her again when we return to the island.

You must book with Laura and Damien, they are truly amazing from the beginning of booking to the departure. I cannot say enough good things about our experience snorkeling with the sea turtles and exploring one of the world's best beaches, Flamenco beach. Damien was so quick to respond to my booking questions and Laura, his amazing wife, was incredible during our snorkeling time in the water. We saw so many turtles, cool fish, an octopus, stingray and so much more. I even got to hold a sea urchin! They take photos during your entire snorkeling trip, so don't even bother with our own camera you will want to enjoy the time in the water and not stress about getting your own photos. After we were done snorkeling Laura packed us traditional Puerto Rican sandwiches, chips and drinks. She drove us to Flamenco and picked us up in time for our ferry. It was incredible. My Fiance and I felt like we stepped into a postcard and kept saying "Is this real life?" I could make this review a lot longer, but I will try and make it short and sweet. Book with CIA - It is way more intimate and you will get way better service than those other companies!! Thank you both so much, we will never forget it and cannot wait to come back!! Chaia and Bobby

Since my teenage daughter and I came to Culebra to relax for a few days, we were unsure about whether we wanted to spend any time doing tours... we are so glad that we chose to do so, and that we chose Culebra Island Adventures! While we were disappointed to hear that they weren't offering kayak tours anymore, the Turtles & More tour did not disappoint! It was the perfect way to get acquainted with the island and its diverse array of sea life. We saw many turtles, manta rays, beautiful fish, sea urchins, lobsters, barracuda, and even an octopus. Our guide, Laura, spent time telling us about the history of the preserve and the animals that we were seeing. She also took the most amazing photos to document our adventure! I am so glad that we chose to do this tour - it was the highlight of our trip to Puerto Rico, and my daughter and I can look back at the photos and treasure the memories we made together. If you are planning a trip to Culebra, don't miss the opportunity to kick off your trip with Culebra Island Adventures!

We were traveling across Puerto Rico for two weeks and chose Culebra as our last 3-days stay before going back. A friend of hours recommended Lemuel to us, and we signed up his tour. Since we had more time, Lemuel suggested us to take a double tour: swimming with turtles, and coral reef snorkeling. We agreed since it was a private individual tour at the same price as a regular packed group tour (which I personally don't like). Lemuel showed a great attitude, passion and professionalism at the same time. I work in an entertainment industry myself and know how important is this to keep passion and share it with the clients. Lemuel is def a great person, great professional, and dedicated so his passion. So, the tour was something I would never think about. We saw not just turtles, but manta rays, big and small fishes, sea stars, seashell crabs, jellyfish. The coral reef experience was something magical, I barely spoke as I was so deep (no pun intended, I was floating on the surface) in the process. Lemuel would show us around, explain how animals live and react, give us insights and attracted our attention to small thing we would never see on ourselves. I recorded our adventures on a waterproof smartphone case at it looks great, much better than I expected (I'm a professional photographer myself). My advice is not booking both sessions back to back and to have a small breakfast break in between to get some warmth and process what you just saw.

This was our favorite snorkeling trip! Laura and Damien were great communicators - easy to set up the tour and flexible with scheduling. We saw SO much underwater life and Laura took great pics of it all! Don't miss this trip! It would be worth planning all other adventure scheduling around this availability. The time at Flamengo Beach was perfect. Absolutely beautiful beach. Bring beer as all places are closed around the beach. Laura's lunch was yummy!! A perfect day!
