Initially, we tried to book with another charter boat company but they were not able to accommodate our travel dates. They recommended Serenity Sea Tours and we could not have been happier with our experience. It was by far the highlight of our trip to Puerto Rico.

Originally, I wanted to travel to Culebra but after speaking with Serenity Sea Tours on the phone they recommended the ½ day tour to Fajardo Keys (Icacos, Lobos, Palomino, Palominito) for our family of five (2 adults and 3 children - ages 10, 8, and 5). This recommendation was based on potential choppy waves, long boat rides to/from Culebra, and ages of our children. The ½ day turned out to be perfect - in fact I regret not booking the VIP Package and the drone add-on!

When we arrived in Icacos, we basically had the island to ourselves! After a bit of snorkeling and exploring the beach, we moved to another snorkel spot in deeper waters with a great variety of sea life/reefs. From there, we went to visit a shipwreck (highlight for the kids) where we saw a huge lobster. Our third stop was to Palomino where we saw sea turtles! Finally, we were able to see the sandbar at Palominito.

Our children enjoyed jumping off the boat, taking videos with the waterproof action camera (some of the best photos we have from our trip!), eating ALL of the snacks (chips/dip, turkey/cheese/crackers, fruit platter, unlimited juices/soda), playing with Caesar in the water, snorkeling, swimming, and even driving the boat!

From music, to snorkeling equipment, to food, and more, Caesar was beyond accommodating and was genuinely interested in ensuring we had the best experience. He is extremely knowledgeable about the islands, is a safe, competent boat captain, and takes pride in his work.

Pro Tip: Bring towels, sunscreen (make sure to reapply throughout the day!), and a small bag for your own personal items. You can keep them dry and secure in the cabin of the boat.

The Serenity Sea Tours VIP 1/2 day was more than amazing! The BBQ steak and chicken lunch with snacks, and beverages was plentiful, super tasty and a great value. The beaches/islands and sea life shared were spectacular. The boat was extremely stable and easy accessibility for our group of 4 (even the 2 who are 70+yrs).

But the best part was the Captain! Cesar is a great host and demonstrated exemplary knowledge and experience on the waters. He anticipated our needs, catered to our particular interests, and is a genuinely nice guy. Cesar's special personal touch made his first class food service next level. We felt like we made a new friend!

We had the most wonderful boat tour and snorkeling trip with Captain Cesar! We are 2 couples who have visited Puerto Rico multiple times and our boat trip to Icacos and several other barrier islands ranks as one of our best adventures on vacation! Captain Cesar displayed great expertise as a mariner and knowledge of the wildlife, these islands and how they've evolved over the years. He anticipated anything we needed, providing snacks, drinks and a beautiful fruit platter; he even put up an umbrella on the beach for us! The boat was well equipped and spotless, the snorkeling gear was top-notch and the use of the go pro was a bonus. Cesar was not only personable and engaging but made every effort to give us the desired balance of beach and snorkeling time. We can't thank you enough, Captain Cesar, for a most memorable afternoon on the beautiful seas of Puerto Rico!

Let me start by saying, I don’t often leave reviews but felt like this was one time I had to share. We had the most amazing time on our 5 hour VIP charter! All 6 people in our group felt it was a major highlight of our trip to PR and definitely worth the money. Cesar was the best host. He made sure we were comfortable, fed, and always had a drink in hand. The water was a bit rough, but he still found us a place to snorkel, along with beautiful beaches for us to swim. Everything he served was delicious, from the margaritas offered up boat side while we swam, to the grilled steak and shrimp…not to mention his wife’s yummy pasta salad. We truly could not have asked for a more wonderful day on the water or better captain. We hope to be back soon!

BY FAR the best part of our PR trip. Ceasar was excellent and did everything he could to enhance the day for us. The guy works hard and even when you are not on the boat and enjoying the beach or snorkeling he is there cooking your lunch, running the drone, handing drinks down to you, and even hoping into the water for guidance and info for snorkeling. The drone pictures and video were absolutely amazing, well worth the extra few dollars. Everyone in my family loved the shrimp and steak grilled right on the boat. The boat is clean and safe, and fully stocked with drinks of all types.

My daughter dropped her sun glasses in the water at the dock while stepping on the boat. Ceasar went out of his way to go get a boat magnet to try to get them and called the marina to see if the diver was on duty that day. No big deal, only glasses and it was he fault for dropping them but she was upset as they were a bit expensive. I gave Ceasar a nice tip at the end for the great day and he literally tried to hand it back to me telling me to give it to my daughter for the glasses! So sincere a gesture. That's just the kind of person he is.

If we are back in PR we will definitely go out on Serenity again!

My favorite part of the experience was the freedom to explore the Puerto Rican islands without a care in the world thanks to our amazing captain, Cesar! He was very knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and an incredible host. He shared stories and provided great information about all the areas we visited. I would highly recommend that you book your tour with Serenity Sea Tours and hopefully you’ll be lucky enough to enjoy Cesar’s hospitality!!

So glad you experienced the “private vibe”. That’s really the main difference that sets the private charters apart! Of course the Captain ill always recommend the best and calmest places for the day depending on how the wind is blowing and from what direction…but aside from that, it will always be the customer who’s going to say if he/she wants to stay longer/shorter in a specific spot, move around/stay put, or do more beach vs more snorkeling based on hat you want out of your day. And we believe that’s how it should always be….its your day! Thanks again for giving us the opportunity to serve You! All best, Capt. Cesar and your Serenity Sea Tours Family.

Absolutely AMAZING. Everything about the trip was perfect from beginning to end. Covid protocols were followed and safety was clearly a priority. The boat was spacious, clean, and was stocked with everything you could possibly need. Cesar was a fantastic captain and made as all feel like life long friends. He took us to many locations with beautiful snorkeling spots, beaches, small islands and more. The food was delicious and accommodated vegans/vegetarians. Cesar was very communicative and made sure we all were having a great time throughout the day. You're provided with a go pro camera to capture your trip and Cesar later sends you a link with all your photos/videos! He has thought of everything and you can see how much he enjoys what he does. Every single person left the boat singing their praises and appreciation for Cesar.

I plan to rebook this trip with Cesar every time were in Puerto Rico.

Absolutely agree with all of the prior reviews. Captain Cesar was EXCELLENT, even before we met him (he answered one of my emails prior and was very warm and professional). We were a group of 6 ladies and seriously had the best time - must do activity in PR. Cesar was very knowledgable about the islands, wildlife, and the area/ He showed us the best spots! He was really good at anticipating what we needed, ensuring we were content at all times. He makes a killer margarita and a damn good cheeseburger. Go Pro was great to have and DRONE was a must! the videos were unreal. Thank you Cesar!

Thanks for that awesome review! Definitely agree! Once we leave our vacation and go back to our regular lives, all those thoughts could only be relived in our memories...If not for the pictures... Pictures are what make us relive, travel back to that happy place in our minds, and even share our experience with loved ones. And guess what...if pictures are bad, then memories are also bad...crappy pictures make crappy memories... This is why at Serenity Sea Tours we strongly believe in providing the best possible pictures/videos for our guests! Maybe you brought your own camera....but what if you didn’t? If this happened, don’t sweat it! You’ll be pleased to know that we made the extra effort to providing you with the best-in-class underwater cameras for you, with selfie sticks, for awesome memories (included for our beloved guests on each and every trip). And of course the addition of the drone option takes those memories over the top, showing stunning aerial pictures of our guests in paradise! Just check out a few of these on our website or our instagram page! Again, we cant thank you a enough for getting out of your way and taking the time for writing such an awesome review! Thanks you also for giving us the opportunity to serve you and we hope to see you again in the future! All best, Capt. Cesar and your Serenity Sea Tours Family.

We were looking for a snorkeling trip during our visit to Puerto Rico. Many sites said “go to Culebra” — Capt Cesar offered both that option and visiting a mix of nearby islands. He advised about likely weather/ wave conditions for this time of year… and was exactly right. We had a much better, much more relaxed and enjoyable trip among the nearby islands…and he knew all of the great places to take us.

What made it even better was the cost of a private tour here versus a family of four on one of the bigger boats only a little bit more (though if your budget allows, I would strongly recommend getting the VIP package). What we got in exchange was an amazing captain / host with fantastic food and drinks, and the ability to go wherever we wanted on our own schedule. The drone footage and underwater pictures just added to the happy memory.

So grateful for an amazing tour

This was the best experience in PR, Cesar literally took care of our 6-girl- group 😆 all around the food, his attentiveness and places he chose for us on our trip. His spots had pristine waters perfect for swimming, snorkeling and just absorbing nature. He allowed us to put up our little bday sign and helped us capture group shots.
Thank you again Cesar, from the bottom of my heart! You know why!
