“Snorkeling in paradise”
Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

Sam was very knowledgable about the island. He went above and beyond just taking us out snorkeling. I was a little disappointed that there were a lot of boats anchored near where we went, but that was beyond their control. I just wish we went earlier in our trip because he enlightened us to do mug about the island we wanted to keep exploring.

“Great tour & great service”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

We were in Vieques for five days immediately after Tropical Storm Isaac had passed by. On our second day there we stopped by Black Beard sports to set up a snorkeling tour. Sam very nicely and gently informed us that because of the storm stirring up silt, snorkeling was probably not the best option. We took his advice and scheduled an eco-tour instead.

It was a great trip. Sam was super knowledgeable and friendly about the island's past present and future. My fiancee has a fragile knee and he made a few changes to our route to accommodate us, which was much appreciated. The tour was about three hours and food and cold water were both provided.

Black Beard also has a wide variety of equipment and apparel for rent or sale and hosts an Avis location from which you can rent vehicles.

“Sam was great”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Sam took us snorkeling and on an ecotour including bike riding. He was very informative, attentive to our needs and safety conscious. We also liked our discussions about the island -- he is very well read! We recommend Black Beard sports highly.

“A shout out”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

We stayed at the W and there was a Black Beard's there. There was a guy who relocated from Denver working there the first couple of days we were there. I forget his name. He was super nice and helpful. He helped fit my son and I for snorkel equipment and gave us lots of information about the history of Vieques. He made the trip more interesting and gave us some context for when we went exploring.
