I booked two excursions with this company, the "Aquafari at Culebra's" and "Bio Bay At Fajardo".

** This company gives a $10 discount per person if you book two excursions with them, so make sure you get it if is not mentioned but they always do. **

The Aquafari consist of a 3 activity day, swim, kayak and snorkel.

If you are in the mainland a ferry needs to be taken to Culebra's Island - ( the lines are crazy, so be there early, have someone make the line for the ferry to Culebra's Island while you get the tickets which are included in the price of the excursion ) - The ferry ride is about a 45 - 55 minutes, once you arrive you'll be taken to the welcome center and then the fun begins... First stop Flamingo beach beautiful beach very clean, beautiful view, a very great way to start the day, around the area there are some kiosk with souvenirs and food, personal favorite is kiosk #6 and got the Shark Nuggets for as weird as it sounds trust me on this one is a very tasty dish. After that you are taken to Tamarindo Beach for your Second stop which is the kayaking, all the gear is available as well as snacks, once in the kayak you are taken deep in the sea where the corals are and that's where stop 3 begins with the snorkeling you get a in dept overview of the coral a unforgettable experience, after the snorkel is done you go back to the kayak and the kayak back. The surprise we got is after kayaking you are taken to a near by location to snorkel side by side with the turtles and that will be the Aquafari excursion, the ppl the guided are all very fun, informative and helpful.

Be ready to spend most of the day there, you wont regret it !

First off we are avid kayakers and snorkelers. We have done it all over the world and there was no one on our tour who had not kayaked before. I only know that because our guides asked. Now that seemed to be only an empty question. The guide Brian treated us like total children(there were no kids on our tour). He was rude and demeaning to some of the guests and we were all made to follow in a line to our destination. They would yell at you if you weren't exactly in line. Given the wide open space and no shallow reefs I felt it unnecessary. We wasted time circling in a line to get to the destination which was fairly close. There was not much freedom of path or exploration, which made us feel like we should have just rented kayaks and gone on our own. The reef was ok, but there wasn't much given in the way of explaining what was out there in terms of non-coral sea life. We were thoroughly disappointed and would not recommend it to our friends. I have used KPR in the past and felt like they were great for Mini-Boating and Bio Bay tours, but Aquefari Culebra was an unwelcome break from an otherwise great track record.

This was one of best trip we took. KPR staff from registration to end rocks!.

I don't know swimming but, with life jacket on, I did it.

My 7 year daughter who did not wanted to do it, once she went in water snorkeling, she never look back , she had best time seeing fish, reef, and swim with turtles.

Brian was our tour guide, with jewel and Norman. They are great team. They helped us out a lot, given we had 7 and 10 year old kids with us kayaking for first time. They were extremely friendly and walked us through step by step.

If you are taking snorkeling trip to culebra, don't even think twice to go with KPR.

The Aquafari tour with kayaking puerto rico was so much fun!!!! We had Brian as our guide and he was great ! The ferry ride to culebra was about an hour long. The ferry ride was included in the price of the excursion which is great considering there are people there from 6 am standing on line to purchase the ferry ticket . Once at Culebra we were taken to Flamenco Beach to swim for a little and to grab a bite. The beach was GORGEOUS!!! We ate at one of the kiosks and had shark nuggets , pretty tasty. We then headed to Tamarindo Bay for our Kayaking/Snorkeling. The kayaking was simple . We kayaked to reefs. Brian was very knowledgeable about the reef life. we were able to snorkel around for a bit also .He was very carfeful and had us be careful as well. We then kayaked back to shore. From there we were able to snorkel some more and we saw turtles. it was nice to swim alongside the turtles. The snorkel equipment was included and snacks as well. If you have the chance to do this tour, don't think twice about it!!

if they ranks the second, i could not imagine who can top it.

Very friendly and helpful guides. the group was 20 people (10 kayaks), a little big but would not be a problem. It is just a perfectly organized tour and the guides are very experienced.

One big pro is they take underwater photos for you and post on their facebook page the second day, it is the greatest souvenir and it is FREE! I know there are company charging $10 or $15 for each photo but not Kayaking PR.

The tour is a two parter, first you see some reef and tropical fishes, not as good as the Hawaiian reef but still worth seeing. Then you see A LOT OF sea turtles and you can swim side by side with them. It is important not to touch them at any time.

If you don't speak spanish like me, you are in for a treat. We have one of the three guides demonstrates and introduces only for me and my girl friend, the big group was guided in Spanish.
