“Great fun!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Me and my girlfriend went on the mini boat adventure in March 2013. The trip consisted of us two and another group of 8 people. We had our own boat for the two of us and the other 8 shared two boats (i guess according to their own request) and we had two guides, each in their own boat. After a presentation of the trip and certain safety rules we were on our way. In each boat there was a cooler with water and some fruit and chips etc. It took some gettig use to driving the boat but after 5 minutes we were getting the hang of it while it was still challanging enough to be fun.
First stop was at a nice reef with some prett good snorkling. Second stop was at a small island with beautiful sand and water. There we had the choice of chilling on the beach or snorkling and we decided to do a bit of both. The snorkling here was not very good since most of the reef was pretty dead but my gf who hasn't done a lot of snorkeling still thought it was nice since there were some fish to look at. After the second stop it was time to head home.
+Great fun having your own boat and overall a great excursion.
+Guides and other representatives of the company were very professional and seemed aware of safety etc. All contacts with the company were very pleasent and they catered for my girlfriend allergy on short notice.
+Good snorkeling at first stop and beautiful beach at second stop.
-Not so good snorkeling at second stop, reef was pretty much dead.
-The second stop was a bit too short, would not have hurt staying there a 1/2 hour longer.

All and all I would do it again even if there are a few things that could be better. I you haven't snorkeled before you probably wont even realize that the snorkeling could be better. Without having done the mid day trip I would still recommend the morning trip because of the sun not being that strong and since there will be less other people around earlier in the day.

“they made the best out of a not so good situation”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We were very pleased with our tour. We booked the Island Hop with Snorkel Tour, well the morning of the tour we received a call saying visibility was low and we would not do the snorkel portion, it would just be an island hop with the mini boat. They also gave us $20 off the total. We decided to do it, why not? We're glad we did. Both of the tour captains are great and knowlegeable. The two islands we visited were breathtakingly beautiful! "Screen-saver view" as one tour captain stated. We would highly recommend and would do this tour again!

“Exploration and Adventure at its BEST!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

If you are in Puerto Rico, and you like exploring/adventure, THIS is the excursion for you! We were in PR for 4 days and THANK GOD we devoted half of a day to this. We did the tour at 8:30am and hoped it wouldn't be too cold, it was PERFECT TIMING. Not cold and not blazing hot. We were staying in Gran Melia on Rio Grande and it took us app. 35 minutes to get there in the morning. Fairly easy to find compared to some other activities.

I hope I am correct with the names, but Captain Jeff and Lucas were GREAT! They were informative, helpful, and very friendly. It didn't seem like they were jaded in any way. They knew everything about the places we went to and even showed us St. Thomas from Palominito. They gave us time to do our photo sessions and we got to take a picture from every possible angle. They were genuinely nice and interested in showing us a good time.

This tour is a MUST! I hope I get to do it again. Thanks for EVERYTHING Kayaking Puerto Rico / Mini Boat Adventures!!!!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

This mini-boating excursion was great all around. Great tour guides, snorkling was fun, and best of all- the views were incredible. If you do nothing else in your visit to PR, this has to be the one thing you do! Great jobs, Mini Boat Adventures. See you all again soon! :)

“Mini Boat Adventure was great”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

A great way to see lots of small islands in one fun easy experience.
Jump on your own private boat with a friend or significant other and sail the open seas (sort of!)

Bring sunscreen!
