“Snorkeling one day, fishing the other, both excellent”

Maragata Yacht Charter Day Trip
Reviewed May 20, 2013

One day, my group of 8 adults went snorkeling off Vieques with first mate Frank giving us a tour of la Playa Verde (sea turtles, barracuda, eels, eagle rays, and more!). After we snorkeled, we all got to jump off the captains bridge (10-15 foot height) off into the water below. Then, the next day, 5 of us went on a 4 hour fishing trip where we caught 6 barracuda. On both trips, Capt Matt had snacks and drinks (soda, water, beer) included and both he and Frank were friendly, talkative, and very helpful. We had so much fun on both trips and would definitely recommend and do again ourselves.

THE CONTINENTAL SHELF: Four hour trip with Capt. Matt and First Mate Frank....not much biting that day, but catch consisted of nice 20lb King Mackerel and a good size Spanish Mackerel. Both Capt and mate were very accommodating and pleasant! Would book again with them, next time in PR.

We (4 adults) chartered Captain Matt and First Mate Frank to take us fishing and to do some snorkeling on Vieques. We caught a beautiful mahi-mahi and a jack on the way and had enough fish to eat for the next few days. (We also caught a mean barracuda on the way back!) Matt brought us to a wonderful beach and Frank snorkeled with us to show us the best spots. We saw a spotted sting-ray - a wonderful sight! We had all the beer and soda we could drink and snacks, too. It was a glorious day - I can't wait to go back! Thank you Matt and Frank for a wonderful time!

Our family of 11 (8 adults, 3 children) went to Vieques Island with Captain Matt and First Mate Frank. It was one of the best things we did while staying in Palmas del Mar. Would HIGHLY recommend this for anyone who likes the water. It was great for the kids because they are too young to go to a reef and snorkel. And it was easy to get them to the beach from the boat so they could play in the sand and swim. It was almost like we had a private island to ourselves. Matt and Frank could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Good snorkeling (guided), nice beach, great boat. After snacks and drinks, we even jumped off the boat from the top level-so fun!

We (six adults and three kids-12, 10, 8) went on a trip with Captain Matt and his first mate, Frank, on a snorkeling trip to Vieques. After a bumpy 30 mins boat ride out, we hit the water. Water was warm, snorkeling was good as we saw a sea turtle and a sting ray. Swam back to the boat to rest and the kids did some jumps of the back, side, and captain's nest. They provided some snacks, beer, water, and soda. We did some more swimming around the boat and then headed back in. A good time! Thanks Capt. Matt and Frank!
