Without fail, this was the highlight to our week long vacation in PR. Incredibly organized, knowledgeable, professional and authentic in their passion. The experience with the ferry was as easy as it gets. Our confirmation numbers were text to us, as promised, by 6:30 am. Gaining the Ferry Ticket was a simple as a walk to the counter, by-passing the much longer line to buy them. We arrived early to the ferry and found ourselves in line with everyone, threw down our blankets and took a nap on our noodles while we waited for onboarding for the ferry. Expect everyone to be doing just that. You get in line to wait, and everyone makes themselves comfortable, so we did the same. Feel free to bring your chairs, coolers, blankets and all beach essentials, because everyone does.The ferry ride was slow and steady, and since I am prone to motion sickness, I took a Dramamine and took a nap for the ride. Ferry left at 9:30 am, we arrived at the port at 7:30 am and we reached Culebra by 10:35. Once we arrived, Laura had her sign and greeted me by name with a warm smile, intense energy and presence. Her lead is easy to follow. Short walk to the bus and we were on our way. The ride to Playa Tamarindo was quick. Once we arrived, Laura and Damion gave us clear instructions on what to do, what to expect, and fitted us all in our fins and masks. Never moving too quickly to understand but I felt with a pace that was fitting for the experience, as to not waste a single moment of the adventure! Once we were in the water, Laura shepherded us over to where she knew the sea turtles would be! We saw our first within 10 min of being in the water. We experienced seeing 10 stingrays in a grouping, star fish, unique spider like fish and several sea turtles. We took turns diving down for pictures and exploration. It was amazing! The water was warm and choppy, but so easy to float and get lost in. After an hour of snorkeling, we exited the water and were greeted with nourishment. Fresh homemade, local Puerto Rican style spread sandwiches and even a vegetarian option for the vegetarians in our group, apples, chips, water and hands down the most fabulously tasting can of Coke I have ever had! Perhaps that was the Culebra magic sprinkled into it! We ate and talked, connected with our new found friends and learned about why Laura and Damion decided to create this experience after they elected to “retire”. Once lunch was complete, we were shuttled over to one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, Playa de Flamenco. Truly, pictures and words cannot frame what this amazing piece of the planet holds. The softest, finest, warmest sand, white and light gray in color. Turquoise and deep blue, clear warm Caribbean waters. Everyone in this beaches presence had contagious smiles from ear to ear. The energy was joyful and relaxed with excitement. It was truly paradise for all senses. There were several kiosks to purchases drinks and food from as well, and we enjoyed some delicious mango margaritas. Headstands, handstands, floating, relaxing, smiling, sharing and experiencing this marvel was such a delight; truly the highlight to our vacation. We were afforded a full 3 hours at Playa de Flamenco and at 4 pm, Laura was there to collect us all to shuttle us back to board the ferry. Another easy and smooth experience and we all slept on the way back. Overall, the experience was profoundly beautiful and cathartic. I have deep appreciation for Culebra Island Adventures and what they are offering. I am honored to have experienced their passion and knowledge. I am already planning to come back next June and look forward to rebooking with CIA!
This snorkeling tour is the best part of our trip to Puerto Rico! It was absolutely an amazing lifetime experience. Lauda and Damian have amazing free dive skills and we were very well impressed. Lauda is absolutely a mermaid when she is in the water! Damian has impeccable butterfly swim skills. So you are very safe when you put your life in their hands. We learnt a great deal from both of them. After we later compared with other tourists, we find that CIA would bring you to snorkel both along Tamarindo Beach and the pristine beautiful Carlos Rosario Beach. So you could enjoy not only watching turtles and swimming with stingrays, but also explore in depth about the reefs. Besides, it is the first time for my husband and me to snorkel in the open water, but Lauda and Damian worked out to took a lot of beautiful photos for both of us. We are very much touched and will definitely choose CIA again when we return to Culebra Island.
Had a great experience with Culebra Island Adventures. Laura and Damien were so good to us. I had a trip booked for the end of July but because of weather couldn’t make it. I rescheduled and then wound up having to reschedule with them again due to medical reasons. They were so patient through all of this getting us ferry tickets again as well (going to stand in line at the ferry terminal at 5am for us). Finally got to the snorkeling excursion with Laura and she made us feel so comfortable, giving us water before the trip (and after), taking pictures for us so we didn’t have to, pointing out and explaining everything we were seeing. Oh yeah and we saw a ton of turtles! When we got back to shore, she had sandwiches, chips, soda, water and juice for us. Overall just outstanding. If you have a chance to get to Culebra and want to snorkel and see some turtles, book a trip with Culebra Island Adventures.
Laura & Damian's tour was the highlight of our trip! Wonderful people who obviously love what they do & love sharing with others. They went out of their way to prepare vegetarian homemade sandwiches for us, which were delicious. Our kids age 15, 12 & 11 all LOVED the snorkeling tour! It was amazing to swim with the turtles & Laura pointed out wildlife we certainly would have missed like an octopus, stingray & spotted eel! Our greatest treasure was an empty conch shell sitting outside the octopus den which he had obviously just eaten the occupant! My only complaint was that I wish we would have had more time at Tamarindo and less at Flamenco Beach. Not that Flamenco was not beautiful because it is breath taking, but the snorkeling was just so magical that I did not want to leave. :)
This was the best experience of our trip to Puerto Rico, hands down. Look no further than this excursion! From start to finish, the trip was exceedingly organized and well run. We felt well taken care of, even down to personalized fitting of the masks and fins! The exclusive reef that you are taken to is outstanding, I was amazed by the beautiful colors and sea life that we saw (Including numerous sea turtles, a school of blue tang, squid, and octopus, a sting ray...just to name a few). You will not be disappointed if you book with them, this is an outstanding company and well worth it!
