Spent a week in Puerto Rico, did a lot of great things, but the whole family 2, 50-year-olds and 4, 18-year-olds agreed this was the best thing we did. East Island Tours set us up with the boat Eco Esleno with Captain Arturo and crew Christie and Christian. The day before we got a friendly phone call to make sure we knew where to go. They warned us that the seas might be a little rough in the morning, which they were. Of the 6 of us, 2 found the hour-long trip to the reef a little nauseating, and 4 thoroughly loved the thrill ride. We then arrived at the reef where we snorkeled for about 1 1/2 hours. The water was still and clear. We saw hundreds of different kinds of colorful fish from an inch to a foot long. One of us had never snorkeled before, and the crew were really great at making him feel competent, confident, and comfortable. They had float belts for anyone concerned about treading water, and offered to give snorkeling lessons to anyone who wanted them. They also provided snorkeling gear which was clean and in good shape. We then got back on board again, and traveled to Flamenco, where we anchored a short distance from shore. Then they served us a great lunch. Drinks with and without rum! and snacks had been flowing since we left Fajardo, but now they served us a really great lunch. REALLY good crusty bread rolls and a wide variety of sandwich meats, cheeses, pasta salad, bean salad, cabbage slaw, fruit, cookies, were all fresh and filling. My daughter, a vegetarian, found the options satisfying too. After eating we had the choice of another reef with good snorkeling, or it was a short swim to the beach. After reading previous reviews, we bought waterproof bags on Amazon to get our gear to shore. The boat can't dock at the beach. It wasn't really necessary. We didn't need clothes, shoes or towel. But I was happy to have my good camera with me. Previous reviews also concerned us about the distance we might have to swim to get to shore, but it was nothing. I'll post pictures below showing the boat and beach. Most of the distance was less than 5 feet deep. The crew offered to help anyone get to shore who thought they needed help, but no one did. It's clear why Flamenco Beach is consistently named in the top 10 list of most beautiful beaches in the world. The sand was white and as soft as powder. The waves were so clear they looked like spun glass. The color of the water was the most brilliant aqua. We were there the first week in January, considered a busy holiday week, yet there were not many people on the beach at all. When it was time to return to the boat 2.5 hours on the beach, Arturo blew the horn. The 45 minute ride back to Fajardo was much easier than in the morning. As I was thinking I wished we had more time on the reef and more time on the beach, my daughter commented that the day was just perfect -- that we had spent just the right amount of time at each stop. The crew was attentive, friendly, and entertaining, without being goofy or obnoxious. They provided really good instructions on how to make the most of our experience, as well as how to be safe and how to respect the natural environment we were in. The boat was small and intimate, but we traveled with a total of less than 20 people. We had plenty of room to spread out. It seemed much better than the other large groups we saw departing at the marina. We even had a bathroom on board. The boat and bathroom was spotlessly clean. My ONLY suggestion is for them to get a longer music track. Great music, but we heard it about 4 times from the beginning to the end of the day. Although it wasn't necessary, we left a rather large tip for each member of the crew quite simply because they gave us an awesome day. We will do this again some day.

Great tour with East Island Excursions ... the best staff.
The crew very highly professional, versatile, kind and very friendly, offered us during the trip to Culebra, lunch buffet, open bar, music, in his comfortable and ample catamaran. Diving, swimming, visiting and getting to know Flamenco beach, recognized among the 10 best in the world, complement this extremely recommended tour, which you should not miss if you are visiting Puerto Rico.

This was great. so worth the money. Went with my 11,13 year olds and they snorkeled for the first time. They give you plenty of time to snorkle, plenty of food and very friendly staff. After we left snorkeling we went to Flamingo to hang out. Beautiful beach. It was a great time.

excellent trip made even better by the crew. snorkeling was great and the little beach they took us to after was gorgeous. The crew did all the little things to make this trip better. Whether it was adding a little extra or a little less rum to the drinks based on your preference, helping the people who had trouble swimming get off the boat and to the beach or helping those who knew how to swim to get their drink to the beach unscathed, or the fact that they made a last minute detour stopping at flamenco beach as planned but deciding not to anchor when they saw it was a bad day for that beach instead taking us to culebrita which was gorgeous unanimously agreed by the passengers to have been a great decision by the crew.

This trip was amazing! I honestly didnt book this trip for the snorkeling, but because I wanted to check out some of the islands. We went to Culebra and Culebrita - both of which were beautiful with crystal waters and white sand. The lunch they served was delicious and the staff on board was so nice, friendly, and had a good sense of humor. I wish I would have taken two of these trips during my time in San Juan!

This combined snorkeling and beach trip from Fajardo to Culebra was simply great. It helped that the day was warm and dry, but the scenery was wonderful and the crew very friendly. Easily the highlight of our week in Puerto Rico.

Do NOT miss this experience.
The crew was great, very helpful and interactive with the guests.
Kayla was sweet and helpful.
Flamenco beach was exquisite with the clearest and bluest waters. Snorkeling along the reefs and the walk to the US tanks on the beach..priceless!

Best Experience of the entire vacation! Totally worth every penny! Shuttle service from Condado was worth it as well. Snorkeling on the reef with huge coral and plenty of fish was fantastic. Then just a short boat trip to Flamenco beach where I have never before seen sand so white. Please just be aware that there is an about 300 foot swim from the boat to the beach as there is no dock. The boat staff went out of their way to make the trip memorable. Highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting San Juan.

We had an awesome time! Capt. Manny, Kealah, Raymond and Neff were all very attentive and enthusiastic. They definitely had the right attitude to make sure everyone had a good time. They even went out of their way to make sandwiches for the young kids and let them ride up front like the captain. A++

Fantastic trip! The crew was awesome and kept us laughing the entire time. I highly recommend taking this trip if you're visiting Puerto Rico. Bring a waterproof bag for your camera! You have to swim to shore once you reach the Culebra and you'll want your phone for pictures. Bring Dramamine if it's possible you might get sea sick. I took it and was fine, but some others did get sick. If you visit Flamenco beach you will feel as if you've reached heaven on earth.

This is a must-do trip in PR! The staff, trip and beaches are all top notch. The convenience of travel to and from Fajardo is incredible. The water is choppy on the way to Culebra! But once you get there it is entirely worth it! I would take this trip again!

This trip is a great value -- snorkeling, the beach, lunch, and drinks. The crew members were terrific, providing lots of guidance to those of us who did not have experience with snorkeling. Just one caution: Use lots of sunscreen!
