ELENAS SNORKELING PRIVATE TOUR

Playa Los Liros backside Icacos
SNORKELING PRIVATE BOAT CHARTER - FAJARDO P R

We visit the turquoise isles just off Fajardo, Puerto Rico. Fish, corals and exquisitely colored clear waters with white coral sands are what Caribbean dreams are made of. Our 'signature trip'  is an exclusive trip.  We offer the boat, captain and a snorkeling guide who goes in the water with you.

EXPLORE THE COLORFUL UNDERWATER WORLD AT YOUR PACE.

First time snorkelers will stop at a shallow, incredibly clear water, spot where we try out our gear and learn 'the ropes', after which we move on to a deeper spot where the fish are waiting to be fed! What an incredible experience.

We take experienced snorkelers to more difficult reefs, always depending on weather conditions. After a leisurely snorkel off Lobos Island we move to the backside of Icacos, for an hours break on this beautiful, pristine beach. Los Lirios beach (above) is our own private paradise because few other boats can get into this hidden cove. Enjoy your lunch. After lunch we move to another reef, in a different area.

Our very personal attention, snorkeling at your own pace with a guide in the water with you, all contribute to a terrific day. Lots of sun, lots of reef, little islands all in a row. exclusive trip with a boat and a guide is quite different than what other people offer.  We meet in Fajardo which is a one hour drive east of San Juan.

Reef Safe Sunscreen

email Elena: < elenastour@hotmail.com >

Please Note: We LOVE guests who use 'rashgards' to protect against the sun. Why? Because it reduces the amount of UV sun block that does hurt the corals and on you too!.

Here's something I bet you didn't know: the active ingredients in sunscreens stay active when they wash off of your body into the sea. When they land on coral reefs, the sunscreens block the beneficial rays of sun which keep bad bugs on the coral at bay, and encourage viruses which eventually bleach and kill the reef. Be sure to use a very waterproof sunblock and apply it well before getting in the water.
