This was our first family vacations together. We choose to do the Catamaran day trip to Culebra. It was the highlight of our 8 day vacation. The crew of of Alex, Willie, the captain and Coral were awesome. I had been to Culebra before but the other 11 had not and no one was disappointed. The food, crew and organization of the whole operation from booking to the Marina was professional and on schedule. We highly recommend East Island Excursions.
What an amazing ride! My son and I had an amazing time. The ride was awesome as we sat outside the entire time, the buffet lunch was delicious, Flamenco beach was beautiful and the staff was friendly and funny. We had a great time! We will definitely do this again next year.
The trip was fantastic. The crew were professional, helpful and attentive. Highly recommend. Flamenco beach is one of the most beautiful we’ve seen.
My husband, our 23 and 18 year old daughters,and I greatly enjoyed our snorkeling and Flamenco beach trip. Chris was Awesome! He kept us all entertained. Flamenco beach was so beautiful! We all agreed that this was a highlight of our trip to Puerto Rico
Highly recommend this excursion. Crew was exceptional!!!! Full of knowledge and extremely attentive. One of the best things we did on the trip!!
Excellent day trip and awesome crew! This was my second time taking the excursion. The Culebra Island is absolutely beautiful. The crew members were all very friendly and helpful. It was a great experience.
Do you like crystal clear ocean and snorkeling? Do you like water that is not to cold or too warm? Do you like rum? You get all this and more when you take this trip to snorkel a couple of reefs and then wind down at the gorgeous Flamenco beach (Rated the 2nd most beautiful beach in the world by the Discover channel). I could have stayed here for days – the staff was courteous and knowledgeable. You should be able to swim to take this tour, unless you want to stay on the boat the entire time. I saw children as young as 4, but I would not recommend this for a child under 8 years of age.
The Catamaran is absolutely the best trip ever. The Crew is Exceptional..Levi, aka The Coolest White boy in Fajardo PR Sorren, Jessie and The Captain Manny meet every expectation you will need in this excursion. This is a must with this Crew & company everything is epic!!!Food and drinks are beyond your expectations!
This was a very fun and exciting trip for my family and I. We did the trip to Culebra. I want to first say The Crew Levi, Sorren, Jessie and Captain Manny were beyond great and made sure everyone was accommodated. Every few minutes they made sure we were good with drinks. A couple of my family members got sea sick and they were right there to help out clean up and make sure they were comfortable. The snorkeling was awesome and before we went in the crew informed us of all of the safety and dangers of swimming by the protected reef. Then we stopped at flamenco one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. All around a cool experience and everyone enjoyed themselves. Definitely bring a waterproof camera to take lots of pictures and bring cash to tip these wonderful workers. Customer service A+++
Had a great time with this company. Well-organized, which was good because they have many different options leaving at around the same time. We did the snorkeling excursion and then swimming at the Island of Culebra. Amazing views in the clear water. My boys loved jumping and flipping off the side of the boat. If you get sea-sick or are not sure, buy some Dramamine. Quite a few people got seasick but we had all taken a pill about an hour before the trip and had no problems. Oh, and free rum drinks for Mom and Dad!
We took the catamaran tour to Culebra for snorkeling and a few hours at Flamenco beach. The ride there was exciting and let me be the first to tell you- be prepared to get wet. The snorkel gear was nice. The boat was clean and spacious for the amount of people that were on it. Lunch was buffet style and was delicious. The rum drinks were very tasty. Flamenco beach is breathtaking and I will go back for sure. The crew on the boat did such a good job caring for us. Alexandra and Herman were the deck crew that made sure we all had everything we needed. They were amazing! This tour was a blast and we would use this company again for sure.
My family and I did the trip to Culebra & Flamenco Beach on July 31, 2017. We had such an amazing time. Levi in particular was there for each and every member the entire day. They were all very attentive and caring. The trip out was very rough because of the current but Levi and crew did their best to keep us feeling better. Once we arrived to go snorkeling, the crew made sure we were fell fed and safe. The best part of the trip was Flamenco Beach. It was an experience my wife and kids will never forget. Beautiful sand and water. I highly recommend this trip for anyone visiting Puerto Rico.
My husband and I booked spots on the Island Flyer catamaran and our guides were Arturo, Julie, Willy and Luis. They were all fantastic. This catamaran was a little smaller than the other ones that are available so it didn’t feel super packed or uncomfortable. We met some great people on the boat. The food and snacks and drinks they served were all delicious and readily available. The snorkel spot we stopped at was beautiful and Culebra island was magnificent. Flamenco beach is in the top 10 in the world for a reason. Thank you east island excursions for and amazing time!!
My friend and I were lucky enough to come across East Island Excursion for our Culebra trip. Everything was perfect, from the booking to the actual excursion. We couldn’t have asked for a better crew… Captain Manny, Levi, Jorge, Raymond, Alexandra and I can’t forget Domingo who was our transportation to and from our hotel. Although the weather wasn’t the best that it could’ve been, our crew made up for it. They really strive to cater to you in every possible way (even diving for my sunglasses which I dropped when we had anchored). I totally would recommend East Island Excursion for any of their tours… you will not be disappointed!!
We had a blast! Highlight of our trip! Made new friends and the crew was outstanding! The snorkeling was great. I hope my pictures turn out. I would do this again 100 times over !!!!
This is the second time I’ve used East Island Excursions and I don’t plan on using any other company. We’ve chartered a private catamaran through East Island & have taken a regular public catamaran to Culebra. The captain and guides are excellent, they’re super fun and make you feel at home. You can tell they LOVE what they do. We had Levi, Christen and Carlos as our captain and guides on our private catamaran. They give you advice on the best beaches and snorkeling places but they allow you to make your own decision. The price for a private charter and round trip transportation is EXTREMELY reasonable! I plan on renting the boat again next year.
Reserve your spot now! This trip to Culebra, Flamenco Beach is SO much fun and is so beautiful! We sat outside on the Eco Isleno and enjoyed the beautiful views leaving Fajardo cruising to Culebra. Our amazing team of Alexis, Mariel and William took the best care of us – from safety tips, to snorkeling equipment, to a great lunch, and even better drinks – they were so much fun! We would ABSOLUTELY use East Island Excursions again!!
The captain and crew were awesome and not afraid to join the fun, snorkeling and sights were breathtaking! The water was clear and they do not cheat you on the rum. Plenty of fish to be seen!
I was in Puerto Rico with 9 of my friends and we were staying on the other side of Puerto Rico. We drove 3 hours to the place and it was definitely worth every minute. We choose to snorkel in Culebra island and go to Flamenco beach. The staff on the boat were great they checked on you constantly. The food was perfect for the type of excursions. We jumped off the side of the boat and went swimming, took amazing pictures. Snorkeling in Culebra was beautiful, but Flamenco beach was the best part, most beautiful beach I have seen. The music on the boat was great, Alexis was very entertaining and helpful. It was 100% worth our 3 hour drive.
Just great, we had a trip and was better than expected, snorkeling was an outstanding experience, flamenco beach it was stunning. Also the food its was really good. In addition the Crew of the spirit are super, William the captain , Coral and the others, they are the best, they are welcoming, kind, and they show professionalism and respect for the environment, and they educate people in how to protect the reef. I think if u are in PR u must book a trip with them, u will have not regrets. We will be back
