Stop by the shop, grab some snorkel gear, let us mark a map for you, and off you go to look for turtles or just have fun in the sun – we make it easy – no tour required and this is your BEST chance to see the turtles!

Snorkel Boat Tours

You will be exiting the boat into deep water with no access to land, so we recommend you be a comfortable swimmer prior to signing up for one of our boat tours. If you are not a comfortable swimmer and/or do not have previous snorkeling experience, we encourage you to rent gear and let us mark a map for you versus signing up for a boat tour. Our snorkel trips by boat allow you to explore some of the more remote areas around Culebra (e.g. Carlos Rosario or Luis Peña Island which is only accessible by boat). 

The site(s) will be chosen according to weather and sea conditions. Our goal is to have you snorkel in calm protected water so you can fully enjoy watching the life on the busy reefs. On board we’ll have plenty of water and snacks (please exercise caution if you have any food allergies).

Snorkel Boat Tours (cont.)

Wear a bathing suit, bring a towel and reef safe sunscreen – we’ll provide the rest! We have towels and reef-safe sunscreen for purchase in our dive shop if you forget yours!

  • The boat departs the dock at 2:00PM (your arrival time 1:30PM) and returns at approximately 4:30PM.
  • In order to avoid schedule conflicts, we ask that you not book flights immediately after the tour as return times are not guaranteed.

NOTE: We require a minimum of two (2) participants on our afternoon boat. Culebra Divers reserves the right to cancel the afternoon tour if only one person signs up.
