Snorkel Gear Rentals and Boat Tours

Culebra Divers - Culebra, Puerto Rico

Stop by the shop, let us fit you for gear and mark a map, 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 at Tamarindo Beach

Had your fill of turtles and snorkeling off our easily accessible beaches and want to venture out farther? Book a guided snorkel tour on our boat to explore Luis Peña Island, Carlos Rosario Beach, or other remote areas.

If you are not a comfortable swimmer and/or do not have previous snorkeling experience, we do not recommend signing up for the boat tour. Instead, we encourage you to rent gear and let us mark a map for you for the best introductory experience.

Snorkel Gear Rentals - No Reservations Required

Renting gear and snorkeling off the beach is your BEST chance to see the turtles! Snorkel gear rental is available if you want to visit one or more of the popular shore areas like Melones (best for coral/fish life), Tamarindo (best for turtles/rays), or Punta Soldado. No reservations required, our rental “day” is from pickup to close of business the following day, so stop in early to maximize your time!

Snorkel Boat Tours - Reservations Required

If you are not a comfortable swimmer and/or do not have previous snorkeling experience, we do not recommend signing up for the boat tour. Instead, we encourage you to rent gear and let us mark a map for you for the best introductory experience. You will be exiting the boat into deep water with typically no access to land. 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- Reservations Required

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!
