Don't pass this one up! Paco is a terrific guide and so informative. The boat is comfortable and shaded. Paco provides all the gear to snorkel and a great sandwich and fruit snack. The monkeys were very active and plenty of fish while snorkeling. Got to share the cruise with a fun family from Ohio! A wonderful Puerto Rico experience!!!!

There are two parts to this trip - Monkey Island as an attraction and snorkeling at two locations. We were not too lucky with weather in the days prior to the trip, so not too much to see under water. Monkeys were a great spectacle. The boat is well tended and sturdy. Lots of equipment on board, including an attached... More

We met Captain Paco just after 12:30 for the boat ride to Monkey Island. His boat runs well and has a shade cover. Captain Paco is very funny and very knowledgeable about the area. The boat ride is about 15 minutes. You get close enough to see the monkeys but can't go on the island. Then we spent about an... More

First of all, my wife and I were born and raised in Puerto Rico. Yesterday was our first time on the boat ride. We were blown away by the beauty of our own island once again. Master Captain Paco is just an amazing and wise man. He truly enjoys what he does and loves sharing his knowledge with his clients.... More

Captain Paco is a character and a very nice guy. He did his best to make sure that this was a fun trip and despite some sloppy weather conditions he showed great seamanship and did his best to make it a great morning trip for all of us. Snorkling was not amazing, but decent, especially near the monkey feeding station.... More

We went to Monkey Island with Captain Paco and saw monkeys and snorkeled in two different locations. We had a two-year-old with us, so he paddled with one of the adults on the kayak Paco provided. On the way out to the island Captain Paco provided percussion instruments and we played along with the radio. He taught us how to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed The boat ride over to monkey Island. Paco, The boat owner, would explain things in a way we could understand. He knows the island and its history especially when to comes to research conditions and the monkeys sent into space.

Captain Paco is a hardworking character who will brighten up your day, no matter what the weather. The day we went out it was pretty choppy - a bit hairy actually -- but Captain Paco insisted all would be fine. After I got over the motion sickness from the swells on the way out, it was a fun day of... More
