Vieques Island Has a Rich History:

Today, this gorgeous area is under the guidance and protection of the US Fish & Wildlife Service, meaning that access is limited and marine life is protected.
Vieques Island is the best place for snorkeling and diving in Puerto Rico—you don’t want to miss this!

Once you feel comfortable with your gear and are ready to snorkel, one of our guides will take you to the diverse part of the reef and point out all the sea life. Of course high quality snorkeling gear and flotation devices are included on this remarkable beach & snorkel trip!
Incomparable Snorkeling Experience
Due to Pure Adventure’s proximity to the beautiful Vieques Island, it’s a quick 20-minute ride aboard our custom dive and snorkel boat affectionately called “Fish Tank”. Our adventurers can snorkel with sea turtles, rays, tropical fish, and even manatees that venture into the reefs and beaches of Vieques.
Enjoy an incomparable snorkeling experience and connect with nature on a deeper level with our Marine Biologist tour guides. Your guide—we are the only tour operator with professional snorkeling guides in the water—will help you to identify the corals and diverse marine life, and advise you on where to snorkel in order to see the widest variety of sea life!
After a brisk, exciting snorkeling session get ready for a relaxing time on the beach where you will experience one of the beaches that Vieques is famous for! As you relax on a pristine, sandy beach, the view to the West is dominated by the mountains of the Rain Forest “El Yunque” rising up from the eastern coast of Puerto Rico. Meanwhile the Captain and crew will be serving a variety of local delights and treats all for your enjoyment!
Since there aren’t any rivers that carry silt into the waters of Vieques Island, its waters are crystal clear throughout the year. No matter if you’re planning a solo trip or a family vacation, it’s always a great time to visit Vieques and make fabulous memories.
