The weather was beautiful, the waters were calm, the instructions were clear and I was STILL scared ...BUT once I got the hang of it, it was on and poppin! This was my 1st time driving a boat and I am so happy that I had the opportunity to do this excursion. Will definitely book it again when I return to Puerto Rico

Very fun experience for my family and I. We drove a zodiac type boat as a family and explored a bit of the harbor. There was a guide as a lead boat but he allowed a good bit of freedom. Very nice to see old San Juan from the water. Easy for those with little boating experience but inexpensive enough for those with experience to still have a wonderful experience.
