On this private excursion we make our way through a hidden path across several bewildering micro-habitats and emerge at the semi-secluded white sand beach named Playuela. We then continue our journey beyond this beautiful beach to a secret path that not too many know about. This path lets out at a gorgeous, tiny secluded beach named Corcho. From here we embark on an amazing snorkeling excursion beyond sea grass plains, through a sea fan forest to an amazing section with shallow, underwater caves teeming with beautifully colored reef fish. We might even encounter another pod of dolphins! Once back on shore we’ll have a re-energizing meal and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere on the beach before heading back.
Note: There is hiking involved in this excursion so be sure to wear sturdy shoes.

We take you on a private sea turtle watching snorkeling excursion at Mosquito Pier. We’ll drive about a mile out to sea on a man made platform built by the US NAVY while they were based on Vieques. The pier at the end of the road is our destination. The pillars that hold the pier up are covered in algae which is an abundant food supply for the various sea turtles that congregate here. The sea turtles in the area are protected wild animals that come and go as they please. Touching the turtles is prohibited by federal law, please don’t try to touch the turtles.

This is one of the Best snorkeling spots on the island which is why we want to share it with you. Even if the big guys don’t make an appearance, you’ll still enjoy all the other sea life in the area.
