  • Get up close with Puerto Rico's marine life without all the complications of SCUBA diving
  • View local underwater creatures like squid, starfish, octopus and sea urchins
  • Get deeper underwater than you would when snorkeling thanks to a breathing apparatus that floats on the surface
  • Option to purchase souvenir photos of your underwater adventure for an additional fee
  • Perfect underwater trip for beginners that want to see more than a typical snorkeling trip
Head to San Juan’s Caribe Hilton in the morning, picking from a range of departure options that works with your schedule. You’ll meet your guides for the day, receive your necessary equipment and get a quick pre-trip briefing on underwater safety measures and hand signals.

You’ll then head to the hotel’s beach along a shallow cove, offering the perfect setting for beginners who can choose how far they want to venture along the underwater area’s gradually deepening bottom. You'll breath via a underwater tube attached to an apparatus floating up at the surface. Rest assured that the trip will be catered to the experience and comfort level of each guest.

The actual ‘dive’ portion of the trip typically lasts for 30 to 45 minutes, during which you’ll follow your guide as you search for marine life like starfish, octopus, squid, and sea urchins. During some portions of the year, you may even view seahorses and marine slugs. Souvenir photos will be taken during your underwater adventure, which can be purchased for an extra fee at the end of the trip.

When you come back to the surface, enjoy a short debrief session with your guides, during which you can discuss the marine life you saw during the excursion and review the photos taken underwater. Changing rooms, bathrooms and showers are available for tour guests when they return. You’ll end your trip here in the hotel.

Were told to arrive 15 minutes prior to, however, the stand wasn't even open yet. Employees arrived right at 10 am, were very disorganized. Said we were supposed to fill out a waiver online to save time and they didn't have hard copy ones. However, we never received any e-waiver from Viator. Very fast instruction, guide told us flat out that he wasn't taking a camera into the water. We saw a few fish, but because it's in the cove that the hilton hotel uses as their beach, save your money and rent a snorkel set up and you'll have the same experience we did.
