This trip was my favorite experience in Puerto Rico. The staff were super nice, always making sure we had a drink in our hands. Food was great. First, we went to the beach and then we sailed to a reef to see more fish. The beach was crystal clear so I recommend if you bring your own snorkeling gear you can use it there, I was able to see a lot. During the snorkeling portion I saw some fish and jelly fish and it was plenty of time. I would do this trip again without a doubt. Icacos was the clearest beach on the island

This was by far the best crew my boyfriend and I had during a catamaran sailing trip. They were upbeat, polite and just happy individuals. Each one of the guys were so determined to make sure everyone on the boat was alright and having a blast. The music was anything by disappointing. They kept the party alive. The day went by so fast with all the fun. I highly recommend booking this company for the Icacos half day catamaran trip. I can't wait to go back again. If you're reading this...thank you so much guys. You've given us a very memorable experience.

Disappointing!
We purchased four tickets for the Catamaran Afternoon Trip to Icacos Island on August 3rd specifically to enjoy snorkeling for our family trip. We made the purchase after reviewing details on their website. Per your website AND the confirmation email sent 7:01 AM the morning of the trip, we understood that there would be snorkel equipment, food (turkey sandwiches) and beach toys provided.

More importantly, it stated that all guests would be required to wear masks on the dock and on the boat, and temperature checks would be performed per Covid safety protocols.

We did not receive any snorkel equipment (not even fins), we did not have the use of “toys”, most guests were not wearing a mask on the dock or the boat, only one member of the crew wore a mask, there were no temperature checks and there were no sandwiches provided. Proper social distancing was not observed or even possible with the number of people on board given the size of the vessel's semi-enclosed seating area. The sailboat's sail was "broken" - definitely took away from the experience, but we know mechanical issues occur on boats, so not a big deal- but worth mentioning.

To top off the disappointing excursion, the crew's musical selection devolved to Cardi B's "WAP" and they proceeded to engage in "dirty dancing" with some of the intoxicated guests. With several children present, including my two daughters. The trip just wasn't described in any way as this type of tour.

We tried to reach out to Castillo via their posted email address and on their "contact us" form with absolutely no reply.

Dear Mr. Powell, On behalf of Castillo Tours and my Family, I extend our sincerest apologies for the bad experience you and your family endured onboard our Sail and Snorkel Afternoon Cruise. You came to us for an unforgettable experience and we didn’t deliver and for that, we are truly dismayed. At Castillo Tours, it’s our goal to make your day special and outstanding. I take full responsibility for our crew’s behavior as there was no marina supervisor on-site during that afternoon. We have been working non-stop for 17 months keeping a strict protocol for Covid and spend thousands of dollars purchasing PPE for our staff as well as our visitors. As a result, we are carrying another Covid training with our Crew to reassure that our protocol and SOP are followed. They know better, they have taken training and continued education on how to handle the operation during the pandemic so this is unacceptable. Everyone on board from our side is vaccinated and all guests must be either vaccinated or show proof of a 72hrs Negative PCR test to get on board. This doesn’t mean that the mask mandate in our most current Executive Order gets canceled. We will take matters and address this issue with the Captain who was supposed to be in charge of that trip and everyone’s safety. In regards to the type of music that was played on board, we always try to please our guests and accept requests to engage with them. As a family-owned business, we try to stir away from the booze cruise mentality which didn’t happen this time around. Clean lyrics are a must and we will address with them this matter that we take very seriously. The crew’s poor judgment is embarrassing enough and there is nothing I can say or do but acknowledge our responsibility as a business owners. Our afternoon charter doesn’t include sandwiches as our morning trip does. Our confirmation and note was very explicit with the tour inclusions. Snorkel equipment, as well as beach toys and snacks, are included. I still need to investigate why there was no equipment on board. I’m beyond frustrated with this and I will make sure to address this with the crew that was on the boat and the ones that had the day off. This should never happen, ever. I’m grateful that you brought this issue to my attention and I ask you for a second chance if you ever visit Puerto Rico again. We’d love to earn your business the second time around. I’ve issued a full refund as an apology. Should you decide to give us a second chance, we hope to see you again soon! Kind regards, Vanessa Castillo President and Owner

If I can give the zero stars I would. Customer service is AWFUL they are not looking for the enjoyment of their paying customers they are just money hungry. For some reason my reservation say Puerto del ray marina and that’s where I went, as I was parking they called saying the captain is about to board and We were like how, we are right here. She then ask me where was I, I then explained and Tina (which is who we spoke with) told me that I was at the wrong Mariana and I wouldn’t arrive in time. As soon Tina told us we made a huge turn and we were only 10 minutes away it was literally, 8:30am, she kept telling us that we are 25 minutes away and will not make it and she kept pushing us to just stay and not come. However, we were determine to make it. We were only just 7 minutes away when we called again to inform her we are close she then proceed to humiliate us which we was extremely rude. We kept trying to tell her that we are extremely close, if she doesn’t want us to come she needs to provide us with our money back because this was ridiculous, as we were RIGHT THERE. Horrible Horrible Horrible. She said that she cannot give me a refund because they would be losing money and that’s their priority. What a shame. Save your money and go somewhere else.

I am sorry, that you couldn't make the trip in time. The confirmation email gives the correct address at Villa Marina. We did not speak at 8:30 am, but at 8:47 am. That's when we started boarding and you were at the wrong Marina, too far to be there for the check in procedure and safety briefing . I tried to offer you another day, but you did not let me speak. That's why I send you a text offering to reschedule, which you did not take. At no time was I rude or disrespectful . I only told you that we can not refund for no show.

Had a great day! What a treat it was to visit Icacos and then to snorkel near such a beautiful reef. There is something magical being at the spot where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean Sea.
Check in was easy and it starts at 9:30 sharp. After a brief instruction we boarded the catamaran which was sparkling clean and cast off at 10. The snorkelling equipment is clean and in good condition.
We motored off to Icacos and stayed for about 2 hours. Some snorkelled while others stayed on the beach. Think Castaway.
When we reboarded there was a lovely lunch of meats , cheeses, salads, and bread.
Then off to deep water! One guide actually took a “ not so strong” swimmer out so they could snorkel with a safety buddy. The reef was beautiful. The current was strong and the swim required some effort. The staff was watching and checking on everyone though.
Then a sail back to Fajardo and the day was done. Arrived back around 3:30.
We had a great day which we’d like to repeat another day. It’d been difficult deciding what operator to go with since there are so many but now we’d feel very confident picking Castillo Tours. Thanks for a memorable day!

This is worth it. For the price, which there are pricier excursions like this, it's worth it. The crew was friendly, funny and checked in on us constantly. Making sure if we needed anything, while also getting to everyone else. The ride out to the island is beautiful. Perfect cerulean blue water. The water at the small island feels slightly chilly because it's early in the morning, but quickly becomes perfect. There's not a lot of diversity in the fish or color in the coral reef you can find nearby, but it's still a good snorkeling experience. We saw some very large fish, blue fish, yellow ones, a flatfish and even crabs (I'm not a fish expert). Your time there is definitely long enough that after swimming and snorkeling, theres even more time for sunbathing, dancing on the boat or eating. The lunch they pack isn't fancy (it's a brown paper bag lunch), but it is SOOO delicious after being in the water so long. The pasta in it was actually super good and I wish there was more of it. The drinks were endless, and the vibe was always relaxed and fun. With Covid-19 being a thing during this excursion, we couldn't actually go on the beach of the island, but that didn't take away from the trip at all. Because of the size of the boat, this would be great for large group because you could all have fun (party) together. It's family friendly depending on who else is on the boat. 100% would do this again my next visit out!

Thank you for the fabulous review, we very much appreciate your kind words . We look forward to welcome you back for us to create another memorable visit to Puerto Rico. Hopefully in the near future we will be able to go out at full capacity. But for now we will keep it to small groups due to our safety and health protocols

Such a great day. The entire team was so nice and accommodating. Eli and Marcos were really fun and kept the energy up for everyone on our tour, and even gave us more suggestions on what else to do on our trip.

Would 100% recommend this trip for anyone looking for a catamaran trip in PR.

Captain and crew were great. The sail out to Icacos was pleasant- no sea sickness here. The sail back was a bit slow, so they went under power the last bit.

Lunch was only so so, but then again COVID restrictions kept them from their regular sandwich bar. They kept the kids in snacks, fruit, sodas and virgin pina coladas the whole trip.

We really enjoyed the snorkeling off the beach at Icacos, but the snorkeling off the second island we sailed to was even better.

This was the highlight of our trip to Puerto Rico.

My friends and I had a great time! We sailed to Icacos, every single song they played was on point and the crew served us drinks. When we got to the island, one of them (I think his name was Dantonie) helped me and my friends get closer to shore. We stayed there for about an hour or 2 I think. I don't remember, I was taking advantage of the open bar and gettin lit. For lunch, they had rasta pasta, sandwiches, and chips. At the 2nd stop, we were able to snorkel and they had life jackets. Overall, it was a 10/10 experience. If you have questions just ask. They were really personable, cool, and there to help us have fun.
