The captain and the guide were very nice and knowledgeable about the bay. They provided education about the mangroves and the animals that live in those waters as well as provided plenty of time to experience the bioluminescent bay from the boat.

Wonderful time in the water. We were able to see 5 or 6 turtles and a bunch of fish and crabs. Halie was a patient and very experienced teacher. She made the experience safe and fun even for the less confident swimmers.

This adventure made our mommy daughter trip! It was by far the best thing we did in Puerto Rico! Halie was amazing. She took her time teaching us the basics and lead us on adventure. The small group setting was exceptional.

Great experience with knowledgeable guides. We recommend the mermaids! We saw many turtles and all kinds of fish.

It's our pleasure introducing people to the marine world, and what a show it is. The little green sea turtles are endangered species, so we're so lucky to be able to see them up close and personal. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your experience with Adventure Mermaid. Halie R. AKA Adventure Mermaid #snorkelingpuertorico #adventuremermaid

Halie was the best instructor of anything I’ve ever experienced! She made my friends and I feel very comfortable, safe, and extremely happy with our experience. We left and said we would go back everyday if we could. 1000000/10, amazing experience. We loved being mermaids and I want to scuba sometime now!

Awwww, that's so awesome Olivia. I'm glad your friends and you had such a beautiful time with me. I definitely hope you decide to come back to Adventure Mermaid to do your first SCUBA with me. It would be a pleasure. Halie R. AKA Adventure Mermaid #snorkelingpuertorico #adventuremermaid

Two thumbs down for Halie

Working with Halie was extremely uncomfortable as she was aggressive and not willing to work with us on our booking. Coming from 30 minutes away and limited Ubers available, we sat in traffic for over an hour communicating with Halie about the predicament we were in. We arrived at 11:07 for an 11 AM excursion and were told there would be no other opportunity to go and no refund. Again, Halie specifically was aggressive and downright rude to us during a time when all we were looking for was help :(

Amazing experience with an even more amazing instructor!!!

On the initial booking they had me at "small woman owned business." Our mermaid and owner of the company is a naturally gifted instructor. For my first time snorkeling I feel I came out knowing some basics. She took us out in a small group and I received some good one on one instruction. And, yes I saw sea turtles among other amazing sea life!!! This is the tour, company and instructor for you.
