Snorkeling at the Rincon Marina

While many tourists snorkel at Steps Beach, enjoying the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve, you won’t want to miss out on the Rincon Marina during your time in our surf town. Not only does the marina have a great swim beach and great waters for paddle boarding, it’s also a great place to snorkel.

Recently, Chikako, Rachel and a few of their friends took the morning off to snorkel at the marina and to photograph the beautiful coral, fish and of course, for a little fun too. As you can see from their photos, it is a majestic place to explore!

As with any snorkeling adventure, be sure to have the proper gear, snorkel with another person and go when the conditions are optimal and the waves aren’t dangerous. Next time you stop by the marina take the opportunity to check out the beautiful sea life – you just might discover a sea turtle, manatee and other exciting animals.

When you request a paddle board delivery, be sure to ask us about our snorkel gear rentals.

Gilligan’s Island

For my birthday this year, Damiano and I, with a few friends, visited Guanica to check out Gilligan’s Island and what an awesome adventure it turned out to be!

Gilligan’s Island is very beautiful, a great place to swim, snorkel and even paddle! (More on that later). It’s a very small island about a mile off the coast of Guanica and a favorite spot for locals and tourists alike! The island is managed by Puerto Rico’s Department of Natural Resources and is part of the Biosphere Reserve of Guanica.

The area is largely covered by mangroves and some corral so it’s a great place to snorkel as the water is crystal clear. Be sure to bring a cooler for water, lunch and snacks and lots of bug spray!  There are picnic pavilions, BBQ pits, restrooms and changing areas but no shops or restaurants so come prepared.

To get here you can rent kayaks, take the ferry, hire someone to take you over or even paddle as the waters are pretty calm! Stay tuned on our Facebook page and blog as we are considering the idea of offering paddle board tours to this beautiful little paradise.
