Guide was very knowledgeable about different ecosystem and different types of fish and gave through training, as none of us had snorkled before
Amazing snorkel experience

Highly recommend this tour for beginners. We practiced in shallow water first and once we got comfortable we followed our guide around to look for sea turtles and fishes. Our Adrian was patient and attentive to everyone as well knowledgeable about the under water ecosystem.

Instructor Adrian uses her degree in marine sciences to educate our snorkelers about the fish and turtles that we see. She's compassionate, has patience, and just the right amount of Alabama charm to make your experience a lot of fun. Thank you for the shout out for Adrian.

So amazing!
, Sep 2021
This was our first time snorkeling... We got Libby and Amilcar as instructors... they were great and made us feel really comfortable. Amilcar took my husband, myself and another couple that were more adventurous out to deeper water while Libby stayed back with others still getting comfortable. So it is great for any level of snorkeler. We saw lots of fish and turtles! I would recommend this to everyone! They also gave us great tips for places to eat and things to do in Puerto Rico!
First time snorkeling

Libby was awesome! We had a wonderful time trying something new. She helped put our minds at ease and explained everything. I don't know how to swim but moved in the water like a fish.
Amazing site and instructor
, Sep 2021
Me and a group of young ladies had a great experience for spring break 2021 ! Beautiful site ! Savanna was very knowledgeable and qualified. We felt safe and got to explore a large area of water . She also offered photos and videos

My daughters and I loved the snorkeling. Haley, our guide was great. She went over all the safety measures so that we could feel comfortable and confident in the water. We were able to see different fish and got pretty close to turtles. Haley took lots of under water photos of us and the group. We had a lot of fun. It was a great experience and would definitely recommend Adventure Mermaid to everyone.
Wonderful Time

Savannah was amazing . Me and my family had a wonderful time. I definitely recommend this experience to others.
Unhappy 🙁
, Aug 2021
The directions took us to a park, and after speaking to an employee who told us we were in the right place and paying for parking, we missed the time slot. We then was told it was our fault not the website’s directions. Still waiting on the refund.

Hi, Hannah. As I said to your daughter, I have issued a full refund. We are truly sorry for your frustrations yesterday, and appreciate you letting us know where you got the wrong address. Unfortunately, we do not know where you got the bad address from. Thank you for allowing us to correct the mistake. Halie R.
Loved Adventure Mermaid!
, Aug 2021
Loved snorkeling with Libbie at Adventure Mermaid!! Went with my cousin and there were 6 in our group. I had been snorkeling before but it had been many years. Libbie gave us a great introduction --what to look for, how to use the equipment, etc. She was also great at pointing out fish while we were in the water. She did a fantastic job taking Go Pro photos and videos of our group and the marine life we saw. She then uploaded them to Google Drive so we could view them later. Highly recommend!
