    Stop: 2 hours
    You don’t need a boat to go snorkeling, just take a kayak on over to Isla Capitan!  If you don't have experience, he will give you a short 20 minute lesson on how to use your kayak, and then you'll set off directly from the beach for a 30-40 minute paddle over to Captain Island.  You will snorkel around for a while, with great opportunities to see a variety of fish, stingrays, octupus, and coral.  After 45 minutes of snorkeling and viewing the bay from the island, you will paddle back and enjoy a snack. You may ride in single or double kayaks, please let us know your preference after booking. Departure time depends on the tide. What to Bring: Bathing Suit, Sunscreen, towel Includes: water, snacks, bilingual guide, snorkeling equipment and instruction Duration: 2.5 hours

My cousins and I had such a fun experience snorkeling at Captains island with our tour guide Joshua. He is fun, funny, and knowledgeable about the area. We saw a lot of different types, colors, and sizes of fish, as well as some other sea creatures which we got to interact with. We were well taken care of. The kayak trip to the island was also amazing- fun to kayak in the ocean versus other bodies of water. I highly recommend if you want to snorkel and potentially see a lot of wildlife.

We just kayaked to the small island offshore for snorkeling. Our guide Ronaldo taught us many things about the area and pointed out things we would have missed otherwise.
Only 4 stars because the snorkeling there wasn’t great - choppy waters with cross-currents and not a ton of fish or reef or anything like that. But I grew up with world-class snorkeling so maybe I’m biased.
I actually got out of the water and explored the island’s tide pools, looking at the millions of hermit crabs and different sea birds and that was more fun for me.
The staff at the office and beach were very friendly and put our backpack in a locker and even loaned us a dry bag so we could take our phone and binoculars out to the island safely.

Rinaldo was our guide to this great snorkeling experience at Captain's Island. We kayaked out. It was fairly easy to get there. We have been snorkeling in Key West, Aruba and Maui, but saw fish here that we had not seen in any of those places. Rinaldo took time to prepare our goggles so that the viewing was crystal clear. We had plenty of underwater time to view the sealife. Really enjoyed it!

Very poor experience! Rude tour guide and very below average excursion. Not worth the money at all.
Yes, this tour was bad enough that I took notes on my phone through the trip sadly :( I wouldn't normally call out
