Kayaking Puerto Rico is a young, innovative Puerto Rican adventure company specializing in recreational and environmentally oriented kayaking snorkeling excursions off the eastern coast of Puerto Rico. KPR is directed by certified tour guides and nature enthusiasts; Percy Rier and Dalberto Arce. They both have a combined experience of over 16 years in the industry of eco-tourism and have independent studies in business administration, marine biology and environmental sciences.
Percy and Dalberto spent over 3 years exploring Snorkeling and Kayaking venues all over Puerto Rico before traveling with clients. Soon it was obvious…the “Las Cabezas de San Juan Nature Reserved, where Seven Seas Bay is located on the secluded Northeast corner of the Island, (with protected, snorkeling grounds teeming with marine life and ringed by one of the most breathtakingly stunning trio of beaches on the Island) was to be where the KPR partners would launch their fledgling eco excursions business. Additionally, at this very special part of Puerto Rico, is found the Bio-luminescent “Laguna Grande”. In 2007, KPR began offering kayaking excursions to this phenomenal site, becoming their most popular excursion!
In their quest for showcasing the pinnacle of Puerto Rican kayaking and snorkeling, the company inaugurated in 2009, “Aquafari Culebra” a fascinating Kayaking and Snorkeling excursion that allows guests to explore one of the most vibrant and life filled underwater nature reserves in the Caribbean, thus re-confirming KPR’s slogan…”The Best Kayaking And Snorkeling, Period!”.
Not resting on their laurels, Percy and Dalberto took a great step on 2010, with the take off of their biggest project yet. Mini Boat Adventures! The only adventure of its kind in Puerto Rico where you will have the opportunity to captain your own 40 Horse Power inflatable MINI BOAT in an excursion across the uninhabited cays and white sand beaches of Puerto Rico’s eastern coast! Visit www.miniboatadventures.com for more information about our New Island Hop and Snorkel Mini Boat Adventure!

Click here and find out Why we are the Best Kayaking and Snorkeling operator in Puerto Rico!
From the outset, Percy and Dalberto, knew that their adventuresome visitors would enjoy the natural beauty of the protected reserves of the East Coast; but they wanted their excursions to showcase additional qualities of what Puerto Rico, its friendly people and heritage, have to offer. “People who come on our excursions will find themselves dancing on the beach, or body painting ancient Taino inspired symbols on each other, and before the trip is over, many new friends have been made”, says Dalberto, “in addition to the unparalleled snorkeling and kayaking experience, we want to leave our visitors with a new appreciation and understanding of Puerto Rican culture and traditions”.
Kayaking Puerto Rico strives to give back to our surroundings both socially and environmentally. Our organization respects and understands the importance of our natural resources; therefore, ensuring their protection is one of our primary commitments. We put great effort towards the conservation of our environment and contribute to the education of preserving the wellbeing of our natural wonderland here on the East Coast of Puerto Rico.

Awards & Recognitions
PUERTO RICO TOURISM COMPANY AWARDS KAYAKING PUERTO RICO IT’S QUALITY AWARD
KPR wins the 2008 Quality and Excellence Award in the category of Tour Operators.
Safety
Kayaking Puerto Rico counts with a team of well-trained, professional tour guides; ALL CPR and First Aid certified. Our tour guides will always provide you with detailed safety instructions prior to any activity.
Before snorkeling, the first thing our Instructors/Guides do with any participant is to administer a “swim test”. This “test” merely demonstrates your comfort level in the water. If a participant appears uncomfortable at all, Instructor/Guides will pay special attention to you while in the water. Non-swimming participants are provided with extra buoyancy and extra supervision. KPR Staff specializes in encouraging unsure swimmers, through patience and care, to become reasonably confident snorkelers. After your “swim test”, participants are shown the proper technique for fitting their snorkel gear.
While on the water, KPR staff will direct you through safe routes and will keep an eye on you for any unforseen dangers in the water. They will also carry with them all necessary safety equipment, such as: First Aid Kits, whistles, extra PFD’s (Personal Flotation Device), Binoculars, VHF Radio and Cell Phones; allowing you to feel safe and relaxed while enjoying of one the best days of your vacation.
Even those who aren’t gifted swimmers can still come along and have a great time. All of our guests are provided with U.S coast guard approved life jackets. Some guests may choose to leave their lifejackets on while snorkeling, thus eliminating the issue of swimming.
We have a wide variety of fins and masks in stock to fit all snorkelers. The buddy system is used in all of our snorkeling excursions. A novice or apprehensive snorkeler is usually paired with a more experienced buddy or with a Guide/Instructor. Our Guides are all “Lifeguard Certified” and most also have years of experience in the water, with boats and people in aquatic situations.
Ocean kayaks are a safe and fun way to travel. To make your adventure with us complete, before we head out we will spend a few minutes reviewing deep water kayak entry and exit as well as reviewing kayak and snorkeling etiquette. Our lead kayak is equipped with first aid supplies, GPS, spares and communications gear on all of our adventures.

On these rare occasions our tour guides will select the route that they believe will be the most fun and enjoyable for the whole group. Some days a given trip may do an additional stop beyond what is advertised, at the same time, that trip may do one less stop than what is advertised.

  • Our Sea World

Culebra Island
Without a doubt Culebra Island is our most impressive Snorkeling / Kayak Excursion! The Island boasts the clearest waters, pristine beaches and a variety of sea life that will amaze!
Culebra is one of a group of islands off the eastern coast of Puerto Rico, known as the Spanish Virgin Islands. The Island’s beaches, including our launch site Tamarindo Bay, are among the most beautiful in the world.
Culebra is an archipelago consisting of the main island and twenty-three smaller islands that lie off its coast. One of the largest of these cays, “Cayo Luis Peña” is a Nature Reserve, and it’s in these waters that you will experience world class snorkeling in crystal clear waters abundant with amazing sea life, not seen anywhere else in Puerto Rico. Water visibility on a typical day can exceed 100 feet and more!
During a typical Culebra snorkeling session you might spot a Sea Turtle gliding through stunning coral gardens, or come across a fabulous school of fish. Rays, lobsters, a mind-boggling array of fish species and Turtles…did we mention turtles? It’s a rare day when our snorkeling guests don’t see turtles!
Our Culebra Aquafari, unquestionably will provide the most diverse and spectacular underwater experiences for the adventuresome visitors to Puerto Rico!
Bioluminescent “Laguna Grande” (Great Lagoon)
Imagine the blackness of the sea on a moonless night. Now watch it sparkle with the darting lights of a million fireflies. Nature lovers will not want to miss the phenomenal experience of visiting a tropical Bioluminescent Lagoon! Located in the town of Fajardo, in the heart of Las Cabezas de San Juan Nature Reserve, this peaceful lagoon locally known as Fajardo’s “Bio Bay”, is one of Puerto Rico’s greatest natural treasures!
The bioluminescence is generated by zillions of microscopic organisms in the water known as Pyrodinium Bahamense. It is believed to be part of a natural defense system triggered by the movement of predators. Many scientists believe the tiny organisms light up so their predators such as crustaceans and other baitfish are exposed to the sight of bigger fish – thus leaving them alone.
The phenomenon occurs sporadically in warm seas around the world, but Puerto Rico is one of the only places on the planet where the bioluminescent display is dependable all year round! Click here for details of KPR’s Puerto Rico Bio Bay tours and excursions.
Seven Seas Bay…A Nature Lover’s Paradise!
Unquestionably one of the most beautiful and ecologically diverse bays in Puerto Rico. Las Cabezas Bay also known as Seven Seas Bay is located in between two of the most valuable natural reserves in Puerto Rico. Las Cabezas bay is known for its calm emerald clear waters protected by a long coral reef (1 mile in length) that serves as a wave breaker 800 meters offshore. The average ocean temperature is 81ºF.
The calm relaxing waters of the bay are ideal for kayaking all year round and the coral reefs in the center provides us with many spectacular snorkeling destinations ideal for all skill levels.
Marine Life
When snorkeling in Culebra, you are likely to find tropical flora and fauna that easily eclipse the most beautiful aquarium you have ever seen. Swim amoung tame sea life, marvel at the variety of coral formations, spot sea horses, unusual arrow crabs, colorful parrot fish, and octopus, among the endless schools of blue tangs and other colorful reef fish.
Bird Watching
A destination for migratory birds as well as the home for endangered species, Las Cabezas de San Juan Nature Reserve is an ideal location to observe dozens of remarkable birds in their native habitat. With its unique Caribbean location, Puerto Rico has drawn on the biologic diversity of North, South and Central America.
Great Heron in the mangroves
Puerto Rico’s extensive coastline and small offshore islands make ideal roosts for pelagic birds. There are a total of 349 species of birds on the Island. Among the Sea Birds diving for fish, you’ll see Pelicans, Osprey, Comorants and Frigate Birds. The two large lagoons in each Natural Reserve bracketing Seven Seas host hundreds of marine bird nesting colonies.
Within the island’s forests, birders can hope to see the delightful little Tody (locally called ‘San Pedrito’), the unique Puerto Rican Lizard Eating Cuckoo and the endangered Puerto Rican Parrot (of which only 40 remain alive in a few hidden areas of El Yunque rain forest).
Fajardo Light House
The Fajardo Lighthouse, located within the reserve, is one of many lighthouses built by the Spanish in the 19th century around the perimeter of Puerto Rico. This one is a jewel, both for its setting and the care with which it was restored a few years ago by the Conservation Trust.
In addition to visiting the small nature center on the lower level of the Fajardo Lighthouse, be sure to climb the antique iron staircase to the observation deck. The view of the 316-acre preserve with El Yunque towering behind it is extraordinary. Even more breathtaking is the seeming endless expanse of sea, dotted with islets and far off islands.
The Fajardo Lighthouse is usually open to the public Friday through Sunday. Reservations are required (787) 722-5882 or (787) 860-2560 on weekends.
