Boat Tours at AQUA

Our boat tours are done on small crafts owned and operated by a local professional tour

company. As the vessel is a light craft, you may get a bit wet so please bring a towel and

quick dry clothing or a bathing suit. We also recommend that you bring sunglasses, sunblock,

and a small snack. Water is provided on most boat tours.

Boat tours depart from AQUA’s beach. Please make your way down to the beachfront 10-

15 minutes before your scheduled tour time. Your boat captain will pull his craft to shore

and assist you with boarding.

Ocean swells may get a bit choppy at times due to wind and other changing weather conditions.

Your boat is equipped to handle these swells and must meet safety requirementshang

on and enjoy the ride! If the swells are to great for the boat to dock in Redonda Bay,

your tour may need to depart from Playa Gigante or be rescheduled. Please always check

with the reception to confirm the status of your pick-up in the early afternoon of your

scheduled tour date.

Captain Zack speaks good English and is always eager to answer questions. However, some

of our other boat guides may have more limited English skills, so please come with a flexible

spirit and be prepared to try out some of your newly acquired Spanish phrases!
