Over Memorial Day weekend, five others and I had the opportunity to take a trip on PAPAYA. Upon meeting our host, she greeted us with a warm welcome and we connected with her energy right away. Her and her husband, the Captain, brought us to a small part of Culebra and Vieques where we got to enjoy our afternoon. It was great location for our group to settle in as we wanted something intimate and not crowed with other tourists. At some point they set up a nice snack charcuterie board with an amazing sauce and some grilled tacos that were included with our package. We enjoyed every bit of it. The ride experience was as any boat ride would be but the reason why I am writing this review is to speak on our amazing hosts. They really went above and beyond to make our group feel comfortable, safe and as if we have known them for ages. They were super hospitable, and their customer service went hand in hand. We left there feeling as though we had gained new family members. I truly wish you both well as a couple and business owners. You both are kindhearted people who truly love and enjoy what you do. We hope your business will continue growing and that many others get to experience you as hosts, not only on PAPAYA but on your future boats as well. Thank you for such an enjoyable experience. We hope to see you again some time in the future. Boston Group <3
Miguel was communicative from the start to the finish and very responsive to texts or phone calls. The vessel was as described, complete with a very clean and air-conditioned under deck. We went to Cayo Icacos, and had an amazing time there. The snacks and food provided were delicious, and Miguel even took photos and videos of our group with his drone for him to provide to us later. At the end of our trip, he took us by Palomino Island and showed us some amazing sand bars where the colors of the ocean are unreal. Miguel was very hospitable, and we always felt safe and very well taken care of. When we come back, we will definitely be booking with him again.
Nil was amazing! The boat was beautiful, the thoughtfulness she put into the trip was obvious. This was the highlight of my trip to PR, and would do this again if I could! From the easy communication to delicious food, beautiful water, and both friendliness and knowledge from Nil - this was an 11/10!
Had an amazing time on the boat. Was a short ride to the beautiful island where we were able to relax on the boat. Miguel provided floaties, snorkeling equipment, a snack early in the trip and burgers later on. The boat is very spacious and you have your own private room to rest and store your items. Miquel was extremely friendly, easy to communicate with, and was very flexible with what we wanted to do. We were able to drink on the front of boat and use the boat’s Bluetooth for music. To top it all off, he took photos with the phone as well as drone footage which was so cool. He knows the waters very well and I would definitely book again. An unforgettable experience!
We had such an amazing time. Booked totally last minute and were able to visit 2 islands. Icaco and Palomino. Enjoyed the beautiful clear blue waters and swimming, snorkeling, seeing turtles 🐢, sting rays, lots of crabs 🦀 and fishes. Will definitely be back to do more trips.
Great boat, this was the highlight of our weekend! Boat was large enough for a group of 11 women. Alex and Victor were a great Captain / First Mate team. They accommodated my pescatarian diet and grilled fish for me. They even caught fish as well! They were helpful while some girls went snorkeling and put out a large floating pad once we were near the beach which was so nice to lay on it. We felt well taken care of! Highly recommend booking with Ellen's boat! Great communicator, quick to respond.
