Tour Information

Tour Details

Overview

This sea trek gives you the closest sensation to walking on the surface of the moon. With the help of a special helmet that provides air, sea trekkers are able to walk underneath the water with no swimming or SCUBA experience necessary. Anybody ages 8 and up can participate (all participants must weigh at least 80 pounds). Also, guests who wear contacts or glasses will have their heads and faces completely dry and be able to see everything clearly with no blurred vision, stinging or salt water in the eyes. 

This tour is conducted by local guides who are also sea trek professionals and is a very fun and safe way to explore the underwater universe.

Know More about this tour

Make your own way to the Caribe Hilton hotel in San Juan, where your instructor will be waiting for you on the hotel's private beach. After storing your personal belongings in the sea trek booth, listen as your guide talks you through the equipment and safety rules. This usually takes 15 to 20 minutes depending on how many questions participants have. The guides will do the best job they can to explain every single detail of the trip, including safety measures and hand signals.

Once you're ready, get suited up in your special sea trekking helmet and water shoes, and follow your guide into the water. The sea trek tour takes place within a shallow cove, perfect for beginners since it allows participants to slowly move from the shallow end to the deeper end of the cove. Enjoy around 30 minutes underwater, moving at your own pace, and look out for marine life such as sea urchins, starfish, octopus and squids, or, depending on the time of year, sea horses and marine slugs. Don't forget to pose for photos - they will be available to purchase at the end of the tour. 

Upon completing the tour, follow your guide back to the beach, where you'll have time to discuss your experience with your instructor, identify any marine life that you spotted on the fish charts, and choose to purchase photos of your experience. Bathrooms, changing rooms and shower rooms will be available to all guests after the tour is concluded. 

Please note: Parking is available inside the hotel and next to the hotel (Aqua Adventure does not validate or pay for customer parking). Restaurants are also available within and nearby the hotel which you can enjoy at your own leisure.

  • It was a great experience. Being a non swimmer I really enjoyed the underwater Sea Treak. My guide Loius was great and he made sure I was comfortable throughout the underwater activity. You get to see tons of fishes and some coral reefs.

  • They were understaffed so we took turn as a group of 4 instead of 8. The visibility in the water was kinda limited. It would have been better if this was in a different location.

  • This was amazing!!!!

  • We had the opportunity to take this great tour at the Condado Hilton. The guides were Luis and Juan, both very safety oriented and at the same time great motivators. The Underwater Sea Trek took 30 minutes and we were able to see a lot of underwater creatures of the reef. I would recommend it to anyone!

  • The tour was so much fun and getting up close to the fish was amazing. Our tour guide, Louis found all of the small sea creatures. My only wish was that we could get copies of our pictures at the end of the tour but it will take about a week for them to email them. Highly recommended!

  • This was so much fun and a great alternative to snorkeling or scuba diving if you have no experience in those areas. The fish come up to you right away and you get to feed them right out of your hands. My boyfriend and I were super lucky in that we got to go out by ourselves with our guide, Juan. Juan was very funny and super knowledgable about all the marine life in the water. He took really great pictures of us as well. Thanks for the fun time, Juan!

  • I really injoyed this underwater adventure and the guys made it special by letting us hold the sea creatures.

  • Little late in writing this review as we actually did it in May 17. Brilliant!! Great experience and we were so fortunate that it was only a party of 2 so we held everything!! Feeding so many fish was an amazing experience and the guide was lovely making the tour very special.

  • Stop by the Sea Trek stand at the beach area of the Caribe Hilton to meet your guides. If you can sign the waiver online, then do so to save yourself some time. Unless you have an underwater camera you will be leaving ALL items at the stand, in a closed box.

    The actual underwater trek will take place within the enclosed beach and you will walk underwater to about 15 feet depth you will not be getting onto a boat and riding off into the ocean. Our guide, Juan and Lewis, was funny yet informative and explained what was going to happen, so there were no surprises or accidents.

    The guides will provide water shoes like Crocs if needed.
    The connected hoses provide a continuous flow of oxygen to the helmets, so water does not enter due to pressure.
    You can only communicate via hand signals which the guides will review with you.
    We saw, handled, and fed some of the marine life, such as a crab, starfish, sea spider, and of course, fish.
    The trek lasts about 30 minutes - just as long as you need it to since while in a group there were 6 of us the guides will be attending to the other people and taking photos, so you will be standing there enjoying the scenery.

    Overall, it was a nice experience and I would highly recommend trying it out at least once.

    PS: You might be able to stay on the beach afterward, but the Hilton guests have wristbands, so you might be asked to leave at some point.

  • My wife and I had a great time sea treking. Our tour guides Alex and Juan were. awesome.My wife doesn and #39;t know how to swim and they made her very comfortable being in the water. While in the water we were able to see a lot of marine life. I would definitely recommend this activity to anyone visiting PR
