We had a wonderful time with Captain Bill. That day was awesome and unforgetable. Great food, great fishing, great snorkeling. Thank you Captain for making my birthday amazing. Captain Bill along with his ship-mate Gigi gave us a wonderful experience exploring Culebrita. We will see you when we go back to Culebra next year. If you visit this beautiful island, please dont miss this adventure with Captain Bill . You will enjoy it to the max!!

Captain Bill along with his ship-mates Gigi and Lala gave us a wonderful experience exploring Culebrita. We thought Flamenco was great, but Tortuga beach certainly surpassed it. We did some snorkeling in the tidal pools, as well as around Culebra island (tamarindo/melones beaches), tried to catch some fish and Captain Bill prepared us a truly wonderful grouper with vegetables and rice. Wonderful sunset highlighted the end of the trip. When we got back the power on the island was out and we needed to catch a taxi back to our place. Captain Bill went extra mile trying to arrange our return. When his golf-cart started to give-up on five adults and two dogs :) he asked his buddies to give us a ride to town. The whole day was amazing, thanks to Captain and his shipmates :)

We are long time visitors to Culebra, our family has a house out by Mosquito Bay. I have never gone out on the water with Captain Bill, but I can tell you this: amazing, stand-up citizen...that is who you'd be with. Story: last year we were hanging with our 3 kids at Bahia Marina swim up bar. Captain Bill comes along for a beer and we chat, fun guy on his break after a long day. We go to our jeep, tire is flat. Short story: Captain Bill spent the next 2 hours ferrying us back and forth to town, buying us tire inflator, and generally making sure we were ok, for no reason than because he's an awesome guy who cares about people. We were all blown away by his generosity. So, naturally, when we're back this year we're doing the Capt. Bill trip and can't wait. Thank you Captain Bill, you rock!

We went sailing with Captain Bill on January 9th and it was an amazing experience. I had wanted to visit Culebrita for over a year and was very excited as the date drew near. However high winds and rough seas conspired against me. Captain Bill suggested we avoid going north to Culebrita due to the rough seas and instead suggested heading to Cayo Luis Pena, which is towards the southwest of Culebra. At first I was a bit disappointed, but that feeling disappeared almost as soon as we started sailing. During the sail to Luis Pena, we caught a nice size fish (yellow tail, I believe), which was pretty exciting. Captain Bill took us to a nice, secluded beach for some great snorkeling (1 of 2 snorkeling stops). We literally had the beach all to ourselves the whole time. We even knocked some coconuts down and Captain Bill opened them for us to drink/mix. While we snorkeled, he prepared snacks/lunch, which made it great since we could recharge energy right away. And btw, people aren't kidding about the quality of his cooking. Great food throughout! I highly recommend sailing with Pez Vela.
