TRULY A GREEN COMPANY
Nowadays it’s fashionable to paint yourself green and call yourself an Eco-minded business. Most of these companies are just following trends.
RESTORATION PROGRAMS (coral farms)
Pure Adventure is founded, owned and operated by Marine Biologists. No one can better appreciate the environmental impact that nature excursions can have on delicate, tropical eco-systems than Yolanda, Carlos and Javier. As Marine Biologists they know and understand the constant battle of marine sea life and flora to survive in today’s world.
There’s a reason why they are Marine Biologists – it’s very simple…they are children of nature. They share a deep appreciation and respect for their Island’s natural treasures. They have created their eco-excursion company, Pure Adventure mindful of the care needed in order to share their tropical paradise with adventurous visitors.
The word “Eco” is short for ecology, i.e. the science of studying the earth and the environment…it’s what Marine Biologists do.

Pure Adventure is always protecting the environment, everywhere we go. Whether it be a scheduled excursion with guests or when we’re diving and kayaking for fun with friends, we always bring special bags (not plastic!) and pick up trash when we find it. Additionally, we coordinate and help sponsor beach clean-ups in conjunction with the Puerto Rico Department of Natural Resources and members of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
SEA LIFE PROTECTION

We are constantly vigilant and on the lookout for manmade hazards to sea life:
Fishing lines and nets Fishnets (along with other debris) can cause suffocation of different marine species. When we find lost fishing gear, we remove and dispose of it on land.
Healty Staghorn coral
Pure Adventure has participated with the Coral Reef Alliance, an international organization working exclusively to unite communities to protect our planet’s coral reefs. Recently the Pure Adventure crew joined SAM (Sociedad Ambiente Marino) with local scientists, university teachers and students in creating a Staghorn Coral farm. The Staghorn (Acropora cervicornis), is an important coral providing shelter and refuge to numerous fish and crustaceans.
