Full description
Spend a day in the sun on a 6-hour trip that takes you out on the clear waters of the Caribbean and along the Fajardo coastline aboard a catamaran.

Set sail in the morning from Puerto del Rey Marina, the largest and best-kept marina in the Caribbean. On board the catamaran's deck you will enjoy beautiful views of the mountains in the El Yunque National Forest, as well as the beaches along the Fajardo coastline.

After a comfortable sail of about 45 minutes, you will anchor at one of the small deserted islands and cays off the northeast coast of Puerto Rico. Normally it is the island of Icacos, but the captain will sometimes head to Palominito, Cayo Lobo, or Palominos if the conditions and snorkeling are better for the day.

Once you arrive, step off into shallow water and spend the next 2 hours walking on the beach, beachcombing, and swimming in the crystal clear waters. You may also opt to snorkel, and a crew member will assist you with instruction on how to use the gear.

Return on board for a buffet-style lunch full of all-you-can-eat fruits, fresh-baked breads, sliced deli meats, cheeses, tuna salad, gourmet pasta salad, coleslaw, chips, and cookies. Sodas, water, and juices are also available, and those with a taste for the sweeter things in life will want to sample the specialty piña coladas and tropical rum punch.

When you have eaten your fill, the boat will head a short distance out and anchor over the reef for another 1 or 2 hours of snorkeling. A leisurely sail back to Marina Puerto del Rey will bring you back to the dock at 15:30, with plenty of time to enjoy your afternoon and evening in Fajardo.

I can only recommend this tour! Of course there was a lot of people on the boat, maybe also too many. But the team did a great job, the food was okay and they drinks were delicious! The island Icacos was super pretty and the snorkling was amazing. (There was a couple of other Catamarans on the island too, so it wasn't a completely lonely island though...) All in all, I loved it and wish for everyone to get this experience!

Definitely do this! The crew on the boat was everything!! This was our first time Puerto Rico, and seeing the clear water and beautiful beaches was the highlight of the trip. When we come back I will definitely book with them again. The crew was fun, energetic, and takes their job seriously. Thank you!

Good afternoon on June 12, 2019, I was able to enjoy its facilities and the enjoyment of the Catamaran in Fajardo and it was very good. The food excellent and the service very good. But I felt uncomfortable and indigmatic in relation to when they were going to give the instructions, the passengers were separated by the Latinos on one side and the Americans on the other. I felt they committed discrimination with those who did not know English. I recommend that when you give the instructions first in English and then in Spanish and in that way you can not see the discrimination with Latinos because as Puerto Ricans we support ours and so it does not look ugly to be separated from people because they do not all Latinos knew English. Very grateful they are suggestion. Thank you
