Culebra Day Trip by Catamaran from Fajardo

Culebra Day Trip

Experience a true tropical paradise on this high-speed catamaran adventure to one of the most secluded and unspoiled spots in the Caribbean. This Culebra tour is the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation, offering snorkeling among the area’s amazing reefs, good food and drinks and a laid-back afternoon sunbathing and swimming on some of the world’s most pristine beaches.

Start your day trip with optional pickup from select hotels in San Juan, and head for your 9:30am catamaran cruise leaving from Puerto del Rey ferry terminal in Fajardo. Soak up the sun on the short 50-minute ride on your speedy vessel, refreshment already in hand, and take in the amazing views of the nearby Cordillera Islands Nature Reserve along the way.

The first stop of the day takes you to the pristine Carlos Rosario or Luis Peña underwater nature reserve, just off the western shore of Culebra, for 1.5 hours of fantastic snorkeling among the area’s beautiful aquatic environment.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, lunch is served around 11:30am, featuring a delicious buffet spread including tropical cocktails, soda, juice, iced tea, fresh fruit, gourmet pasta salad, coleslaw or bean salad, freshly baked bread, sliced meats (turkey, ham, pastrami or salami), seafood or chicken salad, sliced cheese, chips and cookies.

From there, take a short 20-minute sail to one of Culebra’s unspoiled beaches for an afternoon of sunbathing, swimming and beach combing. Depending on weather conditions, your captain will take you to one of two choices: the stunning Flamenco Beach, situated on Culebra’s main island, or the half-mile long beach at Culebrita, a small islet that offers beautiful views of nearby Saint Thomas.

Finish your day around 3pm with a return cruise to Fajardo, arriving back at the marina around 3:45pm to make your own way home or via optional hotel transport.

We had a beautiful day and the whole tour was fantastic from start to finish. The crew was very helpful and fun. We felt very well cared for throughout the day. Snorkeling was wonderful and Flamenco Beach was absolutely stunning! Highly recommend this tour

Totally LOVED this trip! The company called me the day before to inform us that they might not be able to make it to the Flemenco Beach because of rough water so I was a little worried, especially not knowing how big the catamaran was. But they assured us that they would get us to a beach. Well, it didn't matter as the whole day was wonderful. We were picked up at our hotel and driven to Fajardo. This was great as we didn't have to worry about where to go. Upon arriving we were immediately greeted by the most wonderful crew! We cruised out to Culerbra and they found a place to go snorkeling. The snorkeling wasn't the greatest maybe because of the weather? but we still enjoyed. Then they served us lunch and wait, did I mention the non-stop drinks? So much fun! The best part for us was the beach they took us to. We didn't get to Flemenco but instead, Culebrita which was beautiful! Thanks to all the crew for a wonderful day!

The beaches were beautiful, staff was great, but I got so motion sick, that I was unable to really enjoy it. But I will try again in the future. I give it a 10, my husband enjoy it.

So glad I saved this for the last day I was there It was the perfect way to end the vacation the crew was awesome very nice and made the day fun. Snorkeling was great even though I cant swim that great they have vests there where quite a few jelly fish to look out but I had no issues the beach was beautiful I see why its rated the worlds second most beautiful beach in the world. The food was ok but what would u would expect being on a boat for hours plus best not to eat to heavy while swimming and drinking.

Highly recommended! Warm and great turquoise waters. It takes 1 hour from San Juan center to reach the departure port in Fajardo where you'll pay 3 USD tax/person. The catamaran is really fast. First arrival point is a coral bay for snorkeling. Then the lunch is served light but abundant inside the boat and finally you'll be taken to Flamenco beach. Note that the boat will not come ashore, but will drop anchor close-by and you'll need to swim to the beach where you can take a walk to see the famous symbolic tanks of an era.

Even though the taxi was 25 minutes late from the quoted pick up time of 7:30 a.m., the rest of the trip was phenomenonal! The crew were great at explaining the details of the tour, safety tips and fun facts. The captain was great. Efrain was the best! He convinced me to go snorkeling, though I hadn't planned to do so. He found out it was my birthday and made it even more special by being very attentive and helpful. It didn't hurt that he was easy on the eyes. Great time!
