What You Can Expect

Culebra Day Trip by Catamaran from Fajardo

Culebra Day Trip

At 9:30am, depart for Culebra from Puerto del Rey in Fajardo aboard a speedy, wave-piercing power catamaran – Caribe Spirit, Island Flyer or Eco Isleño – and get ready to explore some of the most beautiful out-of-the-way spots in the Caribbean! Lounge comfortably on deck as the power cat takes you on a smooth ride in a fraction of the time. Enjoy piña coladas, rum punch, soda, juice or iced tea from the bar as you take in gorgeous views of the Cordillera Islands.

After an approximate 50-minute cruise, you’ll arrive at a beautiful reef – Carlos Rosario or the Luis Peña underwater nature preserve – located just off Culebra’s western shore, where your crew will anchor for 1.5 hours of snorkeling fun.

Around 11:30am, a delicious lunch buffet will be served, including: fresh fruit; gourmet pasta salad; seafood or chicken salad; coleslaw or bean salad; freshly baked bread; sliced meats (turkey, ham, and pastrami or salami); sliced cheese; lettuce, tomatoes and pickles; chips; and cookies.

Then it’s just 20 minutes to a deserted Culebra beach off the beaten path, where you’ll spend the rest of the afternoon swimming, snorkeling, beachcombing or sunbathing. (Underwater cameras and sunscreen are available for purchase on board.) Your captain will decide which beach is best, depending on weather conditions that day – most likely stunning Flamenco or a half-mile long beach on Culebrita, a tiny islet of the east coast of Culebra with outstanding views of St Thomas.

Around 3pm, depart Culebra, cruising along the Marine Cordillera en route to Fajardo and arriving back at Marina Puerto Del Rey at 3:45 pm.

My best friend and I had many highlights on our trip to Puerto Rico, but this excursion set the tone! It was an incredible experience and I felt like it was worth every penny. The driver that came to pick us up in Fajardo, Jose, was friendly and knowledgeable. The beginning of the trip was a bit rocky for me, literally. We were pushing against the current and it felt very much like a 40 min. roller coaster ride and I hate roller coasters. I've been on many boats before, but never a smaller, fast craft and I felt quite greenish. Fortunately, Dramamine saved the day and one of the crew members, Levi checked in on me to make sure that I was ok, which I highly appreciated. Once we arrived, I realized it was all worth it. The view and the water were spectacular! My friend went snorkeling and I took photos from the boat. From the snorkel spot, we went on to Flamenco Beach. Due to new restrictions implemented this year (probably becaue it was rated the 2nd most beautiful beach in the world), only the state-run ferries can dock on Culebra, so the boat docked a few yards away, and we swam safely with our swim belts and fins to shore though it was shallow and the waves were gentle. We had food throughout the trip from breakfast pastries to a lunch spread and a fruit-filled afternoon snack prepared by Sorren. It was all delicious and I am a picky eater. The trip back was smooth sailing, which was great because we were all full and fatigued, but in the best of ways. I would suggest booking this trip to anyone planning to travel to Puerto Rico and I would gladly take it again!
