What You Can Expect

San Juan Small-Group Sailing Cruise

Enjoy views of Old San Juan from the water

Kick back on a lounge chair, cocktail and fresh strawberry in hand, as you enjoy a scenic and historical 2-hour sailing cruise along the coastline of San Juan. Best of all, this small-group excursion is limited to just 6 passengers, ensuring you’ll have a memorable experience with personalized attention.

Start your tour by making your way to the departure point at San Juan Bay Marina, where you’ll board the Jeanneau Sloop, a 38-foot (12m) sailboat. First receive a historic and practical overview on the basics of sailing, and hear a safety briefing. 

Then set sail for adventure as your crew pulls into the San Antonio Canal, heading for San Juan Bay. Relax and make yourself at home as you sip on your choice of complimentary drink, (including wine, beer, sparkling wine, rum, Cava or a soft drink) fire up your choice of music and even take the helm of the ship for a great photo opportunity.

As you cruise the coast, make your way past the enormous San Felipe del Morro fortress and impressive La Fortaleza, residence of the Governor of Puerto Rico. Listen as the crew shares interesting historical insights into these two UNESCO World Heritage Site landmarks, and learn more about the nearby attractions, including the Punta de Tierra neighborhood, the Capitol House and San Juan harbor.

Continue your voyage with a second cocktail as you take in views of the distant El Yunque Rainforest and northern mountains, visible on the horizon. Make sure to keep watch for some of the area's amazing sea life like dolphins, turtles, sea birds and stingrays that inhabit the Puerto Rican coastline, or just chill out and enjoy the fresh ocean breeze. You’ll return to the marina around two hours after your departure.

Wonderful, smooth trip, beautiful views, spoiled by the 'crew' - expensive but really terrific. I would do it again. Oh, the marina is a little hard to find!

What a wonderful day we had spending time on a sail boat and hearing the history about Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Our Captain was fun and very knowledgeable. Judith gave us a chance to see some beautiful sights. Yes, the sights were incredible! What a way to take in the sights and history...

I loved the tour, it was such a relaxing and romantic feeling to sail in the sea away from the crowd. Our captain was very nice lady , she explained in such detail the history and even the present of Old San Juan. I know it sounds pricey but it was worth it.
