What You Can Expect

San Juan Snorkel and Picnic Cruise

San Juan Snorkel and Picnic Cruise

Whether you’re a beach bum in search of that perfect stretch of sand, or a snorkel lover looking for the perfect reef adventure, this Puerto Rico snorkeling excursion is sure to delight. Indulge yourself with a fun catamaran cruise to serene Icacos island for a day of swimming, underwater exploration and relaxation.

Make your own way or add an optional hotel transfer from San Juan to the catamaran’s departure point, leaving around 10am from Fajardo. From there, the catamaran proceeds east for around 20 to 45 minutes to the idyllic island of Icacos. Once anchored, spend the rest of your morning on the island as you wish, strolling the beach, exploring the interior, searching for shells, swimming or snorkeling in the aquamarine waters just offshore. If you’re new to snorkeling, receive help from one of the tour’s experienced guides.

Head back to the catamaran for a midday lunch break. Lunch consists of ham, turkey, salami, cheese and fresh local bread for sandwiches, plus salad, fruit, snacks and your choice of rum punch or piña colada cocktails. 

Spend the second half of the day with more snorkeling, as the boat moves to a second secluded coral reef. Check out more of the reserve’s amazing sea creatures, or simply relax on deck before returning to the dock in Fajardo around 4:30pm and for an optional hotel drop-off.

I was very happy with my time on this boat trip. I had gotten sick on-board and the crew took excellent care of me. I was able to make it to the side of the boat before the excellent lunch they made came back up. They never made me feel embarrassed about it and gave me an ice pack to help me feel better. The snorkeling portion was so much fun and I enjoyed the blueness of the water.

Was a great day and experience. Excellent service on the boat. Only a bit long wait before we got off the pier was frustrating at first. Despite of it I highly recommend and would do this again myself.

This tour was the highlight of our trip! I am in the service industry and am always impressed when a team that does the same thing EVERY DAY can make their guests feel like this is the FIRST TIME and the most exciting day of work they've ever had. The crew was truly amazing- fun,attentive and professional. The bus transport and driver were so nice and the trip from Condondo was quicker than I thought it would be. You reach the first stop within 45 mins where you can practice your snorkeling and walk around on the beach and have your lunch- which was really delicious and more to abundant than I expected. Second stop is close by. There are other boat tours near by- you are not alone at these locations- but that is part of the fun jovial vibe. Also the beverages are flowing nonstop! I honestly think these guys could get away with charging 150 per person and it would still be worth it. What a great time- don't miss this experience!

I went to Puerto Rico by myself and felt very welcomed on this tour by the crew fellow attendees. The snorkeling was amazing and paired with all-you-can-drink ie. pina coladas!, lunch, and fruit for dessert. Weather was perfect and not too hot. Water was also warm. The fish aren't scared of people and you can even feed them. Saw several harmless jellyfish but no turtles boats are supposedly too loud. I saw a little bit of trash on the beach, please always be respectful of the natural environments and pick up after yourself.
