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.

Such a fun trip from start to finish! It was very organized. The weather was beautiful the entire day, and although the sun was rather wicked, the crew put the sail up so we were able to catch some shade. Icacos Island in Fajardo is beyond beautiful. The water is so clear. The lunch was okay, just sandwiches. The fruit they cut up was fresh and the presentation was so nice!

Fantastic trip! The boat is in excellent condition and the crew is very professional. There are two stops. The first is a beach/swim area and a picnic lunch. The reef is not so great at this stop but the beach is lovely. The second stop had great snorkel/lots of fish. There are several similar tours but Castillo is superior and we have taken this boat TWICE now.

The crew members were awesome - they were so much fun! The drinks were delicious and the water was great. They spent the day making sure everyone on board was having a great time snorkeling and hanging out on the catamaran.
