From San Juan, relax on a catamaran cruise to the deserted paradise of Icacos for a taste of island life, with miles of white-sand beaches and crystal clear waters to enjoy. Spend the day simply sunbathing, or stroll around the island, search for shells, swim or snorkel — there’s plenty of colorful marine life to see underwater at the living coral reef. The catamaran crew will serve you lunch with included pina coladas or rum punch, while you enjoy expansive views of the turquoise sea — what more could you ask for?

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.

If you do only one tour while in Puerto Rico this should be the one. Everyone was having fun including the crew. Awesome day!

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.

The best excursion we have been on! Our family of 5 had a blast! The crew was very organized and friendly and they were upbeat and serving us drinks the whole time. The snorkeling was fun however there were to many boats in one area so too many snorkelers in the water at the same time so it seemed a little crowded. The lunch was very good and the boat was in great condition! Would highly recommend!

This trip was beautiful! Even with a little rain, they let us get the full experience. The crew was everything, I really appreciated their enthusiasm and hospitality.
