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.

The crew was great! The hostess was the hostess with the mostest! All were very set on ensuring that we had a good time. We were picked up at our hotel and escort to the port where the boat docked. We boarded and the rest of the day was fantastic!!! Snorkeling at some excellent spots with live reefs and plenty of fish to play with. A great lunch and drinks, with or without rum, were made fresh for our group. Our hostess sat with us and chatted for a good long time as others were playing in the water. She was easy and friendly and we had a great chat. The captain made up a fruit platter for the cruise back to the dock that was truly a work of art. Everyone of the crew was helpful and very friendly. As experienced snorkelers we found the second reef a wonderful place to explore and dive. I can't say enough about the crew. We felt completely safe at all times and wonderfully pampered! Thank you Jelexia!!!

The crew was amazing. Everyone was so sweet and helpful. To the point that when I was scared to jump into the dark blue ocean, One of the men removed his glasses, watch, and shirt, held my hand and jumped with me. The served a delicious lunch, played great music including the captain singing and great drinks. I would definitely use this group again. They were great. Oh and the boat was spotless and amazing too.
