Live out your island castaway fantasies aboard a luxury catamaran as you visit the deserted tropical island of Cayo Icacos from San Juan on this half-day sailing cruise. Sail into the aquamarine waters of the Caribbean, admiring views of the El Yunque mountains in the distance, before arriving at the nature preserve of Icacos for a leisurely day of swimming, snorkeling and a lunch buffet with drinks. Your sailing excursion also includes snorkel equipment and an optional upgrade with round-trip transportation from hotels in San Juan.
  • Luxury catamaran cruise to Cayo Icacos from Fajardo
  • Ride to the small and quiet island of Icacos, part of La Cordillera Keys Nature Reserve
  • Snorkel in a reef area, swim in clear blue waters and relax on the beach
  • Capture beautiful views of El Yunque National Forest and Fajardo’s coastline
  • Enjoy a delicious lunch buffet and drinks on board
  • Upgrade to include round-trip hotel transport from San Juan
You may be just a few miles from civilization, but this half-day catamaran cruise to Icacos Cay feels like your very own tropical adventure. Explore the untouched beaches of this nature preserve while you spend the day swimming and snorkeling, before enjoying a buffet lunch and cocktails.
Start your day with an optional pickup from hotels in San Juan, or make your own way to the marina in Fajardo. As your catamaran pulls up anchor and heads into the cerulean seas, check out great views of the coastline’s beaches, plus scenic vistas of nearby El Yunque National Forest. Don’t forget to enjoy a piña colada, rum punch, soda or juice from the bar on the way.
Your catamaran arrives at Icacos Cay, part of a chain of 10 small islands that comprise La Cordillera Keys Nature Reserve. If weather conditions require, your captain may navigate instead to the equally stunning island of Palominitos. Then hop in the water for some aquatic activities, including snorkeling on the nearby reef, swimming or beach combing on the shore of this placid paradise.
When you start to get hungry around midday, head back to the boat for a buffet spread. Build a sandwich from the included array of fresh baked bread (pan de agua), sliced meats including turkey, ham, pastrami and salami, sliced cheeses, lettuce, tomatoes and pickles. Make sure to also grab some sides, including gourmet pasta salad, chicken salad, coleslaw, bean dip, chips, cookies and fresh fruit.
Following lunch, your catamaran heads to another reef for more snorkeling or sunbathing. While underwater, keep your eyes peeled for reef creatures including colorful fish and the occasional octopus or manta ray. Or stay dry on the deck, where you can gaze at the sea life through glass windows or shoot down the boat’s built-in waterslide.
Your relaxing sailing day finishes with a return cruise back to harbor, where you can find your optional hotel transportation back to San Juan.

The company that runs the boat and the tour is called East Island Excursions. They did a wonderful job at keeping everyone entertained, involved, supplied and in the right direction from start to finish of the trip. It’s a beautiful day of sailing, snorkeling and just relaxing on a wonderfully kept boat with an awesome crew. The bartender keeps the drinks coming and lunch is served around 11am, and it’s just a great great time. I’d recommend this to anybody and everybody.

This was easily our best experience in Puerto Rico. Bring tons of sunblock and sit strategically so you don't get all wet while riding on the boat.

I really enjoyed snorkeling over the coral reefs and walking on the beach and I loved the water slide. My favorite part, however, was the cute and funny bartenders that were very social and accommodating.

Extremely well organized and managed. Captain Wilo and first mate Christian made sure we all had a wonderful experience. Beautiful weather and the gorgeous waters of Puerto Rico made the trip well worth it. Delicious food and drinks, time to explore the deserted beaches of a local cay, and snorkeling about the marine coral and colorful fish couldn't have been better! There are still may scars from hurricane Maria, but the island is rebounding and more than ready for the tourism to return. We had a wonderful time!

I had an amazing time on the cruise. I can't swim, but they had great equipment which allowed me to jump in the ocean and swim with the fishes. The food was tasty. Although the alcohol beverages wasn't that great. I loved the captain and hostess personality they made the trip Definitely booking agai

I've been on better snorkeling tours for less. The boat was too small for 80 people to be on with hardly enough space to move around on. The food was not that great. I would look into other boats that much bigger and offer better food options.
