San Juan Snorkel and Picnic Cruise

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Relax and unwind on a leisurely catamaran sail to Icacos, a deserted island paradise off the coast of San Juan, with miles of white sand beaches and crystal clear water! Here you can search the island, collect shells, sunbathe, wade or swim offshore and view the underwater wonders of a living coral reef. Your picnic lunch and complimentary pina colada is served on board by the crew - what more could you ask for!
  • Spend the day snorkeling and sunbathing during this San Juan cruise
  • A guide can give you snorkeling tips at Icacos Island, if you’re a beginner 
  • Travel light—snorkeling equipment, lunch, and tripical drinks are included
  • Upgrade to add hotel pickup and drop-off for your convenience 
What to Expect
This San Juan cruise starts at Villa Marina in Fajardo. If you’ve chosen to upgrade to add hotel pickup and drop-off, your day starts with pickup from your San Juan hotel. Otherwise, make your own way to the marina. Once you board your catamaran for the day, set off on an adventure on the water. First, sail to Icacos Island. On the island, you can stroll the beach, sunbathe, relax, or go snorkeling. If you're new to snorkeling, the guide will give you some tips to help get you started. After your free time here, head back to your boat for lunch. Enjoy a sandwich lunch with salad, fruit, and snacks. The meal is accompanied by tropical drinks, including rum punch and piña coladas. Next, head to a secluded coral reef for more snorkeling time. If you’re not into snorkeling, you can just relax and take in the stunning sights that surround you. Your San Juan cruise ends back at the marina. If you’ve upgraded, you’ll be dropped back off at your hotel.
