Culebra Day Trip by Catamaran from Fajardo

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Let a high-speed catamaran zoom you to one of the 10 top beaches in the Caribbean! This day trip from Fajardo takes you across pristine waters to a beautiful beach – Flamenco or Culebrita (Little Snake) – situated just off Culebra Island, known for crystal clear waters and colorful reefs. On the way, your crew will make a snorkel stop, including a buffet lunch accompanied by piña coladas and rum punch. The remainder of the day is yours for sunbathing, swimming or beachcombing along miles of powdery white sand.
  • High-speed catamaran cruise to Culebra’s remote beaches for snorkeling
  • Buffet lunch of salads, meats, cheese, and fresh bread plus tropical drinks
  • Choosing a catamaran tour ensures a smoother ride
  • Convenient hotel pickup and drop-off available (select when booking)
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel or make your way to Fajardo’s Puerto del Rey to board a high-speed catamaran for the crossing to Culebra. Find a comfortable place to relax on deck during the cruise, sipping a drink from the bar as you enjoy great views of the Cordillera islands. The day’s first destination is a stop at either Carlos Rosario or the Luis Peña underwater nature preserve, where you can grab snorkeling equipment to check out a beautiful reef. After working up an appetite in the water, return to the boat for a buffet lunch that includes fresh fruit, pasta salad, seafood or chicken salad, coleslaw or bean salad, fresh bread, sliced meats, cheeses, chips, and cookies. From there, continue to a Culebra beach, either Flamenco or the beach on tiny Culebrita, with the afternoon to swim, snorkel, and sunbathe before returning to Fajardo.

The boat carries life jackets, but swim belts are provided (and recommended by the crew) that keep you up and make swimming effortless so you can focus on the snorkeling.
