San Juan Snorkel and Picnic Cruise
The tour takes you on a relaxing sail by catamaran to the uninhabited island of Icacos. Spend the morning exploring the island, collecting shells or swimming offshore in the crystal-clear Caribbean Sea. If you're a novice, you can receive professional instruction in the art of snorkeling.
After you've worked up an appetite, enjoy a scrumptious picnic lunch freshly prepared onboard by the crew, accompanied by pina coladas and rum punch.
After lunch, you'll anchor over a breathtaking coral reef, home to colorful tropical fish and underwater wonders.
Then, after a full day at sea, it's time to hoist the sail for the return trip to San Juan, completing a truly different day in paradise!

The staff was amazing and overall it was the best day of our vacation. If you tend to get sea sick though, remember to bring some medicine! Great experience! ( don't forget the sunscreen)

I have taken many catamaran tours in the Caribbean and this is by far the best yet. The staff was awesome - Frances, Luis, Tito and the Capitain. The area they took us was so pretty that we all just loved playing in the water around the boat and jumping off the boat and just hanging with the other guests. The lunch they served was our best meal in Puerto Rico and the staff was so nice about the presentation of the meal. Most of these cruises are over crowded and you get treated like children - NOT this one! We can't wait to go back and do it again and it will definitely be with the local tour operator.
