Overview
Book this package that makes it a breeze to cruise to Culebra from Fajardo for a day of snorkeling, swimming, and beach-hopping. It includes transportation from your hotel plus a buffet lunch and free-flowing tropical drinks. Grab a rum punch or piña colada from the bar on the high-speed catamaran, slip into the water to snorkel off Culebra’s coast, and then visit Flamenco or Culebrita Beach for a full day of relaxed exploring and a great introduction to Puerto Rico’s less developed side.
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 50-minute cruise, sipping a drink from the bar as you enjoy great views of the Cordillera islands.

The day’s first destination is a 1.5-hour 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.

100% WORTH IT!!! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED

The entire experience from start to finish was better than expected. From the pick up at the Intercontinental to snorkeling to the private beach gateways to the ever flowing open bar. The caption, Alex, is the man. Hope to travel again with him! Please enjoy.

I would give more stars if I could

You may want to call. I believe they told me when I called to book. Depending on where you are it will probably be around 7:30. I was in Condado and that was my pickup time. It’s about an hour ride after you get everyone... More
