Spend the Day Sailing, Snorkeling & Relaxing on the Beach
Beat the crowds to Icacos Island aboard our 32-foot sailing catamaran, Getaway, where you enjoy a more comfortable, less crowded environment compared to other operators in our area that carry 40-80 passengers. Our vessel is U.S. Coast Guard certified to carry up to 26 passengers.
Come and enjoy the Cordillera Cays Nature Reserve with us, which includes Icacos, Lobos, Palominos and Palominitos islands. We first visit the beach for about two hours. Our usual destination is Icacos Island, where the catamaran stops so you can disembark and find yourself in knee-deep crystal clear waters. Guests can swim or practice snorkeling from the shore, walk the white sand beach, or just relax and sunbathe at their leisure.
We then move onto our second stop where the vessel moors for about one and a half hours over a living coral reef. Here, you have the opportunity to snorkel over the reef and view spectacular tropical fish and live coral formations for unforgettable Puerto Rico snorkeling. Depending on water conditions, our captain may take you to Tortugas Reef, Lobos Reef, Punta Aguila or Palominitos Reef.

Where is Villa Marina Yacht Harbor located?
Villa Marina Yacht Harbor is located at Sardinera beach in the municipality of Fajardo, on Puerto Rico’s northeastern coast. Our ‘Getaway” Catamaran is waiting for you at Dock M-21. The trip by car from metro San Juan can take from 45 minutes to an hour depending on traffic conditions.
- 14 days prior to date of trip there will be no penalty and you will receive a full refund
- 13 days or less to date of trip: There will be a fee of 50% of your booking
We reserve the right to cancel a public sail if a minimum number of reservations are not received. Customers will be given a full refund in case of operator cancellation due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
All marine activities are subject to water conditions. Please call a day prior for an update on cancellations or change of destination due to water conditions as per the captain’s discretion. These decisions can be announced at check-in.
If we cancel a tour due to weather or sea conditions, you will not be charged. You will have the option to reschedule for the next available space. Our captains will make the final decision as to weather conditions. Remember, a few passing rain showers are normal in the tropics and rain is more likely in the center of the island and to the west. We monitor weather reports constantly, and especially the conditions on the east coast. Fajardo weather can differ greatly from the weather in San Juan or wherever you are located.
Please don’t make the mistake of deciding not to come if it’s raining where you are, as you will be charged if the trip goes out. If you have any questions about the weather conditions, please call us to be sure.
The most important thing to bring is a great attitude and a fun spirit. We also highly recommend beach towels, sunglasses, camera to capture the fun, and any snacks you may want onboard. We recommend that you wear a bathing suit under light clothing and bring dry clothes for the ride home. We also provide all Snorkeling equipment including Mask, Snorkel, Fins and flotation devices. (all gear is cleaned and sterilized before every trip )
We would like remind our guests that these environmentally-sensitive areas, while protected, are still exposed to many threats. In an effort to conserve and protect them we encourage you to use long sleeve performance shirts or “rash guards” as well as ball caps or hats for sun protection rather than sunblock. Read why here.
