Set Sail on our Culebra Tours
Beat the crowds to Culebra Island on our new, custom 36-foot Newton power boat, where you can enjoy a less crowded, more comfortable environment compared to other operators in our area that carry 40-80 passengers. Our new vessel is U.S. Coast Guard certified to carry up to 26 passengers maximum.
Come and enjoy the gem island of Culebra, where snorkeling and beach exploration are unlike anywhere else in the world. We first visit one of Culebra’s beautiful reefs and moor for about an hour and a half over a living coral reef. Here, you have the opportunity to snorkel over the reef and view numerous tropical fish, sea turtles, and live coral formations.
Depending on weather and sea conditions our captain may take you to Luis Peña, Carlos Rosario, Melones or Punta Soldado. We then move on to our beach stop. Our usual destination is the world-famous Flamenco Beach (rated among the world’s top 10 beaches).
Occasionally, due to sea conditions and your safety, we may choose Playa Tortuga on Culebrita Cay or another beautiful beach that’s best to enjoy for the rest of the afternoon. Guests can swim, walk along the white sand beach, or just relax and sunbathe at their own leisure.
- Food: Deli-style buffet lunch, cold cut turkey, ham, salami, beef pastrami, swiss & cheddar cheese, gourmet tuna, chicken & pasta salads, fresh fruit & vegetable trays, fresh local bread, and chips
- Drinks: Unlimited water, soda, fruit juice & tropical rum beverages served during & after lunch
- Gear: Quality snorkeling gear & flotation devices
- This snorkeling beach trip travels by high-speed boat in open waters and is not appropriate for pregnant women, those with recent surgeries, back injuries, and children under six
- For your safety, destinations are at the captain’s discretion and may change depending on weather and sea conditions. If the crossing to Culebra is not appropriate, we head to better protected alternate reefs, beaches, and cays which include Diablos, Lobos, Icacos, Tortugas, Palomino, and/or Palominitos within the Spanish Virgin Islands. These alternative sites are comparable to the beach and reefs in Culebra

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.

- What to Bring
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.
