Sail away with your captain for the next 4 to 5 hours and enjoy the sunset on the water. With your captain's knowledge and 'safety first' mentality, you will explore some of the islands off the coast of Puerto Rico on this day sail departing from San Juan. Sail to either Palomino Island or Icacos, depending on the wind, situated right off the coast of Puerto Rico. You can choose to snorkel where you may spot turtles, dolphins, tropical fish, coral formations, stingrays, sea-urchins, starfish and more or choose to enjoy a swim or the sun. Hotel pickup and drop-off and a BBQ lunch are included.
You will be picked up from your hotel around noon and transferred to the pier. Then, set sail to either Palomino Island or Icacos (depending on winds) right of the coast of Puerto Rico. When you choose to snorkel (equipment for use on board), be ready to observe sea life such as turtles, dolphins, all types of tropical fish, coral formations, stingrays, sea-urchins, starfish and more. On this unforgettable trip, you may want to learn a little bit about sailing. If so, just ask your captain and he will be happy to answer your questions and show you.
You can choose which island you want to go to, however, if the group is divided on where to go, the captain will choose the island which is favored by the direction and conditions of the wind. Palominos Island is a private island owned by the Fuertes family, though half of it is rented out to the Conquistador Hotel. The island has a little bar and facilities to rent jet skis and kayaks too if you wish. Icaco Island is a national reserve!
You will also enjoy a BBQ-style lunch on board (vegetarian option available on request). At around 7pm after sailing, you will return to the pier to meet your vehicle then transfer back to your hotel or accommodation.
