CHARTERED ADVENTURE SNORKEL (FAJARDO)
Snorkel, Cruise and Explore uninhabited islands and reefs in the Caribbean on a chartered boat tour. Cruise to the pristine island of Palominito and swim in the turquoise waters that have made the Caribbean a world renowned vacation hot spot. This tour includes lunch, snacks, refreshments, rum or champagne. The boat is equipped with professional snorkeling gear, beach chairs and umbrellas.
Tour departs twice daily: Morning Tour - 8:30am-1pm
Sunset Tour - 1:30pm-6:30pm Private Charters
Your first stop is just a 15 minute cruise from Marina Puerto Chico where you depart from and is the coveted location where Johnny Depp filmed a scene in Pirates of the Caribbean.
From Lobos, you will take a 10 minute cruise to the island of Icacos and snorkel a breathtaking coral reef and its brilliant tropical fish. These islands are a perfect place to find Leatherback sea turtles, who travel across the world to lay their eggs on Puerto Rico's untouched beaches.
For the expert snorkelers, ask your captain to take you to the 100 foot wall or the stingray habitat of Lobos. You may also choose to put your shoes on and take an adventure and explore the windward side of Icacos island with its many lagoons and dramatic rocky shores.
Cruising back to the marina, keep your eyes on the wake of the boat, because this is a dolphin's favorite place to play. Just when you think your adventure may be over, stepping off the boat at the marina you might also be lucky enough to find the Caribbean's most gentle giants, the Manatee.
