Quick Guide to The Catamaran Tour (San Juan, PR)

Getting Lit on a Catamaran + Snorkeling

What better way to enjoy your vacation than getting lit on a catamaran, snorkeling in the North Atlantic Ocean, and Island hopping.

We booked the Culebra Island Snorkeling Adventure Tour through our hotel 2 days prior and paid a small deposit of $27. A credit card is needed to hold your reservation but no charges will be made. Pick up time was 7:30am. Once you arrive to the boat docks, you pay the remainder of the fees and pick up your fins. They also had a gift shop if you wanted to buy towels, waterproof cameras, etc.

This trip includes: transportation to and from your hotel, lunch, drinks (yes, alcohol), snorkeling at Culebra, and relaxing at Flamenco Beach.

Cost: $125

ETA from hotel to boat docks: 1.5 – 2 hours

ETA from docks to Culebra: 45 minutes

Lunch: deli sandwiches, pasta salad, pastries, fresh fruit, and cookies

Drinks: water, fresh juice, mix drinks (with or without rum) are free while beer is available for sale. Alcohol is served once you arrive to Culebra. They strongly advise you to wait until after snorkeling to start drinking – Just imagine being drunk trying to swim with fins and a snorkel. Not cute!   

Restrooms: 2 are available on the catamara. Do not flush any toilet paper! My advice, do your #2 before or after the tour.


I’m usually fearless when it comes to adventurous activities. However, I think my adrenaline got the best of me because I couldn’t stay under for nothing! It was so hard breathing out of the snorkel. The fins were hard for Tasha to use but luckily they had waist floaties available on board.

After 5-10 minutes in the water, the boat crew started repeatedly telling everyone to get back on the boat. What? That’s it?

Little did I know, someone was drowning right beside us. I have never witnessed someone so close to death. The man was pale and quickly turned blue. After giving him CPR, the crew members were able to get him to a stable condition. We rushed to the nearest island where an ambulance was available and waiting for him. Whew!

Next stop was Flamenco Beach!

Once we got to Flamenco Beach, everyone had the opportunity of swimming a short distance to land or staying on/around the boat.

We still got to use the snorkels and jump off the side of the boat. Lunch is served in a buffet style which allows you to put on any topping you like. 

Everything is unlimited *eyes the bottle of rum* 🙂 Ask for the “Captain Special”. I guarantee you’ll be feeling it after 2 drinks. 😛

They played a variety of music from bachata, reggaeton, reggae , or anything of your choosing.

This is your best guide to exploring the beautiful Puerto Rico and its surrounding beaches, Fajardo and Culebra. Please be generous and tip the crew members, they were AWESOME and made sure we had a great time – They give you a little shout out by ringing the bell… or just do it yourself like certain drunk people *cough cough*.

Snorkeling and swimming with the fishes would have to be the highlight of the trip for me. You get a sense of pure happiness just floating freely in the ocean. Without a doubt I would do it again – definitely worth the money.

P.S – The fishes are harmless but they might nibble on you.


What to Bring:

  • Towel
  • Change of clothes
  • GoPro/waterproof camera (if you have one)
  • Water shoes – if you don’t want to get your good pair of shoes wet on board.
  • Ziplock bag – for your phone
  • Waterproof bag – although you get to leave your bag(s) on board, it will still end up getting a little wet.
  • Sunscreen – lots and lots of sunscreen! The sun is no joke out there.

      Hey Kel!

      I thought the same thing – SO WORTH IT! This was one of my favorite catamaran tours (and in DR). I was sad about what happened after the hurricane. It’s such a beautiful island.
