The Fun Cat departs the docks of Marina Puerto Chico at 10:00 AM and sets sail along the historical coastline of Fajardo, on route to Arrecifes de la Cordillera Nature Reserve. Music starts to set the mood for a great day, while the captain takes off with an interpretive talk about the different iconic landmarks along the way.
DIVE INTO PARADISE
After 45 minutes of sailing we arrive at the reef of Icacos Island, within the Arrecifes de la Cordillera Nature Reserve. Premium quality snorkeling gear is distributed, and the Fun Cat crew gives a complete, easy to follow, snorkeling training covering: use of equipment, safety, and etiquette. Then, off to the water we go!
Our guides lead the way to show our guests the best spots in the reef, and provide ecological interpretation of the ecosystems we are visiting. Here, you will encounter a gorgeous scenery of marine life! Starfish, schools of blue tangs, yellowtail snappers, sergeant majors, parrotfish, filefish, eagle rays, and occasional turtles are some of our most common encounters. The abundance of marine life at Icacos Reef is absolutely amazing!
On the boat, the snack bar is open along with complimentary refreshments and soft drinks.
LAND IN SIGHT!
Following the snorkeling session, the crew detaches from the mooring and the captain leads the Fun Cat to the stunning white-sand beach of Icacos Island. Our Sea Ladder provides easy access to its shallow, crystal clear water. Now, it’s time to eat, drink, and relax in this secluded tropical paradise!
The lunch buffet opens up with a hearty, fresh selection that will fully hit the spot, and tasty tropical drinks are on the house. You can indulge in our signature Guava Coladas, rum punch, and a variety of cool refreshments. The Fun Cat’s Chill Zone is set on the back of the boat with floating tubes, nice music, fun staff, and open sun decks for getting a flattering tan.
At this time, our guests can explore Icacos Island at will, or join one of our interpretive guide to discover its hidden natural treasures. You will enjoy plenty of time to explore, stroll, swim, sunbathe, and have fun as you wish.
HEADING BACK IN STYLE
At around 2:45 PM, it’s time to retrieve anchor and begin our leisurely sail back to Marina Puerto Chico. At this time friends have been made, the bar is still open, uncoordinated dancing may occur, and everybody is talking about what a blast they are having aboard the Fun Cat!
At the Fun Cat, we strictly ensure our guests’ safety. In rare occasions, the described order of the tour and the stops may vary due to weather conditions. Our staff will inform you if any changes are made to the plans. We guarantee that the Fun Cat crew will take you to the best locations according to the sea conditions of the day. Thanks!

As part of our service, your KPR guides will be taking complimentary digital photos of your experience with us in the water. We will upload all the photos taken by the staff to Google Photos and send you a link to the email you provided in your reservation. Please allow 5-7 business days for the pictures to be posted.

Optional round trip transportation is available for a flat rate of $18.00 per person (pp).
Pickup points include all hotels in San Juan, Carolina, Humacao, and the east coast area.
Pickups from the San Juan- Isla Verde area are scheduled one hour and a half (1.5 hrs) before the trip’s check-in time. For example, for a tour with a 9:30 AM check-in, the guest will expect to be picked up by 8:00 AM.
For pickups in the Rio Grande area, the guest must expect to be picked up 45 minutes before trip’s check-in time.
The private transportation rate is $126. If your party doesn’t reach the minimum requirement, this option may work for you.
The transportation service is scheduled directly with Kayaking Puerto Rico and provided by Fine Line Excursions.
Transportation service is subject to a minimum of 7 guests requesting transportation for the same trip. This doesn’t mean that you need to have all seven guests in your party; you can simply join other guests from other groups that also requested transportation.
However, in the event that the minimum is not met, we will call you one or two days prior to the excursion to go over alternative options (i.e. payment options for private transportation, car rentals, rescheduling for a different date or time that already has the minimum requirement for transportation, or cancellation without penalty).
We have a 48-hour cancellation policy for all of our excursions. Up until 48 hours before check-in time, you may change your reservation or cancel it for a full refund. Cancellations made in less than 48 hours before departure time, late arrivals, and “no shows” will maintain a full charge. All cancellations must be made directly with Fun Cat Catamaran, by telephone or email.
GROUPS OF 10 OR MORE GUESTS
Groups of 10 or more guests must cancel at least 2 weeks prior to the date of the excursion in order to receive a full refund. Cancellations of groups made in less than 2 weeks prior to the excursion date will maintain a full charge on any spaces we are unable to resell. Guests that are no-shows or late arrivals will receive full charge.
If we cancel a tour due to weather conditions, you will be provided a full refund. However, be aware that we are the ones that determine the cancellations due to weather conditions. Please, do not make the mistake of deciding not to attend because you think the weather might not be acceptable, as you will still be charged if the trip goes out. If you ever have a question about the weather conditions, please call us to confirm.
Due to the unique nature and small size of our groups, we are forced to remain firm about our cancellation policy. Consider that on the day of your excursion we will be there, onsite, waiting, and ready to serve you. Regardless of the cancellation reason, our time and fixed costs are already invested; we may even have turned down other customers by holding your space. Thank you for understanding!
