Mini Boat Tour

WELCOME ABOARD, CAPTAIN!

Your Island-Hop & Snorkel Mini Boat Tour begins at Puerto Chico Marina. Upon arrival, follow our signs until our check-in gazebo. At the gazebo, our guides will explain all you need to know. They will go over safety rules and the excursion route. When all our adventurers are ready, it’s time to board your Mini Boats! Our guides will cover boating basics before departure.

START YOUR ENGINES!

The fun begins as we clear Puerto Chico Marina. We will head north along the bluffs of the Las Cabezas Nature Reserve. As we cross the Fajardo Sound, El Yunque Rainforest raises in the background. The mangrove-lined coast frames Fajardo’s 130 years old Spanish lighthouse. This is the landscape that the Spanish conquerors first saw of Puerto Rico!

FIRST STOP: ICACOS ISLAND!*

You will ride your Mini Boat north following our convoy. Now, it’s time to enjoy your engine! Thirty minutes in, our first stop is Icacos. This deserted island is also known as Cayo Icacos or Icaco. Its white sand and turquoise water make it a true gem paradise!

Snacks and refreshments are available in your Mini Boat at all times. Go on and explore the island. Learn its history and chill at the beach. Then, get ready for a unique, guided snorkeling experience! Your snorkeling equipment is in your Mini Boat too.

HOPPING TO PALOMINITOS ISLAND*

After an hour in our first stop, it’s time to start your engines again! Our convoy continues the ride along the cays of La Cordillera Reserve. Next stop: the incredible Palominitos Island. Perhaps, you have seen this paradise before. It’s one of the sets of the movie Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides!

Relax on the white sands of this unique spot on the planet. Coral reefs and turquoise water surround it. Our guides are experts on the place! They will share all about it with you. Finally, they will take you on another great snorkeling session!

BACK TO HOME BASE

The group will board their Mini Boats again for the journey back to the marina. Enjoy your Mini Boat in the vastness of the Fajardo Sound. By this time, you may have become addicted to your Mini Boat!

*Note: KPR has a strict safety-first policy. Our guides will take you where weather conditions are best for the day. Therefore, in rare cases, the tour destinations may vary.  We will notify you if we need to make changes due to weather conditions. Our selection of stops is Icacos, Palominitos, Lobos, or Palominos.
