Icacos is now a popular destination for snorkeling and beach combing, it provides great coral reefs formations and excellent white sand beaches. The clarity of the water and sandbars attracts boats from mainland Puerto Rico and neighboring islands. This all started back in 1971 with The Innovation, pioneered for nautical tourism in the area. Now the Innovation stands as the Classic and most respected vessel in northeast Puerto Rico. We have back it up with a top notch local crew to provide the most authentic snorkeling experience possible at Icacos Island.

WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY

Cassie S

The staff was very friendly. The experience was enjoyable for the whole family. They worked with the children on board to help teach them about sailing and snorkeling.

Ron L

We have done many snorkeling tour in various places, this tour tops our list. Most “sailing” tours only go to the snorkeling site with the engine running. This tour sailed to and from the beach. We snorkeled at two places and had a two-hour stay on a great beach. Lunch was great and we had plenty to enjoy.
I highly recommend Fun Cat Catamaran if you are in Puerto Rico.

MLHoner

We have had a great trip to Puerto Rico and by far, the best thing we’ve done is spent a day on the Fun Cat Catamaran with Capt. Jim and his crew. They were all outstanding!!! The ship was beautiful. The equipment was top notch. The lunch buffet, snacks, and drinks were all delicious. The Pina Coladas were awesome!!! And all of the places we stopped were amazing. Do this tour – you will not be sorry!!!
