First, we sail to the paradise Island of Icacos aboard the modern, 51 ft. sailing catamaran, SPREAD EAGLE II!
Departure: 10 a.m. from Villa Marina, Fajardo
Return: Approximately 3:30 p.m. to Villa Marina, Fajardo
SPREAD EAGLE II departs for a palm-fringed tropical island at 10 a.m. from ‘J’ Dock at Villa Marina in Fajardo, a 30-mile drive east from San Juan, Puerto Rico. Then, it’s about a one-hour catamaran sail to an offshore island and the reef. There’s something for everyone on our day sail adventure. Kids from two months old to 90 years old have enjoyed the trip as much as we’ve enjoyed having them. Once at the island, we lower a stairway into knee-deep water so you can get your gear to the beach safe and dry. Then you can swim, beach comb, splash in gin-clear water or stare back at the brilliantly colored tropical fish as you snorkel the reef, or just laze on the white sand beach or on board under the cockpit shade awning, the choice is yours.
The reefs are teeming with parrot fish, foureye butterfly fish, sergeant majors, and wrasse. The variety is too long to list, so you should just come see them all for yourself. Ask one of the crew to see the Fish, Coral, and Shell Identifying Charts on board. SPREAD EAGLE II even provides lunch for the fish. With a little patience, you can get the fish to eat bread right out of your hand.
As we leave the reef, remember that we have left the sights and sounds of the city at the dock. You’re welcome to bring your own iPod, MP3 player, or walkman because we guarantee no loud music. We offer the slow soothing sound of the Caribbean Sea and balmy breezes that fill our sails. This is a time to relax and unwind. We head back to the dock with sails belly full and trade winds on our tail.
Our premium ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT sandwich buffet lunch is the best in the business! We shop every day to get the freshest food possible. Build your own sandwich on ‘Pan de Agua,’ a local bread. Start with a choice of solid white tuna salad, premium meats, American and Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, and sliced bell pepper. Make it a meal with pickles, baby carrots, and even a deviled egg or two. You can also add some of our homemade pasta salad, some fresh, ripe tropical fruit like pineapple, bananas, papaya, and mango and some cookies for desert and you’ve got a great lunch, just the way you like it. We even have peanut butter and jelly for the kid in all of us.
Complimentary Bar! Our complimentary bar is always open. We include piña colada and tropical fruit punch (with or without rum) and premium sodas. Have as much as you like!
Mixed drinks and beer are available, but not included with excursion fee.
Remember, a good day snorkeling is measured not by how much you pay, but rather by whether you would do it again!
