Before I went to Puerto Rico, I knew I wanted to do a boat day. This was the first group trip I’ve done since Turks & Caicos and the boat day we did on that trip was a blast, so it was at the top of my agenda. There were so many choices, from the different companies to private vs public, catamaran vs powerboat, and so much more. We went with Snorkel and Beach Tour because of their availability and clean, professional website. They also have phenomenal Tripadvisor reviews, so we knew we were in good hands!
One of their tour options is a powerboat to Culebra. We all knew we wanted to go to Culebra, so we chose that option. Sadly, the night before our reservation, they had to cancel the tour due to it not filling up. We were so sad! But instead of canceling altogether, we opted to switch to the catamaran tour to Icacos. An added perk is that we didn’t have to be there until an hour later than the powerboat tour, yay sleep!
I’ll be honest, I was a little bummed that our original tour got canceled. But once we got out on the boat, I knew it was for the best. The catamaran was awesome and so incredibly relaxing. It was my first time ever on a catamaran and I loved it! The boat ride wasn’t fast or bumpy at all. We got to sit out front and feel the breeze as we sailed to Icacos.
For our boat day, I wore my cute little denim romper dress I got on super sale. It just felt nautical and perfect for the occasion. For my swimsuit, I went with my flattering high-waisted banana leaf suit. I love the muted navy and light pink combo!
Once we got to Icacos, we were able to get off, swim, snorkel, chill at the beach, whatever! After about an hour, lunch (and rum punch!) was served. The sandwiches were actually really good and the rum punch was perfection. We hung out, drank, danced, and took more photos for about another hour before heading out to a reef for some snorkeling. I chose not to snorkel – I just wanted to be in the sun! Overall, it was such an amazing time and I absolutely recommend the Traveler Catamaran Sailing Tour!
Usually I prefer private tours since I have to shoot content, but this one was actually awesome. We ended up meeting some cool girls from New Jersey and it was a fun carefree atmosphere. There was also plenty of time to take photos, as you can clearly see in this post! We also got some awesome drone footage!
Have you ever gone sailing on a catamaran?
