Marina Puerto Chico, Carr. 987 Km 2.4 Barrio Sardinera Fajardo, Puerto Rico 00738
The Innovation departs the docks of Marina Puerto Chico at 10:00am, cruising along the historical coastline of Fajardo, in direction to “Cayo Lobos”. Feel good music sets the pace of a great day, while guests listen to the captain interpret different iconic landmarks along the way. Thirty (30) minutes into our ride we arrive to the Reef at Lobos Cay, where preparation for some of the best guided snorkeling in Puerto Rico begins.
At the reef, gear is distributed and the Innovation crew will provide a complete, easy to follow, snorkeling instruction covering use of equipment, safety and etiquette. Then, off to the water we go! Your guides will lead the way to show you the best spots on the reef, explain the underwater ecosystem, provide safety, and guide your to discover the coolest marine life on the sea floor. 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 Lobos Reef is absolutely amazing! Back on the boat the snack bar is open along with complimentary refreshments and soft drinks.
Following the snorkeling session, the crew detaches from the mooring and the captain leads the boat to another Island at La Cordillera Reserve, the stunning white sand beach paradise of Icacos Cay.
The lunch buffet opens up with a hearty fresh selection, and tasty tropical drinks are on the house. Guests can explore the island of Icacos on their own, or join one of our crew members to continue exploring the natural wonderland.
At about 2:45pm it’s time to retrieve anchor and begin our leisurely cruise back to Marina Puerto Chico. At this time friends have been made, lots has been learned and everybody is talking about how much fun was had aboard Puerto Rico’s premier snorkeling vessel.
*Important Note: For your safety, described order of tour routes and stops may vary due to the weather. Our crew will take you to the best locations according to the sea conditions of the day.
All this beach exploration and snorkeling works up an appetite! Our crew lays out a hearty Deli-Style Buffet lunch that will hit the spot! Enjoy unlimited soft drinks, Rum Punches and Piña Coladas – ‘virgin’ or with Puerto Rican Rum!
