Icacos Island (Cayo Icacos)

Cayo Icacos , Fajardo, Puerto Rico, 00738

The Basics

A white sand beach rings a forested grove at the center of the tiny island, where waves and wind are almost the only sounds. Offshore, schools of colorful tropical fish inhabit a system of coral reefs. Snorkeling cruises to Cayo Icacos are a popular option for mainland visitors, and boat tours typically leave from Fajardo or even San Juan. Motor boat and catamaran cruises allow you to swim from the safety of the ship’s deck, explore the colorful reef below, and go ashore to stroll along the beach and visit the green center of the island. It’s also possible to visit Icacos as part of an island-hopping tour.

The whole crew was very accommodating and friendly, anytime you needed something, they were right there. The catamaran was clean and they had safety protocols they implemented for covid. Unlimited pina colada and rum punch, sooo good!! The water at Icacos Island was amazing, crystal clear and refreshing to jump in to after sitting in the sun! Would highly recommend to anyone looking to have a good time!

What a great trip. Hectmar is so friendly and truly enjoys her role. She goes out of her way to keep everyone happy, drinks refilled, and playing DJ. Solimar is a wonderful guide and filled with knowledge about the tour. Capt. Danty is cool and super chill and does a good job navigating to the best spots.

Icacos Boat Trip and Beach Day Package.
The captain and staff were friendly, helpful and provided the best customer service anyone can ask for. The boat trip was great because there were only three of us with the captain and two other staff members. We were the first one to get there, so we had the island to ourselves for a little while. They provided drinks, umbrellas and snorkeling equipment. You can't ask for a better company than this company. I strongly recommend it and I will definitely call them again.
