What We See?, Where Do We Go?

Do you want to have a Private Sailing Tour just for you, nobody else but your guests on board? And you want us to take care of every little detail of this memorable day for your party?

We custom design this tour for sailing Old San Juan with your desires in mind... This charter is our alternative to those looking for privacy and special catered services. The tour could be design for a couple, or for a group of up to six guests.

You will enjoy the Harbor during the three hours this tour lasts. And you will have plenty of time to relax, to propose, to share, to laugh, to swim across from 500 Years Old World Heritage Sites!!... Let this tour be your perfect and unforgettable time in Puerto Rico.

Sail Old San Juan Harbor while discovering its magic for people who cares about people...  You will be embraced by the soft breeze and the colors of the most important Landmarks of our Historical City.

The City will turn from brightness, to yellows, to oranges, to pinks, to darks with lights, while your dreams fly away with your important people...  You will be enjoying music in the background, a glass of Champagne in your hands, delicious Hors D'Oeuvres, while enlightening your souls...  Do you want to keep dreaming?  Join Us in this limited, relaxing, unique, exclusive, or even romantic tour!

Sail enjoying the best views of the Historical Landmarks like La Fortaleza Castle, the City Walls and El Morro Fortress among many other unique spots.

Your cruise is designed for you to relax and take in the sights of beautiful San Juan and its protected Bay. Of course, if any of you may want to take the helm and feel like a Captain for a day, we welcome it, but it is not required!

We will take off on this "dreamed journey", from the San Antonio Canal.  This perfect tour starts with a visual introduction and historical and cultural review of the San Juan Bay Area and the stories of enchanting Old San Juan.  We will share while getting ready on a comfortable seat, with the drinks of your choices in hand... 

Many believe the best way to check out Old San Juan is from the water and there isn't a better time to enjoy it your visit to Puerto Rico. Choose Daytime, Afternoon, Sunset, or Nighttime to have an amazing experience with your guests.

From a local Fishing Village, passing by the Cruise Ship Piers Waterfront, the Historical Capitol Building, La Fortaleza Castle, Bacardi's Rum Distillery, to El Morro Fortress, you will be able to soak in the beauty of life, along the charming feeling of Puerto Rico and its people.

This tour is the favorite one for Couples in Love, for Marriage Proposals, for Birthdays, for Anniversaries, for Pre-Post or Cruise Ship Passengers, for Families, for Corporate Meetings, for Incentives, or for people with limited time in the City. If you can dream about, it can become a reality. Join us on this unique VIP Private Chater Sailing Tour of Old San Juan.

PS.  Your Happy Captain says from now on, Welcome Aboard! ;)

Does Nature Ever Surprises Us?

Nature is a Blessing in our Tours! We are constanly enjoying some wildlife through the different areas we sail through the Harbor. It doesn't matter if it is Daytime, Sunset, or Nighttime, chances are good to enjoy some of these species. Don't be surprise if we spot:

Dolphins: There is a community of Bottlenose dolphins playing throughout the southern and mid section of the Bay, close to el Morro Fort and the Coast Guard headquarters. We have seen up to ten at once!

Sea Turtles: The most common specie to enjoy is the Hawksbill Sea Turtle. We see juvenile ones once in a while, swimming close to the San Juan Gate and La Fortaleza Castle, usually in the morning time.

Manatees: Our endangered marine mammals can be found either close to our Marina, or close to the Coast Guard headquarters. We usually see them during the daytime, but also at nighttime.

Sting Rays: If you see or hear a sudden big splash of water, for sure it was an Atlantic Stingray. Only if stepped on, the Atlantic stingray can inflict a painful, though rarely life-threatening wound. Otherwise you don't have to worry about their presence around!

Sea Birds: There are Seagulls (like our favorite dreamer Jonathan Livingston Seagull), male and female Brown Boobies resting on the buoys, Brown Pelicans and Frigate Birds in their traditional acrobatic rituals, always diving for fresh and delicious food!

Our main sailboat is Poema de Amor Libertad (A Poem of Love and Freedom...)

Poema is a beautifully decorated, USCG Inspected, 2006 refurbished, French 38.2' Sloop Jeanneau Sunshine Sailboat.

Poema is a comfortable, roomy sailboat, with a Cockpit Cushioned Area, that has an ample Bimini Top to stay dry when it rains. For those of you that may want to sit in the Front Deck Area, we have available Reclining Deck Seats, to protect your backs and necks.

We have AP System. There is a Head, a Galley and a beautiful Saloon with Comfortable Seats, where you can rest part of the tour, in case it starts heavy raining while we are sailing out there.

If your group wants to swim (available only during the daytime departures), we have available different Floating Devices as well. And we love tropical flowers, that's why it is so common to enjoy a natural "Birds of Paradise", right next to the Captain's Helm. ;).
