If you are looking to do snorkeling on your own you may rent a full face mask.
Whether you are a first-timer or a seasoned snorkeler using a full face mask is an option you should seriously look at.
Using a full face mask is a great alternative to a standard snorkel mask for three main reasons:
- Visibility – most mask models offer l large lens that extends to the sides of your face and gives a clear 180-degree view. The frame seals behind your vision line, which means you don’t have a frame that covers your view.
- Water barrier – the masks seal around your entire face, which decreases the chance of water getting into the mask when you smile. The rear strap holds the mask in place on your head, allowing you to move freely and take on the waves without losing the mask.
- Natural Breathing – While using a full face mask you can inhale and exhale through either your nose or mouth. Natural breathing helps keep you calmer and more relaxed in the water. The absence of a mouthpiece, also makes extended snorkeling more comfortable, allowing you to snorkel longer.
Lossing or breaking the mask has a cost of $45.00 per mask it must be paid in cash.
Pick-up starts at 10:30 am from the San Juan area towards Fajardo. It is approximately an hour's drive to the marina. It is highly recommended to bring everything you need, such as snacks and beverages, to the island as there will be no restrooms or shops there. It is also highly encouraged that you protect yourself from the sun (by using sunscreen, sunglasses, etc.) as there are no umbrellas or buildings to provide shading. Sailing from the marina to Icacos island is around 12 minutes. Our guests can enjoy the beautiful views of the El Yunque Mountains and the waterfront of the Fajardo coastline; or practice their snorkeling in the crystal clear waters of Icacos Island, amongst other activities. After 2 hours approximately, the water taxi will get you back to the marina, where there will be restrooms with showers for our guests to use.
You will have a chance to enjoy and have fun at the world-famous Luquillo Kiosk, on which you may choose from over a hundred authentic Puerto Rican food and gift shops.

You must be ready at that time to sail back. If for any reason you wish to go back to the marina before your tour is over, you may do so, but keep in mind that you will not be able to go back to Icacos. The bus will depart the marina at approximately 3:30 pm. If you are not on the bus, you will need to find a different way back to San Juan as the bus will not go back for you. We will not cover the expenses if you call a taxi, uber, or other means of transportation.
