Come aboard the magnificent Why Knot Private Sailing Day Charter for a unique sailing experience in Puerto Rico. All of our personalized trips aboard our amazing 35 foot Jeanneau will allow you to experience the highlight of your vacation in Puerto Rico. As the #5 company in Tripadvisor, we integrate our nautical expertise, commitment to the best service and culinary talent into our sailing charters so that you sit back and enjoy a lifetime of amazingly memorable moments. Our voyage takes us to the beautiful nature reserve of Piñeros Island, 35 minutes from the marina. Depending on the Captain we could decide to visit Palomino Island. (Our destinations do not include Culebra since it represents a 6-hour sailing time back and forth.) Get cozy on the sailboat’s deck, snorkel beautiful reefs, indulge in a delicious lunch, take a refreshing dip in the sea, or simply relax at the white sandy beach. Kick back and enjoy a beverage or two while soaking up some rays in our enjoyable floating lily pad. Our snorkeling spots are secluded and peaceful to make for a true one-of-a-kind experience. You will be amazed at the crystal clear emerald waters where you will discover stunningly beautiful sea life. The thousands of pristine reefs, healthy corals, and colorful fish create a perfect underwater oasis. As you work up an appetite exploring the reef, a delicious barbecue lunch is prepared on board with locally sourced ingredients. Guests will also enjoy assorted snacks and refreshing beverages including beer and wine. An impeccable boat fleet, the expertise in nautical tourism, and personalized service come together for a uniquely amazing sailing charter experience. Our vessels are meticulously maintained and outfitted for comfort and performance. Our sailboat has 1 guest bathroom, an outside deck shower and stereo speakers.
