Activities as back up if we cannot get into Culebra

We are planning to head to Culebra Island on July 7 (Sat), I read a lot of articles saying that it's not easy to get the ferry ticket. I am afraid we cannot get the ferry ticket that day,so I am just curious if we cannot get to the island that day. What other attractions or activities that we can do that day. We will go the El Yunque and Liquillo Beach on July 6 (Friday), so we want some other things to do as back up. Thank you for the advices. Hopefully we can get to the Culebra as first priority.

Have a backup plan to get onto the ferry to Vieques and go to Sun Bay instead.

This happened to us last time we were in Puerto Rico. We drove over to El Conquistador and booked a snorkel excursion. They were able to take us that day, and we had a great time.

It's much easier to get to Vieques than Culebra. To add Ray's suggestion, Red Beach is another option. Publicos can take you there for $5 and $3 (one way) for Sun Bay pp. I would go to both, start with Red Beach, then Sun Bay, that's a total of $13 on Vieques transportation pp for both. I would try to get on Friday morning than Saturday as Frankie suggested. Be there at least at 7 am. Some will get there at 6:30 am or earlier for Culebra's 9 am boat.

Another option is taking a boat trip to Icacos, but it cost more.
