Meet your captain and group of fellow participants between Pier 3 and 4 at Old San Juan Cruise, then board a 19th-century style schooner for your 1.5-hour cruise.

Once aboard, you'll set sail for the waters of Old San Juan Bay. Enjoy the comfort and beauty of your vessel, The Amazing Grace, a topsail schooner created in the style of traditional American sailing crafts — the kinds that fought the British in the War of Independence and again in 1812, both as ships of the US Navy and as privateers.

Take in the sights around El Morro, La Fortaleza, and Paseo La Princesa as you cut through the waters, and savor the included snacks and beverages as you relax on deck.

Your cruise concludes back at the original departure point.

Indeed light snacks are served with tropical punches with or without alcohol (rum). The taste of the punches is OK, but not great.
