How to get there: well that is... More

Do your homework and get a private boat ride for $10/person, it's very simple to get there and back. It's a great place to go and have a quiet piece of beach all to yourself. The natural currents are very exciting and the water temperature is excellent. I'm looking forward to going back again.

If you want to risk spoiling your morning and the risk of staying at shore go ahead ! The ferry will start with luck at 9:00 am but the tickets purchase was horrible and tricky! Employees will treat you like rubbish ! Get a parachute and try to land there is a better option !

Visited in June 2016. Is a very beautiful, crystal clear shallow water. Local vendor and services have transportation to and from the island. It has become a tourist paradise; so be aware of not having a place to sit. You will need to arrive early if you planning to stay the entire day. However, the snorkeling is pretty good and... More

Crowded, seemed as if it was a who looks the coolest , and who has the best flotation device show. Went on a Sunday, heard the weekdays are a better experience. Island can use a little TLC as it has serious paradise potential. Not the worst time , but by far not the greatest. Possibly will visit again when I... More

Guilligan Island is a hidden tropical paradise conveniently located just 5 to 10 minutes away from the main ferry location. If visiting during M-Th, it is ok to go any time during the day, but Fri, Sat. and Sunday it can get crowded with locals. Ferry hours are 9am-5pm, no overnight camping allowed. There are picnic tables and grill available... More

We took a day trip here from San Juan. We rented Kayaks from Mary Lee's. After a relaxing 20 minute trip we were snorkeling in the reef and Mangrove Forest off of Gilligan's Island. Definitely worth the trip!
