Innovation

El Innovation: The Pioneer of Nautical Tourism

The Innovation was built in 1970 as a replica of a US Navy LCPL vessel and was brought to Puerto Rico in 1971 by Captain Greg Korwek. It became the first vessel to transport diving and snorkeling tours in Puerto Rican waters. Since its inauguration into nautical tourism, The Innovation has sailed the seas of Puerto Rico. Now, this pioneering vessel is in Puerto Rican hands, with our team of local guides committed to maintaining its legacy.

El Kraken

El Kraken: Our Newest Vessel

Built in 2022, El Kraken is the newest vessel for our Puerto Rico snorkeling tours. El Kraken has been our recovery story after the devastating Hurricane María in 2017, which sank our catamaran FunCat. After a lot of effort over the past five years, El Kraken is ready to take to the waters of Fajardo, Puerto Rico – and we couldn’t be more excited.

El Kraken is a 46-foot vessel with a maximum capacity of 48 passengers. However, the maximum number of people we’ll bring on board is 40 to guarantee space and better service to our guests.

WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY

Cassie S

The staff was very friendly. The experience was enjoyable for the whole family. They worked with the children on board to help teach them about sailing and snorkeling.

Ron L

We have done many snorkeling tour in various places, this tour tops our list. Most “sailing” tours only go to the snorkeling site with the engine running. This tour sailed to and from the beach. We snorkeled at two places and had a two-hour stay on a great beach. Lunch was great and we had plenty to enjoy.
I highly recommend Fun Cat Catamaran if you are in Puerto Rico.

MLHoner

We have had a great trip to Puerto Rico and by far, the best thing we’ve done is spent a day on the Fun Cat Catamaran with Capt. Jim and his crew. They were all outstanding!!! The ship was beautiful. The equipment was top notch. The lunch buffet, snacks, and drinks were all delicious. The Pina Coladas were awesome!!! And all of the places we stopped were amazing. Do this tour – you will not be sorry!!!
