The Fajardo Ferry Service has been rerouted to depart from Ceiba, at the Roosevelt Roads Marina. Not a far drive from Fajardo, this ferry is still a convenient option for those traveling from Fajardo. Utilized by those making trips to Puerto Rico's sister islands of Culebra and Vieques, the ferry is popular amongst tourists who would prefer to forgo paying extra for another plane ticket, choosing instead to take a scenic boat ride.

Ferries from Ceiba are operated by Puerto Rico Fast Ferry and offer daily trips between Culebra and Vieques. Both are small islands off the coast that are frequented by tourists looking for a quiet getaway or a quick day trip.

There are two passengers ferries operating -- Big Cat and Schoodic Explorer. These are clean, comfortable vessels offering indoor air conditioned seating or outdoor seating with serene views. There are about 8-9 departure times per day, making it a convenient and somewhat flexible way to travel, leaving both early in the morning and late in the evening.
