Sailing is a popular pastime in Luquillo, but it is also possible to sail to Puerto Rico from international waters as well. Some people have their own yacht and will typically sail down from the east coast of the United States, or they will charter a boat to do the same. Those who don't have the skills to do so can even hire a crew to captain and run the boat for them.

If you merely want to enjoy a few hours on the open water, without the cost and complications associated with renting a boat you can join an excursion. Curious what it's like to go along for the ride? See the table that follows to get contact information for area excursion services.
