Boating and Sailing Near Rincón

Rincon is more than surfing – sailing is popular here as well

The center for most of Rincon's watersports is the Black Eagle Marina. Fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, parasailing, and sailing trips all disembark from the marina on a daily basis, and it is also the place where those who sail their own private yacht to Rincon will dock their boat.

If you merely want to get out onto the water, without the cost and responsibility involved with renting a boat you can join an excursion. See the listing below for names and phone numbers for area excursion providers.

When you arrive, customs will go over your immigration paperwork as well as the official documentation for your boat, and issue a chart of $25 to $37(USD) for a 12 month cruising permit.
