Celebrate National Ocean Month with these Puerto Rico Ocean Activities!
The summer months are quickly approaching— it’s time to sit back, soak up some rays and relax by the ocean’s shore. With June being National Ocean Month, this is the perfect time to visit Puerto Rico as the Island is lined up by hundreds of miles of picturesque, beautifully conserved shores, from the Atlantic Ocean on the north, to the Caribbean Sea on the south.
Below is a guide to ocean activities in Puerto Rico to soak up some summer fun under the sun:
- Kayak in the Laguna Grande: Encounter one of nature’s most elusive sights, all from the comfort of your kayak.. The Laguna Grande in Fajardo is a unique body of water with a narrow-long canal that leads to a dazzling “glow-in-the-dark” lagoon. As you stir the water, tiny organisms light up with a blue glowing hue. This is a must-see and one of the most visited bio bays in Puerto Rico.
- Snorkeling in Escambrón Beach: Located in San Juan, and next to the Caribe Hilton Hotel, Escambrón beach, is one of the most popular snorkeling destinations on the Island. This beach has several rock formations that protect it from the rough surf of the Atlantic Ocean. Aqua Adventures offers gear rentals and snorkeling tours for those wanting to swim next to the friendly fish of Puerto Rico.
- Surfing in Rincón: Western Puerto Rico is the ideal surfing destination: warm waters year-round, fun local surfing culture, and conditions ranging from easy, two-foot waves. For a jaunt in the western waters of the Island, Rincón Surf School and Verde Azul Surf & Stand Up Paddleboard Shop offer board rentals, lessons, and other guided adventures.
- Horseback Riding at Isabela Beach: Experience the contrast of the ocean blue to lush tropical green while riding the shores of Isabel Beach, offering the views of soft sand and the beautiful turquoise waters. Tropical Trail Rides offers horseback riding tours, and for those who are able, a brief hike up the cliff to see the exquisite panoramic view.
