Great sailing trip around the harbour while learning about the area and enjoying free cocktails. All the ships crew were great and we especially loved the music by Ezra.
Great drinks, great trip
Benjamin_M, Mar 2023
Had a wonderful experiences with drinks and great views, but we were sat in the side of the boat in the sun. Made it harder to enjoy the trip because we had no shade for a while
The tour was disappointing. We arrived before other parties we were told that we had to move. This was very.
Vivian_H, Mar 2023
The ship ride. The ride was nice however this was not much history regarding the island. Because we were moved , we could not hear much of what was being said. We were basically ignored by the person describing the tour. He was also rude to my friend and completely ignored us on the way off the boat.
Fun afternoon under sail!
Meredith_A, Mar 2023
Crew was very friendly and enhanced the trip with historical information as well as fun stories! Drinks were great as well.
Please avoid East Insland
Rupali_K, Mar 2023
We booked this trip through Vaitor. Day of trip we had car issue, we called 2hrs before to rebook to next day. East Island excursion charged me $25/person for change. Next day when we arrived for boat ride, they were letting other people change without any penalty. We thought it’s a rip off. When I called East Island, they clearly said they are not aware of it and refused to refund.
Hip, Fun, Glorious & Authentic Sailing

Great Experience
Matthew_N, Mar 2023
Wonderful cruise with the crew of the Amazing Grace. They were friendly, entertaining and professional. Beautiful views from the bay and history to go along with it. Drinks were tasty and plentiful. Overall a great experience and would highly recommend. Side note, our confirmation phone call asked us to arrive 45 minutes early. Totally unnecessary. Get there 15 minutes and you’ll be fine. Don’t waste your vacation minutes getting there any sooner.

Made for a wonderful gals trip on the water. Beautiful view, plentiful drinks and vibrant history told by a wonderful storyteller/1st mate (Fernando).
They need to check their information
Deborah_L, Feb 2023
We missed this tour completely! The directions provided to us in our confirmation email were totally wrong and took us in the opposite direction from the meeting place. We engaged the help of locals as well as two police officers to help us find the correct place but by then it was too late. Not our fault but both the tour company and Viator refuse to refund our money. #Not a happy customer after
Excellent afternoon cruise
Mark_S, Feb 2023
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour with Captain Michael, Fernando, and the rest of the crew. Small enough group that you could interact with everyone, lots of history and photo ops!

Sabrina_M, Jan 2023
Breakfast wasn’t included like advertised the check in was at 4pm but I arrived at 8am the front attend was very rude
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thanks for your feedback but it looks like you are confusing our tour with another supplier. Our excursions for this day sail are at 2:30 pm and we don't include any food, just beverages. We offer offer an 1.5hr sail at the Old San Juan Bay and breakfast is not part of our inclusions. If you have any questions feel free to contact us and we will claryfy and doubts. Hopefully this helps! Happy New Year!
Fun day at Sea
Darisleydi_S, Jan 2023
My family and I started our New Year’s Day right, sailing go through the beautiful coast of Puerto Rico on the Amazing Grace. The crew, Diego, Fernando (bday boy), Yanu and Daniel, we’re very attentive, fun and knowledgeable; and the drinks and music were a total vibe. 10/10 recommend!
Great Amazing Grace Tour
Coralas_M, Dec 2022
Old San Juan Harbor Sailing Tour- "Amazing Grace" was an amazing sailing tour. The guides were kind, informative with safety measures, knowledgeable about the island of Puerto Rico. It was a nice smooth cruise. Saw some major landmarks around the island from a water view. Thanks Amazing Grace Team!

Staff was very friendly and kind Diego was very funny and the trip was awesome! Drinks are amazing and were included in the trip! Thank you we will definitely do it again next time.
Beautiful sail with great crew!!
Hedley_P, Aug 2022
We LOVED this sailing tour, Captain and crew! Highly recommend! Witty & excellent history tour given by young guides who set the sails and furnish refreshments. 10 Stars for this excursion!! Amazing Grace is a lovely and comfortable schooner [Sit on cushions in middle, if you don’t want any sun. Nice sunshade, but wind was refreshing too - even at midday. Highly recommend for singles, couples or families,
No one had to walk the Plank
