Getting to Culebra by Ferry

Ferries to/from Culebra depart from the port town of Ceiba, Puerto Rico. The port of Ceiba is 1.25 hours from San Juan International Airport (SJU) under light traffic conditions, and 2.5 hours on rush times. A taxi (or “publico van”) is readily available as you exit the airport in San Juan; $90-100 for the trip for your family group. UBER, when available, would be somewhat cheaper.

Passenger ferries are fast (45 minutes) and cost $4.50 round trip per person.

It’s important to note that you are not allowed to bring your car on the ferry, which is why we are here to take you around the island during your visit.

While the ferry is a cheap option, WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND OUR VISITORS TO FLY TO CULEBRA INSTEAD OF TAKING THE PASSENGER FERRY. Flying is the most reliable–and least time-consuming–way to get to Culebra. The ferry system historically has been unreliable, especially for non-residents. If you do prefer to take a ferry, we are here to help you make sure the timing works for your vacation plans.
