As the sun sets to the west, your tour will depart for Pier 1 in Old San Juan. The pier is located within walking distance of all the cruise ship piers. After a short safety briefing, the boat will make its way east, passing by the San Juan waterfront. Condado and El Yunque Rainforest can be observed in the distance as well as Fort San Cristobal, the largest fort built by Spain in the New World. As the boat turns due North you will observe the Bacardi Distillery across the bay and Isla de Cabras island with its fort, San Juan de la Cruz, near the entrance to the harbor.
Further along, the walled city can be observed on the right side. The boat will approach the wall and you will get close to Paseo de La Princesa, the Roots Fountain, the Governors Mansion, San Juan Gate, La Rogativa, and Fort San Felipe del Morro. At this point the sunset is in full blast with a beautiful display of yellow, orange, and red. The captain will allow ample time for your to capture the moment and collect unique photos from the waters of the harbor before returning to the pier.
