BY PASSENGER FERRY:
You may check the schedule and buy passenger tickets online at https://www.puertoricoferry.com or in person at the Ceiba ticket office. However, if you are unable to buy the tickets way ahead of time, we would strongly suggest you consider taking the airplane.
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. 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). The cargo ferries take 1.5 hours, and also carry passengers. The present one-way subsidized fare is $2.25.
We strongly recommend that you purchase the ferry tickets online well in advance to avoid lines at the ticket office and assure that there is space for you.
We recommend that you do not rent a car on the main island of PR to take on the cargo ferry to Culebra. Bookings for cars on the cargo ferry are very limited, insurance may not cover if you take car on the ferry, and you would not be able to get roadside assistance on Culebra from the rental company. It is highly recommended that you first get to Culebra without a car and rent a car from the local Culebra companies.BY AIRPLANE:
