Owner description: We offer several sailing tours daily including sunset and full moon tours. These tours depart from our Our Pier Six location in Bahia Urbana, Old San Juan (just a block away from the cruise ship ports) which is home to our spectacular 49 foot sailing catamaran which has a US Coast Guard approved capacity of 48 people. We are the only sailing tour operator in San Juan with a capacity for more that 6 guests at one time as well as the only one that is a catamaran (a design with a double hull to increase size of seating areas and stability). All the tours take you on a sail through history as you journey across the San Juan Bay to El Morro fort and beyond with our knowledagable crew members. They will provide you with the unforgettable experience of seeing this historical city from water level, the same way invading countries saw it when they tried to conquer it from Spain. You will see the entire coastline of the old city including El Morro, Paseo de la Princesa, La Puerta De San Juan, and the Bacardi factory. Some tours provide the option of paddleboarding along the coast while the boat anchors in format of La Puerta de San Juan. Special package tours are also available with Sea Planes in Paradise, the seaplane operation we share our dock with. All of our tour and services are available for private and corporate events, wedding related functions, and birthdays. We offer catering services and can accommodate most special needs upon request through our network of top rated suppliers. Visit our website or contact us for further information and reservations. We look forward to serving you as you come walk on water and sail through history with us. It will be an experience that will surely prove to be unforgettable.

Wanted to go sailing for the day with my 12 year old son. If your in old San Juan stop by pier six and take the tour on Velauno. Best time spent in San Juan . Crew was amazing!!! Sunset was BEAUTIFUL! And well worth the money.

This trip was not planned but it was the highlight of last sunday. If you're a local you may find $49 bucks p/p a bit expensive, but it was worth every second of the two hours trip. This catamaran is super clean, very organized, beer, soft drinks included on price and the sightseing is the best in old san juan, it was relaxing, Staff was really nice, the like to mingle, specially a dude called Carlos he was just an amazing host. I woul do this again.

Old San Juan and the historic bay is never appreciated fully until one takes this trip. The easy access to boarding the catamaran in Bahia Urbana, the safe and stable platform that this sailboat provides and the relaxation of the overall experience invites one to return. Bring your camera, you will never cease to take excellent pictures of the sunset and fortress.
Looking forward to assemble a big group of friends, bring some "picadera" and enjoy the trip even more: there's space to spare on this catamaran, either up front on the net (feels like hovering over water) or secluded inside the deck or on top of it.
The crew is so nice and they make it even more enjoyable by inviting us to refreshments during the trip.
In all, worth every penny. 5 star experience.

Must see tour while visiting Old San Juan. I am so excited that there is a new sailing catamaran that runs 2 hour trips alongside the 500 year old historic city of Old San Juan. It’s the only way to get a close up picture of the fortress, El Morro, and walls on the ocean side without taking a cruise ship. Sunset and night pictures are breathtakingly beautiful. The Velauno team even said that they do private events and group trips!
