WHAT YOU VISIT
Topsail schooners were used during the War of Independence and the War of 1812 by both the U.S. Navy and by privateers who mastered the use of the seven sails aboard the ship, which can be used in different combinations according to the weather and wind. Your picturesque cruise departs from the Old San Juan cruise port and offers spectacular views of the historical city, accompanied by a fascinating narrated story that takes you through nearly 500 years of history. End the day with a real explosion of a historical cannon ball.
Old Town San Juan, Puerto Rico (views from the schooner)
Founded in 1521, Old San Juan is the second oldest city in the New World (the oldest of the U.S. and its territories). It has survived the ages under the watchful eyes of the impressive fortresses of El Morro and San Cristóbal, both built to protect this treasured city from foreign invasion. The coast offers views of the scenic waterfront promenade, Paseo de la Princesa, with its graceful fountains; the majestic governor's mansion, "La Forteleza"; and the many historic buildings that grace the skyline.
