Water Sports & Deep Sea Fishing in Rincón, Puerto Rico


 

Rincon is all about water sports and deep sea fishing! With over 8 miles of beaches along our Atlantic and Caribbean coastline - you're never more than a few minutes from your favorite water sport or the marina.

Swimming is popular all year round on our Caribbean Coast and the public beach which is located in 'downtown' Rincon Pueblo.  During the surfing months of November - March the beaches along The Sunset Coast can be a little rough for swimming on some days when the surf is up... but in the rest of the year its great for swimming and snorkeling.  Puntas - The Fun Coast is a great mix of surfing, swimming and lots of beach activity all year long!

Use the listings on this page to help you plan your vacation in Rincon.  You can select from the best sources for Surfing, Snorkel & Watersports (Banana Boars, Kayaks, Jet skis, etc), SCUBA Diving, Deep Sea Fishing, Parasailing or Day Sailing Tours & Sunset Cruises

Surf Shops & Surfing Lessons: Rincon has been known for the best surfing in the Caribbean for years. The surfing season only runs from November to March - so you'll want to make sure and visit when the surf's up.  Surfing breaks are located off the beaches of Puntas - The Fun Coast, the point where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean and our Sunset Coast. This is the time of year when you'll watch world-class surfers challenge some of the most amazing waves you'll ever see.  In the summer months, the surf calms down but you'll still find some smaller surfing waves depending on weather and ocean conditions.

Even if you don't want to 'hang ten' with the experienced surfers, you'll want to enjoy the action from the beach or at the Lighthouse Park. You'll quickly see why experienced surfers call Puerto Rico 'The Maui of the Caribbean'.

If you want to learn how to surf - don't be intimidated by the huge waves at Domes, Marias or Tres Palmas. There are lots of places where the waves are just right for beginners and intermediate surfers. If you already know how to ride the waves - you can rent surfboards and body board from the surf shops listed below.

The 1968 World Surfing Championship and 2007 ISA World Masters Surfing Championship were held in Rincon and there are events sponsored by the Puerto Rico Surfing Association every winter. Check www.apspr.net or www.rincon-hangout.com for event schedules and information.

Snorkel & SNUBA:

Snorkel & Water Sports: During the summer months, the surf along our coast calms down and becomes a great place for snorkeling just offshore. The Tres Palmas Marine Reserve at Steps Beach is especially good - but you'll find great snorkeling all along the Rincon beaches. The reefs at Tres Palmas Marine Reserve have extensive beds of Elkhorn Coral which is a threatened species. Like any Marine Reserve, make sure you don't touch the coral (it can be very sharp) or break coral formations with your flippers. Taking souvenirs of the coral is prohibited by Puerto Rico and Federal Law.

During surfing season from November to March - it is better to check with the dive shops and arrange a snorkel trip to some of the calmer offshore reefs or on Desecheo Island which is 12 miles offshore.  Dive Shops also have snorkel equipment for sale or rent.
