The vessels daily sailings will start at 8:00 a.m., with a 9:45 a.m. arrival in Culebra, and continue to Vieques where it will arrive by 11:00 a.m. The return trip from Vieques will be at 3:00 p.m., picking up passengers in Culebra and returning to Old San Juan by 5:45 p.m. On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Island Hi-Speed Ferry will repeat the sailings, allowing passengers to stay longer in Vieques and Culebra.
