The Nauti Mermaid was a total loss when the eye of Cat 5 Hurricane Maria passed over Vieques, PR on September 20, 2017.

We hope to resume operations with a new boat in January, 2019.

Nautical Mermaid Charters – a locally owned and operated charter operation on the small island paradise of Vieques, Puerto Rico. Learn about:

  • The “Nauti Mermaid“, our 41 foot Lagoon luxury sailing catamaran yacht,
  • Our Crew, their experience, and qualifications,
  • Our Mission, Services and Business Philosophy.

Vieques, Puerto Rico – a 21 mile long and 4 mile wide island several miles off the southeast coast of the main island.

  • Some 55% of the island is dedicated to the Vieques National Wildlife Refuge.
  • Vieques DOESN’T have a “rush-hour”, any traffic lights, fast-food chain restaurants, big-box stores or high-rise buildings.
  • Vieques DOES have great restaurants, friendly people, some of the best beaches in the Caribbean and some lovely boutique hotels.
  • There are just two towns on the island and it’s only a 15-minute drive from Isabel Segunda on the north side to Esperanza on the southern coast.

Bioluminescence Bay in Vieques, Puerto Rico – The brightest bioluminescent bay in the world is Mosquito Bay in Vieques, PR. Whenever the surface of the water is disturbed at night, the surface glows a bright blue-green due to microorganisms that glow in a fashion similar to fireflies.

“Wild Horses” of Vieques – Horses have been freely roaming around the island for hundreds of years, but many are more “Free-Range” horses rather than fully wild horses such as those found in Nevada and some other Western states.
