If you need to buy a lot of supplies, like tent, sleeping bag, cooking gear, etc., you should do that in Fajardo then take the ferry to Culebra with your supplies.
There was a post recently about a good driver from San Juan to Fajardo: http://www.islaculebra.com/forvm/read.php?f=1&i=21558&t=21558.
If your flight gets in to SJ in the morning, you should plan to get a ride to Fajardo in time to shop and catch the afternoon ferry to Culebra.
If your flight gets in to SJ in the afternoon, plan to get a ride to Fajardo, shop for supplies, spend the night in Fajardo, and take the morning ferry to Culebra with your supplies.
I would NOT plan to buy a lot of gear on Culebra. Bring it with you.
ps - if you can bring your supplies with you, that would be best. You do not need much else when you're there, a pair of flipflops, some shorts, a shirt and suntan lotion. All of THOSE things you can buy on the island!
