I was surprised about the 6pm flight too, but it's true!
Culebra Air was Air Culebra, and yes, I think they were bought out by Air America.
Regarding charters, Isla Nena will charter (and is chartering my wealthy in-laws (sadly, not my PARENTS-in-law :)) in March directly from SJU on Saturday, March 10, but I don't know what they are paying. I'm afraid to ask. They are 6 passengers.
We are charting Air Flamenco from Isla Grande on March 8th, but are limited to 8 people. This presents a problem, as we are nine passengers. This is costing us $8 more per person than if we were to book regular flights. Well worth it in my opinion to get the time you want, the location you want, and the whole plane (cargo bay and all). Now, I don't expect anyone to overpack - no scuba gear or anything, but we don't expect to have to pay extra weight fees either. But, we do still have the problem of getting that last person over to the island, but we're working on that.
Sue, if you can charter Air Flamenco for 8 of your passengers back to SJU, ask them to have that flight leave around the same time as the remainder of your passengers on a scheduled flight. They can probably get you all back over to SJU around the same time. Although we are all coming over at the same time, our departures times are scattered, and some of them are taking the 6:30 am ferry to continue the tour of Puerto Rico.
