I lived in San Juan and we used that Ferry on occasion. (I think it cost a dime back then.) You can catch the ferry, right next to the cruise ship piers. However crossing the bay to Catano takes you to an area of San Juan that is a little economically depressed, so be careful.
I recommend getting a group to go, not just a couple and I think there are often taxis right there. From there it is about a 10 minutes drive to Bacardi.
Make sure you check tour times before venturing over.
It is always risky to do private tours, Look what happened to a private tour off the Liberty just last week, I have to wonder if the bus driver may have been in on it. And also a cruise tour makes sure the ship does not leave without you. I'll stick to the $30 tour and fell safer about it. I'm on vaca money is not the biggest issue
