Don't be scared off by the mosquitos. I am often bit tremendously and had not one while doing the night visit. It's a gorgeous thing to see under the stars!

This was the reason for my travel to Puerto Rico and I was not disappointed :) I did one night of motor boat tour and one night kayak tour. I definitely recommend doing the Kayak over the motor boat since you are closer to the water and the luminescence that way. You have to experience this bay to know how... More

try and go on a cloudy or moonless night. the objective is to be on the bay when it is pitch black outside. as you paddle out in kayaks, you will notice that the water illuminates with all the dinoflagellates being moved about. surreal. as schools of fish swim underneath, they are also illuminated. IMPORTANT POINT: don't use bug spray... More

A bucket-list experience of a lifetime! Surreal glowing waters, outstanding star gazing, sparkling glowing schools of fish swimming around the canoe. Wear bug spray without deet, prepare to get a little wet!

I have to preface this by saying that I went when you could still swim in the bay, and that is no longer allowed. This was a really cool experience, with the bioluminescent critters lighting up as you paddle through the water. You can see the fish swimming as streaks of light under the water. The kids loved it, but... More

If you want to see magic and experience something that you could never imagine then you need to go out on this bay at night and hope for a rain storm...see fish swim underwater and light up..sting rays swimming turn into sparkling delights. Dip your hand into the warm waters and see thousands of tiny sparks of light,with every paddle... More

Kayaking the bio bay was the main reason I chose Vieques for our family vacation this year. We went last night with the guys from Bieques Eco Tour (Eric, David & Choco) and we were not disappointed. It was a great experience. Just being on the bay in a kayak with balmy weather, warm water and a star filled sky... More

My daughter said this was one of the best things she's ever done in her life. For me, it wasn't one of the worst -- but I would rank it up there with one of the scariest if you are afraid of snakes...You will take kayaks through a very narrow opening where you will constantly be bumping into the banks...
