The attraction may sound corny, but it's a beautiful trip. We went on the pontoon boat with our two kids - 9 and 6 - and it was safe, and enjoyed by all.

We went on a night excursion as the waxing moon was quarter full. Too much light. The bioluminescent experience was very modest. Still, a fantastic evening under the stars.

The best bioluminescent bay in the world. Something you have to see. Make sure you check on the moon prior to booking your tour so you can maximize the experience.

This is the best bio bay in PR! Be careful with your timing. 26 months ago there was a reverse current that washed off most of the dinoflagellate, the organisms responsible for bioluminescence. It took about. 2 years for it to get back to 50% of what is used to be. Even at half population during the absence of moon... More

Most tours seem to involve a lot of paddling in plastic kayaks, but the experience is rather amazing. Don't be fazed by those who say you need to do it on a new moon. We went one week from a full moon and had a great experience. Since this is Mosquito Bay, be sure to wear mosquito repellent, even if... More

The bioluminescent bay is really an incredible natural wonder and a must see for any visitor to Vieques. There are only four bioluminscent bays in the world and Puerto Rico has three of them! The one on Vieques is the largest in the world. There are many outfitters that you can use for the bay but we chose Jax Watersports... More

We used Bieque Eco Trips- They picked us up at Sun Bay in the large parking lot where many horses graze. We had a great informative driver. His name was Chuko. The tour was wonderful and fun! A must do! Not only will you be amazed by light up plankton, but you will see ever star in the universe as... More

Go when there is no moon for best luminescent display. Either kayak or go on the electric boat. The stars are easily viewed from here too. Bob with Island Adventures is so knowledgeable about all the constellations and the Greek mythology stories that go with them.

The best part of it was kayaking in the dark, which we'd never done. I was extremely disappointed, but I guess maybe it was also because I was expecting something different... ie. a bay all lit up. I didn't realize you had to do it yourself and then when I moved my hand around, it got all white (not blue)... More

After an amazing day of celebrating my birthday around this beautiful island, Taino was the only company that had a seat available. Glad I got these guys. They were on time, and it was truly an amazing experience. Carlitos, our guide, was cool, informative, and funny as hell. Thank you for adding to and making birthday a blast!
