I found the slightly buzzed older people bumping into trees and my boat amusing. The bay itself was wonderful

So much fun getting to the lagoon in the dark through the mangrove channel. Bio luminous planktons were amazing!!! Must see. The water just lights up when you paddle and put your hands in the water. Sky was amazingly clear with all the stars so clear. Rain cloud just came over and got us all wet while in the lagoon.... More

It was awesome. We took the electric boat ride out. The guide was informative and funny. We loved playing in the water. It was the high light of the trip.

We kayaked to a bio bay with Island Kayak Adventures. The trip is the same with all the companies that offer this - you enter a park in Fajardo and then kayak through a canal (it's a pretty long way) to the bio bay. Our company had two tours - 5:15 and 7:15 - since the sun set at 6ish,... More

It was absolutely fantastic with Enchanted Island Eco Tours. My only problem was there are not a lot of road signs to get there. GPS is extremely helpful.

Worth every minute of the 90 min trip. Dark mysterious and wet. Don't bring cameras or phones unless waster proof. Prepare to get very wet and try thekayakrental.com guys as they are very funny as guides. Very safe so no worries.

I found this trip by chance after speaking to the locals. If you can paddle a kayak and if you enjoy the dark, it's a relaxing evening that is a dazzling experience. Highly recommend.

We arranged our private tour through Raphael, 4 adults and 5 kids ages 8-15. He picked us up at our hotel at 9:30pm and we headed to the Bay. Marie and Pablo were our guides as we headed out in 2 person kayaks. It was thrilling to kayak through the channel in the darkness with just the glow rings of... More
