Like others have said it was almost impossible to see anything in the bay. The tour by Viatour was short the guide Mike was rude and unprofessional when they had equipment issues. We barely went 100 yards into the bay. It might be more a bad uncaring tour just shuffling us through for money than the bay being dead.

Very disappointed in the trip. I realize that man can't control nature but on the Bio Bay boat tour we literally couldn't see hardly anything. They notified us that due to cold waters the Bioluminescence wouldn't be as bright however the truth was it was virtually non-existent. The boat tour is really pricey and I think if they know ahead... More

Sadly, this trip was a bust. I wish they had been forthright in telling us that the bay had been pretty much wiped out last fall, and is in process of renewing BEFORE we started the trip through the mango trees and into the bay. I would have much rather simply kayaked around than done this. If you're there for... More

This lagoons is a wonderful place. The trip is so much fun. You go thru the bushes in the dark until you arrive the lagoon with other people. The water goes bright with any move. It's a paradise. Few in the world.

This is one of the best nature tours I've ever been on. It's one of those amazing things in the world, like Niagara Falls - just takes your breath away. I went with a group of girlfriends to Puerto Rico for a bachelorette weekend. I believe we booked our Biobay tour through Kayaking Adventures. Ladies, do some arm workouts beforehand,... More

This is one of those unique things you do that you will always remember when you think back about that vacation you took to Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico has a few different places where you can take a kayak night at night and go to secluded preserved mangrove forest clearings to see bioluminescence. Worth every penny and more.

We were a family of 8 - did the canoe into the bay but you do have a choice to ride the electric boats in. Was fun.

I wondered if the organisms were dead. Good conditions - but we could see nothing. Not worth the wait or the trip.

Took the electric boat tour with Island Adventures. Our guide, Dan, was both knowledgeable and fun. First area we went to wasn't glowing so brightly and then we went to a different area that was amazing. Really, words don't do it justice. The stars were equally brilliant, and Dan was knowledgeable about them as well!

We love everything about puerto rico so I hate to write a poor review. The kayaking experience is fun!! The biobay are not real strong this year. We did not see the glow. The staff are amazing and make the experience fun either way. We also ran into some rain, that you can't control.
