See my review of electric boat ride bioisland for details. Interesting natural phenomena that we very much enjoyed on our private boat tour. The Mosquitos were out in full force by the edges of the bay so be sure to spray even over your clothes if you tend to get eaten alive like I do.

My husband has Parkinson's, but he's determined to see and do as much as he can for the next few years while he still can. His balance is poor, so we've taken up kayaking this year so he can still get outside. We signed up for the Bioluminescent Bay tour while we were visiting Puerto Rico last week, hoping that... More

Whatever you are expecting this is better. It baffles me on how this amazing experience is not a bigger draw. I don't understand how this bioluminescent bay exists in such few places. I saved a sample of it in a bottle and the next day it did not luminous. If you have time in Puerto Rico, take the excursion. You... More

We joined the later tour with kayakingpuertorico.com and arrived at the meeting point around 8:15pm. We kayaked against the current in the dark, so dark that we couldn’t see the mangroves. Some kayaks ran into the mangroves and some people got slapped by the branches. It’s scary but exciting at the same time. You just need to keep up with... More

We were in San Juan for several days, as my husband was there on business, but we didn't need a rental car - except to get to the Bioluminescent Bay and El Yunque. We got one to make those trips, and it was definitely worth that additional cost, because this was an amazing experience. We opted for the electric boat... More

We took a sunset kayaking tour to the bioluminescent bay and really enjoyed ourselves. This is not the type of activity we usually do and our muscles felt it the next day, but it was worth it. Naturally, the expedition was timed to arrive at the bay just after dusk so that we could enjoy the light show. The only... More

My niece and I traveled to Puerto Rico for holiday. Her top priority was to tour the bioluminescent bay. I am so glad that we chose Charlie Robles Bio Bay in an Electric Boat Tour. First, we were able to soak in all the beauty and awe without worrying about paddling a kayak. Further, Charlie and his crew grew up... More
