Kayak Tour to the bioluminescent bay First let me say if you are going to do this tour, use The Kayak Rental – Eco Tour. The guys that ran this were awesome, fun and very helpful. They only charged $50/person vs. $75 at the hotel. 1. Do not buy this at the hotel (we stayed at the El Conquistador Resort... More

Kayaking at night to the bio bay is the most magical natural experience I've ever had. You have to see it to believe it. Beautiful beyond words. The businesses organizing the activity trips were sensible enough to the natural resources and gave us a safe and rewarding experience that's both physically exciting and mentally uplifting. A must-see if you come... More

We went on a moonless night so we could see the bioluminescent creatures. First we kayaked to the bay following a winding channel. Once we got there we jumped in the warm water for a refreshing swim. The place and the colors were amazing. We'd do it again in a heartbeat.

I visited the Bio Bay on December 6th. The 8:45 pm trip. The guide who had me and my two friends sign the waivers was extremely nice. Very personable guy, told us all about things happening on the island and celebrity parties. We did the boat tour with bio bay due to all the things we read about kayaking. The... More

We went with Kayak Puerto Rico and this trip was the highlight of our vacation. The bay is just amazing and the staff was very friendly and informative. Make sure you pick a dark night to go, you won't be disappointed.

Unless you really love the kayaking, do yourself a favor and book your Biobay tour in an electric boat. This was one of the most fabulous things I've EVER done and recommend it highly. We used Baby Bay. Don't be confused, the word "Bio Bay" refers to the place, and most companies use it in their company name, too.

The biobay in Fajardo is beautiful and such a fun experience. We did a kayak tour and it was so pretty to see the glowing water almost like glitter. This is definitely something that should not be missed.

OK, the bay was great with all the sparkly creatures - BUT - getting there was a nightmare for us since we don't kayak and we especially don't kayak in the dark. You have to follow your guides through a 1 mile of tight mangroves to get there: running in to other kayakers, hitting my hands on the side of... More
