Our tour of the bio bay by "Kayaking Puerto Rico" was excellent! The staff was friendly, funny, and very well organized. We scheduled our kayaking tour on a date when the moon was dim/dark to maximize the bioluminescent effect. Our tour started at dusk and ended a couple of hours later. We had a great time kayaking thru the red... More

We went in late April- with just a sliver of a moon. We booked the 5:45 tour which was pretty perfect (do this in advance!) Wear some swim short or bathing suit--- as your seat gets a little wet. No you may not swim in the bay! Yes we did see 2 people leaning too far over and they tipped... More

I recommend taking a tour that takes you to this Fajardo location. My gps wasn't 100% reliable and I'm pretty sure I would have gotten lost trying to find this place on my own. We were the 1rst group out for the evening which wound up being a good idea. It definitely got dark going through the mangroves at night.... More

If you visit Puerto Rico the kayak tour to the bioluminescent bay is a MUST. We went on a perfect new moon night, at the 8pm tour on Sunday with the company that has the bottom glass kayak. The experience was amazing. I love to kayak but this was my first time kayaking in complete dark though mangroves and it... More

Loved the luminescent bay but did not enjoy the Kayak trip there. If you are going with children under the age of say 15, you need to pass on this excursion unless you have a guy in the kayak that can paddle for 2. The earlier trip (6:15) is the easiest to kayak out to the bay. Coming back isn't... More

I see some people complaining about how tiring it was rowing, well it really wasn't. I was kayaking with my younger brother who's 12 and I'm 14. Neither of us are in athletic shape and my brother has only kayaked once and I've never done it. We went through a dark tunnel in the water. The trip going through it... More

It is chilly, wet, dark, late, there are mosquitos, and it seems nobody around you can steer a kayak! HOWEVER, this is an AMAZING experience. You cannot imagine until you have done this how cool it is for everyone who goes (we were there with teen girls and two adults). We have been scuba diving and snorkeling all around the... More

We took the early tour leaving just before sunset. I recommend the early one as you get to see the beautiful mangrove trees and surrounding wildlife. It was an unforgettable experience and I would go again given the opportunity. For those staying at the El Conquistador, you can walk to the kayak launch site.

Truly a remarkable experience, you jump into the water and it lights up. You move your hands around the surface and millions of sparkles appear. We booked this through Rinconvacations.com. The business was Paradise Scuba and Snorkeling Center in La Parguera, Puerto Rico. Best times to go is a moonless night.
