I loved this place and thy take pictures from thier own camera and upload to the facebook. No charge for photos.... More

By far way better than the Viequez bioluminescent bay. Try to go during the earlier kayak since you have to go through the mangrove water way. It was like going through the Disney ride of Pirates of the Caribbean as the sun descends…only you're the driver (paddler). Then as you reach the Biobay, the water glowing starts…very surreal and an... More

Amazing experience and worth the time and money. Use Enchanted Island Tours. A little stressful getting through the channel with so many other kayakers, but just relax and enjoy it!

its an adventure. It is quite beautiful but you only get to experience for a few minutes. I recommend taking an electric boat over kayaking...unless you are up for a work out!!

A really great outdoor experience if you don't mind a huge crowd! Evening kayaking tours to the bioluminescent lagoon are plentiful - with each tour group running about 15 kayaks of 2 people each, twice a night. Motorized boats share the route to the lagoon and the channel to get there is unlit and ridiculously crowded with tourists with no... More

Definitely worth the trip. Plan 4plus hours, but even though my husband and I had never kayaked before this trip, we would definitely visit again. The Bay at sunset is stunning. Take the trip, have a great time, create wonderful memories.

I completely recommend visiting the Bio Bay. We happened to have some friends who loaned us Kayaks while we were there- which, I think, is the best way to do it. We got there before the tour groups and stayed until they were gone! The bioluminescence wasn't everywhere- which surprised us. We had to paddle around and found a good... More

went there on a full moon day - opted mechanical boat tour - even with full moon we were able to see bioluminescence clearly and enjoyed it a lot.
