We booked the Bioluminescent Bay kayak trip through Pure Adventure. Cost was reasonable and the guides were exceptionally knowledgeable and kept all entertained. We went on the earlier trip (5:30) and were happy with this decision. Paddling through the mangroves while it was still light allowed us to view the mangroves and the small spider crabs crawling on the branches.... More

I have to admit there is nothing else in the world that compares to this tour. First you kayak through a neat little bay, where boats are anchored and hen you go thru the mangroves tree cave systems... It's surreal and amazing, kayaking through is very easy and you honestly don't prepare yourself for what your about to see because... More

Absolutely beautiful!! Take to kayak with the glass bottom. The guys are awesome and the experience is worth every penny you pay. Warning you do have to kayak back in the dark.

My second best night time adventure (Maura Kea stargazing was number one). This bay is amazing. Do a kayak tour to get up close and personal. Go on a no moon or little moon night to see the effect best. It makes the movie Fantasia (section with the dew) look lame.

This is one of only five permanent bio-luminescent bays in the world. If you've never paddled a kayak at night, and seen the glowing streaks off your paddles, you must see it. Also crazy flying fish that create long bright flashes... I've seen brighter bioluminescence at home in Ssn Diego, but just by chance and under the perfect circumstances. Try... More

We kayaked out to the bay through what looked like a jungle. Once we reached the bay area, we were on our own to kayak throughout the bay. We went on a night when there was a full moon which can make it difficult to see luminescents. The crew was well prepared and brought us all into a group and... More

I enjoyed this experience - not my first time - years ago you were aloud to swim - not you kayak. People should be warned that it is a late night and not to drink too much prior to the outing.

Glad we did it, but not worth the $. Would not recommend to a friend. But if you do, go direct to the Bay area and make arrangements with kayak companies.

The evening kayak tour was a ton of fun! Quite a sight to see and would tell my friends it's worth it. I fastened a hangar in the shape of a heart and whisked it through the water. Best part was swimming in it!!

Love it would have like to had more time to look around! They get you in and out fairly quick. They give you scientific info about the bay. The kayak trip in the dark was a hoot, kayaks coming and going in a 10 to 12 foot wide stream with mangrove trees and roots all along the bank! Needless to... More
