I had read about this tour through tripadvisor and made reservations a few weeks prior to arriving in Puerto Rico. The tour was full so make sure you make reservations ahead of time. Francisco was an excellent tour guide. He was very knowledgable about the area and biobay. We did a night tour from 7 to 9 pm. You need... More

Very good synopsis of Marine life and tour of Lighthouse in Fajardo. You ride from one place to another with a tour guide in English or Spanish tours.There's plenty of time to see everything, and your walk through the Mangles is delightful and beautiful . Good for all ages and inexpensive. Had a great time, all you need is a... More

We took this tour before kayaking on the lagoon at night - great experience, and Karina was a very knowledgeable tour guide! Great views, and we saw 2 spotted sting rays in the lagoon!

We booked the tour because of the good reviews I read and this place does not disappoint! Make sure you book at least 3 weeks in advance!! The entrance to the Reserve is near the beach; it is quite small and we actually almost missed it. We booked the afternoon English guided tour and it has three parts: the lighthouse,... More

My family and I (including a pre-teen and 2 grandparents) thoroughly enjoyed our Bio-bay tour. The waiting area after check-in allows exploration of the natural scenery with a small/inexpensive gift shop. But the tour?! The tour was the highlight of our vacation! Seriously, it was more than just the bio-bay. Our guide was a biologist who taught us a lot... More

We signed up for their night tour that included the bioluminescent bay. They begin by taking you on a tram tour up to a working lighthouse and giving us information about light pollution. We then took the tram to a boardwalk where we walked through the nature reserve to the bio bay. They gave us long PVC sticks that we... More
