Left our phone number on their answer machine....got a call back within 20 minutes (unlike the other electric boat company who never called back). The printed directions we got were ok until we passed the Conquistedor Hotel and ended up going through a maze of neighborhoods, but eventually we found the park. I think we missed a turn somewhere, because... More

We took the 7:15 trip with bio island on their electric boat and had a blast. We arrived pretty early and ended up hanging out next to the dock waiting for the boat to come back from the early tour. Mario greeted us and informed us that there was a mechanical issue with the boat but they were repairing it... More

I'm going to make this review easy. Do this!! Don't t do the kayaks!! It may look lazy but getting into a dark mangler without any light and kayaking makes the experience not so good. We passed them in the boat and I felt sorry for them. The other reason is that the water bright when it moves. The boat... More

I have nothing but great things to say about our experience with the BioIsland biobay tour. I booked our trip about a month in advance via phone and did so with ease. There was no answer when I called, but I promptly received a call back and was able to book a Saturday 9pm tour for two. About a week... More

We took the 6:00 tour. It was fabulous. Felt sorry for the folks on kayaks trying to find their way in the dark. It was especially difficult for those kayaking for the first time. The electric boat it's the way to go. Our tour guide, Mario, was excellent. He was so knowledgeable of the bioluminesent lagoon. Great experience...highly recommend!! :-)

We booked our tour in July for October thinking we would get the best tour time. The only option we were given was 6:30 p.m. Then a few days before the tour we were told that the time would now be 6 p.m. This is way too early. By the time we could see much glowing, we were on the... More

I originally booked a 6:30 tour and was concerned about it not being dark enough. I was told that it would be plenty dark enough and not to worry. Our tour was then changed to 6:00 and again was told not to worry. After taking the trip to the bay we waited for the sun to set while waiting our... More

This was better than expected. Our family of 4 decided to view the bay by boat and that was the right way to do it. I would not recommend kayaks. Those poor people were having a hard time and I do not believe they experienced what we did. Captain Jeff and the others (Barney) were so nice and knowledgeable. Bring... More

BioIsland was great. There were 7 of us and we comfortably fit in the electric boat. So much better than tandem kayaking! The marine biologist on board was incredibly knowledgable and answered all of our questions. One of the highlights of the trip! Captain Jeff setup our DSLR camera to get the perfect pictures.

Captain Jeff and his crew were awesome! Right from the booking process to the end was all smooth. I called them and initially there were completely booked... but from reading the good reviews from others and reading the bad reviews for BabyBay (rightfully so - will post my experience re. them under their listing) I tried my best to go...
