“Dangerous, not well planned”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2004

We booked Golden Heron tours through a package with The Crow's Nest. It made no mention of health limitations, or the conditions of the Kayaks.
This group is not well organized and runs a slo\ipshod trip. Do not book this trip that starts at 2PM and ends around 8:30. Instead, go on the motorized boat that is much shorter duration.
You will be able on the motorized boat, to go swimming in the biolumenescent bbay without having to slide off a kayak in darkness and having to board it in the same darkness.
I have a heart condition, but am active; combine this with a boat that had terrible suppport (missing cleats), it was a BAD experience!

“Our greatest Vieques Day (and night)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2004

We recently went out with Golden Heron Ecotours and had the most wonderful day of our vacation in Puerto Rico. We started out in the mangrove canals where we learned about the way it all works and then went snorkeling with 3 excellent guides. Dinner by the bonfire as the sun set was only a warm up to the kayaking in the biobay experience. Swimming under the stars and 'over' the stars was one of themost thrilling things we have ever done. I was very happy we were on a small trip in kayaks ( which were very stable and comfortable, as they all had good backrests) All 10 of us on the trip felt it was the best trip we had ever taken and would definitely recommend the trip and plan to come and do it again with our children.There was a disgruntled competitor of Elenas that tried to warn us away from her, how glad we were that we paid no attention to him and his buddies!
