Best Tour Guides!
Thank you Catalina, Natalia, and Javier for this wonderful experience. My cousin and I were STRUGGLING since the beginning and Javier and Natalia were so patient with us! Eventually, they attached us to their kayak after hitting the trees plenty of times and going opposite direction. They were also informative and shared important facts. This is a great group for beginners. Thank you so much Catalina, Natalia, and Javier! - Yasmín and Kimberly from San Francisco, California

Had fun!
Sep 2021 • Family
We had a great time. We went as a team of 3. Since the kayaks are for two people, my Dad and sister paired with each other, I was paired with a stranger. I did enjoy talking and getting to know the person I kayaked with and we found a rhythm. My Dad and sister having not kayaked in a very long time didn’t really get the hang of it and had to be saved by Javier(tour guide). Javier was very personable and talked with them and made them feel comfortable. The moon was out so it wasn’t really dark enough to see the bioluminescence. They provide you with a tarp to put over you and your partner on each kayak to make it dark enough to see the bioluminescence on the bay. Even with the moon being out it was still pretty dark so be careful you don’t hit into other kayakers and branches when you are traveling through the canal. Wear bug spray and shoes aren’t necessary but I wore flip flops.

Amazing experience
Sep 2021 • Couples
Natalia, Sandra, Javier, and Ema created an amazing experience! We kayaked through mangroves into an area where we could see the bioluminescent algae. Along the way they pointed out wildlife, planets, constellations, etc. They were knowledgeable and super friendly. It was very dark, but that just made it easier to see the bioluminescence.

Fireworks under water!!
Sep 2021
They are awesome bioluminescent sparkly magic creatures under water. They glowed when the water was shaken. They went in my kayak and on my lap! God can spark fireworks even under water! Some of our guides were marine biologists. They were awesome Natalia, Sarah, Amaury, Catalina, Javier!! They helped the ones who did not know how to kayak much. They were friendly and taught us explicitly and patiently. Then we got water and chips after. Big thank you from B, Jessica, Tom and Z 🤩👍

Cool adventure
Aug 2021 • Family
I really enjoyed the night-time kayaking in the Biobay. It felt like an adventure! I was a little underwhelmed by the bio luminesence in the water... didn't really know what to expect. With that said, we did see it and it was still pretty neat. Javier was a great guide. We absolutely loved looking at the night sky and learning about the constellations. Bug spray is a must. This trip is not for someone afraid of the dark, bugs, or some physical effort. You will get a workout.

Hola Tamara M, Thank you very much for your feedback. i am really glad that you enjoyed this trip so much! I concur with you, this adventure is not recommended for guests afraid of the dark. The bugs are different every night but I always recommend to wear long sleeve, bright color and to bring their own bug repellent if preferred. The physical work out, well, that's very individual. Some guests find it adequate, others may find it quite a workout, either way, you'll get a Pure Adventure! Thank you so much for coming. Cordially, Yolanda Ramos PURE ADVENTURE

A must-see, with amazing guides!
Aug 2021 • Friends
An incredible experience! Our guides were patient, made us feel safe, and were wonderfully knowledgable about the dinoflagellates (and even the constellations in the sky, which they taught us about while we waited for it to turn dark). I loved every second of it, especially because of our amazing guides: Javier, Catalina and E.M.A. A great plus that I did not expect was that they had tarps for each pair of kayakers so that we could cover the surrounding waters and get even further darkness in order to see the glow-- it worked great. My group is also very thankful because we forgot a purse at their kiosk and they kindly held onto it and made sure it got back to us safely. I would come back in a heartbeat!

We had a wonderful trip to bio bay in kayaks. All crew members were awesome. They explained everything so clear and were always friendly. All the way into the bay and back, the crew kept kayaking close to the group.
Thank you so much Sandra, Catalina, Natalia, Ema and Anthony. You guys are the best! Your attentiveness made our trip comfortable.

Best Company! Best support! Best Crew!
Aug 2021 • Family
Sandra, Emanuel, Amaury and the rest of the team, YOU ARE AWESOME!!! I have done this tour before, with a different company, and was not. By any means the experience I had with you all. This time it was the 1st for my husband and daughter and we had a blast! My inlaws came with us, and got all the attentions and support needed to make this a succesful and fun experience. My daughter Stella listened to all the scientific explanations with such interest. She was scared aboit being in open sea but you were so reassuring and supportive. When she got tired you noticed I was by myself carrying her weight, so Emanuel helped me row. My inlaws fell into water and their kayak turned, and Emanuel and Amaury were in the water with them helping them out in less than 10 seconds! Such an amazing crew! My comparison with other companies:
1. Better and more stable kayaks
2. Better service
3. More attention
4. Larger crew
5. Like 3 extrq dollars per person, worth every penny and more, eve if it was 5+ per person.
Again, you guys made our night, and it was the perfect highlight of our vacation back home from Texas!

Son un orgullo de Puerto Rico por su servicio y profesionalismo! Bendecidos todos, que Dios los proteja en el trabajo que hacen!

Wonderful kayak experience
Jul 2021 • Couples
We absolutely loved kayaking in the moonlight through the mangroves. The bioluminescent bay wasn’t at its best due to the moonlight but what a joyful experience anyway! Highly recommend.
Our tour guides were outstanding! Experienced, knowledgeable and so much fun. Each one of them seemed to really enjoy life and what they do!!
Kudos to Natalia, Sandra, David, Catalina and Emma!!!!❤️
