Returned here for the first time in about 15 years. Not as great as I recall from before. The illumination was not nearly as bright as I remembered and you're no longer permitted to swim in the bay (for good reason). It's still a very...More
We joined the night tour with Yokahu Kayak Trips. It was an amazing experience! The luminescence light glowed brightly when we moved our hands in the water. To enhance the experience, the operators brought a black plastic sheet to cover the group so that we...More
To be honest the Bioluminescent plankton were pretty underwhelming. It was nothing like in the photos. Still pretty cool though. The really fun part for me was paddling through the mangrove trees in the dark and the amazing night sky. Great family outing. We went...More
We participated a night kayak tour to experience the unique bio- luminescence in the salt-water lagoon. Navigating through the mangrove forest was interesting. When we reached the lagoon, the glittering from the water was brilliant whenever the water was disturbed. There was plenty of time...More
I've done some pretty cool sh$% and this is one is still top of the list. So cool to swim in that lagoon! We went a few years ago and definitly doing it again. I wouldnt say this is good for young kids, unless you...More
I booled through Island Kayak Rentals (IKR) and it was worth every penny and minute of time.
I had never kayaked before (its pretty easy, just communicate with other person in the kayak) and while getting there is a bit of a workout its very...More
Magical! We kayaked through the mangrove forest out to Laguna Grande. Dipping our paddles and watching the neon blue water drip off of them was magical! Once out on the bay, slam your paddle onto your boat and watch the fish scatter, stirring up the...More
I am still in ha about how challenging yet so rewarding! When you throw water on yourself and it looks like blue neon glow sticks splattered all over you, it only glows a second or so, but bioluminescent bay wow words can not describe.... the...More
My husband and I did the bioluminescent bay sea kayak trip with another couple in May. It was hit but not miserable. Heed the warning to use bug spray...you will need it. The educational part of the trip was fascinating! The trip back out of...More
We are going to be in Puerto Rico next week. We have booked with a tour to take kayaks out on the bio bay. I really would prefer a boat(as I know would my son who is not a huge fan of kayaks). I know there are 2 companies(both are sold out). Do you know of anyone who might charter an electric boat out ? I have looked all over the internet and cannot find anything. Thank you.

You need to have special permits to go on the biobay, so I don't think you can just hire a charter.
Laguna Grande bioluminescent tour - Walk or Boat? (4 Replies)
Hi there. I'm looking to head over to Puerto Rico at the end of Sept and want to see the lighted waters. I prefer the night tour where you have a tram and walk as I will be carrying pro photo gear to take photos. A couple of questions: 1) Is it worthwhile to do it on land, ie will the view of the bioluminescent water be good enough? The photos I've seen on Flickr suggest the best photos are if you're kayaking or motorboating (neither of which I am quite interested in as I get motion...More

Hi most people do a bio bay tour for the fun of it. I think maybe you should do some more research. All bio bay tours are at night. No ferries tour a bay. the bays are protected waters and are eco friendly. the operators use either electric motor pontoon boats or kayaks/canoes. I dont know about laguna grande, but, in Vieques you have to get away from shore to really appreciate the lights. also, you should look into what is required to be able to capture the effect of the...More
Bio Bay-Laguna Grande in Fajardo (6 Replies)
Can anyone suggest a good, reliable electric boat company to do the Bio bay in Fajardo? Bio Island hasn't been returning calls and it is very hard, impossible to get through them. As such, we're looking for other reliable options. Thanks for your suggestions.
