On a family trip to Puerto Rico last summer, we visited the Bioluminescent Bay and it was everything I hoped it would be. The water glows as soon as you touch it, and you could even see fish moving because of the glow!

Everyone who we spoke to before we went said its a must see in Puerto Rico. They say we went at a bad time since it was a full moon so maybe thats why it was bad, but it was very stupid nothing really to see. The coolest part of the trip which is why i gave it 2 stars... More

There are only a few in the world, must go during new moon. be aware this is at night and you must kayak to a bay. It could be a little stressfull due to the darkness but is worth it.

We took a tour with JAK Water Sports and had a really good time. We were warned in advance that the nearly full moon would impact how bright the bioluminescence would appear, and that turned out to be true, but the tour guides made it fun and we enjoyed watching the water light up as we swished our hands in...

Eco Adventure staff is the best! Thank you Derrick for assisting me throughout the whole adventure! I couldn't have seen the beauty of the bay without you!

Had the most awesome experience in our lives. The mangrove may be scary specially when you take the 830 trip. Take the 630 trip that way you see where you are going because coming back will be very dark. You will be following the boat in front of you that only have a small tail light. The experience was just... More

Too many people in our group to guide us safely, very difficult paddle in the dark through the mangroves, even for experienced paddlers, way too crowded with motorboat a coming through. I would not recommend. If you choose to do it, wear eye protection as we ended up in the er with an eye injury. Our tour company took good... More

Did the kayaking excursion through the mangroves to the Bioluminescent Lagoon. Absolutely loved the trip through the mangroves. Let down by the limited glow of the lagoon (only glowed around your hand when submerged). Worth the experience.

I purchased 4 vouchers for the rainforest/bioluminescent bay tour. The rainforest portion was great! Our tour guide Jerry was a bit eccentric, but very knowledgable. The bioluminescent bay tour was EXTREMELY disappointing. First, the company employees were unprepared for the number of attendees. There is a weight requirement of 200 lbs or below, if you are over that you cannot... More
