We went during the Thanksgiving holidays, make sure to have reservations. Waited for 2.5 hours, well worth it.

This could have been a really cool experience, but there were so many kayaks coming and going through the little channel bumping into each other that it was really a kind of annoying experience. It was pitch black and there were hundreds of kayakers (many who had never been in a kayak before) constantly bumping into you.

We did this tour off of a cruise ship and since it was a full moon the conditions were lousy for seeing any bioluminescence. First you get in a double Kayak and kayak across a bay--then thru a cool mangrove forest in a canal and then across the lagoon. My husband and I are in our 60's and hadn't kayaked... More

The kayaking into the lagoon was fun. It was still light enough so we could see the mangroves, the other kayaks and where we were going. Once we got into the lagoon, we huddled up in a pack, ran our hands through the water and saw silver sparkles. The guides then put a tarp over four or five kayaks at... More

We took the electric boat tour and unfortunately it was a nearly full moon after it had been raining. These are really poor conditions, so the bioluminescence itself was interesting but not spectacular. Still, I give credit to the boat captain and guide who made the most of the trip. They were good storytellers and knew the lagoon and bay... More

Kayaking through Bioluminescent Bay (Laguna Grande) in Fajardo was the second half of an all day family adventure ... and one of the highlights of our vacation !!! Be prepared to work, the bay is easily a 30/45 minute kayak trip up a river, through a mangrove forest, but the destination (albeit, a little congested with other travelers) was well... More

We are a family of experienced kayakers and went on this tour with Eco Action Tours, booked through our hotel. There were several tour companies operating at the same time the night we went out, which resulted in having *hundreds* of kayakers of all experience levels moving through the mangroves in complete darkness at the same time. There were many... More

Great place to do night kayaking to see the bio luminescent bay, we went with glass bottom boats and it was the best experience ever to see the bay underneath your boat.

Amazing Adventure - we went in with very low hopes but it turned out to be Wow adventure. The sparkle on water was beyond we can describe, it looked like series of blue diamonds on water! Wonderful Natural phenomenon.
