You can Kayak or take the tour to the Lighthouse and then go the Bay and see the bio-luminescent. You will walk to a pier where you can play with the water and it will light up your smile. It is like playing with stars!...More

There are many tours available, but we went with Peniel tours. They were fantastic, and the bay itself is a must-see! It looks like stars or diamonds twinkling in the water every time you splash, millions of them! Go on a dark, cloudy, or moonless...More

Trip guides were great, however bc of hurricane Maria, the bay doesn't doesn't glow like before. Also, its hard kayaking with 3 ppl in the boat if you arent used to it.

Awesome! The most wonderful people were our guides. Knowledgable of the bay life and the stats above.

Our guide explained that the current bioluminescent display is diminished compared to what it has been in the past because of the “sargassum seaweed assault” on many of the Caribbean beaches - and not as much from effects from Hurricane Maria. Our tour group even...More
