Athentic Experience paddling through the river in the mangroves at sunset to a large lagoon with glowing plankton. We took the 6 PM tour with glassbottompr and could see our kayaks, paddles and the occasional low branches on the way in. On the way back it was pitch dark with a slight chop when u get to the bay. In... More

The kayaking at night through the fascinating mangroves is worth the experience. Although it really stinks like sewage along the canals, apparently from seaweed. The Bio Bay was a disappointment only because we had too many nature elements against us. The moon was bright and the tide wasn't right. Even after covering all the kayaks with a tarp we couldn't...

This is by far an experience that I will NEVER forget! If you have never kayaked before I would definitely get some practice in before choosing this event. Also a warning, you are in complete darkness while kayaking through the mangroves, so if you have any fear of the dark this is not the activity for you! It is very... More

This was close to fajardo, and was about an hour of kayaking round trip through the mangroves to the bay and back. It was neat too go out there in the dark and see the glowing plankton. They said it depends on the moon and time of year how Bright. It was not as Bright as the pictures we saw... More

YouTube this experience...it's magical. Imagine swimming in the ocean and at your every move glitter follows in the water. Tinkerbell in the ocean. I went to the Bio Bay at Guanica, I'd suggest Paradise Scuba...snorkel and Bio Bay excursion.

The experience in itself was great. Went on a new moon so we were able to see some glowing. Our guides were knowledgeable and humorous. Mario and Captain Jeff. Do your research and know not to expect what you see in those pictures.

The traffic going to the area was extremely slow - and it was a Sunday night. Once we go there, the staff was helpful and a the kayaking was fun. However, the bioluminescence was very, very low. About 10% of what I had expected.

The short boat ride is beautiful and to see the glowing waters is a something you don't want to miss! I do recommend you wear sleeves and pants and lots of mosquito repellent. The bay is very saturated with mosquitos!!! Cute little kiosks to buy small treats or souvenirs also
