This is one of those Incredible things to do in Puerto Rico. It is such an awesome night activity, we did the kayaking which was perfect. Highly recommend.

Went on the tour expecting to see a glowing bay. Didn't see that but not disappointed! We went on an electric boat that only holds 6 people. Went through the mangroves to reach the bay. The tour guide Mario, a biologist was very informative as well as entertaining. Going through the mangroves was like being in a Disney movie. Branches... More

Nathan was very chill and informative. Las Tortugas kayak tours was cool. The Bio Bay has seen better days....

The kayaking to this location is rough and they have other kayak tours and BOATS through a small canal and its hard to maneuver through it.

Favorite art of trip. Went with kayaking Puerto Rico. It was a full moon, so not as luminescent, but just the paddle through the mangroves was work the trip. Put this one on your list.

Let's put it this way....it's a waste of money! The tour guide even stated that it hasn't worked in a long time.

This is a must to do in PR since there are only a few easily accessible places in the world to see bioluminescence in the ocean. However, when we went, there weren't a lot of these out because it had recently rained. Although we did see them, it was nothing like the tour pictures. My kids enjoyed it, but they... More

This experience, I would classify as a must, but it depends a little on luck depending on season, rain, moon, and nearby human activity. My first visit, in April, was magical, the bioluminescence trailing like flames from the oars of my kayak. On my second, late October, a few sparkles was the most we could scare up. Be prepared for... More

We just returned from this 1:45 minute trip into Laguna Grande and it. Was. AMAZING!! We used Eco Adventures Kayaking (one of about 12 outfits that head into the lagoon every night.) the guides were nice, funny, and very knowledgeable about the local fauna, flora, and wildlife. I highly recommend you jockey into position to be near one of the... More
