Got into the night kayak tour of Mosquito Bay at the last second due to some sketchy goings on with another "Biobay tour company"...needless to say, is was a night and day difference with regard to professionalism in my opinion. This place is actually ran like a reputable company!!
The experience itself was awesome...honestly, unless your some overly-cynical person about life in general, how can you not be amazed by the bioluminescence in the bay itself, regardless of how you got there?!?!?
The real topper was the lady who took down our info over the phone (perfect English, professional, and assuring), the van driver lady (very very funny and lively), and our guide, Carlito. Carlito was genuinely excited about the bay, was very informed about the ecology of the bay and came off humble and kind despite a "formal geneticist" personal engagement into the medical application of luciferin and luciferase (I'm a biologist myself, and I wasn't trying to swing around knowledge...the way the "formal geneticist" went about it seemed very pedantic).
Overall, this was a great trip and well worth every penny!!
A couple of notes:
1) No need to bring a camera as it will get wet and the picture won't be that good.
2) Do NOT put on mosquito spray with any deet in it, it keels the very thing you're trying to see!! Plus, Abe's supplies some pretty good anti-mosquito concoction for free.
3) The ride is very very bumpy, so be prepared...it is a very fun ride if you let it be.
4) Bring a towel...always bring a towel.
