The Bio Bay is a must at Vieques. It is told to be one of the best Biolumiscent bays in the world. The experience is really stunning. At Vieques there is a number of companies doing the tour and they are more or less similar. Unfortunately you are not allowed to swim in the bay any more as there was an attack of a shark (probably; no one really knows if it was a shark or a barracuda) and also to prevent water pollution. Try to watch for the sharks swimming under your kayak. We were told that there are plenty of them, but we didn't see any. Why I rate it as "very good" only? Because it's nice but after some time it's a little boring. The water glows! Wow. OK, but after 20 minutes it's still only glowing. You see some "fish lightning" (It's really great!), but it's not enough for an 1 hour tour. I would really like to have a possibility to swim there.

What a beautiful experience. The bay was so amazing, and our tour guide was fantastic. Next time I will definitely do the kayak tour - we went on the pontoon - the bay was so calm and tranquil.

You can't fully appreciate the bay without seeing the mangroves and learning about the eco system that allows the bay to thrive. Abe offers an all-day kayak tour with experienced, knowledgeable guides. Don't miss out on the full-day experience.

If you travel to Vieques, you must see Mosquito Bay. It is unique in the world and it would certainly be a shame to miss out on this opportunity.
