The overall experience was good and a must see/do experience.

Provide gear storage, organic insect repellent, fresh water rinse, and snacks at the end. They are really professional and you can trust these guys!

The only thing that was disappointing was the inability to hear the lecture from the group leader. This was due to the fact that in preparation for the lecture, the leader asked all of us to line up so that we are all facing towards him. As a result my kayak was positioned at one of the far ends of the chain so could not hear his commentary very well. This was worsened by the fact that the kayak next to us decided to let go of us, so we started drifting away.

More time to just float around in the lagoon would have definitely added to the experience to give us time to just splash around and observe the phenomenon. The experience ends up being constant kayaking, or listening to the leader talk.

This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Puerto Rico. I wasn't sure what to expect but it was so unique and memorable. I had two children with me, one 13 and one 8, and I think the level of adventure and difficulty was perfect; just enough to push their comfort zone but not enough to scare them. It was pitch black at some points, which really highlighted the beautiful sounds of the nocturnal wildlife. Kayaking at night is a totally different experience; the bioluminescent life in the water was fascinating. I felt very safe with the guides and the whole experience was so well organized. I would definitely recommend this if you really want to take in the best of Puerto Rico.

We took the bioluminescence tour on 1/18/13. Everyone working for the tour group was professional, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The on the water time was 2 hrs and that was after 45 minutes or so of information and safety talk. The paddle was not too strenuous but steady enough to not be boring. Dan, our lead guy, was full of information that added greatly to the experience. Really appreciated the tour company's focus on the environment and the ecology of the area.

Nice introduction for newbies... very helpful tour guides... especially Jorje... Description of the history and ecology of Laguna Grande by the head guide was very nice... the mangroves can get crowded....

My parents and I had our biobay tour with enchanged islan on Christmas day when it was almost full moon. Everyone from Enchanted Island was knowledgeable and friendly, and the trip was very well organized. We have never kayaked before, but the crash course gave us the necessary instructions and kayaking at night was actually fun! Navigating through the mangrove forest could be tricky as there are turns and you might crash into the mangroves. We also went by bird island where we saw the silhouettes of lots of white heron. This trip would have been perfect if the light pollution from the full had not made it harder to see the bioluminescence (you can still see it, but not as clearly); but that's not Enchanted Island's fault and they made us well aware of the light issue before booking the trip.
