this is a must do if you can paddle akayak for 2 miles. the water is never over you head so don't worry about falling out which we did not see in two trips. the first was near full moon and the seocnd was near new moon. You learn a lot about the mango groves and bioluminescence. stay near teh guides and you learn more as you have to go through the groves single file. It is like a disney pirates of the carribean tour but it is all real. It is the brighest bio water in the world and at times is like green florescent paint dripping off your fingers..

Make sure you go here on a night when there is no moon out, you will be able to see the water light up better on a really dark night. Parking was not so good as everyone is out enjoying the food vendors and the party atmosphere, but overall it was great!!

We went on the English speaking night tour - make sure to ask for this as most of the tours are in Spanish. Our tour guide Carlos was fun and very informative!

Having lived in Puerto Rico while stationed aboard Roosevelt Roads, I've been able to experience both of these beautiful bays. The kayaking was a bit stressful with my 6 year old, ( yes, she know how to swim), as she couldn't help me maneuver the kayak. Make sure you bring a waterproof flashlight to see your way through the mangroves ! My husband and 7 year old son were on the other kayak and did just fine. Once in the bay it's amazing watching the fish swim by, seeing the glowing droplets off your paddle and fingertips. I highly recommend this trip. Just don't let both flashlights be in the same kayak and get dropped over board by the 7 year old. Mosquito Bay was alot more relaxing as I didn't have to figure out how to maneuver a kayak. I would do both again ! The beauty of the water is something you will never see again!

This was my first exposure to Laguna Grande and since we had an infant in our group of 6, the only viable option was Night Walking tour which lasted for total of 2 hrs.

It started with ride in tram car and first stop was to the Lighthouse where tour guide presented power point around "dinoflagellates" and talked about significance of Lighthouse (This piece was informative but lacks universal appeal and might not find that many takers)

After lighthouse the next stop was Biobay - for about 30 mins with the help of long sticks you move the water to see the luminous effect.

Next stop was beach to experience it in the night and final stop was in the reserve where the tour guide talks about different night sounds in the reserve, showed species of coqui frogs, discusses how light pollution affects the area.

Overall great learning experience....If you are a student there are concession rates available for this tour...However was told that for Kayaking tour, mosquito bay, Vieques would be a better option.
