Once in a lifetime experience - do yourself a favor and opt for the boat and NOT the kayaks. They do get sold out weeks in advance, esp. around holiday time, so do make reservations well in advance. My first trip to the bay was with the other boat company and I have written a review about them as well. It was hard to get them to answer your call but we did make it and we were able to make a reservation, We took the 6:00 PM tour and it was the day before full moon day. We thought it was the worst possible time to see the bioluminescence but we did not have a choice. But the glow was surreal, and it was no different from the glow we experienced 5 days before, with the other boat company. The guide Mario was very funny and informative and made the experience fun for us. The captain even helped us with the camera to get some good pictures of the glow. Our experience with this company was soo much better compared to the other one. Would do it again!

Yes, we, too, were glad that we made the decision to take the boat rather than the kayaks. So much more relaxing and informative. Crew did a great job of explaining everything, and it was all taken care of so professionally. I was expecting more of a "glow" and surprised that the pictures showed more "glow" that our "naked eye" could see. But, still were glad we did it. And the crew adjusting our camera and taking pictures was a definite plus.

So glad we decided on this tour rather than the kayaks! Tour guide Mario was very informative about the environment in and around the bay. Crew was very good. With the electric boats we were able to go much further into the bay than the kayaks were so ee could find an area where the bio luminance was better. We were even able to get a great picture taken by one of the crew and texted to us. Very comfortable boat, you don't get wet at all, so no worries about taking camera ect on board. Would recommend this tour very highly.

I am so glad we decided to do a boat tour, and with this company. It was such a comfortable way to explore the biobay and the staff were great.
