A really well documented guide, that explain a lot about the biological and chemical fact of the luminescence, because you see close to nothing is the way to distract the tourist. All you can see is something similar to a sporadic underwater firefly. But the...More

Overcrowded with kayaks, in the mangrove forest kayaks hardly can move from each other. There was only a few flickers of bioluminescense when we stirred the water. Not worth the long trip or the price.

I have seen bioluminescence before, so I kinda knew what to expect. But my siblings had not, and they were a bit disappointed. Yes, we saw the pretty sparkle-like effect firing from our hand motions underwater, but it's just not as dramatic as pictured in...More

We went during mid-March 2018 when it was just about to be a new moon. Would definitely recommend checking the moon phase because if the moon is out, it's definitely harder to see the water light up. I think one of the neatest parts aside...More

If you are in the Fajardo area, you have to do a kayak tour an check out the bio bay. This is a experience you will never forget!

We chose this tour knowing fully well we were going to go on a full moon night. We unfortunately could not plan our vacation around the moon, but we still had a great time. We enjoyed kayaking through the mangroves - it was very pretty....More

Yes! I did the same thing. I would stay the night though because the tour is mainly at night. The area is very nice. You can do a bunch of other activities too, like hiking In El Yunque. Enjoy!

Yes. It is still amazing. I have lived in Puerto Rico most of my life and have seen it brighter and dimmer. It never ceases to amaze me.
