Don’t trust this company

We were so excited to experience the boy bay. Everything seemed great. We received several texts confirming our excursion including a link with the location. We left early enough to make it at 8:00p and put the location in our maps. That’s when it went all wrong. We arrived in a dark alley in a Puerto Rican neighborhood that did not seem safe. No lights no other cars. No signs. I tried to chat on the Viator website (which is who we booked thru) no one answered. There wasn’t a number to call. So my husband and I just left and came back to our hotel. We only have one more day left in Puerto Rico and I’m not sure I would trust them even if they tried to rebook. I feel like this was a scam. I’m not even sure at this point who to contact. So we are out the money and the experience. We are very upset and will not recommend this company or tour.
Loved it!

The trip up the canal is majestic, the tour guides are very professional and knowledgeable, go on a dark night so you can see the glow of the organisms better

Spectacular kayak tour!

It was a beautiful kayak tour. The tour guides kept track of all of the kayaks and we all stayed together for the experience. Easy and safe. Beautiful tour. It was easy to see the bioluminescence in the water in dark spots of the tour.

It was very hard for my bf and I but thanks to patient and helpful guides we made it through. The organisms were not has bright as we expected but kayaking in the dark was quite the adventure. Aníbal, was extremely helpful and helped us get through the hard parts
Not bad

It was a fun experience kayaking in the dark with awesome team that helps you along the way. We didn't see a lot of bioluminescence as you would expect but we got to see some. The con of this was that some ppl don't follow the rules and have never been kayaking before, so expect some to run into u or try to pass you then get stuck affront of you then u have to wait there for team member to come and save them. Frustrating.

Thank you Adam, for your visit. Understand even some inexperienced kayakers were bothering your way; I feel you enjoyed it. Our guides are fast responders for situations that could happen. We are all prepared with radio communication and always ready to assist. Hope to see you next time in better surroundings.

I’m only giving 4 stars bc I was lowkey SCARED. The instructors were GREATTTT man they knew a lot about bio bay and they have us a 101 on kayaking for us who never did it before (me and my bf) and we did GREAT the only thing is I was scared bc of how dark it is. It was really dark and we could barely see the one light or glow sticks at the ends of the kayaks. I wish there was more light to see but I guess that would distract the planktons anyways it’s a great experience, and we did see the light ups it was cool 9/10
Very exciting!

The microorganisms were absolutely BEAUTIFUL ❤️ It was very dark and a little scary lol but well worth it.
