    Highly recommend this tour

    The company that provided this experience are top notch. From the knowledge to the courtesy of others (some other tours were really rude and aggressive), to having lights on their boats so you don't crash into others (yes some other providers didn't) to simple things like snacks and water at the end it really was great beginning to end. Some important tips/notes: 1) don't bother bringing a camera. You can't use flash photography anyway and can't see anyway in a picture 2) bring a towel you will be set afterwards 3) it's not easy. There is a lot of paddling but as a complete novice it was completely doable and the guides helped. 4) make sure you put on bug spray. We are bit up EVERYWHERE

    The guides were great and it was a ton of fun. Going through the mangroves in the dark was amazing. If we had planned better, we would have tried to go when the moon wasn’t up, but the guides had dark tarps to put over the kayaks so we could still see the bioluminescence.

    Worth it but a lot of work

    It is amazing to see the bioluminescent water. Its also a lot of work. Kayaking is not easy. It takes a lot effort especially In he dark. Must do once. My teen sons was fine. My wife and I are in late 50’s and mildly active and it took a effort. Suggestion who wish to this. Choose a later start time. The darker the night the more you see. Bring mosquito spray.

    Bio bay tour w/ my 6yr old
    Cecilia_M
    , Jul 2022
    About an hour away from San Juan. It is very family friendly, my 6 yr old did it and loved it. They give you life jackets and a kayak and guide you through a small little forest into the bay. The bioluminescence was amazing to see in person but you can’t really see it if you record with your phone. 10/10 would do it again. Also the water for us was warm. It was pitch black night and I wasn’t cold nor my child.

    Most amazing and magical evening. The peaceful ride to the lagoon, the brilliant stars above and the luminescent creatures in the water. Seeing illuminates schools of fish swim by as we paddled back through the mangroves was amazing. The guides were wonderful as well.

    Unique Starry Night Biowaters

    I love exposing my kids to this type of adventures. We loved kayaking at night although they were concerned with dark/night light not being enough to see and maneuver through the canal. The staff were wonderful, assisting with a warm smile and informing. The info. Of the bioluminescent it's fun educational science in it self. We enjoyed every bit of the tour. I wished someone had responded to my messages and questions before booking. I booked for 7 of us and paid for transportation I did not need and no partial refund was offered and provided cause we were self transported. This is info that needs to be clarify for future tourist. We also enjoyed being in the open lagoon and experiencing first hand the sparkly/glowing bio water and seeing above the beautiful starry night. The experience for myself and inexperienced kayaking kids was wonderful.

    Ferly and Mano bio bay experience.

    , May 2022
    It’s our first time in Puerto Rico and it’s the first we traveled outside of the US because we are now comfortable to travel. My husband and I were looking forward to the Bio bay kayak experience. The staff was great. Rafael was kayaking in the back with us so we chatted for a while. He’s knowledgeable, funny and just amazing. He’s so proud of this heritage. Because it was a half moon that night we we’re not able to see the glowing planktons. Thank goodness for Plan B - using the black tarp over us. Great idea!

    Awesome experience! We had great tour guides that went through all the details and helped us along the way. They were fun and very knowledgeable. Definitely get a change of clothes and a towel! Unfortunately, The bathrooms were closed after we got back and we were pretty much soaking wet. There was nobody to help us out, so that was a bummer. Good experience overall.

    Yito and the whole crew were fantastic. They are very invested in an educational fun experience for everyone. I highly recommend this company. We did the Bio Bay tour and from that experience alone we would be willing to do any of the company’s tours if we had the time.

    Interesting if a bit underwhelming
    Adam_B
    , Apr 2022
    The experience was interesting if a bit underwhelming. We’re able to observe the bioluminescence but not like what you see in video clips. Most of the excursion was kayaking through a mangrove area in the dark to get to the lagoon. We’re in the lagoon for about 15 min for a brief presentation and then kayaked back. Not something I’d do again but cool to see

    fun time
    Rachel_L
    , Apr 2022
    We really enjoyed the experience of kayaking through the mangrove channel in the dark, and looking at the stars and water. The bioluminescence of course wasn't as insanely bright as videos/photos you see online, but was visible even without a tarp, especially on the trip back. It looked like static sparks to me. The guides were fun and friendly, and very patient and helpful to the people in our group who were not very good at kayaking. I am a historically terrible kayaker, but the water was calm and it was pretty easy.
