If you want to see bioluminescent plankton, just walk to the bay after dark and watch the waves come in. The waves glow and it is very interesting and quite beautiful. However, only go out with one of the kayaking companies if you want to...More

Definitely go!! Great guide and really lovely experience. Kids would love it too. We took a tour from San Juan to the bay. The 2 man kayaks were well balanced so no risk of falling in to the water. Lovely paddle through the mangroves before...More

Most people kayak during the day where you can see everything. But this one was different. There was rain and wind, but kayaking at night was a great and different experience. It was so relaxing and beautiful. Kayaking through the area was so calming, even...More

Have taken house guests on many occasions and they all have been amazed and delighted. I would recommend this to be a top spot visit on a trip to Puerto Rico.

Great time awesome tour, and wonderful guides. Make sure not a full moon when you book for better viewing. They did offer canopy to get results but I would have booked a different day if I had thought about light pollution.

This was the third time I've been to bio bay. The first time, in October, 2013, was amazing. The second time, April 2014, somewhat less so. Last night I took my granddaughter and there was no bioluminescence whatsoever. None. Nada. Don't ever go this time...More

I used Pure adventure! It was great. Definitely stay towards the back of the group you will get more hands on experience from the guides.
Does IO Puerto Rico Eco Tours has a website? Can I reserve the Bio Bay tour with them?

Most of these tour companies are small and they might have websites. If you are unsure of choosing which tour company to use I recommend to go early to Las Croabas and choose from the 15 or more tour companies that are... More

questions: 1. Which time is best, the earlier or late one? I hear the late one you get to see more lights but the early one is less crowded and you can see getting to the bay 2. Which tour company is the best one to use for kayaking?
