Amazing trip! We got poured on the last five minutes while we were trying to dock which made for quite the exciting end! I would definitely do this again!

Seeing the water light up at night with each stroke of the oar was great. We were happy that the tour picked us up because we would have never found it on our own.
The canal from the bay was crowded but because everyone wants to go. Guides were okay.

Absolutely a MUST DO in PR! Impossible to capture the beauty of this experience on camera, you must do it yourself.
Yes, it's dark on the way back, but absolutely worth the trip.

A truly amazing experience. Seeing the water glow a neon blue when disturbed was just amazing. My wife and I got out a little bit from the group and saw a school of fish underwater...that was really cool. Looked like 40 or 50 little blue blurs darting in the water. Also saw a really big fish that left a big blue streak across the water. Very highly recommend this to anyone who goes to Puerto Rico!
The paddle wasn't too bad - just be ready for a little frustration because rarely in my life have I experienced dark (like the complete absence of any light at all!) like that. Couple that with some of the kayaks not having lights on the back made for an interesting trip back. Would this stop me from going back? Heck no! It was amazing! Best part of the trip!

Had a great time! Definitely one of the best things we did in Puerto Rico. The driver was on time and friendly, and the staff was knowledgeable and fun. We loved the kayaking, and having to do it in the dark was part of the adventure. You dont need to be an expert kayaker, but be prepared to get a bit of a workout, especially crossing the slightly choppy bay to the mangrove forest. The staff supplies bugspray, but the bugs werent all that bad. They are right that the bioluminescence (although very pretty!) does not show up on camera. Overall a very unique experience.

Little crowded but the 3 guides handled it well , quite the workout though paddling in the pitch black but overall an amazing experience ! Not to miss

Pleasantly surprised!!! I booked this trip prior to leaving on Vacation. Traveled with my 3 teenage boys and husband. I was giving incorrect information about the # of people per Kayak. Other than that, it was wonderful. 2 per Kayak. Easy to Kayak and maneuver thru the mangrove! The bioluminescent was amazing to experience but once in the bay the constellation of the stars was so impressive. Personally the ride thru the mangrove and the star show made this the best experience ever. Go on the 6pm so that you can experience some light while kayaking thru the mangrove. Take this trip and book it with Viator. Have fun.
