We went on the second run kayaking tour with transportation included. Everybody was very nice and took extra steps to make sure that my daughter and I were able to navigate the kayak and have a good time. Special shout out to Donatello for entertaining my 9-year-old when she wasn't up for paddling anymore! Thanks everyone! So fun to do such as peaceful night time experience.
The guides were very friendly and informative. When we first arrived we had to sit around for over 45 minutes. Then kayak off shore in the pitch black. Navigating through the mangroves was the most interesting and fun part of the tour, even despite one of the guides screaming intermittently and hitting the trees with his ore for dramatic effect. Seriously lower your expectations for the lagoon, the bioluminescent plankton are tiny and faint (and I was there on a night with NO moonlight). It’s very serene on the lagoon and I’m sure on a clear night the stars would’ve been breathtaking. This experience should be billed as a “night kayaking trip” and not even mention the bioluminescence.
The tour guides were helpful and gave clear direction for beginners. They also helped anyone who needed it during the tour and made sure everyone had a fun and safe experience. We learned a lot about the bioluminescent microorganisms and enjoyed seeing them in the water. Overall it was a really cool experience. The drive to and from the bay from San Juan was long but we had fun on the tour bus so it was OK.
