Kayak through the waters of Laguna Grande, the only bioluminescent lagoon in the world, during this 5-hour tour from San Juan. Under the starry night sky and the historic Fajardo lighthouse looming above, watch the glowing organisms in the water light up as your kayak slices through the water. Paddle through stands of mangrove trees and watch small fish dart through the water underneath your boat like shooting stars. Stop for a break with snacks and refreshments before heading back to your starting point. Use of all kayaking equipment and round-trip hotel transfers are included.
Agency has superb customer service, they asked me questions and established that I have booked a tour to wrong place since we wanted to swim in water, not only kayak. Alex was amazing, picked us up from Old San Juan, drove to the other end of the island, waited for us to finish dinner and then we had the most amazing experience inside bioluminescent bay.It is a must for all visiting Caribbean, this world wonder is hard to find. Absolutely fantastic!!! Highly recommend!
The tour was very cool. From the driver that brought us to and from the event to the guides that took us out on the water and back. They were all funny and knowledgeable.
Well worth the money.

Having visited Puerto Rico only once before for one evening, to catch a cruise the following day, I learned of the bioluminescent experience and I wanted to avail myself of it the next time I was in PR. Fast forward five or six years and another cruise departing from PR was on my itinerary. Thus, I made it a point to enjoy 48 hours prior to our voyage and book this tour through Viator, because I used them last summer in Europe and adored the professionalism and the experience.
There are two departures, one near sunset and one after sunset. I think the earlier trip is more desirable, in spite of the incessant mosquitoes. My daughter and I took the earlier departure and were blessed to see all of the landscape as we paddled on our way to the bay, as well as the sunset. Paddling back in the darkness was fun, but the folks that were paddling out at the hour weren't able to see the lush scenery that we did.
Viator, to its credit, had copious amounts of insect repellent available for use. I forgot such areas as the back of my neck under my hair, arm pits, elbows, back of hands, and of course, that's where the mosquitos were able to drink and dine! Water socks are a plus, use the insect repellent, and enjoy! I don't have any photos as I didn't dare take any technology with me on the water.
The four tour guides were very informative and did the best they could with the size and inexperience of our group in pitch darkness navigating through the mangroves to the bay. They were upbeat even when we were second guessing our excursion! Paddling back against the current was difficult at times for most kayaks. We ended up having an adventurous time, and ALL laughed and complained about our experiences on the ride back!
This has to be one of the coolest experiences of my life. Our driver and tour guide Jeysika pick us up in a nice and clean black van. She explain the instructions and a clear orientation about everything while driving to the BioBay in Fajardo. When we arrive we sign a waiver and applied the bug repellent that was supply by Bespoke Tours, the tour company. After kayaking for about 30 mins against the current, you finally arrive to this large lagoon. It was a decent workout, especially if you have a partner like me who was too busy looking at the scenery rather than paddling
Inside the lagoon, I was put my hand in the water and was disappointed that it didn't do anything. Our kayak leader Michael got us into a group and started to explain the phenomena and why it glowed. During his little talk the sun was finally completely gone and he told us to dip our hand in the water, make a fist and then open it. It made a tiny spark.
As the sun went completely out, the glow got brighter and brighter. One of the coolest things was to just coast in the kayak and put your hand in the water letting it drag. The glows made it look like sparks were flying from my hand. By far, one of the coolest things I've ever seen. If you're ever in Puerto Rico, you have to try this experience. It's definitely mindblowing.
This was an adventure of a lifetime. The bioluminescent bay is absolutely incredible and beautiful. The guides were fun and very helpful. Highly recommended!
This was an amazing experience! Great guides, extremely helpful staff. It was a ton of fun, and we even snuck in some amateur astronomy.
Super fun, guides were so nice and informative.
This was a great tour even though the bioluminescence was not optimum in February. My husband liked kayaking through the mangroves in the dark almost as much as he enjoyed the bioluminescence. The guides were very informative and even helped us to find a part of the bay where the bioluminescence was most striking. Would definitely recommend this group. They made the tour lots of fun!!
This tour was very nice. The guides walk you through what you need to do and help you every bit of the way. Javier and his group are humorous, gracious, and really know what they are doing. You get a brief lesson on how to kayak, details on how long the excursion will last about 1 1/2 hours, and they talk you through what you will be doing staying to the right in the mangrove channel, row one kayak behind the other, follow the lights from your group, and so on. You also get a lesson on the bio luminescent creatures! A great excursion, especially for families!
