WITHOUT A PADDLE Kayaking during the day proving too easy? How about kayaking at night...through a mangrove forest. As my wife and I planned our second trip to Puerto Rico, we agreed that a bio bay kayak tour should be on the list. Only 5 biobays exist in the world, 3 of which are in PR (in Vieques, La Parguera, and here on the far northeast corner of the island). There's a few kayaking tour companies in the area, each offering a similar bioluminescent excursion. Hang on, biolu-what? I'll skip the TED talk--all you need to know is that a certain kind of marine plankton makes the water in extra salty lagoons glow blue. It's the same science that gives jellyfish, fireflies, and deep-sea anglerfish their special ability to produce light. When we arrived around 8pm, tour guides gave our group of 15-20 life vests and provided instructions, like what to do if your ass falls out of the kayak. Our goal was Laguna Grande (literally "big lagoon"), roughly 1 mile from our starting point on the shores of Fajardo. So......getting to Laguna Grande is not easy. Along with a partner, you'll paddle your way through a narrow channel surrounded on all sides by thick mangroves, including an overhead canopy. This is tricky during daylight hours, but at night the difficulty ramps up. Keep in mind that visibility in these thick mangrove patches drops to near-zero at times. You might (probably will) have to avoid other kayak groups and (possibly) motorboats as you make your way to the lagoon, all while trying not to crash into the person in front of you, fall too far behind, or be knocked unconscious/impaled by low branches. The outbound trip was not super chill, thankfully coming back was less stressful. Having an experienced partner is CRUCIAL. Bio bay tours are very much like whale watching, in that your visit is based almost entirely on luck. A lot needs to go right in order to see magic stuff in the water, like the moon being in its 'new' phase (full moon casts too bright of a reflection) and no recent rainfall (rain comes down as fresh water, decreasing the lagoon's salinity). Under ideal circumstances, the microorganisms appear as florescent blue swirls when you move your hand/paddle through the water. What we saw were closer to electrical 'sparks', still cool but not vibrant. Capturing what little bio-presence we saw on camera would've been impossible, so we smartly kept our phones in the car. Oddly enough, mosquitos weren't a problem. * TL;DR * For me, this was more about the journey than the destination. If I'd hung all of my hopes on seeing tons of bioluminescent activity, I would've been disappointed. I was focused more on trying not to capsize while also listening to the symphony of 'coqui' (the local island tree frog). It can be romantic with a spouse/partner, assuming they're not yelling at you the whole time. Wear comfy clothes (swim trunks aren't a bad idea) and be aware that parts of your outfit will be crunchy the next day, due to the lagoon water being twice as salty as the ocean. Mangroves play a critical role in the tropical ecosystem, but they stink! Would definitely recommend this to anyone over the age of 18; it's an awesome late-night adventure and one of the most unique things you can do while in Puerto Rico.
This is the path we kayaked - 1mi each way thru a narrow mangrove forest! Definitely not for beginners
The guides took our photo as we headed out to Laguna Grande! Kayaking at night is WILD
We were lucky to find parking in the rotunda. So try to come early because it gets full. It was an unforgettable experience to see the bioluminescence. It is so beautiful. Its a bit creepy to paddle around a bay in the dark but once you get used to it it is fun. I felt safe 100%
Awesome tour!!! The guides were super friendly and provided excellent instruction. They took us to the best part of the lagoon, allowing us to witness beautiful bioluminescence. There were at least four guides with our group of 11 people. We were safe, at all times, in their capable hands. Thank you!! We highly recommend this tour to everyone.
What a beautiful experience. Had great guides during our Bio Bay tour. Our guide told us all about the science and history of the bay. Very cool, don't miss this magic!
Really great tour for people looking for a mild adventure at night that requires some kayak ability and it athletic skill. The nighttime tour would not be recommended for people with a fear of the dark, thought I found it serene and beautiful. The guides were fantastic, knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. Special shout-outs to Jose and Adrian who towed my wife and son trough some tricky parts. Those guys rocked!
Amazing tour, amazing tour guides! We all met up, got in the water, kayaked about 30 minutes to the lagoon and spent some time learning about the bioluminescence of the organisms that live there. A little science, a little workout, a lot of fun! The stars were amazing. We then kayaked 30 minutes back after spending about an hour in the lagoon. Great trip 10/10. Our guides were so knowledgeable and helpful!
Took a tour with PR Bio Bay and they have excellent guides. Definitely a must when there are so many inexperienced kayakers in the tour. They care and will not let anyone get hurt or stranded. They will tow you if necessary. The bay is a must when you visit PR.
Enchanted Island Eco Tours offer a wonderful bio lagoon kayak tour. This group demonstrates safety features of the kayak, provide instructions on how to navigate and ensure everyone communicates as a group for the duration of the two hour trip. Also, Enchanted Island kayaks, life vests and guides have color coded lighting systems for you to know who and where to follow. Some other groups didn't have lights at all! The tour and guides were amazing. Beautiful views, great educational experience and safety first throughout!! Thanks for an amazing time!!!!
I have kayaked Mosquito bay in Viegas twice and paddled the mangrove swamps as well. I have not done the swamp in the dark before so really enjoyed the little thrill that came with the night time paddle through the tunnel of mangroves. I had always heard that the bay (lagoon actually) at Fajardo was not as bright but I think it's pretty close! It was gorgeous with fish jumping out of the water and zipping all around. I loved seeing the mangrove channel begin to glow gradually. Enchanted is a more expensive option than the other outfitters BUT, there are a few differences and they do matter. The kayaks are top notch, The vests are the best I've encountered on a tour and are better than the one I wear to yak at home, The staff fits you into your vest so its on right AND comfortable There are lights at the front and rear of all the kayaks and as per the coast guard requirement the vests have lights also There are a multitude of different safety measures included that I appreciated but won't bore you with. There are 4 guides in the water with 20 people, this is more than twice the guide ratio to what is normal. THIS IS HUGE Water to rinse off when you get out and good quality snacks on return. These things are extremely relevant and will make your trip so much more hazard free.... On a busy night the mangrove channel is crazy with motor boatS And other kayaks -- it would be easy to get tipped or separated from your group in the dark. Because of their lighting system I had no concerns about staying with my group or following my guide. Puerto Ricans are warm friendly people in general and these guys are no exception, The staff is all very informed and informative of course but they are passionate about sharing their love of the lagoon and their island with you. I want to add another note here, we were booked for a trip a few days earlier that was canceled for weather concerns. I know the compny got some grief about the cancellation because some of the other outfitters went out with lightening in the distance and winds at 20 knots. Personally I have to say I appreciate their inclination to keep me safe rather than make a buck, it's hard to direct a kayak in higher wind and it takes some concentration to stay upright! It wouldn't have been much fun with those winds anyway! . They let me know early in the day ( they emailed me, called and left me a voice mail and texted me until I responded that I knew it had canceled) and they bent over backward to get us in a few days later. Quality operator and beautiful experience!
This was such a cool and unique experience. Its definitely a must if you are visiting the island. It was choppy and a little scary kayaking thru the marina in swelling seas (there was some rain in the area) but that only made the excursion better and more exhilarating! We did the kayak excursion (Enchanted Islands Eco Tours) and it was so cool paddling and looking at the bioilluminessence in the water among the mangroves. This excursion crew was very friendly and knowledgable. I would ONLY use this tour after my own experience. And I am glad we did. We were the only eco tour excursion that had lights on the boats and weren't complete idiots when kayaking (other tours out with us that night kept ramming into us!). Lights may not seem important when you want darkness. But when you cannot see your hands in front of you or other boats/kayakers, you will be glad you have them! Another highlight was the food bizarre near where we boarded. I think its in Parque Pacivo de las croabas. Many good pop ups food stands and friendly people. There was someone serving puerto rican rice and pinchos. We struck up a conversation and they shared with us some homemade Mavi. A much needed treat after our excursion. I even bought a tribal mask from another vendor.

Tours to bioluminescent bay [ edit ].
Quite a number of companies offer kayaking tours. Using a kayak is the only way to enter some hard-to-access places, such as the tunnels and channels of the mangroves. You can enjoy a spectacular ecological reserve surrounded by mangroves, coral reefs and most importantly, a breathtaking bay that will make you sparkle with every paddle.
Snorkeling is also popular locally. It is a great sport that does not require expensive equipment. Visiting the local beaches is an excellent way to see some underwater sights.

From San Juan, you can reach the Fajardo Bio-Bay in about 60-90 minutes depending on traffic, making this a great evening trip, provided that the moon phase is OK for the night you choose to go. Note: Some tour operators will offer transportation if there are enough requests for the night of your tour, so contact them in advance, if you would prefer not to have to drive.
What is a Bioluminescent Bays? It is a bay that contains millions of micro-organisms (dinoflagellates) that when agitated glow. The glow of the Bio-bay is best seen when the night sky is moonless or there is very little moonlight and most tour operators will not offer tours when the moon is not favorable.
How to Visit the Fajardo Bio-Bay Currently swimming is NOT ALLOWED at the Fajardo Bio-Bay (if this is important to you, then you need to visit the Vieques Bio-Bay) and up until recently the main option for touring the Bio-Bay was by Kayak. There is now a second option which allows you to visit the Fajardo Bio-Bay and remain on land; the La Cabezas Reserve now offers walking tours of the Bio-Bay. So if you are unsure about a kayak trip, this is an option worth checking out.
For the kayak tours, all tour operators meet at the Las Croabas boat ramp and most offer 2 trips during the evening. Times of these tours will depend on the time of year, but the first tour usually starts around 6 to 6:30pm, lasting about 2 hours. The second tour will start around 8 to 8:30pm.
You will need to contact the tour operator to check for age restrictions but it seems in general to be available for ages 6 and up. Operators will provide a life vest as well as lights snacks and refreshments. Tour guides are bi-lingual and are very knowledgeable about the Bio-Bay and the areas wildlife.
As you will be in kayaks, there is a good chance that you might get a little wet, so plan your clothing accordingly and wear some quick drying clothes or have a change of clothes ready in your car.
Operating Days Most tour operators will only tour the Bio-Bay when the moon phase is good for viewing and most (but not all) will only tour Mondays – Saturdays (Sunday is a day off to give the Bio-Bay a rest from people).
Tour Price Price will vary depending on tour operator and transportation requirements.
Selection of Tour Operators Las Tortugas Adventures – 787-809-0253 or 787-637-8356 Kayaking Puerto Rico – 787-435-1665 or 787-564-5629 Eco Xcursion Aquatica – 787-888-2887 or 787-550-4630 Akuadventures – 787-685-9522 use clear bottom kayaks.

sounds so very interesting! thanks for the great trip details.
I’m so glad I found this article! I had a post on the bio bays on my blog, because I was just mesemerized by this expoereince. But teh detailed list of outfitters was really helpful. I’ll link to this article.
Not sure if I have all the tour operators – so you could also do a google search
Silly question: Why is swimming is not allowed in Bio-Bay?
That’s not a silly ?
It’s my understanding that they stopped allowing swimming in the Fajardo Bio Bay to ensure that the bay did not loose it’s glow. Over use and pollution can harm the bay – this is my understanding, not an official reason.
BUT, over on Vieques you can still swim – this is probably because that bio bay is in better condition and will also have fewer visitors than the Fajardo Bio Bay
I stumbled upon your blog from the recommended blogs in my Google reader and I’m glad I did. My husband and I are going to PR over Memorial Day. We have been to PR before, on our honeymoon, and my husband has a lot of family in Maunabo. This is a great site to help us plan our weekend in PR. I was reading up on other places about the bio-bays and it looks like this will definitely be a stop on our trip.
Thanks and hope you have a great trip here

A melting pot of cultures, Puerto Rico was once described by a national travel guide as a “paradise’s baby wrapped in an urban comforter, with a U.S. uncle and a Spanish mother. ”For more than five centuries the converging cultures of the Caribbean Indians, Spain, Africa, and North America have blended to create a uniquely Puerto Rican heritage evident in our food, music, language, architecture, religion, lifestyles, and arts and crafts.
