Overview

This is one adventure not to be missed while in Puerto Rico! Join this fully-guided nighttime BioBay kayak adventure into one of the most amazing excursions of your life. Paddle your way through the mystical mangrove channels leading to “Laguna Grande” in 2-seaters kayaks!

After kayaking for 30 minutes you will arrive to the lagoon where you will meet our glowing friends, the Pyrodinium Bahamense, microscopic plankton capable of producing natural light at the touch of your hand! Explore these amazing organisms up close as your professional eco-guide takes you to discover all its secrets. Learn how this fragile and unique ecosystem maintains a perfect balance of life and learn what you can do to protect such a special place. The water comes alive with millions of glowing plankton creating a firefly effect that must be seen to be believed!

On this amazing BioBay kayak experience, you’ll get to learn interesting interpretations about the reserve’s fragile ecology while paddling in a safe and closed environment. Explore these amazing plankton up close and watch how every stroke of your paddle leaves behind a glowing swirl of blue light.

Please Note: During the months of November, December and January, bioluminescence may be poor due to cooler temperatures. During these months the tour will be more focused on the ecology and not the glow. You will see sparkles of light during the months of November and December.  Full Moon phase may also affect the visibility of the bioluminescence.
