Part Of The Top 5 List on The things to do at the Foodiespr App, check it if you are planning your trip to Puerto Rico.
Guides were good and the lagoon was neat, but you have to be lucky to see the bioluminescence.
Go with kayaking puerto rico. Wonderful staff!
This is a must for everyone! Definitely a unique and extraordinary experience.
Can get really crowded. But a must do experience! The water glows!
The dinoflagellates and stars are amazing. That is 10-15 min of the 2+ hrs. You don't go that far, it's just dark and chaotic paddling through the canal. I'd spend the $ for a private group next time.
Say hello to the chill Puerto Rican dogs hanging out at the beach right before your mind is blown from seeing the glowing awesomeness in the bay!
Did you know that some scientists have isolated bioluminescent genes and used them to make glowing roses & oak trees? Google it! (glowingplant.com)
IO Puerto Rico Eco Tours is an amazing guide. Much funnier and more engaging than the other tours. No web site, but 787-616-9594 or (787) 613- 3928 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
Try to get a departure just before low tide. Paddling is much easier, and the bioluminescence will follow you out through the mangroves towards the ocean when you're done.
When you are in the open waters, head to the mangrove trees. It's dark and the plankton really shine
Don't worry about bringing a camera. It is almost impossible to take photos of the bioluminescence. Instead, use your time instead to tour around the bay to find the best places to see the phenomena
Try to go when there is no moon or when there is cloud cover
Pure Adventure was a good kayak tour provider. Get an Ocean kayak if possible; they are a bit more stable.
Totally worth it. Prepare yourself to paddle as a team through a dark narrow inlet with only the light of the kayak ahead of you to guide you.
Later at night is better.
Definitely recommend Kayaking Puerto Rico. Try to come when there's a new moon.
Check to make sure there's no moonlight and jump in!
bring extra set of clothes & shoes (shoes & bottoms will get wet). FYI: mosquito spray, kayak pile ups, single file line, stay on right, watch out for mangroves smacking your face, strong arms!
A must do if you are on vacation. Book early, it gets crowded. Excellent experience!
Chose and experienced kayak rental and tour company for the best experience.
If you go on the earlier tour (recommended) make sure you use bug spray; and then spray again
Don't forget the mosquito repellent...
Kayak sounds scary but in a group sounds nice, it was kind of scary cause in straight up dark but this is an experience of a lifetime
Advance Tours P.R. is the way to go. Talk to Cruz!
Teamwork is important in the kayaks. Person in the back, try to synchronize. And practice breaking and back-paddling.
Breathtaking! Linger behind your group out of the mangroves. Your paddles and kayak light up the water and fish swimming nearby are like lazy lightning through the water..to the tune of chirping coqui
One of the most magical places in the world
Must do if you're within 50 miles of Fajardo. Such an indescribable phenomena, water glows like a leaky glow stick when disturbed!
Ya no apesta !! No more stinky
Don't waste your time. Terrible experience and we didn't even see any bioluminaries.
Pure Adventure has a wonderful kayak experience! Check them out.
Wear your swim suit!
You need to see this bioluminiscent water before u die
This is very cool. Take the kids and go late at night, It is very dark and a lot of paddling but you can do it. Great experience. Where water shoes and a swim suit.
Go on the boat tour first before u kayak, you get a more in depth tour. Try bio island tours. Great ppl.
Try to stay in either the front of the group or back to avoid kayak pile ups in the mangroves, you are not "really" allowed to swim in the bay but if you do it quietly they will not say anything.
Use KPR!!! Everything else is stupid. Great tour guides!! So friendly & the most beautiful thing you will do in your life. Tip your guides well!! They deserve it. (Especially Lucas, he's cute & single
I don't understand how they allow motor boats in the lagoon. They're just degrading this natural environment in exchange for money from "tours".
Be sure to bring your bug spray!!!
Once in the bay, dip your oar in real deep and swish it around to really get thay bioluminscent glow, so cool.
Kayak at night! Awesome
Splash around at night and see the water magically glow!
If you enjoyed the trip and experience great service, remember to show your appreciation with a tip. :D
Use lots of bug spray. Relax , the water while passing through the mangroves is only two feet deep. It doesn't sound scary kayaking at night once you know that :-)
Keep your distance between kayaks. Enjoy the magical experience!
Bio luminescent bays, be prepared to kayak in darkness!
Put bug spray all over and esp on the bottoms of your feet!! I won't post pics of my bug bites...but the trip is incredible!
Take a moonless swim
