Bioluminescent Bay Kayak Adventure Tour from San Juan

Bioluminescent Bay Kayak Adventure Tour from San Juan

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 a two seater kayak along with the companionship of the amazing tour guides. 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 (like fireflies)! Explore these amazing organisms up close as our 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.
After spending an approximate 30 minutes at the bay, we will head back thru the same mangrove channel we came in.

Stop At: Laguna Grande, Las Cabezas de San Juan Nature Reserve, Fajardo 00738 Puerto Rico

Our famous two-hour bio bay kayak tour includes interesting interpretations of the reserve’s fragile ecology, star constellations, and a fascinating encounter with billions of bioluminescent organisms.

Watch how every stroke of your paddle leaves behind a glowing swirl of blue light and fish light up their path like shooting stars in the water. The adventure to Laguna Grande can only be described as magical, creating memories that will last a lifetime!

In order to best appreciate the bioluminescent phenomena, our tours run at sunset and early evening and it can get quite dark in the mangrove canal. Please be aware of this if you are afraid of darkness, a first-time kayaker, or have small kids.

Please keep in mind that this tour takes place in a natural environment and that the bioluminescent phenomenon, although rare, can be seen year-round. The intensity of brightness is unpredictable and can vary.

Duration: 2 hours
