The staff was fantastic for so many reasons! They made the registration process quite simple; the kayaking instructions were quick but thorough; they were very helpful in providing feedback when people struggled; they educated us on the bioluminescence; and they were laid back and funny. Thank you to Kenny and the crew for an unforgettable experience!

The paddle in to the bay was beautiful and serene. It was definitely a lot of work but very well worth it.

We got a last minute change request done from the 8:45pm to the 6:45pm and was notified around 5pm. That was a little risky, but we got there early before 6:15pm check in. I did not get to bring my dry bag, but it was a good thing we were already had our swimsuits from being in the rain forest earlier that day. However, we definitely did not need to rush and would have been fine if we got there at 6:35pm. The tour was nice overall. Be prepared to be in gross water with the smell of sulfur when you get in and out of your kayaks. It is part of Fajardo. They said it was natural. When we got in the bay area, they gave us a tarp to put over our heads so we could see the bioluminescent. A normal camera from your phone will not be able to capture it. Be prepared to get wet from the waist down. There are showers to clean off after. Overall, my friends and I enjoy seeing it and kayaking. It was a fun experience. The tour guys were nice and helpful too.

Relaxed, well-organized, smooth, beautiful, and enjoyable

The entire operation was well organized and smooth. The actual bioluminescence was different from what I expected. It's not a constant "glow;" rather, the plankton sparkle/flicker in response to a perceived threat. It's very clearly visible under the tarp they provide. The main instructor, Daniel, was informative, enthusiastic, and welcoming. This is not strenuous or particularly athletic; if you're looking for a more physically demanding adventure, there are other tours through parts of the open ocean (I personally had wanted a bit more action with the kayaking, but my friends were nervous about going for their first time, and this was a very approachable introduction). Best to go later at night when it's darkest. If you can, pick a night with a new moon. The stars were beautiful, and kayaking out through the mangrove was a nice, relaxing experience on its own.
