Great experience
Oct 2021 • Couples
Even though we were not able to see much because of the weather we had a great time. The hostess was very informative and our leader was very knowledgeable. I really appreciated having someone in the front, middle, and back. The trip was not very difficult to do coming from someone that had never kayaked before. They also apologized for the weather and even gave a partial refund even though they didn’t have to since weather is unpredictable.

Bucket list - CHECK
Sep 2021
The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. We did the late night kayak tour. It was such a great time going through the mangroves in near pitch-black conditions. The only light you see is the chemlight on the kayak in front of you. It added to the mystique and awesomeness! Once we arrived in the bay, we were given instructions on how to see the bioluminescence. That part was a bit disappointing. It wasn't as bright as we had hoped for. This is no fault of Kayaking Puerto Rico. The moon was out and too bright. We still managed to see it under the tarp and when going through the mangroves. Such a sight to see. Overall, we'd do this again during the time of year when it's the brightest.
