Cool Place!

We were unsure if we would see a lot but it was amazing, especially in the middle of the bay. Like bits of glitter in the water!

Take the time and visit this place. Your only real access is through a tour company and kayak (no swimming is allowed in the bay, and your guide can tell you why!) and it is worth the time and money to do this. It is amazing to see this bay in action and it is ever so peaceful out on... More

This is such a neat experience. We went with Bieque Eco Trips Erickson. They put two people in each canoe, and you paddle into the bay together.

We were granted a clear dark night and the bay did not disappoint. This is the brightest bioluminescent bay of the 7 in the world. It's a must do.

I enjoyed this well-organized tour. The planktons were amazing! Our tour guides were very considerate, having prepared sufficient insect repellent for everyone. They offered excellent information in both English and Spanish. The entire experience was smooth and pleasant.

There could have been a lot of factors for not getting a awesome experience. There was almost a full moon, the water was too cool, or too little rain, or too much in previous months. We did see some of the luminescence from the microorganisms but not what was expected .
