“Great trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2012

Getting this trip set up was a little difficult. Their website is currently down (in the process of revamping), and email communication was not always returned as quickly as one would hope. However, once we were able to speak on the phone, things got arranged just fine. We finally got our trip squared away, and had a great time. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The kayaking was at an easy/relaxed pace, and it was fun to see the water glow as we put our hands or kayak paddles into the water. It is my understanding that the bio bay in Fajardo is better...and the location in Vieques is "the best"...however, if you are already on the west side of Puerto Rico, then this is certainly a trip worth doing. After the trip, head over to Moon's in Parguera for a great tapas dinner.

I have been visiting La Parguera for years and Jose taught me things I didn't know about this amazing natural preserve. Must see and do when you visit!

“A night to remember!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2012

Hi, a very wonderful kayak excursion... after talking with Jose on his cell phone, we booked a bio-tour for the next night. we where lucky to be alone with him me and my boyfriend. The tour is very safe and adventures at the same time. doing kayak at night his very fun. a two hour trip with Jose who's knowledge is on top!!! we learned a lot and had a great time with this friendly guide.
Don't book with a big tour cie or a boat tour... kayak is the best and Jose also !! ;-))

“Jose is awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2012

My girlfriend and I and another couple were staying in Rincon, PR. After trying to contact another bio bay kayak tour group unsuccessfully we ran across Excursiones Ecoboriken.

Jose stood out from the start as he contacted us back almost immediately and was very professional and courteous. He went so far as to text us directions for our trip down to La Parguera which were very helpful.

We went for a 7:30 night tour and met Jose as expected at a small launch point right off of a road. As others have mentioned, his equipment is in great shape. Jose provided head lamps, paddles, life vests and kayaks in addition to providing a dry bag to store valuables in during the tour.

The tour itself is excellent because of Jose's intimate knowledge of the area. It's an absolutely engaging experience to say the least. Ask a question and Jose has an answer and probably an interesting story to go along with it. We unfortunately picked a night with an almost full moon which obscures some of the bio-luminescent life, but we got to see some interesting creatures like starfish and sea cucumbers. If you're brave, you even have the option of swimming in one of the lagoons; I personally forewent this option.

I really can't say enough good things about this tour. It was definitely a highlight of our week long stay in PR. Do not hesitate to take this tour. It is well worth it!

“One of the best of...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

Jose is fun, interesting and leads a great adventure for all. it was the perfect combo of challenging, safe and adventure for our family. We felt a great connection to him and Puerto Rico through his accounts of nature, Eco tourism and environmental issues. We learned so much and got a good workout besides!
