A truly amazing experience. Seeing the water glow a neon blue when disturbed was just amazing. My wife and I got out a little bit from the group and saw a school of fish underwater...that was really cool. Looked like 40 or 50 little blue blurs darting in the water. Also saw a really big fish that left a big blue streak across the water. Very highly recommend this to anyone who goes to Puerto Rico!
The paddle wasn't too bad - just be ready for a little frustration because rarely in my life have I experienced dark (like the complete absence of any light at all!) like that. Couple that with some of the kayaks not having lights on the back made for an interesting trip back. Would this stop me from going back? Heck no! It was amazing! Best part of the trip!

Had a great time! Definitely one of the best things we did in Puerto Rico. The driver was on time and friendly, and the staff was knowledgeable and fun. We loved the kayaking, and having to do it in the dark was part of the adventure. You dont need to be an expert kayaker, but be prepared to get a bit of a workout, especially crossing the slightly choppy bay to the mangrove forest. The staff supplies bugspray, but the bugs werent all that bad. They are right that the bioluminescence (although very pretty!) does not show up on camera. Overall a very unique experience.
