Awesome Tour
NishanthNagesh_B

Located perfectly at the entrance of the mangrove, saves you the effort of not having to kayak across strong currents. The tour was fun and informative, with the guides giving clear instructions to navigate through the mangroves.

Really nice, fun, and knowledgeable guides who took us through the channel into the protected bay where we got to see the flagellates. They had a lot of great info, stories, and passion for the area that showed. Big props to Carlos for being funny and making the journey enjoyable.

Fabulous Time

Had a fabulous time last night at Bio Bay Tour! Rafael and the crew were awesome. The kayak through Mangrove Forrest was a one of a kind experience. Although weather wasn’t cooperative to see the full extent of the plankton, the crew was prepared with a tarp to ensure we had a great experience! Would definitely love to bring the entire family back. Thanks so much guys!

Cool trip. Kayaking through the mangroves and into the lagoon is really fun. Talia was a fantastic guide and very helpful with my husband who was a little leery about doing the trip. Better to go when the moon is not at its apex. The whole crew was very helpful and friendly.

Night Kayak

The trip kayaking to Laguna Grande Bay was incredible! Starting through the mangroves was a thrilling adventure and it seemed surreal! The bay was beautiful by moonlight. Unfortunately we couldn’t see the bioluminescence too well because there had recently been too much rain. We did get to see it under the dark tarp, but it looked nothing like Instagram. Thank you Taleia, and AJ for a great experience!

The crew was very fun. Kayaking in the dark was fun but somewhat stressful as we could not clearly see what was around us. We also did not see much bioluminescence

Fun experience
Andre_E

We booked our trip with the family and were excited about the experience. Communication leading up to the event was great! The time was an hour later than I had previously booked but they told us in advance. The guides were very friendly especially Emily. And the gentlemen checking us in werefriendly and really nice. There were a lot of people in our group and also with the other companies that were at the bay. (10 groups total which made the kayaking very crowded and it was difficult not to crash into other boats in the pitch black. The experience overall was good but I would have preferred less people and it also would have been helpful to have more education about kayaking before we boarded the trip. Knowing how to navigate the with the crowds would have been a better experience. The flagellates were very hard to see and that was a bit disappointing too but no fault to the tour company. Just lower your expectations about seeing the glow in the water.

The kayaking through the canopy of trees was thrilling. I loved the animal sounds and darkness. Totally worth the trip.

Was a wonderful experience kayaking at night under the moon and stars! Bioluminescent bay was a little disappointing I guess because I was expecting more sparkle from the water but the overall trip was exceptional

Tour guides were great!!!Enjoyed the kayaking but the experience was overrated. Perhaps it was the lighting of the night but we didn't see much bioluminescence. Watch out for the trees! You will absolutely not be able to take any pictures!

Really amazing to see the glowing water! We had a great trip. Well worth it. The moon was just a sliver so we had a dark night. Bring mosquito repellant.

Chaos in the Channel
Wendy_H
, Apr 2021
The bio luminescent bay was amazing. However, the kayaking and organization of the tour operator wasn’t great. We encountered many other kayakers going the opposite direction through a narrow channel in the dark without any warning. It was very chaotic and boats were hitting each other. The bay was super interesting but we only received a little information and then we sat in the bay for a while with no additional interaction or direction from the guides. We weren’t sure if they were just waiting long enough to have the tour be a certain length of time.

Kayaking through the mangroves

The kayaking to the lagoon itself was fun. It was cool going through the mangroves. The luminescence itself was a little bit of a let down.

Although kayaking was a little difficult because of the amount of trees, I would definitely do this again. The views were breathtaking and the experience in all was amazing. Would highly recommend to others.

Not worth the trouble

I would not recommend going at night.. yes you can see the green water then but it is too dark to see when you are kayaking next to branches and other kayaks. We had a group of 11 and the tour guide could not handle giving clear directions to help us know what to do

Guide was too fast; hit by a branch and knocked off my kayak, way more wet than they informed us. The guide rushed through the tour and barely waited for others in our group
icon Response from Host , Apr 2021
Yes, you will get wet in a kayaking activity. Is especially important to pay attention to the instructions in this Night Kayaking. This tour is not for everybody, just like outdoor recreation is not from everybody. We go as fast as the slowest kayak. We have a guide leading the group, another guide in the middle of the group and a backup guide making sure no one left behind. We also have runners going back and forth inside the lead guide and the backup guide perimeter (do not try to follow them, follow the lead guide).

Beautiful experience, Professional instructors But quite disappointed because they took photos and told us they would send them to us, but I haven’t heard back from them even after several texts! They should not have promised!
