Puerto Rico Kayaking: Laguna Grande Bio Bay

Get ready for a magical experience!

Kayaking through one of Puerto Rico’s bioluminescent bays will mesmerize you. It will also exercise you.

The island has three bioluminescence bays, or bio bays, which are bodies of water containing millions of micro-organisms called dinoflagellates that glow in the dark when agitated. This natural wonder is best seen on dark or moonless (or nearly moonless) warm nights.

One of the most popular bio-bay kayak tours will take you to the Laguna Grande bioluminescent bay in Fajardo, on the island’s northeast side about one hour from San Juan.

You will paddle through mangroves and narrow canals in almost total darkness (if you take the evening tour, which is better for observing the bioluminescence) to make it to the phenomenal lagoon. The kayaking alone is fun, and the fantastic setting takes the experience to another level.

Puerto Rico kayaking is a well developed sector of the island’s tourism industry, with several kayak tour operators offering guided bio-bay kayak tours. All of the kayak tour operators provide mandatory life jackets to wear and brief lessons on how to kayak. They are very experienced and friendly, so you will be in good hands.

Among the companies offering bio-bay kayak tours are Kayaking Puerto Rico, Eco Adventure and Pure Adventure. They recommend you bring a towel, change of clothes and a camera. Do call ahead to reserve a space and get details about their check-in times and weight limits.
