Hard pass
Shelton_F, Mar 2023
This was very underwhelming. You could barely anything in the river. If you're looking to bioluminescence, I would take a hard pass on this. But the the kayaking was nice. This was so pretty far from where we stayed, so I definitely wouldn't do it again
Response from Host, Jul 2023
We are, however, glad to hear that you enjoyed the kayaking aspect of the excursion. Kayaking can indeed be a peaceful and enjoyable activity, providing an opportunity to immerse oneself in the natural surroundings. While we do our best to showcase the natural wonder of bioluminescence, we understand that it can vary from time to time due to several factors, including weather conditions and the natural cycles of the organisms.
Not much luminescence on our trip!
Michele_M, Mar 2022
All of the crew members were fabulous. Ashley was especially wonderful. We had to put a tarp over our kayak to see the little amount of luminescence. I just expected a little more, but the crew did a great job.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Thank you for sharing your feedback on your recent bioluminescence excursion with us. We are thrilled to hear that you had a positive experience with our crew members, especially with Ashley. Providing excellent service and creating wonderful memories for our guests is what we strive for, and we're delighted that our team could make your time with us enjoyable. At the same time, we understand your expectations for a more prominent bioluminescence display, and we apologize that the luminescence was not as abundant as you had hoped. Bioluminescence can be influenced by various natural factors, and it can vary from time to time, which may have affected the visibility during your tour. We appreciate your understanding and patience regarding the situation. It's heartening to hear that despite the limited luminescence, our crew's efforts made the experience enjoyable for you. They work hard to ensure that our guests have a memorable and pleasant time during the excursion.
Rainy surprise! Unforgettable experience.

What a unique experience! It had rained all day so I was so surprised when the trip went on without a hitch! We got wet, but paddling through the mangroves at night and seeing the bioluminescence was unforgettable and I didn’t notice anything but the awe of the entire experience. DO IT!!
Excelent service.

New experience

Fun time and a unique experience paddling through the trees in the darkness of the canopy. Didn’t really get to fully appreciate the bioluminescent bay due to clear sky’s, but our guides did their best with a tarp.
Fabulous time

The guides were helpful and very interactive. Had lot's of fun. Kenneth and Thalia were awesome! Thalia asked Kenneth to sing Brujeria which he forgot and I helped remind him.by swinging the chorus! Amazing time!
This is the company you pick

Very nice people made sure we got there and were well taken care of, even pointed out an iguana hanging out in the trees above
Don't go if the moon is out
Kayla_S, Mar 2020
We went on a night with a little over a half moon -- definitely wasn't as amazing as others who recommended the tour to us said. Maybe it would be worth it on a completely dark night. They had a tarp to help block out the light, but it still wasn't that impressive. We were already in the area from a hiking trip, but I wouldn't go out of my way if I had only been in San Juan to go. The guides were great though!
Guides are great but bay is meh

Guides were personable and great, they did their best to help everyone regardless of skill level. The bioluminescent bay itself is really underwhelming.
