    A must do in viques

    Lula was amazing guide. She is so knowledgeable about every thing bio bay, and all the other questions I had about the island in general too. Even though I booked during almost full moon, she still found a way to show the bio luminous to us. If you can plan, plan it so that you do not book 5 days before or after the full moon to see the bio luminous at its fullest. I highly recommend you go with this company and she is amazing
    Great experience! Lulu...

    We had a great trip with Lulu! She's incredibly knowledgable, funny, and sweet. We learned a ton from her about the bioluminescent bay and astronomy, and we had some great laughs too! Would highly recommend.
    A Bucket list!! Love it🙌❤️

    Thanks for the experience!! But I recommend this at 9:00pm or later, at 7pm is too Early because with the moon is so difficult to see like magical as the foto you show in the internet pages!! But I love it because is my Beautiful Island!!

    Amazing experience, would definitely come back again great tour guide. Would recommend any day of the week
    Such an amazing experience
    Paola_D, Sep 2023
    The bioluminescent bay was absolutely breath taking and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny. She went into the science and history of the bay which I loved. We had a great time and would absolutely do it again! The only reason I removed a star was because the tour guide told us we had the option to just enjoy the experience and not take pictures because she would send us some photos she had after the tour. It's been two days and no photos :(. Otherwise an excellent experience and highly recommend!
    Great experience

    Great experience. I definitely recommend it. It was amazing seeing the bioluminescent bay. The kayak was see through. You could see light as paddled through in the darkness matching the stars above.
    Amazing tour!

    Cool experience

    The bioluminescence was cool, and our guide was very knowledgeable. The sulfur smell is only at the beginning of the trip, but you will get wet and muddy!
    Lived up to the hype
    Thomas_F, Aug 2023
    Lulu was very informative and fun. I might add if you have any back issues the ride from the main road to the bay is very bumpy. Other than that it was very well run

    Such an amazing experience! Thank you to Jan(?) and Gabriel for making this so fun, and for reaching us about the organisms in the water. It was really beautiful and we saw so many fish! Would definitely recommend. Thank you so much!
    Host Lulu and the bioluminescent experience was on point
    Prathikreddy_P, Aug 2023
    Our host Lulu was amazing. She explained everything thoroughly and was super nice and fun! I would recommend this 100%. The only improvement is to be a little more specific on the meeting point timing and contact # on Viator.
    Daniel_C, Aug 2023
    An amazing experience! any human should see with their own eyes, plus the tour guide gave us a show of some of the visible constellations, she was super friendly and informative, we learn so much and fell in love of this magic wonder of the world, we will come back with some friends for sure !
    Our guide John was the best!
    Julie_C, Aug 2023
    Our instructor John was very nice and attentive to our group. He made sure that all of us felt comfortable and safe in our kayaks. That night was very windy so it was difficult to paddle but he made sure that no one was left behind. He is very passionate about the bay and was eager to help us learn more. Would definitely recommend for others who want a special experience!
    Incredible Experience.
    Vincent_C, Aug 2023
    Jonny was a very good guide and they were very flexible with us during our trip. Appreciate all the work and how well he explained what we were seeing.
    Not much time on the water. I felt like we were gyped. The guide was very polite.
    Jeffrey_R, Aug 2023
    The guide took us a very short distance. Other companies were going out much further. I was very disappointed and wouldn't use this company again. They seem like they wanted to get back for the next tour.
