Lovely sunset, one of a kind experience

Our guide, Nicole, was great. We watched the sunset amidst the mangroves and then spent about 45 minutes swimming in the bioluminescent bay. The way the water sparkled was really neat to experience. I was glad they provided life jackets and pool noodles for flotation. The stars were amazing, and Nicole pointed out some constellations for us. We had a great time!

It was an incredible experience. the only thing that I can compare it to is the synchronized fireflies in Smokey Mountain National Park. A magical natural occurrence. You feel as if you have been sprinkled in fairy dust!! Nicole was awesome in explaining things and made everyone comfortable.

We had a great time. The sunset was gorgeous. After that we went to La Gata for a short visit, where we walked around the small island to take in the natural beauty and took a quick dip in the water. Then it was off to the bio bay. That was an amazing experience. It was like swimming through pixie dust. You could actually see the individual organisms close to the surface. Our captain was wonderful. In addition to being a wealth of knowledge about the dinoflagellates, he showed pointed out several constellations that we could see in the clear sky. If we make it back to PR, we will definitely take this tour again. Stop for some food before or after your tour! We went to Restaurante Puerto Parguera, and their empanadillas were fresh and delicious. The asopao de Pollo was also delicious.

It is truly a magical experience swimming in the bio bay specially when you have a clear sky to enjoy the stars and the bioluminescence We hope to see you again soon in your next trip to La Parguera to enjoy our tour again and more empanadillas.

The captain was so kind to care for the need of little kids

My little one is 5 years old and was scared to go close to the water. However she was also curious to see the natural wonder. The captain scooped a bottle of water and poured the water to her hands so she could see the sparkles flowing through her fingertips. She was amazed and loved that trip!

Thank you for your review! I'm glad your family had a great time and could experience the bioluminescence up close even with them being scared of the water. It is dark so it is natural for them to be a bit scared! Thank you for joining us and we hope to see you again in your next adventure to Puerto Rico!

Owned by a family and they were awesome. Went above and beyond to show us the bio luminescent light. But it's moon light dependent . So plan to visit on new moon days

We went on our honeymoon! What a great experience! Bring snorkel equipment in case the clouds cover the sunset. The bio bay was not blue like the pictures but was like litttle sparks underwater, also very helpful to have a snorkel mask.

Thank you for your review! Bringing along a snorkel mask is always a plus! It is a different way to experience the bioluminescent bay underwater. I'm glad you had a great time and we hope to see you next time to catch a better sunset in Parguera!

Take off, swimming , the sun set colors and watching my sisters enjoying the experience I'm the youngest of 5 , my older sisters are sort of physically limited . I'm glad I was able to find something they could enjoy doing.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
I'm glad your sister had a good time on your private tour with our captain, we tried to accommodate you as best as we could on our most easily accessible boat for your groups comfort. We hope to see you again so you can jump in and swim the bio bay!

Great tour with knowledgeable guide!

Great experience! The tour was small (our group of 4 plus 2 others). The tour guide took us to a secluded bay where he knew the bioluminescence was seasonal and particularly bright that evening. It was only our boat and the other boat from the tour company there - all the other tours in the area went to a different bay. The tour guide was wonderful as well. He provided information about the bay and the bioluminescence, how to take pictures, recommendations for restaurants, pointed out constellations, etc. Couldn't have been better!
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
Thank you for your review! We try to find the best spot to really see the bay shine. Unfortunately it is a seasonal spot, and only a handful of times we can use that bay. But I'm glad we were able to share it with you and the experience. We hope to see you again in your next adventure to Puerto Rico!

Our captain was very knowledgeable about the area. It was such a small and personal experience and I am glad that we chose this tour over the much larger cruise!!

One of a kind experience. It was like we had natural led lights surrounding us when we swam. Angel was super patient with our group. Great tour, great experience, will be back when we visit Puerto Rico again.
