We specialize in kayaking and snorkeling tours in the beautiful east coast of Puerto Rico. We do day and night tours. Our most impressive tour is the Bio Bay Kayaking Tour in Las Cabezas de San Juan Nature Reserve in Fajardo.

So similar to others I have split this review up into two pieces. The first is the overall experience of kayaking and the bio luminescent bay. That was good but not great. You arrive to a small marina on the edge of a mangrove forest...More

This review is separated into two sections. 1, the biobay kayaking at farjado actually deserves 4 stars. We enjoyed the kayaking through the mangroves and then into the lagoon. The experience was mystical and peaceful. I enjoyed it more for that than the bioluminescence. Read...More

My husband and I did this excursion last night. From our hotel, it was over an hour drive, which we were aware of. The group is separated into couples, so if you're doing this trip solo, beware of who you're partnered with. The kayaking is...More

This is a family owned and operated company. They run on island time and we loved every minute of it. We were never rushed or had to cut something short. If we started late we were able to stay late. The snacks they served between...More

My wife and I went hoping to see the bioluminescence bay. Unfortunately the moon was full so to see them we had to go under a tarp our guides provided. We could see them then but the best part was going back through the mangrove...More
