Bioluminescent Kayak Adventure from San Juan

In Puerto Rico, your evening doesn't end when the sun goes down! Take part in an exciting kayak adventure on a bioluminescent bay not far from San Juan and be amazed as the water glistens and sparkles underneath you! When you brush your paddles or hands through the water, the plankton lights up a fluorescent color, making your kayak adventure a truly magical experience.Puerto Rico is by far the best country to experience a bioluminescent adventure. There are only 5 lagoons in the world which have glistening waters and Puerto Rico is home to 3 of them! Begin kayaking at sunset and enjoy picturesque views of the Fajardo area. As the sun goes down, begin paddling towards the fascinating lagoon at Las Cabezas de San Juan Reserve for your nighttime adventure. Under the blanket of the night sky and the historical lighthouse of Fajardo, you can touch run your fingers through the water and swim in the waters lagoon that glows right before your eyes! Come experience a real adventure which that will leave you breathless!Important note: Unfortunately due to natural causes the bioluminescence is glowing very inconsistent at this time. Natural debris carried by the current may affect visibility.  When there is a Full Moon the glow effect is also affected. In order to improve the visibility, guides may use black tarps to cover the kayaks and riders; this promotes darkness and provides a greater appreciation of the microorganisms. Guests will still be able to enjoy the rest of the experience including the paddling lesson, kayaking through the mangrove channel and the observation at Laguna Grande, which is a wonderful experience, but expectations need to be clear as the glow may be very low and we want to avoid any claims. This is a natural reserve and some conditions caused by nature can’t be controlled
