The Bioluminescent Bay Puerto Rico, simply amazing!

Bioluminescent Bay Puerto Rico

Bioluminescence exists all over the world, but there are only a few  bays on our planet … and one of them is the bioluminescent bay Puerto Rico, located in Fajardo!

A bioluminescent bay is the result of a delicate ecosystem. Bioluminescent bays flourish when tiny single cells called dinoflagellates (pyrodinium bahamense) thrive in a protected environment. When agitated, organisms release energy in the form of light. In other words, they glow, emitting an ethereal neon green aura. And so it is with everything they touch: the fish, the hands, the oars of the boats, even the drops of water.

Getting to Laguna Grande in Fajardo is easy. You can drive to the boat ramp at the end of Route 987, where you will meet your tour guides. Excursions begin at dusk with a vigorous kayaking through a mangrove swamp, heading for a wide, tranquil bay. Suddenly he will begin to see that everything that moves in the water-the fish, the oar, and even the raindrops-shines with an ethereal beauty. Visiting our bioluminescent bay is an unforgettable experience that stands out among the many excursions through Puerto Rico.

If you want to spend the day in Fajardo, enjoy a morning in the Natural Reserve of Las Cabezas de San Juan, followed by some idyllic hours at Seven Seas beach, before your trip to the bioluminescent bay.

The bioluminescent bay Puerto Rico in Fajardo is only accessible through guided tours. Among the companies that offer these tours are AdvenTours, Yokahu Kayak Trips, Las Tortugas Adventures, Island Kayaking, Puerto Rico Kayaking and Enchanted Island Eco Tours.

The best time for this tour is when the night is cloudy and there is little or no moonlight. The darker the night, the brighter the water. When there is full moon it is not the best time to enjoy a bioluminescent bay.
