Enjoy the exclusivity on this amazing tour of the most preserved bio bay, so you can enjoy this unique natural phenomenon of nature. Take a boat ride to Vieques, home of the brightest and best-protected bio-luminescent bay. The world famous Mosquito Bay is home of the Pyrodinium Bahamense, the single-celled organism responsible for this amazing and magic glow. There are no words to fully describe how amazing the glow of the bio bay really is, it is truly a must-see phenomenon.

Vieques is undoubtedly the brightest and best bio-luminescent bay in the world. Tests have shown that the bio-luminescent bay in Vieques contains around 720,000 bioluminescent organisms per gallon of water. This concentration is so great that if you splash the water it will cause them to emit enough light so you could read the print on a book in the dead of night. If you dip your hands in the water, it will drip crystals of light like tiny sparkling diamonds.

Fun and well run

This tour was smooth from start to finish. Great email cand mmunication upfront to answer questions and set expectations. Ricky, our primary guide, was informative and funny. We had a perfect afternoon boat ride to Vieques and ideal (dark/cloudy) conditions to see the water light up on the kayak ride. It’s really like nothing else you’ve seen. Well timed restroom stops and good food provided made it for a really comfortable and enjoyable outing for our family of 4 (w/2 teens)
