Full description
The tour begins with pickup from your accommodation in either San Juan or Ponce and travels to the traditional fishing village of La Parguera. Spend some free time exploring La Parguera, shop for souvenirs, and mingle with the locals going about their day. After your free time, head down to the dock where your friendly captain, and the day’s adventure, awaits.

Climb aboard one of the most exclusive boats in the harbor and set sail towards a nearby sandbar. As you sail, make the most of the boat's onboard open bar and sip a refreshing drink while admiring the scenic view. Upon arrival, chill out on the beach and soak up the glorious Puerto Rican sunshine then take a stroll along the picturesque boardwalk. As evening draws near, watch the sunset across the ocean before dining a delicious dinner of fresh fish, chicken, or vegetable tacos at a local restaurant.

After dinner, and once night has fallen, cruise to the bioluminescent bay where you will be amazed by the glowing landscape that awaits. At the bay, jump in the water to really experience this unique phenomenon, which is a true feast for the eyes. Enjoy some free time to swim and play in the water and admire the striking glow of the microorganisms that surround you. At the end of an unforgettable day, dry off on the boat then sit back and relax on the journey to your accommodation.
