Holbox: Stars and Bioluminescent Marine Life Kayaking Tour

1. Holbox: Stars and Bioluminescent Marine Life Kayaking Tour

Cruise along the coast of Holbox by kayak while observing constellations and shooting stars. Swim in the water and enjoy the unique experience of seeing neon-blue bioluminescent plankton up close. Be picked up from the comfort of your accommodation in downtown Holbox and relax on the drive to the launching point for your tour. Get set up with your high-quality kayaking gear before embarking on your nighttime adventure. Glide over the water and listen to the sound of the water lapping the shore. Look up to see the stars in this area where the light pollution is low and see the stars reflecting off the water. Learn about the constellations you see, spot your own zodiac constellation depending on the month, and see 3-5 planets. Listen as your guide tells you about the local ecosystem before reaching the sandbanks and going for a dip in the sea. Particularly in the spring and summer, witness the bioluminescent plankton glow as it senses your movement in the water. Marvel as this outlines your body with a magic light. Return to your accommodation in downtown Holbox at the end of your tour.

What people are saying about Isla Holbox

Gorgeous excursion. The organizers came to pick us up at the point indicated, we sailed along the beach in the kayaks and waited for the moon to go down, our guide showed us the constellations and told us about the marine fauna of Holbox, it was very interesting. As soon as the moon went down we saw the luminescence, what a sight! A very good mix of sport and knowledge of nature. We were driven back to our hotel at the end.

Wau! What a beautiful moment. The sky from the water is amazing. Omer helped me a lot while I was struggling with the kayak so do not worry, you are in good hands. Bioluminescence was not like in pictures :p but fair enough. I had a superb moment Thank you!

Great experience and learned a lot. The excursion was very exciting and the bioluminescence and the great constellation were very impressive. Our toddler loved it too. Definitely a top recommendation.

Great tour!! We saw bioluminescence and star constellations- it was really magical. We went on a new moon which meant there was even less light pollution than normal. Would recommend

Not exactly the bioluminescence you see on the internet photos but an unforgettable and unique experience all the same. Our guide even made the effort to speak to us in French!
