  • "I do not recommend going with a kayak partner that cannot help row as on the way back you have to fight the current and its pitch black." See review
  • "Definitely bring water shoes and be prepared for a workout!!" See review
  • "Also if you’re afraid of the dark, take an earlier tour to at least have daylight on your way in under the trees, and then darkness on the way back." See review

The engaging, friendly guides were what made this tour worth it. They were just ... cool people. It was a full moon, but the guides still made sure we can see the bioluminescence by rolling a tarp/canopy over us when we parked our kayaks in the lagoon. And irregardless, it was just nice to be out on the water at night.

Friendly, knowledgeable crew (especially Sandra!) and great tour of mangroves and lagoon. Even though the bioluminescence wasn't as plenty as it was a few years back, kayaking at dusk into the night under the stars was a beautiful adventure.

The tour guides were very friendly. We went at 8 pm and it was very dark. If you go earlier, you can see more of the scenery but the bioluminesence won't be as bright.

Awesome but dangerous at times
Matthew_F
, Apr 2022
It was awesome to see the bioluminescence but the kayak trip from the bay back to the launch point in the dark of night was borderline dangerous. Meeting kayaks going the opposite direction and dodging branches that you can’t see isn’t much fun. I realize they want to keep it as dark as possible because they want you to see the bioluminescence as you paddle back but I’d be willing to sacrifice that in exchange a few strategically places solar lights in the bends of the canal and near obstacles. Solar lights are cheap and can be placed anywhere. Please consider it for safety.

Go for the kayaking and guides, bioluminescence is meh

Very little bioluminescence. It only happens in pure dark when you disturb the water and then it’s barely there. Nice kayak trip though, and the guides we’re wonderful.

Manage expectation

The team dis grat with check in and the safety briefing. Sandra check us in and did great. Javier, Anthony, Enrique, and Yadie did a great job with guiding the tour and providing information about the environment. While we were waiting for the sunset, we were entertained and not eaten by mosquitoes (make sure you bring strong bug spray). The real issue is the expectation management of seeing the biolumisicent. There is a lot of light pollution in that area due to the resort lights. We had to use a tarp to make it dark enough just to see a little of it. The pictures on the website made it seem that the water will be lighting up all around us. We left for the bay as the sun was coming down so maybe if we left at night it would have been better.

Find another tour.. never go with a full moon either.

Where to begin... we were extremely excited to go on this tour but it did not go well from start to finish. First off, the sign to find the place is not noticeable at all while driving in a new area, if you have never been there before, you will not find it on your first go around. It says Kayak Village, and the directions via GPS takes you to Kayak village however, this tour is just before you get to the open area where the Kayaks are in Kayak Village. If you go down near a place called Mia's you are too far. Its' behind a gated fence and the sign is super small. We almost missed the tour do to that, or so we thought because others couldnt find it as well so the whole tour was delayed. The lady working the desk there said shes had complaints about it but the owner doesnt make changes. He also, was VERY unfriendly. It's just a dollar for them, not an experience for their customers. Once there, there is a 5 min explanation on how to Kayak, if you've never done it, its a learning curve and it wont be very easy to begin with. Small kids should not come along if they cant help steer the boat especially if you've never done it. As far as the experience with the bay. It doesnt look at all like the photos, its more like, putting your hand in water and seeing fire flies in there. That's it, nothing special at all. The guy actually told us, the photos online are photoshopped that we shouldnt believe the internet. Noted. we will never do this tour again and I don't recommend it to anyone. I felt it was a waste of 300.00 plus time effort to get there. We could have done something else. If there is a full moon, half moon, or any lighting you dont even see the water fire flies.. thats what I'm calling them because that is what they seemed like.

We had a lot of fun. The moon was bright but the guides have a great work around with a canopy. The kayaking was a fun adventure in the dark.

This was a great, once in a lifetime trip. The kayaking portion through the mangroves was beautiful and I’m glad we did the 6pm tour to see it during the light. The guides were patient with those that didn’t know how to steer the kayaks well and though we had a full moon, we were able to see the sparkle underneath. I would do this again and recommend to plan a trip around a new moon.

Hi Crystal_L, Thanks for your nice review. The mangrove channel is indeed pretty cool, and I'm glad that you got to see it all during our early tour. Thank you for coming! Cordially, Yolanda Ramos PURE ADVENTURE

My family of 4 (boys ages 7,9) did the 8pm tour. We weee advised to get there early as parking is limited and a lot of tours leave from Kayak Village. I had read you will get wet, but beware that this actually should read: You wade into the water to about upper thigh depth to get to Kayaks. We had three guides, they were great. The channel that you kayak thru has some narrow and high traffic (other kayak groups) but guides were good with giving anyone a nudge or kayak tow out of mangroves, if needed. Patience with yourself and the group, given different skill levels. It was almost full moon, and the tarp in the bay was necessary, but we saw it! It was a lovely adventure for our family, and hopefully a lifetime memory! Bring full change of clothes, and towel. Bug spray.
