Bioluminescent Bay Encounter
Enjoy this one of a kind experience, nighttime kayaking in Mosquito Bay, at one of the world’s brightest Bioluminescent Bays.
From the small fishing village of Esperanza, you will take a short bus ride to Mosquito Bay where you are met by your guides. They will provide a thorough pre-training covering all aspects of the tour and operation of the kayaks. Once inside your double kayaks and under the blanket of night sky, you will watch the sparkling swirls of water created by the paddles’ flow through the water and search for streaks of light created by darting fish around you. Continue paddling across the bay learning about the mangrove forests, wildlife that inhabits the area and the marine life that uses the lagoon as their sanctuary. Learn what gives the water its mysterious light and the different ecosystems found in the area. Tiny organisms known as dinoflagellates create the mysterious blue-green light. A trip into the bay is a magical and educational experience not to be missed when in Vieques in the evening.
