    What to Expect
    Receive an afternoon pickup from your San Juan hotel and head south to the coastal town of La Parguera, about 2-hours away. As you drive you’ll enjoy the views of the Puerto Rican countryside.

    When you arrive in this seaside city, board a boat for your evening experience on the water. Motor out to one of the scenic ‘cays’ (islands) located just offshore to watch the sun slip into the ocean.

    As the sky grows dark, continue to a nearby bioluminescent bay, watching in wonder as the water emits an eerie blue-like glow. It’s a sight that can only be seen in a handful of locations around the world. Then, slip into the glowing waters for a swim before you return to port for the drive back to San Juan and a drop-off at your hotel.

    This experience was amazing! Robert our tour guide was super friendly and helpful. Being basically by ourselves in the bay was truly incredible. Yes its a long ride from San Juan, but 100% worth the ride.

    My daughter and I visited Puerto Rico on a girls trip and she said swimming in the bay was one of the coolest things she had ever done. I agree with her! If you have the chance— do this! It was like holding starlight. Indescribable, really. Our driver and tour guide — Robert—

    My wife and I purchased this tour in July of 2019. I was questioning taking the tour due to the reviews of the uncomfortable "van" ride in the 2.5hrs between San Juan and La Parguera. I'm glad we ultimately decided to give it a try. Stephen, one of the Tour guides and driver
