I did both the Bio Bay and Blue Beach (Playa la chiva) snorkeling tours with Abe's and had a really great time. The snorkeling tour was amazing and I would highly recommend it! I actually wish I had booked another snorkeling tour with Abe's! The Bio Bay tour was good too, however, I felt it was a bit overbooked and... More

Our trip to the BioBay was a magical experience. The air temperature was perfect and the moon phase was close to ideal (waxing crescent). Our tour guide STEVE was knowledgeable, professional and very entertaining. He outlined the safety procedures, provided a kayaking tutorial and offered a cursory explanation of bioluminescence before we even boarded the bus for the bay. He... More

I was on the ball for everything for our trip, except booking a bio bay tour. When I finally remembered (the Monday before our weekend trip to Vieques), most tours were full. Abe's had room, so I booked it! It was a new moon, so perfect conditions for the bio bay to be glowing. Although not quite what I expected... More

This was the highlight of our trip to San Juan , Culebra and Vieques! Our guide Cally was knowledgeable, entertaining and very cool. We did the all day tour with kayaking, snorkeling and then the bio bay. It was worth every penny.

The tour guide was fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed his commentary and guide through the bio bay! We met Abe and he is great! His store is awesome too. It has everything you need and may have left behind!

3 hour trip (including van ride to the spot). We drove to blue beach and they had kayaks waiting for us. ~15 minute kayak to an island where we snorkeled. The reef has great fish and coral. Our guide Coleena was pleasant and informative.

This is a very belated review from our March 2015 visit to Vieques. We thoroughly enjoyed our Bio Bay tour. The guide was knowledgeable and did a fantastic job. For my husband and I, it was our first ever Bio Bay tour and can't wait to do it again. Our two teenaged daughters had visited another bioluminescent bay near San... More

We enjoyed Abe's tour very much. There is a reason that they lead some of the largest groups to the BioBay. The tour guides are very knowledge and funny. Our tour guide's name was Steven. He did a great job keeping our ~40 person group together. Even though the group was large, we were able to explore the bay on... More

Would definitely recommend Abe's and the bio bay tour! Steve was awesome and ridiculously knowledgeable. Request him if you can, he has such an extensive grasp of information-about the bay, island, the stars you see in the dark sky and so much more. This is a must do, go and enjoy the tour and the incredible bay!! Disclaimer though-do not... More
