“Bioluminescence Bay Kayak Adventure”

Tour includes double kayaks, lifejackets, refreshments and two to three guides depending on group size.  Don’t let your day end when the sun goes down!  We offer relaxing kayak tours at sunset that lead to the fascinating Laguna Grande in the town of Fajardo located on the Northeast corner of the island!  Under a blanket of the night sky and the historical lighthouse of Fajardo, you can touch the waters that glow with Bioluminescence Organisms!

“Responsible Marketing”

Note:  That as of April, 2007 “No Swimming” is permitted in Laguna Grande under Regalement 8013 of the Department of Natural Resources.  Also note that since November, 2007 the Department of Natural Resources has appointed nine licensed outfitters for kayak tours within Laguna Grande.  All hold different nightly total for guest capacity, with this said the area is saturated, it would be advised that if your vacation plans allow it is best to book Monday through Thursday as traffic in the area is less. Friday & Saturday are packed, although the adventure is still wonderful be prepared to deal with large groups of people as well as local traffic in the area.  
    
The activity will start at sunset in the small fishing village of Las Croabas, here you will meet the friendly staff of Enchanted Island Eco Tours Inc. kayak adventure team.  They will be set-up with all needed gear which will include, Double kayaks, Backrest, Paddles with leashes, PFD’s (Lifejackets) and two to three Kayak Guides with all needed safety equipment, lights and refreshments.  The activity will start with botanical insect repellent, waiver orientation and signing.  Then the lead Guide will give each group a complete kayak “101 Safety” training, which will cover all aspects of the tour and the operation of their kayaks then guides will start lifejacket and light disbursement!  

At this point our tour will start, your group will be lead across a small fisherman’s cove to the entrance of Las Cabezas de San Juan Reserve here they will enter a mystical channel that leads to a peaceful place where the mangroves create natural tunnels and the sights and sounds of wildlife surround you.  Along this 25 to 30 minute paddle through the channel your lead guide will be stopping once in the lagoon to give commentary on the following points of interest:

* Mangrove forest and the different species.
* Bird life that inhabits the area.
* Aquatic marine life that uses the lagoon as an estuary.
* Information on the Bioluminescence organism.
* History on the lighthouse.
* Insight on seven of eight ecosystems found in the area.

At this point we will enter the lagoon called Laguna Grande, (large Lagoon) here we will paddle along the edge of the mangrove forest as we watch the stroke of each paddle light up a bioluminescent blue-green and encounter fish that look like shooting stars as they swim through the thick concentration of  “Pyrodinium Bahamense” a species of “Dinoflagellate”! 

This will lead the group to our break point where beautiful views of the Rainforest and the lighthouse of Fajardo accompany interpretation of the natural area and good conversations.  At this point we will be about 1 hour into our tour, the interpretation has ended and our group is now in route to “Bird Island” to view many birds that roust here at night!  Once quietly rounding the small island we will start our return to the departure site, this will take about 30 to 45 minutes.  

Tour duration is 1:45 – 2:00 hours in water with 45 minutes of pre-bus and waiver orientation - pre-ride (kayak – 101) safety training and fifteen minutes once back on shore for snacks, cold water and comment sheets for a total of 3 hours.)
