Then we Visit Luquillo Beach, one of our Blue Star rated beaches with beautiful views and great food on the beach. Last stop kayaking in the Bioluminescent Bay at sunset at one of the most amazing sights in the world with the glowing waters and incredibly serene spots. Hidden along the Caribbean coast is one of the most spectacular Bioluminescent Bays or Phosphorescent Bays in the world. The mysterious blue-green light is created by micro-organisms (dinoflagellates) which thrive in an environment uniquely suited to their needs. A trip into the bay is a magical experience. Fish flash by in dark water, and swimming is like floating through a glow in the dark picture.
The phosphorescence is actually bioluminescence generated by microscopic organisms in the water. It is believed to be part of a natural defense system triggered by the movement of predators. Many scientists believe the tiny organisms light up so their predators can see more desirable prey – and thus leave them alone. The phenomenon occurs sparadically in warm seas around the world, but Puerto Rico is one of the only places on the planet where you can depend on it every evening. The three most spectacular bays are La Parguera, Mosquito Bay and in Fajardo. We can arrange kayaking trips in any of these locations.
