      About this San Juan tour

      Your tour will start at sunset in the small fishing village of Las Croabas, where you’ll meet your friendly guide. They’ll be ready for you with all the necessary gear needed on this kayaking tour and offer you brief safety regulations, disclaimers, and an orientation of the activity. Then, the guide will give each group a complete kayak “101 Safety” training, which will cover all aspects of the tour and the operation of the kayaks, before supplying everyone with illuminating equipment. 

      Begin your experience across a small fisherman’s harbor to the entrance of Las Cabezas de San Juan Reserve. You’ll paddle through a mystical channel that leads to a peaceful place where the mangroves create natural tunnels amid some of the best wildlife and scenery. After a 25 to 30 minute paddle through the channel, your guide will make a brief stop and offer commentary on the mangroves, surrounding wildlife, the Bioluminescence organisms that make the lagoon glow, and other information regarding nearby ecosystems. 

      Then, its times to enter Laguna Grande, or Large Lagoon, where you’ll paddle along the edge of the mangrove forest as you watch the stroke of each paddle light up a bioluminescent blue-green/white-green. Witness a natural light show as fish turn into shooting stars when they swim through a thick concentration of Dinoflagellate or marine plankton. This experience is sure to be one of the top best things you’ll ever see!

      After the lightshow spectacle aboard your kayak, you’ll reach a resting point where beautiful views of the rainforest and the Fajardo Lighthouse will complement the evening. Your tour will then continue to Bird Island. Here, view a variety of birds that call this area their home, before paddling back to the departure site.
