The catamaran holds about 8-10 people besides the crew, which includes a biologist who explains what you're seeing and points out cool sights with his flashlight. Mario, the guide on our tour, was fabulous. We chose the catamaran rather than a kayak tour because we...More

This was an excellent experience! We took an 8:15 pm tour so the sky would be dark enough to see the glow in the water. Captain Jeff and biologist Mario were welcoming and friendly as was the check in experience when we were offered water,...More

The crew of the Bio Island boat are knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and very enjoyable. The captain grew up on the Bay and provided a great deal of information as well as a great experience. This was my second visit to the Bay with Bio Island...More

This was a wonderful tour, especially for families with young children! My husband was interested in kayaking but our 5 year old and I were a bit unsure. In the end, this was a perfect solution. The captain was kind and patient, not only with...More

Suenos Del Mar condos were a nice place to stay near Biosland, in Fajardo, PR. If you want to stay in Fajardo, the Brisas Del Mar is the place to stay.

This was so enjoyable. Being in a secure electric boat without fighting with over 1000 kayakers. Plus getting the history and pointing out iguanas in the trees made it a worthwhile adventure. Sticking your hands and putting pole in the water to see the bio...More

The entire experience was outstanding. Our guide not only was well informed about bay but his sky and star knowledge was amazing. We were on an electric boat the Kayak would not be our choice to experience this.

Tour was led by a knowledgeable, intelligent guide. The organisms don't glow like any photos you see in promotional ads. The ride felt a bit like the pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disney World with silly puns and surprises. It was fun. We spent...More

Hi, We would like to book a reservation on the electric boat at Fajardo bio bay, but we only see option to book kayaks on the Bio Island Co. website. How can we reserve electric boat? What is cost?

Does Bioisland tour offer transportation from San Juan? If not is it safe to drive back to San Juan after the tour since it is dark. Do you provide an El Yunque tour with this tour? We were trying to do the entire day-first the rainforest and then the motorboat bio tour. Thanks for your help.

We're planning a trip in January as well, I noticed there are three times to choose from. Which one did you guys do and would you recommend that time over the later times? There's a 6, 7:15, and an 8:30, or does it really matter which one as far as lighting goes?

I think the date matters more than the time. Make sure pick a date that has little moonlight.
