Τι θα κάνετε

This kayak experience is not to be missed. What appears to be normal dark water, will light up WHEN YOU TOUCH IT.
As the night grows dark, we'll step into our comfortable kayaks and get ready for a personal encounter with this remarkable phenomenon. We will lead you to the best spots, where sparkling algae accumulates. For a full hour, you will be enchanted by how every stroke of your paddle leaves behind a swirl of light, and fish light up their path like shooting stars in the water. The more YOU splash the water the more bioluminescent light you will experience. You are in command, the algae will NOT glow on its own, you have to ACTIVATE it with YOUR hands or the paddle.
Come a bit early to enjoy the beautiful sunset over the bay and a nice cup of Costa Rican coffee, juice, and some snacks. You'll get a briefing, a suitable life jacket, before we go to the launch area for the kayaks. It will be like going on a cozy family tour, as the maximum group size is 10 people. We'll stop along the way, and explain more about the magical glowing water and marine life in the bay. When we return to the beach, fresh water and towels will be available, as well as bathroom facilities, if needed
Other things to note
The tour is fine for beginner-level kayakers.
Weight limit 250 pounds / 115 kilograms.
Please do not consume alcohol before the kayak trip.

We are a team as hosts, sharing the different tasks to give you a good experience. This season Luis and Jose, who are costarican, will be guiding most of the tours. I'm a marine biologist (Thomas), and Vigdis and I discovered that we had permanent bioluminescence here about 10 years ago. All exited we explored the area, and found it great for doing the tours. The four of us have more than 14 years experience with guiding, and we all have good knowledge of bioluminescence. We enjoy taking people out on the water and showing you the magic of the bioluminescence in our bay—we enjoy it just as much every time.

Πού θα είστε

We'll be in the bioluminescent bay of Costa Rica. It's one of very few places in the world with permanent bioluminescence. Bioluminescence is found in many parts of the world, however, in most locations, it is either seasonal or requires perfect conditions in order to occur. Contrastingly, the Paquera Bay is home to bioluminescence year round.

Amazing experience! Beautiful stars and a true experience kayaking at night and learning about bioluminescence. We considered a boat tour, but it is much better and meant to be seen by kayak! A peaceful and magical experience!

I’ve seen bioluminescence before but this experience was really magical and the option to experience it with friends and loved ones with a knowledgeable and patient guide was really wonderful!

This was a wonderful experience. There is something magical about seeing the bioluminescence up close from a kayak, and the experience of kayaking at night in such a beautiful and peaceful place was very special. Our guide Luis was fantastic. His enthusiasm for nature and the biology of the area were contagious, and his warmth and friendly nature were a joy to be around. I can still hear his voice calling out, "Guys, guys! Paddle over here! Look at this! Woow!" Great fun, great memories!

This was an incredible experience! We had never seen anything like this, and Louis was so insightful and enthusiastic! Vigdis and Thomas has an amazing place to rest, meet new friends, and get ready for the water! Pura Vida!!

L'expérience est très belle, mais une virée en kayak un petit peu plus longue ou un peu plus lointaine aurait été sympa.
