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.

You’re reading these reviews thinking “could this be that good?” YES. We drove all the way from quepos on our short trip to see this and it was beyond worth it

Expérience magique! Lieu féerique, guide hyper compétent et chaleureux. Nous avons passé 1 mois au Costa Rica et la famille a élu à l'unanimité cette activité comme étant la meilleure de notre voyage! Bravo pour ce site merveilleux et les hôtes respectueux de l'environnement. Triple wow!

Fun activity solo, couple, or for the whole family. I felt safe, comfortable, and really enjoyed the experience! Its like glow stick juice in water. Our host was very friendly and served refreshments. Our actual tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the topic. I would book again.

Magical experience and it made me feel like a kid again playing in the water to see it glow over and over again!

This experience was so magical from just the kayaking at night to the stars i the sky and then the greatest part of all is playing in the water and watching it light up this experience awakens the inner child and it’s absolutely breathtaking, couldn’t capture the moment on camera but it will forever live in my memories

Easy to reach from Puntarenas and without a car, the hosts supported me before I booked with any questions and then even called 4 different taxi drivers to ensure I wouldn't miss the last ferry of the night. The guides are knowledgable on the algae and the bay is beautiful at night
