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, who is costarican, will be guiding most of the tours. I'm a marine biologist, 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 three of us have more than 10 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.

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.

Don't miss it if you're in the area. We felt like kids playing with glow sticks. The guide was super kind and caring ! Such a memorable experience

Very neat experience! I would not recommend for children or those who are nervous of trying kayaking for the first time as it is done completely in the dark.

this was a very fun excursion and the guide, Luis was so enthusiastic and friendly. the conditions were good, the group small (9 ppl 👍). however, I thought we would be guided by a marine biologist, the credentials that made me select this over another tour. also, I wish I've would have known that there is variation from what the pictures show (as that is nature), because it wasn't as vivid as i expected. the guides were very well informed and personable and we did get to see a lot of bioluminescent marine activity. I would recommend the tour, and its well priced. thank you!

Es war eine aussergewöhnliches und einmaliges Erlebnis! Ich würde die Tour jeder Zeit wieder machen. Das Aufleuchten des Wassers ist magisch, wie eine Galaxie im Wasser. Dieses Ereignis ist wunderschön, da man gleichzeitig auch den prachtvollen Sternenhimmel betrachten kann. Bahia Rica hat eine extrem coole zone mit Hängematten, Getränken und Snacks und ist deswegen auch vor und nach der Tour ein gemütlicher Ruheort.

The hosts are lovely and very responsive. The kayaks are great quality and easy to use. I recommend getting their earlier than you planned and going during the week when it may be a more manageable sized group.

This was a beautiful experience! The stars were like something out of a movie and the bioluminescent waters all lit up was like magic. The only thing that freaked me out a little bit was kayaking in total darkness. I wish I had a headlamp because getting separated from the group definitely gave me a little anxiety. Thankfully the instructor was very helpful and came to find us. Oh and if you’ve never kayaked before, be sure to pay close attention to the instructors directions so you don’t panic. I wish there was a way to get a picture of the event, but overall I had a good time!
