Good bay insights.
We went on a night with very little bioluminescence, and were impressed by how hard Angie and Lane worked to try to make it a good experience despite this. Kayaking at night under a beautiful array of stars is magical anyway, and I appreciate their integrity and devotion to both good ecological principles and customer satisfaction. We will definitely book again when we return!
We loved it! My husband, who is British, was absolutely astonished by the Bio Bay and was one of his favorite experiences in Puerto Rico!
The crew members knows all at perfection
Great staff! Ryan and Angie were fun, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and organized guides. Theresa was a courteous, safe driver. On time and friendly.
Was a beautiful evening on a kayak and extremely formative information about the wonders of the bay... The staff was amazing and helpful to those that have never been on a kayak. Don't forget to wear some bug spray!
We had a great night on Bio Bay. Chris and Angie were great guides, they know the bay intermitly and were able to answer all questions above and below the water. JJ was highly entertaining on the bus there and back! Bio Bay is an experience you cannot miss, it is one of those things you will probably never get to see again. Thanks guys for making it so special!
Guides were great and very knowledgeable. Well organized and planned.
Chris and Ryan were great guides! Very knowledgeable and fun. Also went above a beyond since my friend had nerve damage with her left arm, Chris attached a cord so we could ride essentially tandem with his kayak. Staff also quickly responded to my questions I emailed in before the trip.
Great guides! Very educational. Beautiful bay and amazing glowing water. We loved it!!
the instructor didn't really help in assuring we were completely safe.
My 14 year old daughter, her friend and I did the Bio Bay Tour. Black Beard was extremely efficient in getting us to/from the bay, handling the guests and getting us on and off the water. Our guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. The Bio Bay itself is amazing to experience!
Guides were informative and professional
Excellent tour! Would recommend to anyone. The experience was unique and both Ernesto and Jordi were excellent tour guides.
The Bio Bay was amazingly beautiful. The tour guides (Jodi and Ryan if I'm not mistaken) were super helpful and knowledgeable about the bay, the creatures and the stars. The tour was very well organized. I highly recommend doing the Bio Bay tour on Vieques with Black Beard!
Everything about the trip was wonderful. Our driver, JJ, was a highlight. The Bay was beautiful and Ernesto and Chris were very helpful and informative.
It was fun, it was hiccup-free. It is everything I asked for in a tour, delivered seamlessly. Thank you!
Really friendly and knowledgeable staff!
Knowledgeable and friendly guides. Proper equipment in good shape. Shuttle service on time. It felt a bit short.
Amazing experience !!
We thought it was great that they do small groups. Any more than 8-10 and you get lost in the shuffle and can't hear. We also loved the great information that was shared about the bio bay while all of our kayaks were tethered together and we were just relaxing. Our guides really knew the bay well. It was just a lovely experience from the driver, to the other members or our group to the guides. Loved it!
Chris and Ernesto did a great job, very professional and no confusion going in and out of the ramps like some other tours JJ did a good job transporting us to and from the Bio Bay from the W hotel
Black Beard Sports exceeded anything we can imagine. The Bio Bay tour was very magical and definitely worth seeing
Amazing experience. Very well organized and efficient tour operation. Hard to describe how awesome it was to go and see--- definitely a bucket list experience!
Guides were very attentive and shared a lot of information about the bay and sky. Our Kayaks were in excellent condition and were quite comfortable. The evening was beautiful, dark enough to enjoy the sights and the sky was full of stars. Our only concern related to the transportation to and from the by. The van driver was aggressive/rushed with his driving which made us all thankful when we arrived at each destination.
The people were very knowledgeable and informative about the things we cared about (i .e. good snorkeling spots). The gear we rented was good and they are very organized. I booked everything online months ahead of time and they pulled my info up in seconds. If/when we return to Vieques we will defenitely return to Blackbeard's shop.
Enjoyed the tour! We had a lovely evening with knowledgeable tour guides, Chris and Ernesto. Equipment was good! Everyone was helpful. Our driver, Randy, waited even though we were a few minutes late. Renee, Kansas City
Outstanding tour start to finIshmael. Friendly and helpful staff all along the way
Black Beard did a great job, they were on time for pick up, we had a great driver Nick. The tour guides Angie and Kelly were very knowledgeable about the Bio Bay. Over all a great experience.
