Guides (Reid, Katy and Cuba) are very friendly and informative. Got picked up at the time proposed, didn’t have to wait. Reid gave a fun ride to the tour, Katy gave a very nice tour of the bio bay. Learnt a lot of information about the bio bay tour. Cuba spoke about the stars and constellations which was very interesting. And the bay was gorgeous, it was glowing so well. Its a mesmerizing experience. I would definitely recommend this.
Our transport Reed was very professional and welcoming. Kayak guide, Katie, was as knowledgeable as we hoped with emphasis on biology of bay, stargazing, info on recovery post-hurricane, etc. The bio bay experience with calm winds, starry sky, and guides who value and protect the bay's diversity and health, added up to a transcendent evening.
Very professional, organized. Provided very thorough information prior to trip. On day of pick-up, very flexible and we were able to change pink up location. Driver was super friendly. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. The bay is truly magical.
JJ was awesome at giving us information about the island and the bay. Very entertaining!
Loved the small group setting. Being out in the bay in the dark could get overwhelming and they kept us together!! Much appreciated. Right from pick up to drop off they made our experience memorable. From friendly and knowledgeable to fun!! Thanks guys for the best excursion on our trip!
It was the perfect night, the glow was amazing. Very informative your guides, we learned a lot.
The amazing qualities of the bio-Bay were met by a very professional and knowledgeable staff. Shout out to Captain Katie, whose knowledge of the science behind the magnificent luminescent creatures and other species in the area (shark, rays and tarpon) as well as flora (mango swamps), was tremendous. This is a “never-forget-it” experience, and Blackbeard was flawless.
Everything was awesome !! The staff JJ pick us up at the Blok , our guides were Cuba and Angie , we had a great time, everything was spectacular , the mosquito biobay was out of this world !!! Amazing !!! , thank you guys !!!
Well organized. Very prompt. Knowledgeable guide. Reliable equipment.
Well looked after, all as expected, very memorable experience.
My wife and i had a great time. Lane (the tour guide) was excellent in all aspects. Thanks Black beard!
Last nights lightning show in the distance and the glow of Bio Bay...how to I top something as magical as that? Perfect situation with a small group during "slow" time for the island, even saw a great herd of wild horses on way back to drop off point. Extremely educational about the ecosystem and the history of the island. Amazing!

Simply breathtaking. And a no hassle experience!!!
They mixed up the date we had registered for our tour. Luckily, it got straightened out because we would have been on a plane headed home on the date we received on the confirmation. The tour of the BioBay was very good, a delight to be out paddling under the stars! Tour guide was knowledgeable and accommodating.
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.
