The Brightest Bioluminescent Bay in the World. A natural wonder that must be experienced to be believed.

Water stars. Glittering, gleaming life illuminating the bay like a mirror of the cosmos.  The Bioluminescent Bay of Vieques, Puerto Rico is as mysterious as a clear night sky.
Don’t let the common name, Mosquito Bay, prevent you from experience this wonder of nature. You can rent a kayak, glide across the water as day turns to night and surround yourself with the quiet glow of nature’s phosphorescent organisms living in the water.   Nighttime tours can be scheduled for a spellbinding evening.  Keep in mind that like much of Nature, this biological system is fragile, so no swimming or physical interaction with the luminescent organisms is allowed. This world class natural wonder is too magical to miss.

Although this bay was spooky, unfamiliar, and exotic to the first European explorers, the intensity of glowing light is helped by the rocks early settlers threw into the water in their attempt to understand this wonder of Nature, giving the native organisms more places on which to grow and thrive.  This only enhanced the allure of the Bay over the centuries, making Mosquito Bay the most brilliant of the bioluminescent bays in the world.
