Full Moon Kayak Eco Adventure Tour in Puerto Rico

Full Moon Kayak Eco Adventure Tour in Puerto Rico

This is the perfect nature adventure under a full moon!

If your stay in Puerto Rico happens to fall during the full moon stage, you don't have to miss out on an evening Kayaking tour. This tour replaces the Bio-Bay Kayak Adventure during the full moon cycle as the reflection of the moonlight on the surface of the lagoon makes it difficult to see the Bio-luminescent Organisms.

But, that same moonlight exposes mangrove forests, eight ecosystems, bird life, the second oldest lighthouse in Puerto Rico, iguanas and much more of nature's secrets that are normally overlooked on the darker nights.

Please Note: This tour requires a minimum of 6 persons to operate; you may be required to wait for confirmation until the minimum number of participants has been met. This tour departs from Laguna Grande, which is an approximately 2-hour drive from San Juan.

    Tour Itinerary

    You will be outfitted with all the needed gear which includes: double kayaks, backrest, paddles with leashes, PFD's (Lifejackets) and two to three Guide Kayaks with all needed safety equipment, lights and refreshments. Your guiedes then make sure you have the necessary Botanical insect repellant as well as a brief course in kayak 101 safety training which covers all aspects of the tour and operation of your kayak.

    You then head across a small fisherman's cove to the entrance of Las Cabezas de San Juan Reserve. Here, the tour group enters a mystical channel that leads to a peaceful place where the mangroves create natural tunnels and the sights and sounds of nature surround them. Along this 30-minute paddle, your lead Guide will be stopping to give commentary on the following points of interest:

    • Mangrove forest and the different species
    • Bird life that inhabits the area
    • Aquatic marine life that use the lagoon as an estuary
    • Information on reptiles such as Tree Iguanas
    • Rainforest and its role for the lagoon
    • Lighthouse History

    At this point you will enter the lagoon called Laguna Grande (large lagoon). Here, the paddle is along the edge of the mangrove forest as you watch and listen for movement in the mangrove trees. Look for the beautiful Great White egret, brown pelican, 35 species of warblers, great blue heron & yellow crowned night heron - all the while hoping to catch a glimpse of a shooting star.

    This leads to a break point were beautiful views of the Rainforest and the lighthouse of Fajardo accompany interpretation of the natural area along with good conversations. At this point, you will be about one hour into the tour and, under a blanket of stars, it's time to start the return to the departure site, which will take about 30 minutes. Snacks and refreshments are provided at the end of the tour.
