This group is awesome. It was a big group going out but you had enough guides to make it easy to follow along the dark waters. Very cool to see the bioluminescent plankton. Like sparkles of light in the water, very cool. Seriously, very nice staff and helpful and was a great experience.

This was a great trip! The tour guides were great and really allowed us to experience all of the blue lagoon. I enjoyed the 3:30pm (6pm tour) trip because we got to watch the sunset, see the mangroves in the light, and also experience the bioluminescent plankton.

The guides were very nice and informative. Even though it had rained heavily recently and the glow was more dilute than usual it was still very magical.

It has been wonderful, all the super friendly guys, I would return without thinking about it !!

So much fun. The tour guides were awesome and very knowledgeable.
