Manolo and Bradley made the experience fun and personal! They took us out before the sun went down and let us watch the sun set, it was perfect!

Loved kayaking through the mangroves! There was a full moon so they had a tarp to spread over us to block out the light. Amazing to see the glowing plankton! Very friendly and knowledgeable guides.

It was a nice tour however some of the guides were a bit rude. Our driver was the best, he gave us ideas on where we should go during our visit to the island. Overall the Bio Bay itself was very serene and amazing but it was so dark out we had a difficult time seeing the mangrove trees in the canal.
