Moon Schedule

Las Croabas Lagoon in Fajardo has 500,000 to 700,000 of bioluminescent dinoflagellates ( a plankton) per gallon, Mosquito Biobay in Vieques has even more, so when you wave your hand through the water you trigger so many of them that your hand lights up with a thousand tiny stars. There are many companies that offer kayak trips into the bioluminescent lagoon from the small fishing village of Las Croabas. It may be worth the trip to Vieques Island for the intensity of the bioluminescense!. but you should not leave out the incredible beaches of Vieques on the Wildlife Reserves.

The microscopic plankton in the Bioluminescent Bays of Fajardo and Vieques light up when they are touched! Imagine a lagoon full of liquid starshine! Pure magic, the experience is actually indescribable.
