Q: When is the best time to visit the bioluminescent bay?
A: The best time to visit is when there is no moon present. There are no tours the night before, the night of, or the night after the full moon so please use the lunar calendar to make sure you come at the best time.
Q: How do i read this calendar?
A: Months on the top from January -December left to right and the days in each month under the letter from 1-31 top to bottom.
Q: Where in Puerto Rico are you?
A: We are on a separate island named Vieques. To get here you have to take the ferry or take a plane. You have to stay overnight so please be prepared for that. You can check if Joe and Maria have space at The Vieques Tropical Guesthouse.
Q: Are there sharks in the water?
A: Sharks can only live in water. Therefore, yes, wherever there are sharks they're in the water.
Q: Are there sharks in THESE waters?
A: Due to the shallow warm waters and the protection the mangroves provide, Mosquito Bay "the biobay" provides natural sanctuary for many different animal species, sharks being among them. Sharks lay their eggs in the bay then leave. So the sharks you would most likely encounter here are tiny babies. There's no need to be alarmed because these aren't feeding grounds, this is a nursery. Besides, 12 ft kayaks are NEVER on the menu.
Q: Is it called Mosquito Bay because there are so many mosquitoes?
A: No. The story behind the name is one you'll have to hear from your guide.
Q: Are there mosquitoes in Mosquito Bay?
A: There are mosquitoes anywhere you go on the island after dark so be prepared. However, while we're on the water, the distance from shore and slightly stronger winds keep them at bay. That being said, you do want to wear mosquito repellent. Please make sure to use the DEET FREE kind. DEET is highly detrimental to the micro- organisms in the bay which make the water glow.
Q: Can we go swimming in the biobay?
A: Absolutely not.
Q: What if we pay extra?
A: Still no. There's a $10,000 fine for anyone who is caught swimming in the biobay. Besides, a large part of why our biobay is the brightest on the planet is because of the strict conservation efforts in place to protect it. We like being the best and we'll do everything in our power to stay at the top. That includes keeping people from swimming in the bay.
Q: What if we really want to swim in glowing water?
A: If you're truly interested in swimming in glowing water, send me a message and I'll take you to a place that you can swim In bioluminescence. The intensity is nowhere near the same as in the biobay but the water does glow and you can legally swim in it.
