Take an excursion to one of Puerto Rico's Bioluminescent Bays
"Hidden along the Caribbean coast is one of the most spectacular Bioluminescent Bays in the world. The mysterious blue-green light is created by micro-organisms which thrive in an environment uniquely suited to their needs. A trip into the bay on a balmy night is a magical experience." —Captain Sharon Grasso
