Our most popular tour on is the Adventure Tour. Travelers get to experience a whimsical hiking adventure to Black Sand Beach, snorkeling with sea turtles, dinner by the beach while watching the sunset and finally, once it is dark, going into the world’s brightest bioluminescent bay, Puerto Mosquito (Mosquito Bay). Get to walk through one of the top remote streams on Vieques island which leads to Playa Negra (Black Sand Beach) where the sand is, well, black. Many times, while walking through the stream to the beach, we are able to share the path with friendly horses walking the opposite direction as we are. These horses are accustomed to being close to tourists year round. Many of them love fruits as treats in order to be petted. “Are the horses on the island wild?” - Is a recurring question from our visitors. The truth is they are not entirely wild. These noble beings all have owners  who let them roam free. By doing so, it gives our visitors perfect scenes for picture taking and also takes them back in the era when cars were not invented. Finalizing this trail is the charming Black Sand Beach where the sand is not only beautiful and black, but it is also magnetic. When visitors look around, they are able to admire the dramatic cliffs that make the beach an enchanting cove. After this beautiful and adventurous hike, we then drive to a different beach, called Rompe Olas. This place is a wave breaker. It is usually very calm! However, when it is windy, only one side is rough since the ‘rompe olas’ (wave breaker) stops the wind and the currents from disturbing the opposite side where it remains calm as a result of  the wave breaker. This beach is excellent for visitors to cool off after the alluring hike to Playa Negra. In the water, there are colorful corals, different types of schools of fish and finally, but not least, the tour guides lead visitors to where different types of sea turtles are spotted. Like the horses on the hiking trail, these sea turtles are accustomed to tourists year round. If swimmers remain calm when they get close to the sea turtles, the turtles will not chase away, but remain and continue doing what they were doing before tourists spotted them. The sea turtles are usually eating from the corals that grow on the pillons of the pier. The three types of sea turtles recognized at Rompe Olas are the Green Sea Turtles, Hawksbill Sea Turtles and the Loggerhead.

    Moving on, while watching the sunset, participants have dinner. Dinner is provided by Salty Spirit and the participants get to choose anything from the menu of puertorican flavorful food from a local restaurant. Finally, once it is dark and the participants have a rest, the tour guide will lead them to Puerto Mosquito (Mosquito Bay), the world's brightest bioluminescent bay, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. The micro-organisms responsible for the luminescence in the water is a type of dinoflagellate. In order to notice their true form, they would have to be viewed under a microscope, which they measure 1/500th of an inch. At night, however, they emit a blue/green light. In the case of these organisms, the light they emit is a combination of a protein called luciferin with an enzyme called luciferase. These micro-organisms are found in every ocean and they are able to only glow at night time with every touch we make on the water, when the fish swim by, and the incredible trail of light the kayaks leave behind them as they go forward. Even though these organisms are in every ocean, the highest concentration is found in this bay. There are different factors responsible for this beauty, one of those is the inlet of the bio bay that leads to the open ocean. Puerto Mosquito is also surrounded by Red Mangrove Trees, which is another main component of the habitat. It is extremely amazing to learn the symbiotic relationship of nature on this tour as we are kayaking away during night time. Most nights, when we look up, all we notice is a clear sky full of stars, we then take a look down at the water and it is something very similar from the sky above us!  Once kayaking through glowing waters, as you stroke the paddle in the water and the fish darting and moving like shooting stars in the water, we are also able to relax with the sound of the waves crashing outside of the inlet of the bay while being on a complete calm body of water, and the sound of the birds that live in the Red Mangroves. It is a magical adventure on which we get extremely proud and excited to share with our visitors.
