Bio Bay Tours Grand Cayman
Glow in the dark at Bio Bay!
The Bio Bay is an absolute must-do for anyone visiting the Cayman Islands. This magical site is home to one of only a small number of locations in the world where you can experience this phenomenon. By stirring the water, it causes millions of tiny microorganisms called ‘Pyrodinium Bahamanse’ to light up, creating a mesmerizing display of nature.
You can enjoy this tour as a quick 2-hour trip or include it at the end of your day charter. We only offer private charters, so it will only be you and your family on board, allowing you more time in the water. After a day of fun activities, we can enjoy the sunset while having dinner at Kaibo beach bar.
Once the sun has set we will head off on our Bioluminescence adventure. We’ll find the best spot to anchor, our educated captains will teach you all about this fascinating display of nature’s most captivating wonders. Our captains are great at getting the kids excited about learning and love making this experience one of your most cherished in Cayman!
The only way worth experiencing Bioluminescence is by jumping in and seeing it up close. That’s one advantage of doing the Bio Bay by boat. We’ll provide you with all the snorkel gear you need and away you go! Just imagine thousands of little sparks flying off you as you swim around in the dark.
It really is a once in a lifetime experience, in which many of the visitors leaving the Grand Cayman say the bioluminescence is by far the best experience of their entire trip. It’s an adventure you and your family will never forget!
After splashing around in the Bio Bay, we will slow cruise back as you stargaze in to the night sky, which makes for a perfect ending to any trip!
From booking the boat charter to the end of the boating day, very professional crew. We had a great day with the crew, Hunter and Serena. They made us fell right at home and planned out our day of... adventures on the boat to perfection.Even though the day was a little windy, Hunter re-worked our boating events so that we could enjoy the day with limited wind issues.The best part of the day with swimming with the String rays, Hunter was very knowledgeable about the rays and helped us feel comfortable handling them.After 6 hours on the boat, we ended the day with a great meal, also a suggestion from Hunter.Will we being doing this again with Crystal Chapter, a definite Yes. Be sure to request Hunter and Serena, too.read more
This was my second experience and they have persistently amazed me. The first was with all adults but this was with my 8 month old son. As a family experience or adults only, the charter was... incredible. From their quick responses to my email questions about accommodations for my little one to the hand tailored experience we were all so impressed. Our latest crew (Alex and Serena) were professional, fun, and knowledgeable. We went to sting ray city, star fish point and had an amazing time snorkeling. We left with wonderful memories and professional photos to remember the experience. Will definitely be booking again. Hats off to this group!read more

5 STARS!Great time out on the water! We loved everything about the day! We saw so many neat things at the two snorkel spots, even stingrays and an eel! Lots of beautiful fish. We felt very safe... and it was so nice that we didn't have to bring our own life jackets, towels, water, or ice! Thanks for a great day!read more
This was a great day out on the water. The snorkeling spots were amazing. Stingray City was quite busy because of 4 cruise ships in town , but our guides still made it a very personal and fun... experience for us. The kids thought it was fun to kiss the stingrays for good luck. When our young kids didn't want to snorkel, they made sure the kids had fun on the boat feeding the fish and having a little dance party. All in all, the best day of our trip, so far!read more
We had a wonderful Bioluminescent Bay excursion with Crystal Charters!! Our tour guides, Alex and Ricky, were so friendly, knowledgeable and conversational. The tour started at sunset which was... beautiful but swimming in the bright blue water during the evening hours was a once in a lifetime experience. The brand new boat and fun music made the tour that much more memorable. I highly recommend this Charter! You will not be disappointed!read more
