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!
Nothing short of perfect! Kristie was so helpful in booking our boat ride. Cass and Alex were so much fun we didn't want the day to end! Thank you for a truly memorable day!
Crystal Charters provided my family with a beautiful and memorable experience. The staff was beyond knowledgeable and went out of their way to make our children’s time on the boat magical. They... even worked with our son to reel in a fish. We were not only shown amazing sights, but Vernon and Serena knew everything there was to know about the sea life and the best spots for viewing them. We would highly recommend Crystal Charters.read more
We had an amazing day with Crystal Charters. Captain Benji and Cass were fabulous! We went to a reef to snorkel, starfish point and to Sting Ray city. They were so educational and hands on with... us during this excursion. I cannot recommend this charter enough. We will be using them again in our next adventure in Grand Cayman when that happens. Thanks for a great day on the boat!read more
We had an AMAZING trip with Crystal Charters!!!! The two captains we had, Matthew and Hunter, were very professional and patient with our group. They made sure that we were able to do all of the... things we wanted to and were very helpful with the stingrays and snorkeling. The booking process was very smooth as well. We were on the WorldCat boat and it was gorgeous - incredibly clean and comfortable. We had six in our group but could easily have had a few more and still been comfortable. I would highly recommend Crystal Charters!!! You will not regret it, our entire group said it was the best six hours we spent on the island!read more
What an amazing day! We decided to book a 4 hour charter while on the Disney Wonder to avoid the typical excursion crowds and couldn't have been happier! Alex and Kass were exceptional guides and... made the most of every minute we were there. The time we spent with the stingrays was awesome. Most of the tour boats had 50-100 passengers, all waiting to see the rays with their guides while Alex and Kass just kept finding more stingrays to bring over to the four of us. Then, while snorkeling, there was only one other small boat nearby. Kass went the extra mile entertaining our youngest daughter on the back of the boat by feeding the fish and finding conchs once she tired of snorkeling. I would recommend Crystal Charters to anyone going to Grand Cayman and we'll be using them again in the future!read more
Captain Benjie and crew, Shirley and Alex, were knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make sure our trip was everything we could have hoped for. The boat was comfortable, the snorkeling was... beautiful and the visit to stingray city was superb. Definitely do the bioluminescent bay experience too...amazing! We had such a good time with them, we chartered the next day to try some fishing. While we didn’t catch any record-breakers, the day on the water with their hospitality and knowledge was everything we could gave asked for! Many thanks for the great experiences and we hope to see you again!read more
