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!
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
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
