Vieques Puerto Rico: Lighten up in one of the world’s brightest bioluminescent bays
Photographer David Hillegas

Lighten up in one of the world’s brightest bioluminescent bays

Scoop the water into your hands as you kayak or swim—it’s like a thousand twinkling stars energizing your skin. Moving through microscopic organisms (called dinoflagellates) in this protected bay causes them no harm; it merely triggers a strong blue glow best seen on a moonless evening. Try the two-hour bio-bay night tour ($30) with Abe’s Snorkeling. Abe Snorkeling & Bio-Bay Tours; 787/741-2134 or abessnorkeling.com.
