    There are three bioluminescent bays (bio-bays) in Puerto Rico. One in the SouthWest – "La Parguera", one on Vieques – "Mosquito Bay", and the one in Fajardo – "La Laguna Grande". Out of all three, Mosquito Bay is the brightest, and La Parguera is the least bright. The bays are protected by de gob. And you can kayak and swim in them when you go to the tours. The boat they use is a special one with no motor because the motors damage the organisms that make it glow.

    Mosquito Bay in Vieques, Puerto Rico, is generally considered to be the largest and brightest bioluminescent bay in the world. ¡Qué bonita! I'm definitely putting this on the bucket list that's already ten miles long...

    BIOLUMINESCENCE BAY (Isla Vaadhoo, Maldivas)~ The Sea Bioluminescence is the production and emission of light by a living organism, in this case by a micro organism called Noctiluca, that produce the beautiful blue glow. Fireflies, angler fish, and other creatures also produce the chemicals luciferin (a pigment) and luciferase (an enzyme) that reacts with oxygen to create the light. It happens mostly in Puerto Rico, but does appear in scattered other regions, as with this image, in Maldivas.

    Ahhh Nikki we know this place :) Bioluminescent Bay in Puerto Rico is the kind of phenomenon that could freak out any first-time visitor: When they swim in the bay, a trail of blue light follows swimmers wherever they go. It's not magic, but the abundance of single-cell organisms (as many as 720,000 per gallon of water) that give off this glowing color when they're agitated.
