Wonderful evening. Alex was a fun, welcoming, and extremely knowledgeable guide. The drive to the beach was great, his description and demonstration of many constellations was superb, and the beautiful bioluminescent plankton topped it all off. Thank you!

Our guide Alex is very knowledgeable and it was an amazing experience! The tour is in the night time and not at 10 as it says here though, but because of the moon that’s the best time. would highly recommend

Alex was a fantastic guide and made the entire experience special. Everything was fun and went smoothly from dropping off our gear ahead of time to dropping us back off at our Airbnb after the event. My husband and I loved this tour and couldn't recommend it more!

All equipment dropped off early! Picked up for our excursion on time! Night was perfect, nature was on our side! Saw the most stars I have seen in my life and the plankton was magical like sparkles in the water. Alex was an entertaining and helpful guide with humour and personality. Alex has been doing this tour for years and will ensure your experience is top notch! Vamanos!!!

We found out that Holbox has a bioluminescent body of water the morning we were heading there and booked this excursion. The entire experience was magical, from the wetsuits, to the tour guide’s explanations and pointing out constellations, to splashing and swimming with the bioluminescence. We highly recommend. Worth keeping the kids awake for.
