Why Kayaking the Espiritu Santo River is a Favorite Activity at Bahia Beach

From a challenging round of golf to a refreshing dip in the ocean, the Bahia Beach resort has an abundance of amazing activities for our guests to enjoy. While we recommend taking some time to savor each one, if your time is limited, kayaking the Espiritu Santo River is an experience not to be missed. Here’s why:

Its Beauty is Inspiring

Bahia Beach is proud to offer two exclusive kayaking tours along one of the most captivating rivers in the world—the Red Mangrove kayak tour and the Evening Paddle Boarding/Kayaking tour. By kayaking the Espiritu Santo River via one of these excursions, you will be able to fully take in the splendor that surrounds you. From the historic red mangroves along the banks of the river to the incredible wildlife that call the river home, there will be no shortage of natural beauty surrounding you as you are kayaking the Espiritu Santo River.

Its Serenity is Relaxing

When you are kayaking the Espiritu Santo River, you will feel at complete peace as you travel from the El Yunque National Rainforest to the Atlantic Ocean. Whether you are participating in one of our renowned tours or you are exploring the river on your own, you will undoubtedly feel at ease as you gently float atop the crystal clear waters beneath you.

Its Scenery is One-of-a-Kind

In addition to the magnificent experience of kayaking the Espiritu Santo River—which offers an astounding backdrop that you can’t find anywhere else—Bahia Beach is also within close proximity to one of the most mind-blowing kayaking experiences in the world, the Bioluminescent Mosquito Bay. This seemingly simple bay on the south shore of Vieques transforms into a glow-in-the-dark masterpiece once the sun goes down. The waters in the bay contain millions of half-plant, half-animal organisms called dinoflagellates that just happen to turn bright neon blue when they get agitated. As you are kayaking, your movements will upset the creatures, causing the entire bay to be filled with a sight that looks like it came straight from your imagination.

It Helps a Good Cause

When you are kayaking the Espiritu Santo River with one of our tours, you are not only partaking in an extraordinary activity, but you are also contributing to the Soul of Bahia Foundation. The proceeds of the kayak tours at Bahia Beach will help this nonprofit in their mission to educate the people of Puerto Rico about conservation while also working to maintain the awe-inspiring beauty of the island.

Kayaking the Espiritu Santo River at Bahia Beach is easily one of the most unforgettable activities at our resort. To ensure you don’t miss out, contact your concierge today to get your kayak tour scheduled.
