Bioluminescent bay kayak tour

Like swimming in a starry sky

If you want to experience something really out of this world, you should definitely try the bioluminescent bay kayak tour conducted by the Bahia Rica Fishing & Kayak Lodge. 

Imagine kayaking at night in water that turns light blue at the touch of your hand. It’s like swimming in a starry sky, with fish moving around you, creating little comets of light, while your paddle creates galaxies in the water. It’s really a once-in-a-lifetime experience that no one should miss.” Writes Patrick Goodness, in an article in The Luxury Couple about his life and experiences in Costa Rica.

Patrick has lived in Costa Rica for 10 years, and in this article he shares with us some of his favorite places to visit, and activities to do. The bioluminescent kayak tour and Sport fishing with Bahia Rica is among those favorites. Read about how Bahia Rica is his ‘go-to’ team for fishing and snorkeling trips in the Gulf of Nicoya.

Stand Up Paddleboarding video

Rent a Stand Up Paddle Board here at Bahia Rica, and enjoy a beautiful day on the water!

We have very good SUP boards from Hobie, and the calm gulf water makes for a tranquil padle where you really can take in the views and spot wildlife along shore, or in the water. Standing up on the board gives you an excellent angle in order to see fish, rays and other marine life.

Hayley from Minnesota got inspired to write this nice article in “The Costa Rican News” after doing the night kayak tour with us here at Bahia Rica.

SUP rentals at Bahia Rica

Stand up paddle boards (SUP) offer a fun, relaxing way to play on the water. With a minimum of gear, you can paddle the smooth waters of the Nicoya Gulf.

Paddle boarding delivers a full-body workout and thus has become a popular cross-training activity. And since you stand at your full height, you can enjoy unique views of everything from sea creatures to what’s on the horizon.

Now you can rent SUP Boards here at Bahia Rica Fishing & Kayak Lodge, and go explore these waters.

SUPs have been spotted around the globe, anywhere where there is easy access to safe waters, as well as the surfing line ups of the world – and now also at Bahia Rica Fishing & Kayak Lodge. The rise in popularity of stand up paddle-boarding can also be attributed to how easy it is to learn. Within a very short time, you can become comfortable in the water and on your board.
You can take the SUP’s out for a fun day with your friends or even do your yoga exercises on the SUP. Come enjoy this awesome sport with us, rent a board and get out on the beautiful Gulf of Nicoya.

Birds Eye view

Bahia Rica Fishing and Kayak Lodge seen from a different angle.

You will always have activities to enjoy when you are staying at Bahia Rica: swimming, sea kayaking, fishing, bird watching, snorkeling or just go for a lovely walk.

But you can also  just  relax with the sea view and jungle sounds at the beach or in a hammock. Enjoy the pleasure of having your own exotic retreat in a small fishing village. There is an abundance of wild life here, the howler monkeys comes around almost daily and we often spot other animals such as armadillos, squirrels, coaties, iguanas and kinkajous. The diversity of birds and marine life is also rich, so make sure to have your camera ready.

Our beach is away from the road so it is very private. It is a typical “tidal beach” which means that it is nice and big when the tide is down, while the high tide comes all the way up to the palm trees. The water is always calm here as we are on the inside of the gulf.

Our kitchen with dining area is situated only 50 meters back from the beach, so from your breakfast table you can just stroll down to the water and start enjoying your day!
