Experience one of the world’s natural phenomena on this night cruise of Jamaica’s Luminous Lagoon—a great choice for nature lovers and first-time visitors. Board a small boat for a moonlight cruise of the bioluminescent lagoon and learn about the millions of harmless microorganisms that cause its iridescent blue-green glow. The tour includes just enough time for a swim in the lagoon’s warm, shallow waters.
What to Expect
Start your tour with pickup at your hotel in Negril, Ocho Rios, or Montego Bay and an evening ride to Trelawny Parish on Jamaica’s north coast.

On arrival in Trelawny, take a boat ride on the Luminous Lagoon, a bioluminescent lagoon that’s home to millions of harmless microorganisms. One of just a handful of bioluminescent lagoons in the world, Jamaica’s Luminous Lagoon is said to be the largest and most brilliant.

Cruise to the center of the lagoon and sip on a rum punch, as your guide explains why these microorganisms, called dinoflagellates, thrive in the lagoon’s warm, shallow waters. See how they give off an eerie blue-green light when the water is disturbed and then jump into the lagoon and swim around in its iridescent glow.

After you experience all the magic of this natural wonder, hop back in the coach and end your tour with hotel drop-off.

Not what we expected

The lagoon was big and the staff were brilliant however it was a little bit of a let down . It was an enjoyable experience I'm glad I did it however for the money we payed I expected it to be a bit better .

Pretty unusual spot

We enjoyed everything from the fire-eater entertainment to the short cruise around the bay in the evening. The water's glowed when you churn them up and it was a sight unlike anything we've seen anywhere else. Bring your bathing suit and jump in.

We went tonight. It went well. I can suggest that you sit at the opposite side of the captain motor. I sat right next to the captain and it was a high traffic spot. I lost my shirt after swimming in the bay. It was...More
