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.

This is a unique experience! Blue glowing water when you swim in it. Really incredible. Huge lagoon is brackish water, but clean. Bottom is silt/mud which is a little unnerving. Boat captains were very good.

Real disappointment- I understand that there are only 4 in the world but simply not worth the 2 hours of travel for a 45 month tour! Save your money.

Good people, good laughs, good entertainment

Our trip to the Luminous Lagoon was way better than expected. Pick up was convenient and right outside of our hotel. The shuttle arrived a bit later than we expected, but the ride was enjoyable as the drivers gave a lot of insight about the...More
