Starting daily at sunset, our famous Luminous Lagoon you will see things that will make you appreciate the beauty Mother Nature. As the boat start its engine the organisms begin to glow, you will see an eerie light show illuminating from the back of the boat and all around from the wake. This lagoon, surrounded by mangroves, is home to microscopic organisms that emit a bio-luminescent light when agitated. The water glows a beautiful blue and becomes illuminated when these organisms are disturbed. As the fish in the lagoon swim and dart around, you can see their outlines as streaks of light, shooting around in the darkness of night. When it rains, the lagoon ‘lights up’ with the drops of water dancing on the surface. Truly an amazing experience! Plan ahead and bring a towel and swimsuit so you can take a swim during the night-time tour on the Luminous Lagoon to illuminate yourself and the waters around you. This tour of the Luminous Lagoon takes approximately 35-40 minutes.
