Full description
After pickup from your accommodation, you’ll head straight to the Falmouth Lagoon to begin your bio-luminescent adventure. Greeted with a complimentary welcome rum punch, you’ll be briefed on safety information and the night’s activities. Enjoy a dinner of classic Jamaican fare at an esteemed local restaurant, with a choice of jerk chicken, fish, or a vegetarian option, served with Jamaican-style rice and peas and steamed vegetables.

As the sun sets, begin the boarding process to set off into the mangrove-surrounded lagoon. After a quick 8-minute boat ride, you’ll arrive in one of the 5 bio-luminescent lakes in the world. Populated by plankton that radiate a neon-blue light when agitated, the water will respond with an eerie glow to your every movement. Marvel at the phosphorescent spectacle as you glide through the warm waters during your 30-minute swim, the fish beneath you sparkling in the twinkling light.

With an on-board photographer to capture the otherworldly moments, you can pick up photographic souvenirs after your tour. As you disembark from your boat, enjoy a traditional fire dance and limbo show for a perfect ending to a magical night.
