Full description
Board a boat for a ride on the bioluminescent lagoon to see the illumination of the water that occurs as the boat disturbs the microscopic organisms inhabiting the lagoon. On this boat ride after the sun goes down your boat captain and guide will tell you the story of the lagoon and why it glows.

As your boat approaches the center of the lagoon, your captain will tell you about the folklore around swimming in the lagoon. Then you’ll have a chance to slip into the lagoon, which is less than 5 feet deep. As you swim, the water around you will begin to glow. Watch as your hands begin to sparkle as if covered in glitter.

After exploring this Jamaican natural wonder, you'll be transferred back to your hotel.
