Full description
Following pick-up at your hotel in Montego Bay, make your way to Falmouth for the start of a truly amazing adventure.

Experience the legendary Luminous Lagoon, and appreciate the magic and beauty of Mother Nature's creation at a unique light show. Stretching along the marshlands of Trelawny, from the small community of Rock to the town of Falmouth, the Luminous Lagoon is a must-see for every visitor to Jamaica.

Enjoy a delicious meal and cocktail at the restaurant (own expense) before the natural phenomenon begins. Then take a boat tour out onto the lagoon and marvel as the water is disturbed and organisms begin to glow. See an eerie light show illuminating from the back of the boat and all around from the wake. Witness a miracle of nature for approximately 35-40 minutes.

Surrounded by mangroves, the lagoon is home to microscopic organisms that emit a phosphorescent 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, you can see their outlines as streaks of light shooting around in the darkness. When it rains, the lagoon lights up with the drops of water dancing on the surface for a truly amazing sight!
