Purely disappointing. Paid $84 for a small plastic cup of punch. Didn't see anything worth mentioning on the tour but I did feel sickened by the gas fumes from the boat. Jerry our guide was the one thing that made it tolerable.

...an incredible bucket list experience. We had a great time. The glow starts flaring in the wake of the boat and on the waves curving from the bow looking like neon. The you stop, jump in and you literally look like angels flying about in the water. Just surreal. Extraordinary. The best bit - your camera wont pick up anything... More

I'm torn between a 3.5 & 4 rating. The Good: - There are only 4 places on earth with these bioluminescent phytoplankton (bucket list item checked off). - The guide we had was pleasant and informative. - When you do see the glow, it's pretty surreal. - The limbo fire show is entertaining afterwards. The Not-So-Good: - Crowded! The boats,... More

The brochures make this place look so neat and inviting but we hardly saw any glow in the water and we wish we hadn't spent the $100USD to go. It really wasn't worth it.

The location itself is rustic. However it was not an expensive outing. We were lucky enough to ask to go on our own ( we offered a little extra $$ ) and it made it a great time. Our captain took us out and there was only one other boat out. It had been raining so maybe thats why there... More

This was a really cool experience. We were picked up at are resort in Lives at 5pm for the drive to Falmouth. Along the way we stopped so that our guide could pick some leaves from Allspice that we could crush and smell. Talk about fresh, couldn't get much fresher. We also drove by such sites as Rose Hall, and... More

Pick a dark night, bring your swimsuit and $25US for pictures , your camera wont pick up the light. It looks like none thing but once you are out there pay attention to the water. Get in the water, its a little cold but move around and watch it light up! Amazing!

I mean it was a very mild glow but stops as soon as you stop moving your hands. Its not worth the money.

This was one of the most amazing things I have ever experienced. The mud felt like pudding squishing through your feet and the glow was incredible. I would definitely recommend it. I have read a lot of reviews that it is dim but mine was pretty bright. The more you move the brighter it is. It was a little hectic... More

I was very excited about this tour as I have seen a documentary about this phenomenon on TV. When we arrived at the dock it was organized chaos. We were ushered onto a boat with about 40 people and started out into the lagoon with music blaring. There are about 5 or 6 boats taking people back and forth from... More
