Description

This lagoon, surrounded by mangroves, is home to microscopic organisms that emit a phosphorescent light when the water is agitated. Plan your trip for dusk and then take a boat ride on the lagoon. As the water is disturbed, you will see eerie lights illuminating the waters below. Those who wish to swim in the Luminous Waters are welcome.

After pickup from your hotel, head to the Luminous Lagoon, located in the parish of Trelawny and part of the Martha Brae River. Walk to the the launching point, board a small boat and head out onto the lagoon.

During the cruise you will learn about why the lagoon glows as you cruise to the center of the lagoon, which is less than 5 feet (1.5 meters) deep. As the water gets disturbed, see an brilliant blue light illuminating from below.
If you're feeling adventurous, take a swim in the glowing water, one of only a few like it in the world! The lagoon’s eerie-looking water is actually completely harmless.

The tour will end with a cruise back to the port and a drive back to your Montego Bay hotel.
