What You Can Expect

Luminous Lagoon Night Cruise in Jamaica

Luminous Lagoon Night Cruise in Jamaica

Meet your guide during pickup at your hotel in Negril, Ocho Rios or Negril. Depart on your evening ride to the Luminous Lagoon, which will take between 1 and 2.5 hours, depending on your departure point. 

Part of Martha Brae River in the parish of Trelawny, the Jamaica's Luminous Lagoon is home to millions of microscopic bioluminescent organisms and is one of the country's natural wonders.

When you arrive at the lagoon, transfer to a small boat and head out into the lagoon under the light of the moon. Aboard the boat, enjoy a complimentary rum punch and listen to your expert guide tell you about what makes the lagoon's tiny inhabitants glow. 

If you like, dive into the water, only 5 feet (1.5 meters) deep and only one of a few bioluminescent lagoons in the world. As you move, watch the tiny harmless creatures light up blue-green around your body. When your luminous adventure is over, enjoy transportation back to your hotel.

This tour was absolutely amazing! It was on my wife's bucket list and honestly I wasn't all that excited about it. I saw photos of bioluminescence but thought they were photo shopped to look brighter. We were some of the first people in the water and it is crazy! The light is very bright and depending on where you swim it can get brighter. As you take your arm and hand out of the water the organisms are still on you and sparkle like blue diamonds all over. It was really a rare and unique experience! Definitely a must if you visit because Jamaica is one of the few places in the world you can experience this.

This is one cool excursion. Just imagine swimming around in the dark and being surrounded by glowing water. This is one 'WOW' excursion. The limbo guy aka the fire eater was the topping on the cake.

Really cool experience!! It was just a short trip to the lagoon and it is amazing how much it lights up. Well worth the trip and our guides were great. Also enjoyed a limbo and fire show after so that was an added bonus. We will do again next time we are in Jamaica.

This trip was just awesome, and one of those moments which made us to feel bad that we didn't know swimming. Very nice place.

The guide 007 and rest were just awesome. They really have an art of explaining things in a funny way. I love those guys.

Also, we witnessed a fire man who gave his performance before the boat was departed, he is just awesome as hell. That guys has so much of a talent. Thank you so much Viator and their partners. Yo Mon- No Problem!

Picked up on time from hotel in Montego Bay and then about a 40 minute drive to the lagoon. Toilets/changing/drinks etc all available there. Tour guide was very good - knowledgeable and fun. Spent about 20 minutes on/in the water and it was a great experience. The kids who were on the tour really enjoyed it. Some people took empty drinks bottles and filled them up/were told by the tour guide that the luminous water lasts for about 5 days in a bottle. We were there under a full moon and the blue water lit up fine. However, we were told 'the darker the night the better'. Really glad to have done it.
