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.

Great trip from Monetego Bay! Pick-up from the hotel was right on time with a friendly driver. Once there, we were given a small but tasty cup of rum punch. There is the option of changing facilities and restrooms there if needed. After a short boat ride, we were allowed to swim. Motion in the water makes this cool blue luminescence that was amazing to experience. Even fish swimming create the light with their motion. We did not have set limit on how long we had to swim, but there was a critical mass of people getting back in the boat after about 20 min so we got out as well. Overall, this tour was probably around a grand total of an hour. It was an amazing experience, but I would suggest doing this only from Montego Bay otherwise you'll spend much more time in the car than on the tour.
