The employees were always very friendly and helpful. The information they gave was not only informative, but delivered in a very professional way. They truly seemed to care about making your stay as comfortable and enjoyable possible.
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.
It was beautiful! We loved it! Would definitely recommend friends!
The company's representative was very friendly and quite knowledgeable. He explained everything well. We had a great time swimming in the lagoon. We would highly recommend this tour.
This was a magical experience!!! You really have to experience it...its like the northern lights or a magnificent rainbow...its mother nature in her unique spectacular glory! Dont forget to bring your swimsuit and towel, you wont want to miss swimming!
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.
Amazing! We took our daughters ages 24, 21, and 18. They loved it. They said it was magical. My workaholic husband said it was worth the journey.
This was awesome! The guides know so much about the water and the area. Good luck catching anything on film without a top of the line camera, but they take some great pictures that you can buy!
Was a lot of fun but also a long ride from Ocho Rios - make sure to book during a new moon or when very little moon is showing.
This is short excursion, 30-45 min. Truly one of the coolest things I've experienced, I emphasize, get in the water if you try this, it's surreal. The water sparkles when disturbed and the " sparkles " cling to you for a moment. Highly recommend, must do!
Amazing! Once in a lifetime must! Beware, lagoon is shallow enough to stand in but bottom is made of silt and mud, feels slimy, but not a deal breaker. I recommend you doggy paddle combined with breast stroke. The pics with my disposable waterproof camera didn't work, so I'm glad I bought theirs!!!!
A must-see. There are only a handful of these sites on the planet (maybe 6). The one in Mexico just died, according to the news in late Nov. 2013 (probably from pollution from a nearby chemical plant).
Definitely a must do. Seeing the water sparkle and glow as you move through it fantastic. This was probably our favorite tour.
You might never get a chance like this one to swim in an illuminated lagoon! Your movement in the water makes it glow! Very cool!
We LOVED this! We went on a perfect night when there was only a little bit of glow from the moon. They took us out to the site, and then let us swim for about 45 minutes in these amazing waters. It was definitely a trip highlight!
My entire visit to Jamaica was amazing! Everything from the people, to the food, to the wonderful tours. The Luminous Lagoon is definitely worth going to! It was amazing seeing the water light up in a bright, neon blue. I would definitely recommend going to see this.
Luminous Lagoon was beautiful. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and accomodating. I went on a holiday Monday and the roads were a little dangerous. Several accidents due to drunk drivers.
Wow-if you're really into the wonders of nature, then you really need to take this tour. We swam in the lagoon, and it is a thrill to see the water light up all around you, and to glisten on your body even as you get out. We were told the affects are much more brilliant in the summer-Awesome!!
