FIRST: Hands down recommend this over other Bioluminous Tours, and is pretty amazing! keep reading.....

The boat is not the most comfortable but the crew was giving us some history about the bay, the Island, the homes, etc on the way out to Starfish Point. I got out at Starfish Point and into the water and was stung by tons of jellyfish, it had also just downpoured the night before so the mosquitos were in full force. They had vinegar for the stings and were handing out tons of bug spray to everyone. We were at starfish point at another time of day and was fine.

To prevent anyone from getting stung by anything at the actual Bioluminous Bay, they had full suits for everyone including my 6 year old daughter's size... as well as socks, gloves, and full face snorkels for everyone. Had heard from other hotel guests that their experience on another tour was awful, got stung... another couple said their tour had the suits but hands and feet exposed. So this piece is KEY to my rating!!

Then.... my six year old got in with my husband and they loved seeing the water and making it light up. I stayed on the boat with my 4 year old who last minute didn't want to do.... . it is really dark. So I stayed on with her and another little boy... the captain got a huge bucket and pulled up fresh water every few minutes so they could play in the water on the boat, they had as much fun as a 4 year old could ask for! This exceeded my expectation. He was very patient getting the bucket up. Everyone else went in the water .. so 15 people and everyone had big smiles on their faces. Was agreed, amazing by all!!

The boat ride out is so amazing, you can almost see the roundness of the stars around the horizon the view is just THAT amazing, enjoyable and relaxing.

Only ice water is served, we brought alcohol as well as snacks for the kids. Even thought about calling a pizza to be delivered for ride out to the bay.

This trip was magical! Our family was only planning on seeing the phenomenon on the boat due to jellies in the water. However, to our surprise, the friendly and experienced staff provided full gear for all to jump into the waters and feel and witness the magic close up. It was a FABULOUS experience! Thank you to the wonderful staff.

The boat trip across to Starfish point was good. We stopped there until it got dark then went on to the Bilumious Bay. They had suits and full face snorkel masks for all. The sites were amazing. The owners Steve and Deb were very helpful and cautious. The pilot was very experienced. Wonderful trip.

This was a real neat experience. If you can not get in the water, I do not know if it would be worth it, but when in the water it is really awesome. They provide you with full face mask which allows you to get a wonderful view of the organisms as they light up. I think kids would particularly find this fascinating.

A must see when at Grand Cayman. Don't take a kayak, take this boat. We'll do it again.

Very informative and relaxing tour. You get to see the bioluminous bay and enjoy the scenic sunset and stars on the ride there and back. Highly recommended

Super well done. Deb was most personable and shared a lot of information about Cayman Islands and the bioluminescence dinoflagellates. Truly sparkling. Both guides were conscientious about the marine life and environment. Really appreciated that tour was super easy to start from the yatch club.

What a magical experience. This was amazing and is a definite must do on a trip to Grand Cayman. The way the water lights up when you swim around is amazing! The only thing this tour would benefit from is a hotel pick up option. However Stephen did take me back to my hotel which was great!

This was an awesome tour and I would recommend it to others. Steve and Nikki provided lots of information about the area, culture and the bioluminous creatures. He invited us and the others on the tour to leave a little earlier than scheduled to make a stop at Starfish point which we did. Swimming in the bioluminous waters was very cool and something we will always remember!
