It was quite a hike from our Montego Bay hotel, but totally worth it!
Amazingggg!!!!! WOW, this is really a hidden gem experience that is not to be missed in Jamaica. It being my tenth time actually to Jamaica, I am so glad I found this on Viator. From the prompt and friendly driver who had to come out all the way to Negril to trek us about 2 hours to the site, to the crew on the lagoon boat, the friendly restaurant, the fire/limbo show at the restaurant that they do after the cruise, the included rum punch all was amazing! Of course, it is way too hard to get photos and you're just in awe swimming around! but i'm telling you that this glows like a blacklight in the ocean when you swim and move it looked like the boat had a light on the back, but its really the motor churning up the glowing plankton! The coolest experience ever, and a super rare find in the world! Also, thank you to our driver who asked us if we wanted to stop to eat as we had missed our hotel dinner time due to being a ways from the tour. We went to an amazing smoked pork local place that really had some great local food! So thank you so much for adding that to our experience of Jamaica and knowing that we would definitely be hungry on a tour/drive that was from 5pm-10pm. Thanks for having this tour from Negril also, I know it is far out, but having the ability to go was great!
My camera and cell phone cannot record the beauty of the Luminous Lagoon. It's amazing. The service staff were nice and the pre-tour performance was exciting. The pickup from hotel was on time.
This tour was fantastic! There is a show that was incredible. The tour guide was funny and knowledgeable and the water was amazing. Our driver (Syd) was awesome! He gave us a bunch of information on the drive there and back about the island, it and #39;s history and culture.
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!
We had a blast with Sydney! He gave us a lot of history about Jamaica, which is exactly what we wanted. The lagoon was cool. We want to see Sydney next time we go to Jamaica! He is an amazing an employee, definitely a keeper!!!

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.
