It was an okay evening trip to see these beautiful waters turn colors because there are only 5-6 places in the world with the same colors.

Natural wonder only available in a few places in the world. If you get the opportunity to experience this natural phenomenon, please do. It is just an amazing experience. Photos are not possible without special settings so if you are interested in capturing the experience, plan to purchase usb stick available after your tour.

This is a short trip, but the bioluminescent phenomenon is very cool. We swam in the water and had a great time.

So worth every dollar and minute of the trip. I've been to the bioluminescent bay in Puerto Rico which was nice, but jamaica has the best one!! The water really sparkles and glistens in the distance, the jelly fish lighting up were beautiful. We almost couldn't swim because there were so many jelly fish but they took us somewhere there...

It was really cool to jump into the water at night and see it glow. It's hard to get any pictures since it's dark and you can barley see the water glowing in the pictures. Also there is small jelly fish in there, which I was not aware of until I felt very itchy. Once I got back on the... More

Went on an excursion through the hotel. They pick you up before dusk and you go out into the lagoon once it's dark. Whenever the water is disturbed the organisms glow blue - really cool! You don't have to swim if you don't want to, but it's pretty cool and they photograph you. We purchased the thumb drive with photos... More

Worth seeing. It was at night and we booked through the taxi driver to save money. With 13 people we paid 25 american each. Found out a group of 30 went and they paid 20 american each so you can get deals with more folks. 13 was packed. 30 would have been a nightmare.
