We used Smiley Riley to take us here and as it was only a reasonably short journey from the hotel. It was great fun as you swim and the water around you begins to glow with a supernatural light. Difficult to pick up on camera so don't expect wonderful photo's but another Jamaica must see and one of only 4... More

This was one of the coolest things I've ever seen!! This is a MUST see while on vacation. The light in the water was unbelievable. I highly recommend this activity! And captain Jerry was fun!

As other reviewers have stated, the lagoon is a truly awesome sight & I highly recommend that you check it out. Our trip was a bit off because despite the captain repeatedly telling us not to use flash, one of the passengers kept right on filming with her camera's strobe light flashing not only on the luminous waters but in...

I did this with my 7 yrs old daughter and it was a very fun, unique experience albeit short and pricey (be prepared to fork out another $30 for pics). For a kid, it feels sort of magical and I would definitely recommend.

This was awesome! We picked a night the moon didn't appear until midnight so it was very dark. It glowed so bright! Seems like 15 minutes wasn't long enough for swimming but it was. Not sure if they gave us more time or not but a lot of people were in the boat when they told us time to go.... More

I have seen many attractions, but have never experienced anything like this anywhere! Imagine touching water in the evening and having it illuminate as bright as a glow stick. That's what it's like. Very safe, shallow water.. Only 3-4 feet deep. And not expensive. $25 for adults, kids 1/2 price. And it only takes an hour of your time in... More

We dropped a major clanger as we didn't realise that you really could go in and didn't take our swimwear so really didn't make the most of it, and it is fascinating! As you go into the water and agitate it , it becomes illuminous . It is fresh water and only four or five feet deep, so don't be... More

The glistening waters were good - best to put your gear on before you go and swim, mainly because then you'll only need to use the changing facilities once - they're cramped, dirty and smelled awful. This is not acceptable when they're charging good money. Overall it seems they're trying to cut costs to the bone. I guess people will... More

Went back for our third time in 20 years with teenage boys who loved it - you have to get in and swim to really appreciate how awesome this little trip is - photos taken are pricey at 30US dollars but we have never been able to get a photo or video to work properly so I think they were... More
