I was a bit apprehensive about going in the water when it was pitch black but thought what the heck. Warm water and very shallow. Glad I did go in. The rum punch they give you before hand was a treat as well. Worth a visit.

It was okay the water was warm and it was fun but way overrated. I preferred Dunns waterfalls and the botanical gardens and you HAVE to eat Jamaican patties!

My husband and I didn't want to commit to, too much while on our honeymoon. We tried to find attractions that we really wanted to do and that were affordable. We went to SumFest (awesome, but I'll review that later) and we booked a 'Sunset Cruise with Cocktails to the Luminous Lagoon' through the aquatics center at the Royalton White... More

I was very excited to be able to experience the magical wonders of the Bio luminous Bay. Not only was this educational it was absolutely magical. The mystery of the glistening waters was amazing. I went with a friend who lives in Jamaica and he had never been there before. He was amazed that this body of water truly what... More

What an amazing place! This is one of 4 spots in the whole world where luminous waters exist (the other 3 are in Tanzania, Bahamas and Puerto Rico). The tours start at 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30 and take about an hour. The fee is $25 per adult and $12 for kids. You take a boat to the middle of this... More

I saw a good number of reviews for Glistening Waters before I booked the excursion at my hotel. In theory it's great but my experience was marred by the group that was on our boat. When you get there you get a free cup of Rum Punch (Very strong may I add, so I wasn't complaining) and depending on how... More

An awesome trip. Always wanted to do this and this time we got the opportunity to do so although we had to drive for an hour from Ocho Rios. The tour was great and our group made it so. Our tour guide was very nice and I am so sorry I cannot remember his name but he was an elderly... More

We got a "deal" for $280 for 4 people. It was a 1.5 hr drive each way and the drive was not smooth! Plenty of hairy moments! You arrive by sunset to the lagoon, hang out a bit until it gets dark. Then they take you out on these boats in parties of 20 or so. The water did glow... More
