To be honest, there aren't really words to adequately describe it. It is something you have to experience to believe and to understand. Beautiful. Cool. Fascinating. Amazing. Such a neat experience. We could have stayed for hours just watching and swimming there. If we are ever fortunate enough to be able to return to Jamaica, we would definitely go again.... More

This was a great experience!!! When the guy tells you to not put your feet down in the water...LISTEN. It is 2-3 ft of mud laying on the bottom. Other than me touching the bottom, it was a great time by everyone. The more you move the more the organisms light up. When we returned back to Negril and into... More

To put it simply, you jump in and the water flash glowing green fire at your every movement! For the science nerd in me, it was one of the best excursions I've ever done!

There are only 4 in the world and Jamaica is one. This place should be reigning in the tourism bucks, but sadly many people overlook it. After visiting, I figured out why. There's no way to capture the beauty you will see in photos. No photos to share means you can tell people how great it is, but you can't... More

I really did not believe my eyes when I went there. I thought that maybe it is not that nice as in pictures in internet. But it was, it was great. And go to the water, then you really can see what happens when you swim there! Bring some mosquite repellent if you have to wait for a while at... More

Ok, where can ou go and jump into the water and light up! Only 4 places world wide, and this is one of them. Splash light up and watch the glow roll off your arms. Funky enough to be cool.

The boat took 10 minutes to get us out to the spot. We were allowed to go in the water for 10 minutes or less and were told the tour was over. The glowing water was neat but this 20 minute tour was not worth $49 per person.

Super neat. Its an experience thing, go out, watch the waves light up as the boat travels through, hop in the murky waters and watch all the little planktons glisten on every inch of your body. Weather permitting, so go only after a sunny day!

Went on a whim with my husband and it was amazing. Very well run, high quality operation. I just wish we would've had more time to swim in the bay. But overall, I'd do it again.
