This is an incredible sight to see. It is one of the most memorable things we did on our Jamaican holiday and I would highly recommend it. The boat ride out was nothing special, but once you are there and in the water and it is glowing this beautiful turquoise color, it is astonishing. My husband did not want to... More

This tour was nice! This natural phenomenon only happens in 3 places around the world. Jamaica is one of them, and its #1 at that. It was a short fun tour, and we were able to get out the boat and swim if we wanted to (just be aware that you might have a jelly fish encounter). Our tour guide... More

1 star. The location is lovely, Chapman Dan is awesome and that's where the good ends! We planned a wedding from the US and trusted the Manager to provide stellar service, to the contrary what we received was the opposite. Can you imagine the stress to plan a wedding a country away? Unanswered questions and telephone calls became the norm.... More

We went on this excursion through Iberostar Suites (diving club). The boat ride out was very, very wild. The waves were hitting the boat and knocking us around. If it wasn't for the Rum and the Red Stripe Beer that they offered we might have been a little more freaked out. Also they are not as quite concerned about safety,no... More

My boyfriend and I visited while on our week long vacation in Montego Bay. It was about 75 minutes from our resort. This excursion is extremely reasonably priced at $30 pp (plus transportation) and offered a very unique experience. When you arrive, usually just after sunset, you can grab a drink from the bar and sit and talk with both... More

A large group of us spanning the ages of 2 to 65 came to Glistening Waters to experience the phosphorus in the water. It was fun as we boarded a boat and set off across the water at high speed, in total here were two boatloads of people combined in the tour. After a while we came back towards the... More

I don't know how this isn't the highlight of more people's trip. The water is incredible - our taxi driver took us to a local tour, rather than the big group tours advertised on the website. We waited with a drink in a great bar by the water before being driver out to the lagoon for a swim. The tour... More

We had a true once in a lifetime experience. We were lucky enough to visit and see the lagoon in the rain. Its an experience that truly cannot be explained or captured in any other way aside from personally being there. Unfortunately the bottom fell out of the sky when we reached the center of the lagoon & we experienced... More

My husband planned this trip from Negril as a surprise. I had never heard about Glistening Waters and now you should go and see it! I actually swam in the water at night! The water glowed as I moved and Capt. Jerry explained the fresh water and sea water meet at this point. There are millions of micro-organisms that defend... More

We had a blast at the glistening waters lagoon. We went there just before the sunset. They had several boats ready. As we were there in the low season, we could hop on to a boat right away. Weather was nice and visibility was good. It was amazing to see the unique phenomenon of the lagoon. After driving a mile... More
