The natural phenomenon. Being home to millions of dinoflagellates, marine plankton, the lagoon glistens in the night when disturbed. Those microscopic organisms produce an eerie glow, reflecting the outlines of any object like swimmer of fish in the water. All lagoon has shallow, warm water in the layers where salt and fresh water combine and glow the brightest. The Luminous... More

This was a magical experience. It was dark and mysterious. I came unprepared to swim but I was not missing out so went in with my clothes. The water was glittering and glowing in the dark. Unforgettable and magical. A must see and do!!!!!

We visited Falmouth to see the glistening waters. The boat trip out to see the waters was an excellent experience with good explanation. If we had known we would have put on our swimming costumes to join the swimmers. Also if we had known there was a restaurant there we would not have booked dinner at our hotel.

I highly recommend this tour. It was so neat to swim in the luminous water and accessible for all ages. I would recommend that you bring a change of clothes for after the boat ride.

I am pleased to know this rare attraction is in my home land. This should be seen by all, however to me this feels like once you have done it once you will be satisfied and need not go again. It was very informative and educational. It's a sight to be bold and I was in awww.. Pictures or videos... More

Captain David was totally in control in a firm and friendly way. The water was so shallow we could have walked out but it was fun non-the-less. Captain was really interesting explaining the phenomenon and taking water and pouring on the floor of the boat and on a cloth to show how it glistens. He made many jokes along he... More

We went on this tour by boat while the sun was setting. As soon as it got dark, the bay's water had glowing water while the boat moved. We were able to get out and swim in the water. It was an incredible experience. The water was warm and the ground felt like marshmallows, although it was mud. It was... More

Due to another tour running longer than expected, we were late getting to our tour of the lagoon. Luckily, the captain of the boat agreed to pick us up at a dock along the way. The boat ride was like a party with music, dancing, and drinks. Swimming in the lagoon was a life experience for sure. It was beautiful.... More

Interesting to see water glow. Not a fancy tour but still interesting. We came right home and googled this phenomenon. I would recommend for all. Don't worry about getting lost in the water at night...you glow!
