We booked a last minute trip to Grand Cayman and were unaware that there was a bioluminescent bay there--but once were knew, we had to go check it out, and BOY were we glad we did. We even had second thoughts about driving (you do need a car--or a taxi) all the way out to Rum Point in the dark, and then to get into our bathing suits and get into dark ocean water in kayaks! But I can honestly say, it was not scary at all, it was a nice easy kayak following Tom around Rum Point and into the bay, where he leads you into the shadows to see the magic begin--your paddle or your hand or your trailing foot touches the water and you see a sparkly bloom of light and color, faintly blue and green. When we got to a shallow area we could see fish darting around like shooting stars under the surface and little branches lit up like christmas trees when they touched the water! So beautiful!
Tom was an extremely knowledgeable guide and caught us up as a group at times to explain the science behind it and the importance of safeguarding this precious spot, only one of about a dozen in the world. It was an incredible experience--thank you Tom for fitting us in last minute.
The moon was rising when we got to the bay, and instead of detracting from the show, I think it was a spectacularly romantic scene...so glad we did it!
