Words cannot describe how awesome Bioluminescent bay is, it really is absolutely magical. It is easy to see where stories of magic and sea spirits came from having visited. This was incredible

Do not miss swimming in bioluminescent bay! Awesome! Book at the yacht club near Rum Point. Well worth a lovely evening boat ride.

This was one of the coolest things we did. Best to see the bioluminescence when you are snorkeling in the water on a clear night. Truly a fun, unique experience. We went with George's watersports and they give you full suits, gloves, boots, snorkel equipment and a pool noodle.

Bioluminescence Glass bottom Kayak Tour with White Sand Tours There were two tour options: a boat (lazy way out) or the kayaks (“we didn’t book early enough” way out). We met at starfish point parking lot. Its right before sunset and you have stunning views of the east end of the island. There were lots of boats / yachts partying right off the shore as it is so shallow. Before we went on the kayaks we got a brief tutorial on the starfish and how the population has been wiped out because people lift them out of the water (they die!). It was cool to see that they could flip around if you turned them upside down. Not cool to learn they will cannibalize the little starfish and they will always crawl towards another starfish. So don’t put a baby starfish and big starfish close to each other! We had two people to a kayak and got colored glow sticks since it was dark when we started. It is a good 30 minute paddle against the current to the bay. Not overly difficult, but not a walk in the park either (overall: moderate intensity). The bay is located in a residential area, and we were able to get off at a sandy embankment where our guide gave us a quick astrology lesson (cool) and told us about the 2 different types of jellyfish (not cool) in the area. The bio luminescence was awesome to see and experience. it was nice to see the colorful lights around our paddles and seeing the flashing lights (like something out of star wars) thru the glass bottom kayaks was neat. The paddle back was a breeze. Overall it took 2 hours and I enjoyed learning about the starfish, kayaking and seeing the bio-luminescence. Something cool to do if you have the time. We got soaked so wear swimsuits and bring a set of clothes to change into (or towels!). Also do not recommend to bring valuables as you have nowhere to store them in the kayak and you can flip over.
