If you have never had thousands of microbes glowing in the moonlight all around you as you swim then you have not really swam in the moonlight. This was amazing.

I can take this off of my bucket list! My husband and I enjoyed the bio luminescent waters from the boat. It was so fascinating! I have wanted to see the dazzling blue waters for years!

Interesting but I thought the cost was a little high for what you get. They crowd as many customers as they can into boat so be prepared to be uncomfortable. Short trip though so bearable. Watching the water”light” up was enjoyable.

We did not have any issues. I think as long as you are in an organised tour you will not have any problems.

Yes, you are charged for the pictures they take of you. But its worth it to purchase at least a couple as you can't use your flash on your camera while taking pictures yourself.

Yes, there were children on the boat when i went. They seemed to enjoy it, even the ones who were to shy to get into the water. There are life jackets for everyone. The water is only 4 - 5 feet deep.
