We took the Bio Bay evening tour to experience the bioluminescence that occurs here in 1 of only 12 Bays worldwide! They provide complimentary pick up in the Seven Mile Beach area and George Town. We boarded a large pontoon boat with and met our captain Danielle. She gave us a briefing of what we were going to see this evening, and then offered us complimentary island sangria. We took about a 15 boat ride to the North Sound of the island and entered "Bio Bay". She anchored the boat and then gave us a short biology lesson about what we were about to experience. We all put on masks and a snorkel and floated onto the warm evening water. What we experienced was breathtaking. The plankton in the water came alive in light whenever we moved our bodies. It looked like we were alive in light! Indeed we were all completely wrapped in the bright bioluminescence light of the bay. If you just lay there and float, you will see fish swimming by your mask that are lighted and even the trail of water behind their fins are lit as well. This trip was over the top amazing. Our captain Danielle was a library of information about what was happening and why. I spent some time quizzing her about what was going on, and she had almost every answer. I stumped her on one (how long was their lifecycle) and she came back to me 5 min later and said 5-7 days. Well....I almost got her. Anyway...this trip took us to a place that can only been seen a few other places in the world! Don't miss this fantastic evening trip to float and be seen alive with the bioluminescence wonder of this bay. You WILL NOT forget this one....I promise!!!!
