It is uncommon to find a glowing body of water during their travels. On the island of Jamaica, there is such a body of water called, the Luminous Lagoon. Tours of this bay is a great little excursion that should be considered while visiting Jamaica. Due to the fact that the tour is done at nights, it is hardly in the way of any other choice of activity and so can be done and get you back to your resort in time for dinner. Best Jamaica, the most guest centered Tour Company on the island offers Luminous Lagoon Tours from Montego Bay at great rates.
Luminous Lagoon, located in the historic Town of Falmouth, is a natural wonder and is close to where the Martha Brae Rivers empties into the Caribbean Sea. The explanation for this awesome sight to behold is that it is home to millions of dinoflagellates (algae). The body of water lights up whenever it is disturbed even by its natural inhabitants, fishes. At night, the lagoon sparkles and glows when disturbed, as these microscopic organisms produce an uncanny glow, reflecting the outlines of fish and other objects in the water. It is said that there are only four places in the world where this occur and the location is Falmouth is the most luminous.
All tours the Luminous Lagoon offered by Best Jamaica are totally private; this means that you will be the only one in the vehicle with us. However, the tour on the lagoon is a boat ride and that aspect is a shared ride and not on a private boat. We normally get going around 5:45 PM depending on where in Montego Bay you are located.
