Swimming in the luminous water was incredible. The water lights as you move it. Our boat driver was outstanding. We had so much fun!

Don't listen to any of the party pooper reviews out there! This excursion is amazing and truly spectacular!! Use the life-vest if you don't want to touch the bottom, I did and never felt it once! My only recommendation to the management is to have the "fire show" area larger/safer. We sat next to the water on a ledge during... More

Luminous Lagoon was awesome. What a cool experience, especially since there are only 4 in the world. Any movement, the water would light up. Watching the fish swim under the water and light up was spectacular. It was fun getting to swim in the water and lighting up. The water would get super cold and then warm which was interesting....

This was something different! To see the water light up and you can see the fish illuminate and the people in it was awesome! The bottom I was told felt really squishy and weird! I did not wanna get in it! It was a great experience. One of the guys that took the pictures had a very bad attitude! I... More

I had no idea what to expect with this excursion but it did not disappoint. Now I was a bit skeptical with being on the waters at night but taking a dip in the middle of the ocean with these illuminating organisms....so worth it!

We took the boat ride which was pretty much at sunset. The water glows when it moves. We were allowed to jump in and swim in the dark. It was a good experience, something I had never done or seen before. The water didn't glow as much as I had expected or seen in pictures but I heard that the... More

Tour was ok, pretty quick and a lot of mosquitos! Still pretty neat to see the water glow in the dark. Would recommend checking the tide tables and going only at high tide as the muddy bottom gets stirred and makes it tough to see the glow of the water. Also, not recommended if you are frightened of swimming in... More

This was such an amazing experience. Seeing the water glow as we swam was really cool not to mention that everyone who worked there was extremely nice and helpful. My boyfriend and I went late at night on the last tour and since we took a route taxi there we were kinda worried if we were able to get one... More

I am not one who prefers to swim in ocean waters or bays at night. However, the excursion offered through Dressel Divers out of Rose Hall to Luminous Lagoon was magical. The boat takes you on a sunset cruise to the lagoon offering rum cocktails and beer on the journey. Once at the Lagoon you slip into the roughly 3-4... More

It was a pretty good excursion, you do the tour in the evening, so not much else to do in evening so it is something to do. Our boat broke down well we were on the water, but our captain fixed it but took about 20 mins. We went swimming and did see the glowing water worked better if you... More
