There are no “trips” to see bioluminescence. It is a natural phenomenon and there is no way to predict when or where the conditions will be right.

The subject of bioluminescence and where/how to see it comes up quite often on the forum. As Lyn says it's a completely natural phenomenon and depends on a number of conditions to "bloom". It's impossible to say or know know if, when, where it might be seen, and I hope that no tour guide would tell you they could to take you to see it; if anyone claims to be able to do so you should keep your $$$ firmly in your pocket and run away quickly! You certainly can't plan or base a trip on seeing this phenomenon, so choose an island that works for your other needs and wishes. Chances are that you won't see bioluminescence, but you just never know.

Here's a link to the previous discussions on this subject.
