The Luminous Lagoon stretches along the marshlands of Trelawny from the small community of Rock to the town of Falmouth. In the 18th century when sugar was king, Falmouth was one of Jamaica’s most pivotal ports. Located at the eminent point where the Martha Brae River meets the Caribbean Sea, the lagoon housed a wharf where large vessels from England unloaded goods onto smaller ships to be delivered inland up the river. Once inland, these boats would reload with sugar, rum, and other Jamaican exports and carry them back to the harbor. Years after the decline of the sugar trade, scientists discovered the lagoon’s geographical location was important for another reason. It was the single best place to observe and study microorganisms called dinoflagellates, which thrive in the layers where salt and freshwater combine and glow the brightest in shallow, warm water.
The Falmouth Mystic Luminous lagoon is the best place to see these microscopic organisms glow. The lagoon is home to millions of these organisms that thrive in these phosphorous water where the saltwater meets the freshwater (brackish water). While you swim the water light up with a mysterious neon glow around you: with every move you make you will be in AWE! You will even see fish swim around with a neon blue glow surrounding them. The water around the lagoon is surprisingly warm and not very deep, where we take you swimming the dept ranges from 5 to 6 feet deep. This exciting night active is the perfect way to end the day with our team of certified lifeguards, boat captains/tour guides, and photographer. They will help you create memories that will last a lifetime

A surreal and breathtaking experience! The warm waters glow with movement and are perfect for swimming. There are a few places in the world that have this type of algae but Jamaica’s is the largest and most beautiful in my opinion. This tour was very family-friendly but definitely gives a cool party vibe and the Fire Show was incredible.
