By far, the best thing we did in Jamaica! Such a beautiful and rare natural occurrence - once in a lifetime experience for sure. Our JTL tour guides were phenomenal (Darlene & Chris) and kept us entertained.

We had heard from someone on our resort that this hour was a rip off so we were cautiously optimistic going in. But we were so impressed. The water really glowed! Very cool! And the limbo and firespitting guy at the end was simply awesome!

The sun was out all day so we thought the water would glow more at night. It is very shallow and are advised not to disturb the murky bottom.

Come here for a slower paced attraction. It is a nighttime event. The micro organisms collect energy from the sunlight during the day so they'll glow brighter on sunny days. You'll have to climb onto a small boat so I wouldn't say it was handicapped...More

We took this tour last year. It was very pretty the way the water glowed when the boat moved and when people were swimming.

Awesome experience... short evening tour...escape the heat of the day with a night tour.. get a little history lesson about the Lagoon and how these little creatures glow while you swim amongst them.

Just be aware that a glow only results if the waters are agitated (e.g. by swimming people). It is a nice short activity that isn't too strenuous. There is an excellent limbo dancer after the boat trip to watch.

We had rain the night we went which only made it more spectacular with each raindrop lighting up as it hit the water. Definitely a sight to not miss. Very affordable too.

I thought this was cool... some others did not. The water "glows" around anything that agitates it. Get in the water and play- a very personal experience. Our captain (Dave) was great! Warning: the "effect" is better following a sunny day with no recent rains-...More

I'm struggling with this review because we found the entire experience to be underwhelming. But seeing the glowing water itself was cool. A few tips: - If you're staying in Mobay, find your own way there. Our hotel was charging $60pp for transportation and the...More
