Glistening Waters

Excursion Jamaica, Jamaica

Experience the beauty of nature Glistening Waters

As the only natural nighttime attraction in Jamaica, Glistening Waters' Luminous Lagoon is one of the most incredible spots in the world. This lagoon, surrounded by mangroves, is home to microscopic organisms that emit a bio-luminescent light when agitated. The water glows a beautiful blue and becomes illuminated when these organisms are disturbed. As the fish in the lagoon swim and dart around, you can see their outlines as streaks of light, shooting around in the darkness of night. When it rains, the lagoon ‘lights up’ with the drops of water dancing on the surface. Truly an amazing experience! Plan ahead and bring a towel and swimsuit so you can take a swim during the night-time tour on the Luminous Lagoon to illuminate yourself and the waters around you. This phenomenon is said to only occur in only three places in the world.
