Delight in this amazing night tour to the enchanting Luminous Lagoon (Glistening Waters) in Falmouth.
Your tour guide will meet you in the lobby of your Montego Bay or Grand Palladium hotel in the late afternoon. From there you will be taken on a trip to the magnificent and very rare gem that is the Luminous Lagoon.
The Luminous Lagoon is a very rare, so rare that this natural glistening water is only found in only four countries in the world - Indonesia, Bahamas, Puerto Rico and Jamaica. The Luminous Lagoon holds the record of been the brightest of the four. In 1964, John Hopkins visited Jamaica and did some studies in the lagoon which he discovered that the water contains phosphorus, small microorganisms that get their energy from the sunlight and then when the water is disturbed, by something like a paddle or a hand, they illuminate. The Martha Brae River also flows into the lagoon which assist in maintaining the perfect water temperature and other conditions.
