What to Expect
Luminous Lagoon is another amazing feature that the Martha Brae River offers. The river is home to a rear phosphorescent microbe that lives in the shallow warm place where the fresh water from the river meets the salt water from the Caribbean Sea. Enjoy this evening tour of a boat ride on the river and see this wonder of nature as the water glows and lights up when it is disturbed by the boat and the constant movement of the water. Visitors who want to swim will get a chance to enhance this effect by swimming around in the shallow areas of the lagoon to see the water glow around them.

Luminous Lagoon has been named the best place on earth to view this rare occurrence, among only four locations that host this phenomenon. Located thirty minutes drive from Montego Bay, in Falmouth, Trelawney, home of the fastest man in the world Usain Bolt, this tour is a must to do on visitors list of tours.
