This was such a neat and different experience. We were taken out on the boat at night and were given a ‘tour’ of the lights and cities round the lagoon. We were also given a history lesson on how the lagoon came to be the way it is and how the contrasting bodies of water affected the lagoon, its own... More

Extremely unique experience. When you jump into the water it lights up and the more you move the brighter it gets. Water is warm and not too deep. Life jackets provided

My fiancee and I had a great time swimming at the Luminous Lagoon and it was so cool to see the water light up as you swam around. Yes, you are picked up in a boat that could fit probably 15-20 people (but luckily, there were like 8 other people on our boat) and you are driven out like 10... More

Bring mosquito repellant because there are tons in this area. We got eaten alive while waiting for our boat to launch. It takes five minutes from the dock to get to the lagoon area. The illuminating area is nothing like the pictures. It's a dull light but after moving around in the water repeatedly the light fades as the dinoflagellates... More

We went as part of a tour from our hotel $49 was a bit steep for such a short trip but as it was something completely different we went fir it. The boat doesn't take you out too far and really without getting in the water it's a waste of time . We enjoyed splashing around as our arms legs... More

I found this tour only mildly interesting. I do not think that it was worth the time or money. The boats are small and crowded.

We visited and paid $25 per person (even kids) to get into this place. Water not luminous. Hardly saw any light. They advised that it's down to rain, heat etc so check before you go because $25 is a lot to pay to see nothing.

Excellent, we drove there around 8pm had our little Rum punch included while waiting around about 15 minutes no other people arrived so they took us out on the boat. Private 30 minute tour it was great, watching the fish dash thru the water and light it up. Splashing our hands in the lagoon and seeing the light. They had... More

The ride was over an hour long to get to this venue. I feel like I paid $50 to swim. You are taken a few miles out and told to jump in to pitch black water. There's one lifeguard that attempts to watch your parry from the boat. However, there were 26 of us out there so not sure how... More
