Night Swimming in Bioluminescence

We depart from Pigeon Point at twilight, just as the sun begins its graceful descent for the evening. Venturing into Bio Bay by kayak and/or stand up paddle board, we traverse the lagoon in search of glowing plankton.

Every move you make will be expressed through light

Bioluminescence is a phenomenon caused by flourishing phytoplankton.

These microscopic organisms react when aggravated, in an otherworldly display of light emittance. This is truly something to witness and experience, and there can be many surprises along the way.

Jump in or casually walk into the warm, inviting water… it does not matter. While swimming, every move you make will be expressed through light. If you are lucky, be fascinated by a school of glowing fish or a stingray passing by as well.

This tour is dependent on many different factors, including the moon, and is only offered when all conditions are right for optimal viewing. A contact number will be required during your stay for quick and easy communication.

(This tour is also offered by boat, for those who prefer not to kayak or paddle board.)Β
