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 on A Glass-Bottom boat, 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.

Note to non swimmers: You must get into the water to experience the glow, as it only occurs when the plankton react to your movements. The water is completely safe and usually very warm. Life jackets, safety rope and life preserve ring are provided so you can enjoy it worry-free.

 

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.
