Ocho Rios to Luminous Lagoon Tour
The Luminous Lagoon Tour takes visitors to see one of Jamaica’s most unique natural attractions. The tour begins with a pick-up from our friendly, professional driver where an air-conditioned bus will take you to the Luminous lagoon. While on the way, the driver will entertain and educate you about various aspects of Jamaican life and culture. You’ll be in awe as the journey takes you along Jamaica’s beautiful North Coast.
The Luminous lagoon, located along the marshlands of Trelawny, is one of the world’s rare gems, so rare is it that it can only be found in 4 countries in the world – Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Indonesia and Jamaica.
However, it is said that the Luminous lagoon in Jamaica is the largest and most brilliant of four in the world. Scientists have done several studies on the properties of the water and found that it contains millions of tiny microorganisms, called dinoflagellates, which that get their energy from the sunlight and whenever they are disturbed, they illuminate under low-light conditions. This is possible because the Martha Brae River feeds into the ocean and the organisms thrive in the layers where salt and fresh water combine and glow the brightest in shallow, warm water.
At the Luminous lagoon, you’ll be taken out on a glass bottom boat to experience this awesome natural wonder. Make sure to bring your swimwear as there will be a brief stop where you’ll be able to take a swim.
This is undoubtedly the high point of the tour as your body will be surrounded by a luminous green glow – the more you splash, the more you glow! This tour is perfect for both couples and the entire family as you’ll not only be able to experience a one-of-a-kind attraction, but you’ll learn about Jamaica as well.
