Once you arrive by van, hop aboard a boat and head out into the waters where the plankton transforms into vibrant bioluminescent lights.There, you’ll be able to swim (a life jacket is provided) in the illuminated waters and enjoy the night sky.

Great tour! Such an awesome experience
, Jul 2022
Fantastic tour with a great tour guide and awesome views for the boat ride! There was lightning and thunder on one side of the sky and then beautiful views of the stars on the other side, which created such a magical experience. The bioluminescent plankton was super awesome. For us, they weren't as intense as usual apparently (not quite the blue that can occur), but it was still really cool to see the shimmering/glittering light that occurred when moving your hand through the water. Highly recommend! Such a unique experience! :D

We could hardly see any planktons. We had to go in a tent to see them and swam for about 5 minutes. Not worth it
