Start your tour with pickup at your hotel in Negril, Ocho Rios, or Montego Bay and an evening ride to Trelawny Parish on Jamaica’s north coast.

On arrival in Trelawny, take a boat ride on the Luminous Lagoon, a bioluminescent lagoon that’s home to millions of harmless microorganisms. One of just a handful of bioluminescent lagoons in the world, Jamaica’s Luminous Lagoon is said to be the largest and most brilliant.

Cruise to the center of the lagoon and sip on a rum punch, as your guide explains why these microorganisms, called dinoflagellates, thrive in the lagoon’s warm, shallow waters. See how they give off an eerie blue-green light when the water is disturbed and then jump into the lagoon and swim around in its iridescent glow.

After you experience all the magic of this natural wonder, hop back in the coach and end your tour with hotel drop-off.
