We visited and paid $25 per person (even kids) to get into this place. Water not luminous. Hardly saw any light. They advised that it's down to rain, heat etc so check before you go because $25 is a lot to pay to see nothing.

Excellent, we drove there around 8pm had our little Rum punch included while waiting around about 15 minutes no other people arrived so they took us out on the boat. Private 30 minute tour it was great, watching the fish dash thru the water and light it up. Splashing our hands in the lagoon and seeing the light. They had... More

The ride was over an hour long to get to this venue. I feel like I paid $50 to swim. You are taken a few miles out and told to jump in to pitch black water. There's one lifeguard that attempts to watch your parry from the boat. However, there were 26 of us out there so not sure how... More

So I read some fairly mixed reviews before going off for this tour, and there was a little gem of info that helped, but the rest of the negative stuff seemed really irrelevant to our experience. The gem of info: Wear water shoes! The bottom of the lagoon is covered in about 18 inches of CLEAN, ORGANIC silt that is... More

love the way the water glows. This is a must see and must swim area. I am very glad to have marked this off the bucket list. This is an evening activity.

We went out a couple of days ago and it was not worth it. The water did not glisten. We were packed into a small boat like sardines. People were coming back from the water full of mud. They should of advertised it as a midnight swim. I spoke to some of the locals that tell us it could have... More

There are only 3 places in the world that have this extraordinary place/experience -- Jamaica is one of them. The tour is about $40 per person and a bus will pick you up and return you when the ride is over. This tour is only held at sunset and the boat only holds about 25-30 people. The lake is very...

Absolute amazing natural wonder - must see and swim! We booked a tour with Michael from Faithful Waters. He was a great captain and we would book with him again.

This experience lands solidly in my Top 5 Coolest Things Ever list! My boyfriend and I did this on a trip to an all-inclusive resort in Jamaica and when we return with our kids we will be doing it again! It's one of only 4 places in the world that this occurs so we had to experience it. Its easiest... More
