We were made aware of this hidden gem just a few days before we travelled and we were very pleased to have heard. Nestled in a bay just outside Falmouth is this rare phenomenon - Silt and marine life debris that have been laid down at the the meeting point of an fresh water river and the sea when disturbed...

This was an ok excursion but not worth the price. No safety equipment, bring water shoes as the water is shallow and mucky. They want you to buy the photos they take of you, $16 US + admission of $25US.

Considering you are not supposed to touch the bottom unless you are a strong swimmer you should bring a flotation device. No lifejackets were offered. A water noodle or a blow up ring would have made it much easier. Once the muck was stirred up the glow lost its intensity. Although Captain Dave said there were no accidents on his... More

Went with my family because we thought it would have been a nice relaxing experience. First we were rushed to pay the very overpriced fee to get on the boat and drink our complimentary drink that was horrible. We then got out in the water and the water was not glistening even though we were told that it was before... More

This was amazing. My husband and I totally enjoyed the tour onto the lagoon which left from glistening waters. So magical!

Visited Glistening Waters last week with my family. The restaurant was nothing special, so don't bother eating there. The waiter was nice, but super slow. Food was very slow to arrive. They skipped some of us on the drink order & didn't notice. There were only a couple other people dining, so no reason for such poor service. Took forever... More

The night I went to the Glistening Waters it was raining so the water didn't light up as bright as I had hoped. The water is only about four feet deep and has lots of very cold spots. Worth going but not when it's raining.

Went for lunch last week on our cruise stop, they took forever to bring the credit card and Bill back to the table. Took so long I got up to go find them and see what was taking so long, saw all the staff huddled with the card in the corner of the restaurant but just thought maybe they were... More
