The Luminous Lagoon is said to be the largest and most brilliant of four luminous lagoons in the world that continually attract people from all over the globe. Located in the parish of Trelawny where the Martha Brae River meets the Caribbean Sea the phosphorescent water consists of millions of tiny harmless microorganisms called Dinoflagellates. These organisms live in the layers where salt and fresh water combine and glow the brightest in shallow, warm water. The center of the lagoon itself is less than 5 feet (1.5 meters) deep. The Dinoflagellates give off flashes of light caused by the movement of a boat, touching the water with your fingertips or taking a swim. The color produced is an iridescent blue-green glow, reflecting the outlines of fish and other objects in the water. Take a boat ride with us and enjoy the glow!
