LUMINOUS LAGOON: After lunch, the bus will make its way back to Falmouth in the late afternoon for the second activity of the day, the incredible Luminous Lagoon. The Luminous Lagoon is a very rare gem, so rare that this natural glistening water is only found in only four countries in the world – Indonesia, Bahamas, Puerto Rico and Jamaica. The Luminous Lagoon holds the record of been the brightest of the four. In 1964, John Hopkins visited Jamaica and did some studies in the lagoon which he discovered that the water contains phosphorus, small microorganisms that get their energy from the sunlight and then when the water is disturbed, by something like a paddle or a hand, they illuminate. The Martha Brae River also flows into the lagoon which assist in maintaining the perfect water temperature and other conditions. As soon as it gets dark your boat’s captain will be ready to take you out in a glass-bottom boat to see this natural wonder. Make sure to take you swimsuits because there is a brief stop for you to take a swim. After your magnificent evening at the Luminous Lagoon, your bus will transport you back to your hotel.
