A popular spot for snorkelers is Bioluminescence bay, we leave from Cayman Islands Yacht Club just before sunset and the tour is about 3 hours. The first stop is Starfish Point to see the setting sun and awakening stars. Next stop is the famous Bio Bay, where we spend most of our time. Our informative guides will tell you all about this amazing sight. We can have a last stop at the Kaibo Beach for dinner before heading back in to the marina.
Our boat – “Good Times” will take you through the Bioluminescent Bay at a slow pace and once inside the Bay, guests will get an overview of what the Bioluminescence is all about and then get up close and personal with this magical experience.
We suggest swimsuit, t-shirt, or a long sleeve for the ride. A towel and spare dry clothes are recommended for a comfortable drive back at the end of the tour.
Bioluminescence is defined as “Life Emitting Light.” Bioluminescence is a common occurrence, however, finding an area with high concentrations on a regular basis is something not to be missed. On land we see bioluminescence is fireflies, glowworms and occasionally glowing fungi. However, in the ocean bioluminescence is much more common but extremely rare to be seen in high concentrations. Tiny microorganisms called ‘Pyrodinium Bahamanse’ are responsible for the captivating display. When at rest, they appear to sparkle, but when disturbed they release more light to be seen. Come and find out why these unique bays exist.
