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.
