Luminous Lagoon Excursions & Tours
Come with us on excursion and tour for a swim at the luminous lagoon in Falmouth where the water lights up! The glistening waters of the world famous lagoon really shine during the Dressel Divers Luminous Lagoon excursions that also start with a great sunset.
The luminous lagoon is the habitat of extremely rare dinoflagellate phosphorescent microbes that only survives where the warm fresh waters of the Martha Brae River meet the salty sea water. The continued downstream current of the river activates the microbes to move and emit neon-green color light not unlike light sticks.
This phosphorescent effect is so pronounced that fish swimming about the lagoon seem moving stars. This unique natural phenomenon exists in only four places on earth. No visitor to this area should miss this opportunity to see the best dinoflagellate light show on the planet.
We cannot confirm it but suspect Bob Marley must have been here and thought “Stir It Up” and “don’t worry about a thing, every little (dinoflagellate) thing is gonna be alright”.
Frequency: Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
