Glow Worm Sunset Cruise from Providenciales

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Set out for the Caicos Banks, guided by an expert local captain and crew, while enjoying the evening sunlight or relaxing under the shaded canopy.

    This one-of-a-kind experience leaves the marina approximately 30 minutes before one of Providenciales' famous island sunsets. Glowworms, or odontosylls enopla, perform a spectacular marine mating ritual every month under the light of the full moon. Float gently on the shallow water surrounded by several secluded cays, peering through the glass-bottom boat to see the female glow worms release their eggs, which give off pinpricks of neon green light. The males dart among the eggs to fertilize them, also glowing with the same pale bioluminescence. Enjoy complimentary wine, beer, rum punch, non-alcoholic beverages and light snacks as you watch nature in action for approximately 15–20 minutes. After the action subsides, you'll be returned to your hotel, having just experienced one of nature's natural phenomena.

    Please note: The lunar cycle and other natural forces control the timing of the glow worm's mating ritual. Female glow worms generally release their eggs 2–3 days after the full moon, and the spawning process takes place on 2–3 evenings in row after that.

    My husband and I really enjoyed this relaxing cruise during the sunset. The glow worms were actually much more impressive than I had first imagined! The drinks were good, the appetizers also good, but the views were spectacular. Just remember your bug spray!!!
