It's a TOURIST TRAP...from trying to sell you water shoes that you dont need through to a laborious boat trip where there wasn't any water luminosity to be seen. Boat staff were overhead saying just spin the boat round a bit and tell them some...More

Worth a visit if your in Falmouth. It’s very unique to see the lagoon glow but nothing like the photos so be prepared. Once in the bay the driver will break the water so you can see the flowing waters and then you can get...More

This trip was so disappointing when we went last week. We were herded onto a boat of about 40 people all crammed together. Never saw any blue in the water at all. I actually asked the guide what we were supposed to be seeing here....More

This is an excursion you can't miss! I will definitely return but make sure you prepare for the mosquitoes because they were fierce when the sun went down!

The luminous lagoon was an awesome experience! We got there late and they went ahead and took just the 2 of us! Creepy but the science is amazing!

Took a shuttle to the lagoon. Watched to dancers before the boat trip. Got on the boat and sailed out in the dark with no lights on. The captain spun the boat around to show us the glow we are going to be swimming in....More

Don't waste money and time. It only lights up every blue moon. It's not guaranteed to luminate and they tell you before you go. And they wont refund your money either. Go somewhere else and enjoy

Please be aware, If it rains the excursion shouldn’t have taken place. But they will still try to proceed with the booking. The glow was very faint. The cost of £65 dollars per person is one of the more expensive places to book through. Cheaper...More

I respectfully disagree. There are a limited number of places in the world in which to experience this natural phenomenon. Having done the excursion, you can most definitely see the bluish glow. Realize, weather... More

I don't know about the limbo party, we just did the Luminous Lagoon. That cost was $49 or$ 50. It was fabulous. We booked through JT tours at the resort when we arrived. We didn't book before we left the usa. You can book... More
