This short boat trip into a warm sheltered bay close to Falmouth was worth the excursion. There are microorganisms in the water which glow when agitated by one's swimming motion. As you stroke through the water, the water around your hands glows. If you go when there isn't a lot of moonlight, it's especially easy to see the glow. While... More

We thought it would be a great idea to try the Glistening Waters Restaurant in Falmouth. The restaurant has an attractive location looking out onto the Glistening Waters lagoon, ample parking, but then we see why the place is like a ghost town with sky high prices for average food and wine. The one endearing feature was the overly attentive... More

The restaurant is beautiful. The tour boat ride was informative and really interesting. My regret was not having the courage to dress for a swim. Those who jumped in were having all the fun

Loved the experience and the crew made children feel very comfortable going in the water in the dark, and the rum onboard help warm you up, definitely worth a trip

We did this excursion and enjoyed it. It was a bit rushed and the water is dirty but we knew that from the other reviews. We stayed very close by so it was a short trip. Overall it was fun, wife passed on getting in the water, and more than that it's another item crossed of the list.

The only good thing about this place was the wait staff. Food is terrible as well as overpriced. We ate lunch ,dinner and breakfast. We ordered a wide variety of food. It is obscenely bad considering the prices.

Unique and educational. Jumping in and expierencing it for yourself is the best way to explain it. Visibility depends on the weather. The darker the better it is to see. A sunny day and rainy night makes for perfect viewing.
