This is a unique way to experience the bioluminescence in an especially constructed electric boat designed in every way to observe the bioluminescence at its best.
This custom electric stealth boat is like no other. Although many may think that the design is for physical appeal, every aspect of their boat, Moonless Moments, has a purpose. Darkness is enhanced by the high walls built on this custom boat creates a perfect pocket of darkness to view the stars above and the bioluminescence below. Once the captain finds a sheltered spot, the deck opens-up! Floor hatches are removed to display a unique way to interact with the bioluminescence.
Due to the boat being low to the water, guests sit on the deck and dangle their hands and feet through and into the glowing world below. No need to swim, see it for yourself from the comfort of ‘Moonless Moments’, Cayman’s only electric bio boat.
Now families of all ages and abilities can come and enjoy an enchanting experience of Cayman’s living lights. These Bioluminescent Tours are one of those “must do” activities that really ought to be on everyone’s vacation wish list.
It's only a seven-minute relaxing ride to the bay and once anchored, the floor hatches are removed to reveal a unique way to interact with the bioluminescence. There are paddleboards on-board if guests dare to challenge themselves to a paddle in the dark. This is a great opportunity for families of all ages to accommodate all levels of adventure!
What is Bioluminescence?
On land, fireflies are a good example of what it’s like. Bioluminescence is defined as “Life Emitting Light.” It is a common occurrence in the sea. However, to find an area with high concentrations of it on a regular basis is rare and something not to be missed.Tiny microorganisms called ‘Pyrodinium Bahamanse’ are responsible for this captivating display. When at rest, they appear to sparkle, but when disturbed they release more light to be seen. Come experience it for yourself.
A laser point show of the night sky is given when conditions allow. In the winter months Orion’s Belt, Taurus and Polaris are a common sighting. In the early summer the Southern Cross comes out for a special treat. The Big Dipper, Little Dipper, Scorpio and The Milky Way can be seen throughout the summer months.
Cayman Kayaks offers a shuttle from wherever you are staying to Rum Point and back at an additional cost. Rates are cheaper than taxis and you will be driven by a member of Cayman Kayaks’ staff. You could also rent a car to explore the East End and North Side before the tour.
