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.
The custom design of this electric boat creates a perfect pocket of darkness to view the night sky above and the glowing world below. The observation deck is low to the water, so your hands and feet are able to reach the surface to swirl around in the glowing water.
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.
Water shoes, swim shorts and a shirt are suggested for this expedition.
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.
