The captain will give you a brief history of the historical town of Falmouth, he will take you in the right area in the Lagoon where you will be able to see blue lights behind the wake and around the boat as fish swim by. The Luminous Lagoon is a natural phenomenon caused by dinoflagellate that live in the water where fresh and salt water meets, store sunlight and release it when they are disturbed. The best experience comes on a bright sunny day coupled with a dark, clear night. This will be one of the coolest and most unexpected experiences you'll ever have. The Water is about 4-8 feet deep, bottom can be soft and squishy. You can touched the water and watch a trail of blue light follow, you will be in the water for about 30 mins. The best lights come from splashing around in the water that no one else has been in. It can be difficult to try and capturing your own pics, their's a photographer on board so he takes all pictures which you can purchase at the end of the tour. The tour duration (boat ride/swim) is about an hour. If you prefer not to get wet, you can stay in the boat and watch others participate.
