The Luminous Lagoon is home to one of the most spectacular natural phenomena in the world. The lagoon is home to billions of microscopic organisms which glow an iridescent blue / green colour when the water is disturbed. Boats run continuously from the Glistening Waters restaurant after dark. Just turn up and wait for the next boat to arrive to take you on the half hour tour. You’ll see bright flashes of light in the water as fish swim around the boat and when the boat is moving the micro organisms leave a bright green glow in its wake. The boat will stop for you to take a swim if you want to and watch the water glow all around you with every stroke you take. If you’re feeling adventurous make sure you bring your swimwear so that you can take a dip in the lagoon and see the water glow around you. The base of the shallow lagoon is silty and muddy so you may prefer to wear something on your feet if you swim. The guide will also give you some history of the Falmouth area and a scientific explanation of the bioluminescent phenomenon.
