Itinerary

Your guide will meet you at the bay and you will be kitted out with all of the necessary equipment, this will include kayaks, paddles and life vests. And then the tour will start, almost immediately.

Your experienced guide will lead you out into the bay and show you the best areas for making the sea glow. Mosquito Bay is home to a very specific type of bioluminescence; here, the glowing is caused by ‘dinoflagellates’, a form of plankton which when agitated, can cause the surface of the ocean to glitter a blue-green color. The dinoflagellates gather in lagoons and bays as the narrow opening to the open ocean, prevents them from escaping.

As you paddle around, just take a moment to appreciate the tranquility and beauty of your surroundings. This is an extremely rare opportunity as there are only 5 known bioluminescent bays worldwide.
