    Montego Bay

    If you are looking to start off your evening in a fun and novel way, you may want to check out Glistening Waters Restaurant and Marina just outside Montego Bay for dining, disco, and drinks overlooking the glowing river.


    Glistening Waters is in Falmouth, which is just a few minutes east of Montego Bay and it’s a glowing lagoon that will amaze you! It’s a restaurant and marina where you can eat dinner and then take a beautiful night cruise/tour of the “luminous” lagoon.

    When the water is disturbed, the microscopic organisms in the water glow and create and “eerie”, glistening light.

    This phenomenon is said to occur in only 3 places worldwide!

    This phenomenon is only found in Indonesia, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico and Jamaica. The tour guides in Jamaica’s claim theirs is the brightest.

    Here is some information on the “how and why” given by some scientists from the John Hopkins University.

    The eerie glow comes from small micro-organisms that emit a flash of light when disturbed. Jamaica’s luminous lagoon is one of three places in the world where these microscopic organisms live and create this natural phenomenon, known as bioluminescence.

    It’s said that out of the three, the luminous lagoon in Jamaica is the brightest in the world; a fact that has and continues to awe scientists and visitors alike.

    The research shows the lagoon is the best place to see these microscopic organisms called dinoflagellates or pryodinium bahamene, because of two reasons.

    First, there are literally millions of tiny micro-organisms living in the lagoon.

    Secondly, the lagoon is formed at the point where the Martha Brae River meets the Caribbean Sea, and the dinoflagellates thrive in the layers where the salt and fresh water combine into brakish waters.

    The organisms glow brightest in shallow, warm water, and generally the lagoon is about 3-8 feet, or more, in depth.
