In a marine environment, many living organisms have the capability to emit light for survival and reproduction.

In the right conditions, locals and tourists alike can be graced with the chance to see the water light up, producing a unique and memorable visual experience.

On the north-side of Grand Cayman there is a small protected bay that is one of the best Bio Bays in the world. Millions of glowing microorganisms put on an amazing light show in the dark water, and you can watch your hands, feet and paddles glow beautifully. Our location in Grand Cayman conducts Bio Bay tours almost every night (conditions allowing) by kayak and boat.
