Swimming after dark in four feet of water (mushy bottom). The quicker one moves the more luminious the waters become.

Luminous Lagoon – A Natural Wonder
The spectacular Luminous Lagoon. The river is in Falmouth, Trelawney. Legends associate it with Spanish Conquistadores. The lagoon is the home of a rare phosphorescent microbe – a dinoflagellate - that lives where the warm fresh river waters meet the salt waters of the Caribbean. Constant water movement and flowing of the river causes the microbes to move and glow with a neon-green color. The phosphorescence is so marked that the fish swimming in the lagoon cause phosphorescence. The movement of tourist boats and swimmers cause a magical effect in the waters. This unique phenomenon is found in only four places in the world. Jamaica’s Luminous Lagoon is great place to experience it.
