Experience the magic of Bioluminescence
One of the most magical things you can experience is seeing the glow of Bioluminescence. Bioluminescence is the creation of light through a biological process. In the ocean there are literally thousands of animals that have the ability to glow in the dark for a variety of reasons.
There are 3 varieties of bioluminescent creatures that live nearshore in Caribbean waters, and are commonly seen. With right conditions the concentrations of these organisms is off the charts. Producing a one-of-a-kind visual experience… Fortunately the guides at the Sweet Spot know where to find these animals, and we do tours in both Cayman and Honduras.
On the northside of Grand Cayman there is a small protected bay that is one of the best Bioluminescence Bays in the world. Millions of glowing micro-organisms put on an amazing light show in the dark water. Watch your hands, feet and paddle glow magically and naturally.
The Sweet Spot Cayman does trips to the Bio Bay almost every night (conditions allowing) by Kayak, Boat and SUP. These tours are very informative 3-stop Eco-tours. Where you will learn about the nature, the island and the stars. We normally see at least 2 different types of Bioluminescence, with the guide giving detailed explanations of everything you see.
The custom made Bio Boat was specifically designed for this tour, letting you get up close and personal with the Bioluminescence while riding in comfort. Perfect for families and kids. For a little more adventure there is also a Kayak Tour using double kayaks and flashlights.
The Sweet Spot Honduras also has a Bio Tour that visits a Bio Bay full of glowing plankton. Offering tours by boat, kayak and SUP. Running nightly, as long as viewing conditions are optimal. On most night we see at least 2 different types of bioluminescence and millions of glowing stars.
