  • Loved it! Great experience !! Food and fire show were spectacular

  • We loved this experience and would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to the area! As mentioned in other reviews, the boat going out into the lagoon was quite crowded. At first I was a bit put off by this but found that I actually enjoyed the camaraderie of the other guests. Definitely go swimming! I would recommend swimming away from the boat. Most everyone stays pretty close, and because the water is not deep 4ft the water gets murky and the color is not quite as vivid. My husband and I both encountered several jellyfish. Don't let this deter you while not pleasant, the sting from the moon jellyfish is not nearly as intense as what you may have encountered before. I thought the amount of time in the water was perfect. I would do this again in a heartbeat!

  • really worth it.

  • this is something really worth experiencing. Now I was too afraid to swim in the water however the experience of just being there was outstanding. the crew was very informative and friendly and the limbo/fire eater was an awesome bonus.

  • This was so much fun! I'm so happy we did this on our, it was an amazing experience. Once you get to the boat dock, they take you out and let you swim for a bit then upon your return you get a complimentary rum punch and you can review the photos they take of you in the water which were great! We bought out photos because they came out better than the ones we took ourselves.

  • The Luminous Lagoon itself is an amazing natural wonder. We would recommend the cruise, but our transport by Holiday Services driver Orlando from our Negril resort was harrowing and effectively ruined the otherwise serene experience. Our driver Orlando was unexplainedly 40 minutes late, and on a wet, busy two-lane curvy coastal road proceeded to make up that lost time by speeding excessively, and aggressively passing every vehicle we approached, often without adequate visibility around curves or over hills. When all other taxis looked like Sunday drivers, we knew we were hostage to, and endangered by wild driving. It was a harrowing 1-1/2 hour ride there. If you have assurances of a safer driver, then take advantage of the opportunity to visit the lagoon.

  • Luminous Lagoon was fantastic interesting experience would do it again

  • Absolutely amazing. Such a different experience! So much fun!!

  • We booked 2 tours through Viator. The first one was amazing!! This tour was horrible, I am a single mom traveling with 3 older kids. We were the only ones on this tour and I now know why. They said we were upgraded to a private tour that is a lie NO one had signed up for the tour. Our driver kept asking us if we partied and we all said no. After the tour we suspected he had been smoking in the van. We were tired it was late and we wanted to get back to our resort. We did not want to stay for the activities after the lagoon. On the way home he kept asking us to go to a party and we all said no. Then at one point he stopped the van got out came around and opened the door and told us to get out he wanted to show us something. We were all scared and told him NO we just wanted to go back to the resort. He got in and and kept asking if we wanted to go see his high school and other places. When we called Viator to report our experience they checked with the local tour operator who basically told them were liars.

  • This tour was amazing!
