Bioluminescence Tour

Bocas Del Toro is known for its bioluminescent waters. Bioluminescence is the emission of light from deep sea organisms. The glow is pure magic, and for this reason, we recommend the tour to all of our guests.

During this tour you will be exposed to a wonder of nature that is nothing short of spectacular. The bright blue glow, referred to as bioluminescence, is caused by billions of single-celled algae or plant plankton called Noctiluca Scintillans. It’s more commonly known as sea sparkle or as the locals call it “the fire water”. When disturbed by waves or currents, the tiny cells flash causing an illumination in the water around them. Azul Paradise is located within this magical bay and our Captains offer night tours into this natural phenomenon.

It’s the perfect finale to a day in paradise. Don’t forget to look up at the stars and discover that you’re completely surrounded by a shimmering universe!
