Bioluminescence Tour
Bioluminescence is a natural occurrence caused by algae. There are few places in the world where this phenomenon can be experienced and Hopkins offers a unique vantage point. Beneath a new moon when the stars are at their brightest, this boat tour takes you to Anderson Lagoon. In the darkness, you’ll notice a neon glow surrounding the boat. This bright blue glow is caused by the bioluminescent algae. You’ll also be able to spot jellyfish and schools of fish darting around. This tour is seasonal and is best done during dry season under a new moon to experience the full magic.
