Discover Bioluminescent Wonders: Immerse yourself in the enchanting bioluminescent lagoon of Hopkins, where fluorescent algae turn the water into a natural light show.

Witness the mesmerizing dance of fish streaking through the water, creating a breathtaking blue bioluminescent spectacle.

Two Tours in one

Our expert guides, share intriguing insights into the Garifuna people, with a stop at Tugucina Gloria for a delightful traditional dinner. Savor Garifuna delicacies like Hudut, a hearty plantain and fish dish, and explore the unique flavors of Bundiga and Darasa. Immerse yourself in the rich Garifuna culture!

The Boat Tour: As the sun sets, take off on a boat journey from Hopkins to Commerce Bight. Navigate through the mangroves with our skilled captain, revealing a captivating starlit sky above. Experience the real magic as the water starts glowing in brilliant shades of blue. Marvel at the bioluminescent display as fish create luminous trails. Indulge in the urge to dip your fingers in, creating your own sparkling spray.
