Bioluminescence Tour Belize

Bioluminescence Tour

Experience the seasonal bioluminescence tour during Belize’s dry season from December to May. Cruise in the Anderson Lagoon in Sittee River Village, where harmless microorganisms called dinoflagellates emit a blue glow when disturbed. The mixture of salt and fresh water causes the lagoon to be warm; hence, it is locally known as “burning wata.” Glide down the lagoon under a starlit sky as you witness fish, jellyfish, and other marine life, with giant mangroves lining the tour route. A low-light camera is essential for this tour to capture the blue glow of the bioluminescence. This night tour offers a unique opportunity to see the fascinating beauty of nature.
