Kayaking with Glowing Plankton Under Bright Stars
Hands-down, this was probably one of the most amazing experiences of my life. We planned our trip around the phases of the moon, with the intention of seeing the solar system clearly in the sky above and brilliant glowing plankton below. Under a new moon, the conditions were amazing as we kayaked around the bay for two hours on Abe's tour. The high concentration of plankton react through touch and movement, and it was stunning to see them sparkle in your hands. Mosquito Bay is the largest bioluminescent bay in the world, and it's the closest you will get to touching a magical mass of glowing microorganisms.
