An interesting phenomenon where several living species emit light thanks to the trick of specific chemical reactions inside their body.  It is possible to appreciate by sailing in a glass-bottom boat or by snorkelling. 


You will start the tour in the projection room with the aid of a sea biologist and you will understand the dynamics of this bioluminescent phenomenon and its manifestations in nature. The theory will start with a  briefing with all the information required regarding safety and the preparation of the snorkeling equipment. Set sail in a glass-bottom boat and observe the sea brightening up with sparks and then head to a bay for night snorkeling. You will dive with a mask and snorkel in this magical luminescent liquid. This experience is a show of nature, matched with information and magic.
