Reply Not really. The season starts mid-May and permits are valid from that date. Reply Gosh, I wish I would have had that inmrofation earlier! Reply Hello, I would love to see the bioluminescence. Will it be over by October? Thank you! Sabrina Reply You should give it a try… But nature is hard to control and there are many factors that affect phytoplankton. Every year is different. Reply Hello! Any chance to see this phytoplankton at beginning of october? Is there other place in Yucatan where you can see them? THanks Reply We don’t know about any other place in Yucatan… Regarding October. It’s hard to tell. Many factors affect phytoplankton. Every year is different. Reply Is there a chance to see the bioluminiscent sea in december? Reply You will probably have to go offshore. But you should check once you’re here! Reply Pingback: Starry Night Out – the unknown beaches Is it possible to exprience this glowing ocean during end of December ? Or as you said season starts mid-May ? Reply You can experience glowing in December, but you may need to take a tour and get to more remote places (by kayak). We are checking how that works as many people have asked and we want to start offering a tour to take visitors to that spot. Reply hi there, has there been any updates on a kayak tour to see the bioluminescence? We are traveling in October and would love to to something like that. I haven’t been able to find any tours thus far. Reply Hola, Melissa.

The Maldivas counts with the same or similar phenomenom (there are different types of bioluminescence). But I can assure you that this happens also here. It’s one of my favourite activities during the summer 🙂 Reply Hi , I’m coming to Mexico for 2 weeks from 1st June. Have you organized any tour to see the glowing ? Is it visible on shore ? Reply Hola, Ana María. You need to find a dark spot. That means: no lights from hotels or even the moon. And go to the beach and check. Of course there are many factors that can affect the presence of this phenomenom; it’s nature. But you should go and try. In order to see it you have to move the water… that means, it’s better if you swim in it 🙂 When you get to Holbox, come to our office and we’ll tell you more! Reply Hi we are now at holbox, what is the best spot? Greetings Loes Reply You need no lights, so try to escape from the hotel zone. And check the moon schedule. Reply Hi. Do you know if it is possible to take pictures of the light? Do i need a speciale camera? Reply It’s hard because it lights up when it is moved. A week ago was so intense you could see it in the waves… but in general, you need to be moving it and a long exposure. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
