    1. You should give it a try… But nature is hard to control and there are many factors that affect phytoplankton. Every year is different.

  1. Hello!
    Any chance to see this phytoplankton at beginning of october? Is there other place in Yucatan where you can see them?
    THanks

    1. 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.

    1. 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.

      1. 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.

        1. Hola, Melissa. I recommend you send us an e-mail some weeks before you get here and we’ll tell you about the different options to see the bioluminescence (with real an updated data). info@vipholbox.com

    1. Hola, Carina. 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 🙂

  2. 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 ?

    1. 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!

    1. 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.
