Bioluminescence Night Cruise
Guests join the Ocean Institute aboard the R/V Sea Explorer for a nighttime cruise off the coast of Dana Point exploring the nocturnal world of marine birds, sea lions, and bioluminescent plankton. Learn how some marine life glows in the dark!
A meter net is deployed 600 feet deep to capture thousands of these drifting organisms which have the ability to make their own light. *Note that forces of nature determine the abundance of bioluminescence at any given time.
