Can you swim in bioluminescent algae?

Bioluminescence algae have serious health consequences and cannot be handled. Avoid swimming on waters with algal blooms despite the stunning colors of the algae blooms. Contact can cause infections and death. It is recommended that the dog be avoided.

Where is bioluminescent algae found?

Bioluminescent algae in Kilifi Creek are typically found in the shallow waters near the shore, particularly around the areas where the water is calm and can be easily disturbed. The best spots to witness this natural phenomenon are near the beaches and the edges of the creek where the algae congregate. The bioluminescence is most visible at night, especially during new moon phases when the sky is darkest.

Visitors often experience this magical display by taking guided tours or dhow cruises that sail through these bioluminescent hotspots.
