Port Lincoln’s glowing ocean: watch the amazing video

By Lana Guineay

One to add to the life to do list: swim in a glowing sea. The shores of Proper Bay near Port Lincoln have been glowing fluorescent blue over the last few nights, thanks to a rare explosion of bioluminescent algae.

Even better, the team at Port Lincoln production company Missing Link Media were there to capture the light show in all its glory, and the video has taken off on social media.

The stunning footage shows the rare natural phenomenon, where microscopic algae glow intensely when disturbed. But if you’re keen to catch it in real life, you’d better be fast – it only lasts a few days.

It’s much warmer to just sit back, hit ‘fullscreen’ and press play – and enjoy the ocean rave:
