    I've been going out to Indianola for the past few years during the summer to see the glowing algae at night. It is amazing!! Has anyone else been out to see it?

    Sadly though, I heard that the long dock at Indianola is closed at the moment for repairs. Does anyone know of another good place to go see the bioluminescent algae?

    Here's a decent picture of the phenomenon, if you don't know about it:

    I've observed it while running on the surface in the Caribbean and sometimes in the Mediterranean. Beautiful blanket of light covering the bow all the way up to the sail of the submarine. I always thought it a beautiful and calming sight.
