I swam in this stuff once before!

From the Daily What:  Lights Out: Surfers generate beautiful bioluminescent waves off the coast of San Diego by disturbing a bloom of warmwater phytoplankton Lingulodinium polyedrum, causing a chemical reaction which produces a flash of blue light.

Though red tide can be harmful in certain circumstances, this particular algal bloom has a low-level toxicity that is safe to swim in.

It wasn't this wild when I did it, but it was pretty darn cool!
