Reason #133 to Take a Cruise….
On a cruise to the Caribbean you will find the most beautiful shades of aqua, cerulean and turquoise in the water.
The color of water is determined by the absorption and scattering of light, according to NASA. Water is quick to absorb red wavelengths and slow to absorb blue wavelengths, leaving clear water looking blue. The amount of phytoplankton in the water is also a major factor in the color of water because phytoplankton create chlorophyll, which absorbs red and blue light waves but projects green light.
