Florida Bioluminescence Kayaking Tour
During the warm summer months, the waters of Florida’s Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon come alive with single-celled microorganisms called dinoflagellates. Every movement in the water produces a sold-light called bioluminescence! From the swirl of your paddle or the trail of a speeding school of mullet (which look like hundreds of blue-green underwater bottle rockets), to the ghostly glow of a slow-moving manatee or stingray, every movement is illumined. No need to travel to Puerto Rico to see this phenomenon. It’s right here in sunny Central Florida. You will be on the water for 90 minutes.

THE BEST TIME TO SEE BIOLUMINESCENCE: There is a 13 day window in every month where there is no moon in the sky while we are on the water at night..the window is as follows…: Book 3 days AFTER THE FULL MOON- until 1 DAY AFTER the new moon. This window will save you from the new moon crowds, while still enjoying the absolute darkness of a “New Moon” night!

Florida bioluminescence is the #1 kayaking trip in the Orlando, Cocoa Beach area. We are located about an hour from Universal Studios and The Walt Disney world area theme parks. Our “tourist tours or “visitor tours”, as the locals would call them, are ideal for a romantic evening on the water or an expedition in the name of science with the little ones (as long as they are over 5yrs of age). Our tour guides will guide you through the Indian River lagoon and show you something truly magical as we make our way through mangrove trails and the shallow flats of the lagoon.
This tandem kayak tour will spend a leisurely 90 mins on the water during this tour. You may want to leave the camera at home for this excursion, as the bioluminescence is very hard to photograph unless you have professional equipment.
