Bioluminescent, Full Moon and Comb Jelly Tours

Comb Jelly - bioluminescence orlandoFlorida Bioluminescence Kayak Tours are available from June through September for DINOFLAGELLATES, “Dino” Bio: when the Indian River Lagoon waters are the warmest.¬†Adventure Kayak near Orlando offers bioluminescent kayaking tours shortly after sunset when there is no full moon.
If you missed the “Dino” bio season, check into a Comb Jelly Tour in the Fall and Winter and ask us about moonlight paddles offered year round!
Comb Jelly Tours are available mid-October through March. Comb Jellies have tentacles just like Jelly Fish, but theirs are ‘sticky’ as opposed to ‘stinging’! Comb Jellies are NOT Jelly Fish, but rather¬† thought of as “the spiders of the sea”. Roughly 4 inches in size, Comb Jellies are bioluminescent and safe to touch.
Bio Tours are $40.00/adults  $30/Children 16 & under

Embark on this spectacular kayaking adventure and you will slowly begin to see the swirls from your paddles producing a glow in the water that is caused by bioluminescence – living lights in the water. As it gets dark, you will see almost everything in the water, from schools of darting fish, to West Indian Manatees and Atlantic Bottle-nose dolphins. Even the flow of water over the sea grass generates a ghostly bioluminescent radiance! Every movement produces a beautiful blue-green glowing light. As you paddle, you will experience the brilliant wave pattern that forms as the kayaks slice through the water. If you stroke your hand through the water, your skin will be covered with a green flashing glitter. Bioluminescent kayaking is a truly one-of-a-kind, ‘must see’ experience!
