Kayaking Through Mangrove Tunnels Near Cocoa Beach

Florida is home to some of the most beautiful mangroves in the United States. These mangroves then form Florida’s enchanted mangrove tunnels. Even though they were developed to help control the expanding mosquito population, they have expanded to spectacular canopies and are now home to fantastic fauna and many species of animals.

Our guests enjoy mangrove tunnel adventures, which travel through mangrove channels administered by various eco-tour operators and parks. Book a tour today to explore some of Florida’s enchanted mangrove tunnels with Adventure Kayak of Cocoa Beach.

Guide worked with our group and met our various needs. Saw dolphins, manatees, horseshoe crabs, a variety of birds, and kayaked thru a tight mangrove tree path. Very cool!

Amanda D.

We had a beautiful trip today! Darius was extremely knowledgeable about the area and all the animals and birds. He was an excellent guide! Kayaking through the mangrove tunnels was quite an experience. Highly recommend!

Caitlin G.

We had an awesome time with our guide Cameron. Didn’t see any aquatic mammals, but my kid got to hold a comb jelly and the trip through the mangrove tunnel was well worth the effort. I can’t wait to do it again another year!

Kayak During the Bioluminescence & Comb Jelly Season

Bioluminescent kayaking tours are available from June through September for Dinoflagellates, “Dino” Bio: when the Indian River Lagoon waters are the warmest. Adventure Kayak of Cocoa Beach is located near Orlando and offers kayaking tours that explore the natural bioluminescence of Florida shortly after sunset when there is no full moon.

If you missed the “Dino” bio season, join a comb jelly tour in the fall and winter, or ask us about moonlight paddles offered year-round. Check out Justine Schluntz’s blog on comb jellies from Mexico!

Comb jelly kayak tours are available from mid-October through March. Comb jellies have tentacles just like jellyfish, but theirs are ‘sticky’ instead of ‘stinging’! Comb jellies are NOT jellyfish, but rather thought of as “the spiders of the sea.” Roughly 4 inches in size, Comb Jellies are bioluminescent and safe to touch.

Bioluminescent Kayaking Tours – A Spectacular Adventure

Embark on a spectacular bioluminescence kayaking adventure, and you will slowly begin to see the swirls from your paddles producing a light blue 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 seagrass 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 true one-of-a-kind, ‘must-see’ experience!
