Our guide Darius was the best! They arranged a last minute trip with six of us. We saw tons of wildlife, held jellyfish and horse shoe crab shells! An incredible adventure.

My wife and I took the Manatee Kayak tour. It was fantastic! Our guide Ed was very personable and knowledgeable. We ran into plenty of Manatee and dolphins. Definitely recommend and would again.

Kayak During the Bioluminescence & Comb Jelly Season

Bioluminescent Kayaking Florida 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. Check out Justine Schluntz’s blog on comb jellies from Mexico!

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.

Bioluminescent Kayaking Tours – A Spectacular Adventure

Embark on this spectacular bioluminescence 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 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!
