The 7 Steps of a Bioluminescence Tour

  1. Once we have all gathered at the location of your bioluminescence tour, your guide will fit you with life jackets and go over the details of your trip.
  2. It’s a good idea to wear bug spray to avoid being harassed by mosquitos.
  3. We will launch into the water just after sunset. Immediately, guests usually encounter manatees and wild birds in the cove before they have ventured out into the Indian River Lagoon.
  4. As the sky darkens, you can begin to see the glow in the water from the paddle, kayak movement, and the movement of fish and other marine life. As we paddle closer to the shore, it is usually completely dark at this time. We begin to take in the magic of bioluminescence. Every movement, from manatee, fish, stingrays produces an almost supernatural glow of aquamarine light. As one of our guests said recently, “it’s a truly amazing experience, like watching fireworks underwater”.
  5. The bioluminescent kayaking tour is usually 1.5 to 2 hours. Adventure Kayak will provide you will water, a short lesson on kayaking for beginners, and everything you need to have the best experience possible.
  6. This tour is great for couples as well as families and small and large groups alike. Large groups often experience even more bio as there is more movement going on in the tour.
  7. You can read more reviews by searching for us on Google or Trip Advisor.

Bioluminescent Florida Calendar

The warm summer months, when the sky is dark because the moon is new, are the best time for a bioluminescence kayak tour in Florida. Although nights with a full moon offer their beauty, they are not the best time for a bioluminescent kayaking adventure.

Bioluminescence Kayaking Tour Review

We took the bioluminesce tour and had an awesome time! The guides were great! Very knowledgeable about the lagoon and the area in general. I didn’t get any pictures because I was too busy playing with the water and the jellies. We’ll definitely come back for a mangrove tour next time we’re in town.
