Bioluminescence Kayaking Tours in Cocoa Beach

Summer is the Peak Bioluminescence Kayaking Season in Florida

Bioluminescence Kayaking Season

The peak of bioluminescence kayaking tour season occurs in Florida’s warmer summer season throughout Cocoa Beach, including the Thousand Islands and Canaveral National Seashore.


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 own beauty, they are not the best time for a bioluminescent kayaking adventure.

Google Reviews – What People are Saying About Us

We booked a kayak tour for 6 people the week before we came to Florida. Definitely call beforehand to make sure they have enough kayaks for your group! Our tour was in the morning, and we went with 2 other families. Cameron was our guide, and he was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. We really appreciated all the facts about the ecosystem, they helped us understand the things we were seeing. An amazing experience! We saw comb jellies, osprey, manatees, and dolphins!

My friend and I decided to take a kayak tour while we were visiting Cocoa Beach and it turned out to be the highlight of our trip! Ed, our guide, was fantastic. He had a great sense of humor and was very knowledgeable and chatty. We saw dolphins, comb jellies, lots of birds, fish, beautiful scenery and finally a manatee when we got back to the dock. Highly recommend this experience to anyone looking for a fun and relaxing way to see Florida’s mangroves and wildlife up close and personal. 🙂

When we first arrived it was a little confusing where to go with all the different friendly kayak companies there. Once greeted and shown where to go everything was very smooth, efficient and organized, no surprises. The tour was spectacular, the guides extremely knowledge, a night of great family fun. We enjoyed it immensely, the memories that will last a lifetime. What a way to celebrate my daughters birthday💜 If we could we’d give it a 10 star rating.
