Where to see bioluminescence in Florida
The Indian River Lagoon in Brevard County, Florida is among the best places to see bioluminescence in Florida. One of the best ways to experience the bioluminescence is on an evening kayak tour during the summer months, June – September.

Florida’s Wild Birds – Kayaking the Cocoa Beach Thousand Islands
The Atlas V Launch – Kayak with Rockets in Cocoa Beach!
Saturday, Oct. 31, 2015: Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
What a treat we had today while on the water! The Atlas V rocket took off soaring into the big blue Florida sky from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, at 12:13 pm. Needless to say, the group we had out on the water were psyched to be able to watch a launch from the water in the Indian River Lagoon.
The Atlas V delivered a GPS satellite into space for the US Air Force. The GPS IIF-11 is the 11th in a series of 12 satellites for the Air Force and is developed to improve navigational information for our troops across the globe.
If you want to Kayak with Rockets in Cocoa Beach, the NASA launch schedule for the remainder of 2015 is scheduled as follows:
Kayaking in Cocoa Beach’s Mangrove Tunnels
Kayaking year round with Adventure Kayak. Today we explored the mangrove tunnels of Cocoa Beach and immediately spotted a Great Blue Heron fishing along the water’s edge.
The red mangrove roots provide shelter for fish and reptiles alike.
The mangrove tunnels of Cocoa Beach’s Thousand Islands are perfect for protection from strong winds, but can be challenging to navigate through without a tour guide.
An Anhinga, also known as the “snake bird” sits on a tree branch while drying it’s wings in the sun. Anhinga dive under water to fish and cannot fly until their wings are dry enough. Ramp Road Park in Cocoa Beach is one of 2 public launching parks that provide access to the Thousand Islands. Ramp Road Park is best to launch from during the week and guided tours are not allowed on the weekends.
just another sunny day on the water and we spotted the majestic Great Blue Heron fishing along the shore.

Bioluminescence Kayaking Tours
Excitement mounts as we prepare for our bioluminescent kayaking tour!
Our guide leads us out into the cove. While we wait for the sun to set, a blue heron rests on the post near his kayak.
We paddle out some and stop to observe the manatee surfacing near our kayaks.
as well as a Navy Survival Instructor on Staff, you will be amazed at the information and enjoyment of your kayaking tour! Just take a look at what our guests are saying:
“What a great trip! Kayaking through the open waters and mangrove tunnels. We saw a manatee right off and some dolphins. The guides did a great job of accommodating the abilities and interests of all of the people in the group. The instruction before we began was really helpful in navigating the craft. The guides made sure we were hydrated with their water coolers. Equipment was in great condition. It was a great trip a great price. We look forward to going again soon to explore a new area. Thank you especially to Matt who was an excellent guide!!!”
