Bioluminescent Kayaking Tours on Florida's East Coast

By: Kevin Mims


Ready for a new paddling adventure? Since it is summer, bioluminescent paddling tours on the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon are in full swing. The cool thing about these tours is that they are conducted at night and with every movement, the water glows!

Yep, that's right - the water actually glows. This phenomenon is caused by tiny bioluminescent plankton, and when movement occurs, streaks of blue light can be seen. Fish look like blue comets, and the water around your kayak and paddle glows as you move along. Really neat stuff.

The best time for a bioluminescent paddling trip is during the warm summer months, and especially during really dark nights, so choose dates accordingly. A Day Away Kayak Tours can hook you up with a great experience, and on the website you'll find all the info needed to make it happen. They even have a handy moonphase calendar, so you can choose the days that work best.

Just think how much cooler the bioluminescent tours would be using a See Through Canoe. Instead of just seeing them to the right, left, front or back of you, you could feel like you are among them with their lights shining through the entire vessel and literally ALL around you!
