Nature Adventures at Night

Florida's natural wonders are not just for the waking hours; these nocturnal adventures offer a whole new look at the great outdoors.

A tomboy at heart, I’d often spend my childhood days building tree forts, catching tadpoles and
digging for worms. These days, work eats up most of my daylight hours, so I’ve discovered a new way to get my nature fix: at night.

Without a doubt, the outdoors takes on a whole new look long after the sun sets. So forgo a little shut eye and get ready for some real outdoor fun. It’s totally worth it.

Airboat Adventure

For adventure junkies, hop aboard an airboat and search for the glowing red eyes of alligators. Boggy Creek Airboat Rides in Kissimmee offers night tours in the headwaters of the Everglades.

SCUBA Dive in the Dark

Take diving to a new level – and see a new cast of critters – by plunging into pitch-black waters with a flashlight. Check Depth Perception Dive Center in Tampa to schedule a date.

Bioluminescent Kayaking

If you prefer to be topside, slip into a kayak for a bioluminescent tour, where every movement in the water glows. A Day Away Kayak Tours in Titusville offers seasonal trips in the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.

Sea Turtle Walks

Nature lovers can witness sea turtles lumber ashore to lay eggs on the beach. Several places offer seasonal walks, including Sea Turtle Preservation Society in Melbourne Beach. Just one caveat: Do not disturb the mama turtles.
