Bioluminescent Kayaking on Florida's East Coast

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

    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.
