Join us for this magical experience of the glowing waters where you will step into your favorite Disney movie Avatar!

Responsible for the beautiful bluish-white flashes that occur when seawater is disturbed at night, is a small micro-organism called dinoflagellates. Seeing schools of fish or maybe a dolphin activate these tiny critters is nothing short of a miracle and belongs on everybody’s bucket list.

This bioluminescence kayak tour takes you out on the Indian River, where there are plenty of manatees, dolphins, and other marine life in the area. So chances are you will see some marine life up close and you can experience the magnificent light trails created by these animals in the water.

The best time to see bioluminescence is around the New Moon, when there is no moonlight reflecting on the water. However, the week surrounding the New Moon is still a great time to see the bioluminescence. You should plan well in advance if you plan to go on a New Moon night, or on the weekend as these tours sell out.
