Did the Manatee and Dolphin kayaking trip with my husband and our three kids ages 10, 9 & 6. It is beyond words what you may experience on this tour. If you love nature and a bit of adventure you should not be disappointed! By far one of the favorites of our week in Florida! Our tour guides were so... More

I booked this tour with a friend not knowing what to expect. I was told it was cool and not to be afraid to kayak that it was easy. after a quick tutorial from the guides and some safety instructions we got to the boats. the kayaks were study, easy to maneuver, and I never once was scared. the trip...

This was my third Biloluminescent trip and it was the best yet! As soon as the kayaks hit the water our wake, the paddle strokes and the water from the bow was glowing a beautiful bright blue. We had a lot of fun watching the glowing streaks in the water from fish swimming by and playing in the water with... More

We booked this trip just a couple of days in advance after reading all of the positive reviews. We’re a middle aged couple and first time Kayakers, so we were a little apprehensive about keeping up with the tour. We needn’t have worried. The tour guides give you basic paddling instruction before you set out, and it isn’t rocket science.... More

The bioluminescent tour exceeded my expectations by miles! Highly recommend printing out the information they email you with your confirmation because it provides a list of what to bring/expect as well as easy step-by-step directions (leave early though bc it's in the middle of no where). The staff was extremely friendly, knowledge and organized. Our tour guides (Dave & Amber)... More

Spent a week in Florida - half at the theme parks and half at the beach. The night Kayak trip was a favorite for the entire family (including pre teen and teens). The Bioluminescent water was incredible. I never knew something like that even existed. There were hundreds if not thousands of small fish jumping all over the lagoon at... More

This is a lifetime experience!!!!!!! From the beginning it was amazing. It was like being on Pandora from Avatar. The water glowing as we paddled and put our hands in it is something I will never forget. We saw manatees and dolphins, went thru a bull shark nursery and the mullet fish explosion jumping in our kayaks not to mention... More

We did the bioluminescent tour last night (the 10:45pm trip) and I was blown away by how spectacular it was. I have done a lot of traveling all over the world and this was definitely in my top 5 experiences. I had no idea we had this in Florida! As soon as we hit the water, it lit up. They... More

My husband, myself and my two children (ages 7 & 14) went on the morning Manatee & Dolphin Encounter. All four of us enjoyed it (no easy feat for this family). Why we loved it: -- Guides were friendly, funny, and genuinely seemed to love their job. -- Guides were knowledgable about all the wildlife we saw. -- Very nice... More

Can not say enough good things about this tour! Guides were amazing, saw dolphin,manatee and tons of mullet. Can not believe how beautiful the water was with its glow. Everyone should do this, can't wait to go again. Several mullet did jump into the kayaks but added to the fun ...guides great at getting fish out if you can't
