Went out last night on the night kayaking tour with Josh, fantastic guide who did a great job. The conditions were less than ideal, rainy, cold and low water levels, and he made the trip fantastic. We were able to see the comb jellyfish and some out of season bioluminescent plankton which were awesome. Unfortunately, we didn't get to see... More

We had a morning trip confirmed. Drove an hour from Orlando to the meeting place and nobody was there. The weather was cool and very windy, but their confirmation explains that weather in Florida changes easily and even thought it is raining at your location doesn't mean it will be raining at the launch. When we called to see where... More

We made this a girls trip to go see the bioluminescence and it was excellent. We did careful planning to choose a day close to the new moon so there would be no extra light. We booked early since we knew it would fill up on a good day. Their calendar shows what nights might have better viewing. Do your... More

This tour far exceeded my hopes and expectations from the moment we stepped into our kayaks. Tim R., our tour guide, was informative and friendly, making for an interesting tour. We saw and heard dolphin around us, saw mullet jumping all over, saw beautiful bioluminescents and comb jellyfish. Being out there on the water, at night, with nothing but nature... More

A few tips: Be sure to follow the directions they email you - they're very easy and they take you exactly where you need to go. Cell phone reception in the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge is... More

This tour was so amazing! We took the early tour at 6:45pm and got to catch the sunset out on the water first. After suiting up and getting instructions from our wonderful tour guide "Red Beard" we got in our kayaks and were off. While following our guide he was great at pointing out all of the sights around us,... More

My wife and I took this tour after reading about it on Trip Advisor and were wowed by the experience. It's hard to describe the unique and breathtaking experience of seeing fish glow and splash all around under a stunning canopy of stars and the Milky Way. The fish almost sound like they were applauding us. Definitely worth the trip.
