I booked this for myself and my wife as part of our honeymoon and she was petrified of kayaking with the manatees and gators incase they knocked us in the water. Needles to say when we finished she absolutely loved every minute. We spent a long time in amongst the manatees and it was a once in a lifetime opportunity.... More

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

My relation with A Day Away started with inquiring about all the imminently available tours for a rainy week. Not only were they courteous in dealing with all my inquisitions, they were professional from start to finish. For someone who has been traveling, around the globe, since a young age it is personally important for me to partake and appreciate... More

You moved to Titusville for all the natural sights available. What better way to be a nature lover than in a kayak. Get going. It's fun,informative and great exercise. Today is the day FOR YOUR DAY AWAY KAYAK TRIP on one of Titusville's many waterways to see alligators,Armadillos and birds.

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

FYI: There are 2 tours available. One leaves at 6:45 pm, the other at 9 pm. This review focuses on the 6:45 tour. 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
