Bob and Molly were excellent guides for the 90 minutes we spent out on the water, during which time we had close encounters with manatees, less luck with alligators only seeing one, plus plenty of other wildlife. An experience for novices that makes a change from the theme parks.

Did the bioluminescent your and was amazing. Really cool experience. Every paddl lights up the water and when fish swim you can see the streaks. Well worth the drive

We took 6 adults and 11 teens out on the Bio luminescent Tour. We had so much fun! The water was amazing. The tour company was very organized. The 3 guides that came out with our youth were friendly and knowledgeable. We are planning a return trip with the Boy Scouts! Highly recommend this trip.

I have been on numerous tours with A Day Away, most in the Indian River Lagoon, but even on their Silver River trip. They are fantastic! I brought a group of 40 last night for the bioluminescence tour. They have no control over the weather or the strength of the bioluminescence, so no reviewer should rate them based on this.... More

Went on the night time Bio Luminescent Tour and it was intimidating due to it being very dark...BUT the stars where amazing and every movement glowed in the water. Very hard to explain but magical experience. Something everyone should do. Our guide was very nice and informative.

I've lived in Titusville my entire life, and I've seen the bioluminescence before, but not to this magnification. My brother and I went out on a Sunday night, and I was surprised at how many other people were there to kayak as well. Once I saw how well everything was organized, I was more at ease. The divided us all... More

Our family, with an 8 year old, had a really wonderful time on this adventure! This low cost ($30 an adult) activity was very worth the cost. The kayak equipment are kept in great shape, the guides are great, and the routes are fun and easy to navigate- even for someone who has never kayaked. Our family has done two... More

When you make the reservation the launch time is listed as 8:15- the actual launch doesn't take place until 8:45-9 p.m. as they wait for darkness to fall. You get a quick lesson on kayaking and then are sent out into the water. The kayaks seat two or one. As soon as you start paddling into the river the water... More

My teenage son and I were thrilled to take this kayak tour! You leave the shore about 8:15pm and arrive back about 10:15pm. For 2-hours, you will kayak on the Indian River in the dark under the direction of several guides. The water glowed with every movement! Mullet jumped all around us and zoomed through the water like shooting stars.... More

The entire experience was great! I am a Floridian, and purchased tickets for my boyfriend's birthday - so we could try something new in the Central Florida area. The bio-luminescent tour is a little pricey, but worth it. It makes it very convenient for them to have the kayaks and all the safety gear you near right at the site.... More
