We had a great time with A Day Away Kayak tour. The bio luminescence was so bright it looked like little crystals in the water. Such a great experience, I highly recommend it. Thanks to Aimee, Kaitlyn, and Savannah who were our guides. If you haven't done this tour you need to book it today! It's an experience you won't... More

A friend and I booked a private tour with A Day Away Kayak Tours and had an amazing experience! We saw manatees and a dolphin up close, a couple of alligators (thankfully they moved before we got too close) and lots of beautiful big birds! Our guide Josh lead us at a pace we were comfortable with and shared all... More

This was the 1st time our family had ever been kayaking, family of 4, 2 adults 11yo boy and 10yo girl. Be aware that no bathroom facilities are available within miles of the launch point and getting there will probably take longer than expected. Be sure to follow the directions that they provide and do NOT depend on GPS. When... More

My husband and I got a tandem kayak for the bioluminescent tour. I advise booking on a night with no moon, as algae blooms have decreased the visibility of the bioluminescence, and I advise staying close to one of the guides to get the most out of what he or she can tell you. I put down more than three... More

We took the nighttime bioluminescent kayak tour and had a great time! There were four of us in our group, and we had either paddle boarded, kayaked etc before- but never at night. The guides were wonderful at keeping us all together and sharing some Florida wildlife info. During our 90 minute tour we saw dolphin and lots of fish.... More

Our tour on Saturday night was great. The Bio-luminescence was beautiful. Fish streaking though the water were a special treat.

Our Bio trip was cancelled due to inclement weather. When they called us to tell us the tour was cancelled, they asked if we wanted to reschedule, received a gift certificate, or receive a refund. We opted for the refund because we were returning home early the next day. When we received the refund, it was not for the full... More

In regards to our weather policies we do appreciate being made aware that they seem unwarranted or unfair. We are looking at them again to confirm or deny the fairness of them in light of other operators in our industry in our area. In response to the "Beware" portion of the caption of the review. I must inform readers that... More

On vacation with my girlfriend and friends, we looked at a lot of kayak trips and finally chose this one for its promise of manatee and dolphin encounters. I have to say this is even better than they say it is. The guides were friendly and kept everyone relaxed and having a good time. We got to observe the manatees... More

We had a group of ten (5 couples) go on the bioluminescent kayak tour at the end of June. We followed A Day Away Kayak Tours' advice and went on a dark night (no moon). The staff were friendly and explained everything in detail before beginning the tour. At first, you paddle around a bit waiting for it to become... More
