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

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.

This trip was great, it’s a must see. It’s only a short ride over from Orlando about 45 mins to an hour. The way the fish light up under the water, it look light a fireworks show. It truly is amazing and we saw dolphins and manatees. It was an overall great trip and the guides give you the freedom... More

We went on the bioluminescence tour and it was THE coolest thing we've done here! The water glows with movement and in calm areas it looks like sparkles just under the surface. Make sure you grab a handful when it's really dark and let the water run down off your arm. So cool. We also saw some dolphins and a... More

I was looking for fun outdoor activity to do with my family on a day trip from Orlando that could be paired with a meal at Dixie Crossroads. We did the Manatee encounter group kayak on Merritt Island Natural Wildlife Refuge. The tandem kayaks are easy to get in and out of and are relatively simple to learn for a... More

We took the bioluminesence kayaking tour. Cool tour. Leave as sun is setting. As you paddle it looks like glow in the dark as you stir the water with your paddle. We were led to place where generally they can count on schools of fish. As fish move through the water, you can see the glow as they go through... More
