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

This was my second Bio trip. We were in the second group of three with about 25 boats in each group. As we paddled into a canal it looked like hundreds of fire flies lighting up every time you paddled and when you swished your hand in the water. One person in my party actually had a mullet jump out... More

This tour stole my heart! Our tour leaders were quick, efficient, friendly and funny. Everything was run smoothly and the tour itself was breathtaking. I so enjoyed kayaking at night and watching the water glow with aquatic fireflies! The bio-luminescence was so awesome and the entire tour was leisurely and scenic. I haven't kayaked in a while, and never at... More

My teenage daughter and I spent half a Saturday learning from Ron with A Day Away. We took the Intro to Kayaking class, and it was the perfect example of time and money WELL spent. As a teacher myself, I was impressed with Ron's professionalism, knowledge, flexibility, positive attitude, and obvious love for kayaking AND for teaching, He was awesome,... More

We took the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge tour and were really pleased . Our guide Josh was full of wonderful information about the animals that are in the refuge but also knew about the island itself and the surrounding areas animals and plant life. He had a great sense of humor and we felt very comfortable asking questions as well.... More

We came for the bioluminescent night tour. I called, to book an appointment. The girl who answered was very nice, and told me since it was the last day of the comb jelly season, we won't be able to see much. She said it was up to me whether I decided to book it or not, which I did. I... More

We had a great morning trip, guided by Josh, aka "Red Beard". A lovely day with good company and a very knowledgeable guide. We saw so many manatee and dolphins I lost count. An international flavor to the tour with an English couple and a Japanese couple. I recommend this kayak experience highly.
