We took a moonlight tour last Saturday. There were 6 of us. We were able to take our time exploring a bird refuge, a lagoon with bio-luminescent jelly fish, and spent a good amount of time in the open water drifting in the moonlight. By far one of the best events our group of friends has done together. Our guide... More

Manatees sought us out. These giant, gentle "cows" of the sea lolled around our kayaks; diving beneath and popping up again like old friends. Dolphins, ospreys, interesting fish and shells were great too, but the manatees were the stars of the afternoon.. I've never had an encounter like this with a wild creature. We did this trip as a cruise... More

We went on the Sunset/Night tour and were very happy. It was just us and a guide which provided a comfortable way to ask questions. We are from the North In Wisconsin so it was all new to us. The sunset was lovely and peaceful for sure. We heard the Drum Fish,saw glowing Jellyfish,and Plankton. They let you hold a... More

A Day Away provided an awesome private comb jellyfish tour!!! We saw hundreds of beautiful birds, dolphins, comb jellies, and bioluminescence on an incredible guided tour. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend this experience and will definitely return in the warmer months to see the manatees.

We had a wonderful bio kayak tour with josh. We were the only couple and aday away did not upset us by calling it off. We saw pelicans, ospreys, herons, and a dolphin. Well worth the price and a lifetime experience. Comb jelly fish on a star lit lagoon-priceless. A mullet jumped into my fish and our guide Josh helped... More

A Day Away organized an overnight camping trip for our group in Mosquito Lagoon. A Day Away took care of all the logistics, including the camping permit, for a very reasonable price. The back country camping is awesome. You get to a secluded location, on your own island, and camp right on the water front. And because you can haul... More

Prior to the trip I received the following email from A Day Away: “Greetings, We are writing concerning your upcoming Bioluminescent Tour. The summer... More

Recommended the Bioluminescent Tour to visiting family. They had a great time but are still itching from bug bites. Unfortunately when they booked the tour they were not advised to wear long-sleeved clothing or use lots of bug spray. When they asked their guide about the bugs, he just said, "well, it's mind over matter". Not really. Folks who are... More

I recently went on the bioluminescent tour with a group of 3 and we all had such a great time! Our guides were all extremely knowledgable and fun! The bioluminescent water is such an incredible thing to witness! We arrived about an hour early for our 7:30 meet up, to ensure we were there on time and didn't get lost... More
