“nightime kayak tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

did the "bioluminensce" tour - what a kick!!!! It was neat seeing your hands and feet glimmer as you moved them through the water. Catching upside down jellyfish and seeing them shimmer was also a treat!!!

“Night time kayaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Amazing. Did the clear bottom kayaks and it was like the milky way was underneath you. Wear insect repellant though the no-seeums are fierce.
