It was not a glow paddling as it was advertised. The glow came from light underneath the paddle. This is so misleading! The glow suppose to come from bioluminescent organisms.

Really was an amazing experiance. I just wish it was a bit longer on the water. Nothing like being on the water in the dark with a night light and some friends!

We rented paddle boards at $20 an hour. They also have a $60 rate for 4 hours but I'm glad we only did one hour they are a lot of work. They also rent paddle boats kayaks and other water toys.

I had gone paddle boarding in the past but never at nighttime. The weather was perfect and the water was surprisingly warm! I would definitely recommend this to others. I'll have to come back and do it again with more people
