This was one of the highlights of our trip up north. Absolutely wonderful experience seeing the bioluminescence! Itsell was our guide, and she was extremely knowledgeable and was made for this job! We appreciated the education that we received prior to going out on the water, and she also taught us so much while we were out exploring! Even though we had a pretty bright moon the night that we went, she found plenty of places for us to see the incredible bioluminescence! 10/10 recommend experiencing this if you are in the area!

We would highly recommend anyone that enjoys the water and wants an ultimate experience to take the bioluminescence tour. Like fireflys dancing in the water and equally as memorable was the night sky of many star constellations, shooting stars and the milky way. Our guide and owner, Karen, pointed out many interesting objects and constellations in the night sky with her laser light beam as our six tandem kayaks rafted together. Her knowledge of the bioluminescence was captivating along with her many tips and stories shared of the area and her trips. We also enjoyed a morning kayak with Jake from the same company paddling away with even more useful and interesting knowledge and kayaking skills from both adventures even though we own kayaks and kayak often. Castine is a beautiful, small historic town-like stepping back in time 30 years.

Located in a quaint town in Maine is this little gem of an adventure. We took the biolumenescence tour at night in the Castine bay. The guide was excellent and allowed us to have an incredible time on the water. The pictures posted by people online don't do this justice. This is a must to see for yourself! Our guide made us feel comfortable in the kayaks and made sure we are wll set prior to setting off on our adventure. She provided alot of local details and provided a plethora of information about what we were experiencing.

Karen was a fantastic guide. Her instruction was so informative and helpful. I was worried about kayaking in the open waters but Karen’s instructions were easy to follow and excellent. I would highly recommend Karen and her staff was extremely helpful also.

Karen and Jake were fantastic guides for our night bioluminescent kayak tour across the bay. They took the time to instruct, encourage and reassure our entire group. The weather made the evening a challenge but our safety was well guarded. Fantastic glow in the water and definitely an unforgettable and unique experience. Well worth it!
