Bought this as a present for my wife, and we both had a great time! Our guide was wonderful, the bioluminescent kayak tour was excellent. On the way, we literally ran into a massive school of mullet fish that were jumping all around the boat. The stars were out in their full splendor, overall the evening was fantastic. I highly...

This was a Florida favorite. Bioluminescence kayak was amazing. Our guides were knowledgeable about the birds, plants, and general ecosystem. It was incredibly beautiful, a Florida must do! The next day we went on the manate dolphin tour. Again, the best of tour guides, made sure our experince was amazing. Great people, can't wait to book again!

Our family of four, with kids of ages 12 and 11, did a nighttime biolum kayak tour and it was incredible! It was a little windy so we didn't need mosquito repellent at all. The guides were informative, helpful, and so kind.

My husband and I were one canoe, my daughter in a canoe by herself. We had a BLAST. Our guide, Brian, was wonderful! It was at nighttime of course, and so nice out. The kayaks were easy to handle, I have been other places where the kayaks were difficult to use. They were all about safety. We will be doing... More

Loved it! We wished it could go lillte more longer. We went for the bioluminescence tour ,2 days before the no moon day as there were no available slots for the no moon day. We choosed the 8:15pm slot. The place is little difficult to locate on GPS so would suggest to follow the directions that they send you over... More

First time in a kayak! It was a great experience. My daughter and I went out with Ashley and David who were excellent guides. A Day Away's pricing is also better than anyone else's. We would definitely do this again!

It's called Mosquito Lagoon for a reason. The bioluminescence tour was fun. Very informative staff. The mullet will JUMP in your boat, don't panic and scream. The guides are happy to get them out.

Four in our family took the 3 hour manatee/bio combo tour on a Tuesday evening in June 2016. It was one of the highlights of our vacation. Bob was an excellent tour guide who explained lots of things as we went along, was very easy going and friendly. We saw several manatee, a large gator, lots of birds and got... More

Amazing, awesome tour. So beautiful to see the glowing water and fish movements. The night sky was inspiring. The tour guides were patient and helpful with all of us as we kayaked and learned about the flying mullet fish.
